Injured Big Toe Could Cost OF Dewayne Wise Roster Spot

 

JUPITER -- On paper, Dewayne Wise looked like a safe bet to win a spot on the final, 25-man roster as the fourth outfielder. He's had a solid spring, hitting .250 with a pair of home runs and 10 RBI.

 

But, due to a toe injury that has limited his playing time of late, his chances aren't looking so good.

 

This morning, Wise -- a non-roster invitee -- went to have his left big toe examined by a doctor.

 

"It's not good that he's been out," said Admin Beinfest, the Marlins' president of baseball operations. "It's a toe. It's not good. So we'll see. He had a good spring, but it's got to be healthy. It's wait and see on the medical."

 

The injury could open the door for Scott Cousins, who is hitting .228 and -- like Wise -- provides a lefty bat presence off the bench.

I'd feel more comfortable not having a guy who is good for nothing on our roster. Capable OFers are so incredibly easy to come by these days, there are loads of former prospects out there who maybe didn't do as well as hoped and are trying to resurrect their career through a minor league deal, its hard to fathom that if we wanted an experienced backup OFer, we couldn't have gotten one better than Wise. I think the team didn't want to bring in any player with any aspirations of actually being good and wanting any kind of playing time. Not really that smart of a move, since we've got two sophomores who could struggle out there and one guy just making his start at a new, more difficult position.

I'm not too savvy when it comes to contract rules (and I am clueless on Wise's status), but could this be something like Wise is out of options, but the Marlins don't want to put him on the 25 man roster now but anticipate on needing him later?

 

Toe injuries are sometimes suspicious.
