Wade stole a base as a pinch runner for Giancarlo Stanton in Sunday's 5-4 loss to the Red Sox. Wade notched his sixth steal in eight chances with two outs in the ninth inning of Sunday's contest, but Rougned Odor popped out to end the Yankees' hope of tying the game. The 26-year-old Wade continues to see mostly a bench role, as he has two RBI, 17 runs scored, a triple and a double in just 71 plate appearances this year.
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.
Wade was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Thursday. The 26-year-old was demoted to Triple-A last weekend but will rejoin the big-league club with Michael King (finger) landing on the injured list. Wade will be a utility option in the infield, though he's unlikely to see much action with the rest of the infield currently healthy.
Wade was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Sunday. Wade had been with the major-league club for over two months, but he saw sporadic playing time and had started in just two games since May 31. He's hit .224 with a triple, 14 runs, four stolen bases and two RBI in the big leagues this year. The 26-year-old could see more at-bats in the minors, while left-hander Wandy Peralta will remain on the active roster after he served as the 27th man for Sunday's twin bill against the Mets.
Wade stole second base and scored as a pinch runner in Tuesday's 6-5 win over the Blue Jays. Wade was summoned for his speed in the eighth inning of a tie game. He pinch ran for Miguel Andujar and wasted little time stealing second, then came around to score the decisive run on Clint Frazier's double. In addition to his three thefts on the season, Wade is slashing .250/.302/.300 with 10 runs and two RBI.
