Wade is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against Atlanta, Amy Gutierrez of the Giants' official site reports. Wade will take a seat for the first time since Sept. 12, ending a stretch of six consecutive starts in which he went 6-for-21 with three extra-base hits, five runs, four RBI and four walks. The righty-hitting Darin Ruf will join the lineup as a replacement for the lefty-hitting Wade, who sits with southpaw Max Fried on the bump.
Wade went 1-for-2 with a solo home run and a walk in Friday's 6-5 extra-innings win over Atlanta. Wade deposited his 18th homer of the year into McCovey Cove to give San Francisco a 4-2 lead in the fourth inning. The 27-year-old has seen part-time work in September, but he's posted a .341/.442/.568 slash line in his last 52 plate appearances. For the year, Wade is batting .264 with 50 RBI, 48 runs scored and six stolen bases.
Wade isn't starting Monday's game against the Rockies, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports. Wade went 2-for-5 with two doubles, a run and a stolen base across the last two games but will head to the bench with left-hander Kyle Freeland on the mound for the Rockies. Kris Bryant will shift to left field while Mauricio Dubon enters the lineup in center.
Wade went 1-for-1 with a double, a hit-by-pitch and a stolen base in Saturday's 6-1 loss to the Dodgers. The 27-year-old has started in just one of the last four games, as Kris Bryant has settled into seeing most of the at-bats in right field. Wade didn't do himself any favors by hitting .237 across 26 games in August. He could see more playing time in left field after Alex Dickerson (hamstring) went on the injured list Saturday. Wade is slashing .254/.326/.520 with 17 home runs, six stolen bases, 43 RBI and 38 runs scored across 287 plate appearances.
Wade went 2-for-4 with a double and a stolen base in Sunday's 9-0 loss to Atlanta. San Francisco couldn't get much going Sunday, with Wade the only batter to record multiple hits or an extra-base hit in the contest. He's now stolen a base in consecutive contests, and he has five thefts for the year. The 27-year-old is slashing .249/.317/.514 with 17 home runs, 43 RBI, 38 runs scored and 10 doubles in 273 plate appearances.
