Wade will start at third base and bat ninth Thursday against the Red Sox.

Wade has indirectly benefited from Chris Gittens nursing a sore Achilles' tendon. With the injury relegating Gittens to a bench role for the third game in a row, DJ LeMahieu will shift over to first base, clearing the way for Wade to stick in the lineup at the hot corner. While starting the past two contests, Wade has gone hitless with a walk and a stolen base across seven plate appearances.
