Playing careerEdit

Wise was drafted in the sixth round of the 1997 draft. He made his major league debut on August 2, 2000 with the Anaheim Angels. After missing the entire 2003 season due to injury, he was released by the Angels and signed with the Milwaukee Brewers. The New York Mets signed Wise to a one-year contract on December 18, 2007.

In 209 career appearances, he had an ERA of 4.23. His two best pitches were an 89-92 mile per hour fastball and he is known for his changeup because of his deceptive arm action.[citation needed]


Wise announced his retirement from Major League Baseball at the relatively young age of 33 on March 6, 2009. He currently serves as the pitching coach for the Arizona League Angels.
