Wade was optioned to the Twins' alternate training site Saturday.
Wade's latest stint on the big-league roster lasted three weeks. He got into nine games, posting a .713 OPS. Luis Arraez (knee/ankle) returned from the injured list in a corresponding move.
Wade was recalled by the Twins on Saturday, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Wade spent several days at the alternate training site, but he'll return to the major-league club Saturday. The 26-year-old saw inconsistent playing time during his first stint with the team this year and hit .200 with a double and one RBI over 15 at-bats.
Wade was optioned to the Twins' alternate training site Tuesday, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports.
Wade has served as a reserve outfielder at times this season but has played very infrequently, grabbing three hits in 15 at-bats. With Byron Buxton returning from a shoulder injury in a corresponding move, Wade is no longer needed even in that minor role.
Wade isn't in the lineup for Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Tigers.
Wade wasn't in the lineup for Saturday's matinee, and he'll sit for the second game of the twin bill as well. Jake Cave will start in center field during Game 2.
Wade is not in the starting lineup Saturday against the Tigers.
Wade and Jake Cave have been sharing starting duties in center field while Byron Buxton (shoulder) is on the injured list but with both of them struggling at the plate, Twins manager Rocco Baldelli has opted to start neither of them and instead shift Max Kepler over to center while placing Marwin Gonzalez in right field Saturday.
Wade is starting in center field Wednesday for the second day in a row against a right-handed pitcher (Mike Clevinger).
He hit sixth Tuesday and is batting eighth Wednesday. Wade and Jake Cave have been the two center field options with Byron Buxton (shoulder) on the injured list. Cave has 11 strikeouts and zero walks in 34 at-bats over his last 10 games, so Wade is getting a chance to show what he can do. Wade hasn't been much better, striking out four times with zero walks in nine at-bats since getting recalled, but he does have a stellar plate discipline track record in the minors. Buxton could return as early as next week.
Wade was recalled from the Twins' alternate training site Thursday, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports.
Wade was sent down by the Twins at the beginning of August, but he'll return to the major-league roster after Byron Buxton (shoulder) was placed on the 10-day injured list. The 26-year-old appeared in just one game as a defensive replacement during his first stint with the team but could see slightly more playing time in the coming days with Buxton sidelined.
Wade was optioned by the Twins on Monday, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.
Wade made the team's Opening Day roster but played a very insignificant role in the early going, appearing in just a single game as a defensive replacement and failing to receive a plate appearance. The Twins will add an extra reliever, Caleb Thielbar, in a corresponding move.
Wade has made Minnesota's 30-man Opening Day roster, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.
Wade could get playing time in center field if Byron Buxton (foot) isn't able to play in the first few games. Wade could get regular playing time if Buxton is out for an extended period, but the Twins would likely use a mix of Jake Cave, Marwin Gonzalez and Wade to fill Buxton's spot. When Buxton returns, Wade will be a defensive replacement and pinch runner off the bench.
Wade appears set to make Minnesota's initial expanded 30-man roster and could see early playing time if Byron Buxton remains sidelined with a foot injury, MLB.com reports.
Wade has been impressive in summer camp with a multi-hit effort in Friday's scrimmage. He could get time in center field with Buxton out, though the Twins could also play Max Kepler in center field and play Jake Cave in right field. Wade was optioned to Triple-A Rochester before spring training was shut down due to the pandemic, but he looks set for a reserve role with major-league rosters expanding to 30 players for the first two weeks of the 60-game season.
Wade was included in Minnesota's 60-man player pool ahead of summer camp before the 2020 season begins, MLB.com reports.
Wade was optioned to Triple-A Rochester before spring training was shut down due to the pandemic. He was battling Jake Cave and Willians Astudillo for a final roster spot before he was sent down. With major league rosters expanding to 30 players for the first two weeks of the 60-game season, Wade appears likely to win a reserve outfielder role.
Wade was optioned to Triple-A Rochester on Thursday, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports.
As expected, Wade is headed to the minors to open the season, leaving Jake Cave and Willians Astudillo to compete for Minnesota's final roster spot. In 11 appearances before spring training was put on hold, Wade put together a .286/.423/.381 slash line.
Wade is in the mix for the final spot on the 26-man roster along with Willians Astudillo and Jake Cave. Wade is hitting .313 (5-for-16) with a .914 OPS this spring.
Wade is likely a long shot to make the roster, but the Twins could keep both Jake Cave and Wade if Byron Buxton isn't ready to begin the season due to his recovery from shoulder surgery. Wade's ability to draw walks and play center field led to his callup for 26 games last season. But after hitting just .246/.392/.356 at Triple-A and .196/.348/.375 in the majors, he'll likely need to show more with his bat at Triple-A before getting an extended chance in the majors.
Wade is not on the Twins' ALDS roster.
Wade's ability to play center field earned him some playing time down the stretch with Byron Buxton (shoulder) sidelined, though his .196/.348/.375 slash line wasn't particularly impressive. The Twins will carry just three true outfielders (Jake Cave, Max Kepler and Eddie Rosario), but Marwin Gonzalez and Ehire Adrianza can fill in at the corner outfield spots when necessary.
The Twins reinstated Wade (thumb) from the 10-day injured list Sunday.
Wade spent nearly two months on the IL with a dislocated right thumb, which he sustained in just his second career game at the big-league level. After wrapping up a 10-game minor-league rehab assignment, Wade is healthy again, but he's not expected to see much more than the occasional spot start or pinch-hitting opportunity in September while the Twins aim to improve their playoff positioning.
Wade (thumb) is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment this weekend, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports.
Wade was supposed to start playing in the Gulf Coast League, but due to rain he'll instead begin the rehab stint with Low-A Cedar Rapids or Double-A Pensacola. The 25-year-old has been out with a dislocated right thumb since early July and figures to require a decent number of games in the minors to get back up to speed.
Wade (thumb) is no longer wearing a splint, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports.

Wade (thumb) threw Tuesday but remains unable to catch, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports.
Wade has been out with a dislocated thumb on his glove hand since early July. Given that he's still not able to use the thumb, his return doesn't appear to be imminent.
Wade (thumb) was placed on the 10-day injured list Saturday, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.
Wade dislocated his right thumb while attempting to catch a home run Saturday against the Rangers. He'll get 10 days off to heal. Jake Cave was recalled from Triple-A Rochester in a corresponding move.
