    2019 Tyler Wade Performance Thread

    He got sent down to make room for Loaisiga, so I don't when he will perform next. His .520 OPS is the second-worst among Yankees with any amount of plate appearances who aren't pitchers. Andujar has a .379 OPS.

    With infielders Estrada, LeMahieu, Urshela, Andujar, Voit and Torres in the lineup and Wade not really an outfielder and him being weak at the plate, Cashman didn't lose any sleep sending him down to the minors.

    I don't see how Tyler Wade has a future with this team. He's been up enough times for everyone to see what he brings to the table, and it isn't much.

    ESPN's Tim Kurkjian tweeted that Tampa Bay has a reliever named Chaz Roe, and that there could have been the matchup Roe v. Wade. I responded that it's unlikely but possible if there's another injury and Wade gets called up.

    He can play a bunch of positions and give you good defense at a few of them. He has speed, also. But it doesn't look like he'll ever be a major league hitter.

    In the Yankees organization, it seems if your first name is Tyler (Tyler Clippard, Tyler Austin and Tyler Wade), you won't succeed.

    Tyler Olson had one game for us in 2016 and now has a 4.50 ERA in Cleveland's bullpen.

    Wade will do well with a team where there is no pressure on him. The Marlins, Tampa or Seattle seem to be a good fit for him.

    Let Bird and Wade console each other in AAA.

    Anybody know what he's been doing in AAA lately?

    He's likely to be spelling Le Mahieu and/or Urshela for a while.

    With DJ not having played yesterday, not likely today and tomorrow being an off day, he'll have three days of rest. Wade is adept defensively.

    I see him being included in a big trade with Clint and others for a pitcher in the next few days.

    Being defensively challenged, Clint Frazier has value as an AL DH. Cashman won't be trading with Wild Card contending Indians, Rays, A's and Red Sox. Likely dance partners are the Texas Rangers, Angels, and Blue Jays who might welcome Frazier into their fold.

    So, I guess we’re just supposed to pretend like Estrada isn’t a better player?
    David Ortiz tested positive for performance enhancing drugs in 2003.

    Wade was promoted. Estrada had a higher OPS for the Yankees than for SWB. By Monday August 5 the Yankees will need a starter other than the four they have, and Sabathia can't be back by then.

    Re: 2019 Tyler Wade Performance Thread

    He became the first Yankee this year to have two steals of third. Our six steals of third are Torres on April 22, Wade on April 25, Maybin on May 29, Hicks on June 11, Tauchman on August 6, and Wade on August 28 (today). Today is Wade's 25th game. I wonder what the record is for fewest games by a player who led his team in steals of third. If they offered odds on it, you could have made a lot of money betting that Wade would be the first Yankee to have two steals of third. Among fast runners, Hicks and Ellsbury started the season injured, but Gardner was healthy then and has been healthy most the year.

    To bad the kid can't hit a lick. His speed and glove are very good.

    I don't dislike him and wish him well, but with his bat the existence of Estrada makes him not needed for the Yankees future plans.
    Heck, if anything with Kyle "forum favorite/s" Holder likely being in AAA next season, he's essentially going to be the replacement of Wade with 1) more options left which is important for the Yankees considering usage and role, 2) better glove which is important for the sake of defensive replacement, and 3) at worst be equally bad with the bat as Wade, but with a tiny sliver of chance that he might actually be able to hit as he has not proven to be unable to hit in MLB yet.

    I used to be hopeful, but now (since 2018) I just expect the ground out or strike out.
    Supports: smart spending, roster flexibility and depth. Does not support: reckless spending and extreme prospect hugging.

    And that was a shot to just about the deepest part of the OF.

    Looks better than Frazier in the outfield.
