Wade was added to the Twins' 40-man roster Tuesday, Aaron Gleeman of Baseball Prospectus reports. The Twins added the outfielder to the 40-man roster in order to protect him from the Rule 5 draft. Wade put up solid numbers at Double-A over the past two years, but he was a bit older than the competition at that level. He also scuffled a bit upon a promotion to Triple-A, hitting .229 with four home runs and 21 RBI in 352 plate appearances. He has excellent contact rates throughout his professional career, however, and his walk rate sat above 10 percent at most stops in the minors. If the 24-year-old can hit a bit better at the start of the season, he could find his way to Target Field, though his lack of a truly standout tool limits his upside.
Wade (hamstring) was activated from the minor-league DL on Friday, Brandon Warne of Zone Coverage reports. Wade only spent the minimum seven days on the shelf after suffering a right hamstring strain last week. Across 50 games with Triple-A Rochester this year, he's slashed .250/.376/.378 with three home runs, 14 RBI and five stolen bases.
Wade was placed on the seven-day disabled list at Triple-A Rochester with a right hamstring strain, Jake Depue of 1500 ESPN reports. The strain is reportedly not a serious one, but he'll miss at least a week. The 24-year-old is hitting .250/.376/.378 in 50 games since he was promoted to Rochester.
Wade is set to join Triple-A Rochester on Saturday, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports. Wade moved up to Triple-A after Jake Cave was promoted to the big leagues. Wade was hitting .298 with seven homers and 27 RBI through 46 games at Double-A Chattanooga.
Wade was assigned to minor-league camp Sunday, Dan Hayes of The Athletic Minnesota reports. Wade played well for Minnesota this spring, going 7-for-23 (.304) with two doubles and eight walks over 17 games. After hitting .292/.397/.408 across 117 games at Double-A Chattanooga last season, Wade could make his way up to Triple-A Rochester during the upcoming season.
