|Player Review: Brett Wisely. The fact that we're talking about Brett Wisely right now is a bit problematic. If you were to go back in time to last January and whisper in the ear of your past self that Brett Wisely would get 130 plate appearances in 2023, you'd probably slump your shoulders and nod numbly in knowing defeat. Chances are Wisely logging nearly 245 defensive innings at second base and nearly 100 in the outfield indicates the San Francisco Giants' season didn't quite go as planned. The plan was Thairo Estrada not fracturing his hand; the plan was to have centerfield not be a black hole of mediocrity indiscriminately pulling veteran and prospect alike into its center; the plan was Brandon Crawford's swan song not to pitch flat; the plan was for most midseason call-ups not to look completely bamboozled by big league pitching; while the plan for Brett Wisely was as a bench bat, late-inning defensive replacement, a spot start against a right-hander to give Estrada a breather, a closer in a blow-out, a quadruple-A player.
