Wade was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre following Tuesday's win over the Mariners.
Wade found himself on the bench for the last four games as the Yankees have finally started getting players back off the injured list, so this move was basically just a matter of time. Jonthan Loaisiga will likely be the corresponding move when he is called up for Wednesday's start.
Wade is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Twins, Erik Boland of Newsday reports.
Wade will head to the bench for the second day in a row, signaling that his time as an everyday player for the Yankees has come to an end. The speed and multi-position versatility Wade offers could help him stick around as a utility man even as the team gets more hitters back from the injured list, but his opportunities may only grow scarcer.
Wade finished 2-for-3 with a walk, stolen base, RBI and two runs Wednesday in the Yankees' 6-5 win over the Angels.
Wade picked up his fourth straight start Wednesday, including his second consecutive appearance in left field in place of Clint Frazier (ankle). With the Yankees moving Frazier to the injured list after the contest, Wade tentatively appears to have a line on an everyday role, though the club's recent acquisition of outfielder Cameron Maybin could change that. At least for now, the Yankees' ever-growing IL should keep Wade on the radar in AL-only formats.
Wade is hitting eighth and starting in left field against the Angels on Tuesday.
Wade slots in as the left fielder as Clint Frazier gets the day off after hurting his ankle while running the bases in Monday's game. Frazier said he thinks the injury is minor and he intends to play through it, but if he ends up needing a couple more days off, Wade could continue to soak up some of those at-bats.
Wade is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the Royals.
Wade retreats to the bench after starting back-to-back games. The utility man recorded a pair of hits in Friday's contest, nearly matching his output (three) from his other 18 at-bats this season.
Wade went 2-for-3 with a run scored Friday against the Royals.
Wade was the only Yankee to register multiple hits on the day, marking his first two-hit performance of the campaign. The 24-year-old is hitting .238 with an RBI and a stolen base through nine games this season and has struggled to see consistent playing time to this point.
Wade is in the lineup, playing second base and hitting ninth against the Royals on Thursday.
Wade has sat the club's last three games, but he'll slide back into the lineup for this matchup with the Royals. He hasn't done much at the dish since getting called up from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on April 2, with just three hits in 17 at-bats and no homers.
Wade is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the White Sox, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports.
Wade has seen his opportunities increase since Troy Tulowitzki (calf) landed on the injured list, but the 24-year-old still finds himself in a timeshare at the keystone. With southpaw Carlos Rodon on the bump for Chicago, the lefty-hitting Wade will move to the bench while DJ LeMahieu mans second base.
Wade will start at second base and bat ninth Thursday against the Orioles, Erik Boland of Newsday reports.
The Yankees will lean on Gleyber Torres as their primary shortstop while Troy Tulowitzki (calf) is sidelined, but the latter's move to the injured list could open up a regular lineup spot for Wade, who has primarily served as a utility man during his previous stints in the big leagues. The 24-year-old has compiled a horrid .162/.216/.246 batting line (21 wRC+) across 139 career MLB plate appearances, so Wade probably won't be deserving of much immediate interest outside of AL-only formats.
Wade is starting at second base and hitting eighth in the Yankees' lineup Tuesday against the Tigers, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports.
Wade was recalled after Miguel Andujar hit the injured list with a torn labrum, and he'll slot into action immediately as the eight hitter in Tuesday's lineup. Wade was sent down to Triple-A Scranton Wilkes-Barre despite an excellent spring training at the plate, with a .308/.345/.500 slash line over 55 at-bats, so he'll look to carry that form over now that he's been provided with the opportunity back at the big-league level.
Wade was recalled by the Yankees on Monday, Jack Curry of YES Network reports.
Wade had a strong spring but couldn't crack the big-league roster. It didn't take long for him to get another opportunity, however, with Miguel Andujar heading to the injured list due to a shoulder problem in a corresponding move. Wade could see time in both the infield and outfield in the near future, as Giancarlo Stanton (biceps) also hit the injured list Monday.
Wade was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Sunday.
Wade hit .319/.360/.532 with a homer, seven doubles and three stolen bases this spring (18 games), but it wasn't enough for him to earn a spot on the Yankees' Opening Day roster. Mike Tauchman, who was acquired from the Rockies this weekend, now looks poised to break camp as New York's fourth outfielder. Wade's defensive versatility should give him a path back to the big-league roster, but he'll toil away in the minors for now.
Wade (hip) will start center field and hit ninth in Saturday's Grapefruit League game against the Blue Jays, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.
Wade exited Wednesday's exhibition versus the Astros due to tightness in both of his hips and was sidelined for the past two days as a result. The 24-year-old apparently only required a couple days of rest to overcome the injury, keeping his hopes of cracking the Opening Day roster alive. Through 47 plate appearances this spring, Wade is slashing .318/.378/.439 with a home run and three steals.
Wade was cleared by team trainers after leaving Wednesday's game against the Astros with hip tightness, Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News reports.
It doesn't appear that the issue will affect Wade's readiness for the regular season. The utility man is expected to break camp with the team in a bench role.
Wade left Wednesday's game against Houston with tightness in both his hips, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.
Wade has a shot to fill a bench role for the Yankees, though he'll have to be healthy to do that. Whether or not the issues are serious enough to threaten his availability for Opening Day should become clear after further tests.
Manager Aaron Boone said Thursday that Wade's defensive versatility is a major factor in how the Yankees intend to set their bench, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.
The Yankees will be carrying a three-man bench, and barring an injury to someone, it would seem that one of those bench spots will go to Austin Romine and one will go to whoever is not starting out of DJ LeMahieu and Troy Tulowitzki. That leaves Wade to compete primarily with Clint Frazier, who has more pedigree and could benefit from getting everyday at-bats. Wade is capable of playing second base, shortstop, third base and all three outfield spots.
Wade went 1-for-2 with a solo home run and a walk in Thursday's game against the Pirates.
Wade continued his hot start at the dish, as he's now collected five hits in eight at-bats and has two RBI along with a stolen base to show for it. The 24-year-old appeared in 36 games in 2018 for the Yankees, although he hit just .167 with one home run and five RBI over 66 at-bats. If he does break camp with the big-league team, he'll likely be used in a utility role.
Wade didn't make the 25-man roster for the ALDS against Boston, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.
Wade was active for the AL Wild Card Game, but he won't take the field for New York's upcoming series against the Red Sox. CC Sabathia and Stephen Tarpley will replace Wade and Kyle Higashioka on the squad.
Wade was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Saturday, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports.
Wade is back with the big club for the final month of the season after spending most of August in the minors. The 23-year-old has struggled during his time with the Yankees this season, slashing just .186/.238/.305 across 25 games. He'll likely be used off the bench in a utility role down the stretch.
Wade was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre prior to Thursday's tilt against Boston.
Wade went 1-for-5 with a walk and two strikeouts in two games since being called up to the big club July 27. The Yankees recalled Luis Cessa and Luke Voit in corresponding moves.
