Player Outlook
A string of knee issues derailed LaMonte Wade in 2022 and prevented him from building on his breakout showing with the Giants from 2021, but he managed to stay mostly healthy in 2023 and returned to form as a reliable leadoff presence for San Francisco. He registered a .373 on-base percentage, which ranked 13th-best among all qualified major-league hitters, and he struck out only 95 times in 519 plate appearances while drawing 76 walks. Wade doesn't have a ton of raw power -- he finished in just the 32nd percentile last year in average exit velocity -- but the 30-year-old first baseman and corner outfielder should continue to be a fairly appealing option in OBP leagues and might be worthy of late-round or waiver-wire consideration in standard formats for his potential to rack up runs scored. It's worth nothing, however, that the offseason arrival of Jung Hoo Lee could seriously curtail Wade's tablesetting opportunities.

  • Giants' LaMonte Wade: Gets aboard six times Wednesday

    Wade went 3-for-3 with three walks, one RBI and two runs scored in Wednesday's 9-5 extra-inning win over the Pirates. This was Wade's first three-hit game of the year, as well as his second three-walk effort. It's arguably the best example of what he's brought to the table in 2024 -- decent contact hitting and remarkable patience at the plate. Wade is batting .340 with a 19:12 BB:K over 19 games in May. For the season, the first baseman is at a .336/.484/.431 slash line with two home runs, 16 RBI, 20 runs scored, five doubles and one stolen base over 153 plate appearances. Wade briefly saw a full-time role earlier in the month when Jorge Soler was on the injured list, but since Soler's return, Wade has returned to a strong-side platoon with Wilmer Flores at first base.

  • Giants' LaMonte Wade: Idle against lefty

  • Giants' LaMonte Wade: Knocks second homer

    Wade went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run and two walks in Sunday's 6-5 extra-inning win over the Reds. Wade has gotten on base in his last 13 games, going 11-for-34 with a 13:10 BB:K in that span. While he's been an on-base machine this season, he's struggled to hit for power -- his homer Sunday was his second of the year, and he's added just five doubles over 40 contests. Wade is slashing .340/.480/.457 with 14 RBI, 14 runs scored and one stolen base over 123 plate appearances. He's just shy of being a qualified hitter due to beginning the year in a strong-side platoon role, but he's seen more opportunities versus southpaws since Jorge Soler (shoulder) went on the injured list Wednesday.

  • Giants' LaMonte Wade: Reaches four times in win

    Wade went 1-for-2 with three walks and two RBI in Tuesday's 5-0 win over the Rockies. Wade reached base four times and produced a key two-run single in the fourth to extend the Giants' lead to 4-0. Wade strictly operates in a platoon against right-handed pitching, though if he had enough plate appearances to qualify, he'd be leading the majors with a .485 OBP and 21.4 percent walk rate. He's now reached safely in eight straight games and is slashing .351/.485/.442 with a homer, 10 RBI, 12 runs and a 21:26 BB:K in 101 plate appearances.

  • Giants' LaMonte Wade: Launches first home run

    Wade went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run and two runs scored while also drawing two walks in Saturday's win over Tampa Bay. Wade singled in his first at-bat before coming around to score San Francisco's first run of the game on a Michael Conforto double. The first baseman then launched a two-out, two-run home run off Ryan Pepiot in the top of the fifth to extend the Giants' lead to three runs, marking his first long ball of the season. Wade is now batting .375 in April with three RBI, five runs scored and seven walks to only five strikeouts. He's also hit safely in six of his last seven games.

  • Giants' LaMonte Wade: Notches first steal

    Wade went 0-for-2 with a walk and a stolen base in Friday's 2-1 loss to the Rays. Wade was hitless for the first time since April 5, but he was able to make an impact on the basepaths. He's not known for speed with a career high of six steals back in 2021 and no more than two attempts in either of the last two campaigns. The first baseman is hitting .343 with one RBI, five runs scored, three doubles and no home runs over 41 plate appearances this season. Wade continues to see a strong-side platoon role and is unlikely to get many at-bats versus southpaws at all.

  • Giants' LaMonte Wade: Likely to platoon again

    Wade has gone 3-for-14 with a home run and three RBI over his first five Cactus League games. Wade remains a strong-side platoon option at first base. The Giants' signing of Matt Chapman, who is likely for an everyday role at third base, has displaced J.D. Davis. Righty hitters like Davis and Wilmer Flores could fill in at first base against opposing southpaws. Wade partially got back to his 2021 form last season, hitting .256 with a .790 OPS, 17 home runs, 45 RBI and 64 runs scored across a career-high 135 games.

  • Giants' LaMonte Wade: Provides offense in loss

    Wade went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run and a walk in Sunday's 3-2 extra-inning loss to the Dodgers. Wade tied the game at 2-2 with his fifth-inning blast. He'd sat out the last two games with the Giants facing left-handed starters in each of those contests. Through 17 games in September, Wade has gone 18-for-52 (.346) with four homers and 10 RBI. The first baseman is at a .262/.376/.428 slash line with 17 long balls, 45 RBI, 63 runs scored and two stolen bases through 130 games this season in a strong-side platoon role.
