Padres' Tyler Wade: Inks minors deal with San Diego
Wade signed a minor-league contract with the Padres on Nov. 3.
Wade spent the large majority of the 2023 season with the Triple-A affiliate of the Athletics. The 28-year-old utility player is a career .217/.293/.300 hitter in 709 plate appearances at the major-league level.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Tyler Wade: Sticks in organization
Wade cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Las Vegas on Saturday.
The veteran infielder was designated for assignment by Oakland on Thursday but will remain in the organization after he passed through waivers unclaimed. Wade struggled to a .623 OPS in 55 plate appearances during his time in the big leagues this year.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Tyler Wade: Designated for assignment
Wade was designated for assignment by the Athletics on Thursday.
Wade spent only a couple of days in the majors this time around and did not see the field. The 28-year-old utility man is a career .217/.293/.300 hitter at baseball's highest level.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Tyler Wade: Selected from Triple-A
The Athletics selected Wade's contract from Triple-A Las Vegas on Tuesday.
Wade was sent outright to Las Vegas in mid-July, but he'll return to Oakland after slashing .297/.366/.405 over 10 games since his demotion. He'll take the place of Manny Pina, who was designated for assignment in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Tyler Wade: Cast off 40-man
Wade was outrighted off Oakland's 40-man roster on Friday.
He is essentially being replaced by Zack Gelof, who is getting the call from Triple-A Las Vegas along with Tyler Soderstrom on Friday. Wade hit .255 with zero home runs and four steals in 55 plate appearances and was worth 0.2 fWAR in his part-time role that included seeing time at four different positions.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Tyler Wade: Sits against lefty
Wade is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Tigers.
The lefty-hitting Wade will cede shortstop duties to the righty-hitting Nick Allen for the second game in a row with Detroit bringing another southpaw (Eduardo Rodriguez) to the bump. Since receiving a call-up from Triple-A Las Vegas on June 17, Wade appears to have settled in as Oakland's primary shortstop versus right-handed pitching. He's slashing .393/.393/.500 in 28 at-bats since his call-up, but Wade hasn't provided any home runs or stolen bases during that stretch.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Tyler Wade: Laces triple in win
Wade went 1-for-3 with a triple and a run in a win over the Yankees on Tuesday.
Wade laced his first three-bagger at the big-league level since 2021 in the third inning and subsequently crossed the plate with the Athletics' first run of the game on Esteury Ruiz's single. The 28-year-old has now hit safely in five of the last six games, and with Kevin Smith going in for a second opinion on the back injury that he currently has no return timetable for, Wade's roster spot appears secure for the time being....

Athletics' Tyler Wade: Multi-hit effort in loss
Wade went 2-for-4 with an RBI single in a loss to the Blue Jays on Saturday.
Wade hit safely for the third time in his last four starts while producing his first multi-hit effort and RBI of the season at the big-league level. The 28-year-old has been a positive addition offensively since his June 17 call-up, hitting .333 (5-for-15) with a double, Saturday's RBI and one run. With Kevin Smith on the injured list due to a back strain that could potentially keep him out beyond 10 days, Wade, who can play second base, third base and across the outfield, is making an early case to potentially hold on to a roster spot even when he returns....

Athletics' Tyler Wade: Doubles, scores in loss
Wade went 1-for-2 with a double and a run in a loss to the Guardians on Wednesday.
Making his second straight start at shortstop, Wade hit safely for the second consecutive game while collecting his first extra-base hit in 13 big-league appearances this season. The well-traveled veteran is slated to remain with the Athletics through Kevin Smith's (back) stint on the injured list, at minimum.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Tyler Wade: Called up to Oakland
The Athletics selected Wade's contract from Triple-A Las Vegas on Saturday.
Wade is up with the big club to replace infielder Kevin Smith, who landed on the injured list with a strained back. Wade had appeared in 10 MLB games this season, stealing four bases despite striking out in eight of his 16 plate appearances. He has a career .211/.290/.293 slash line across parts of seven seasons in the majors, so he's unlikely to carve out a regular role even on a sub-.500 team like Oakland.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Tyler Wade: Outrighted to minors
The Athletics outrighted Wade to Triple-A Las Vegas on Monday.
He'll remain in the organization after he went unclaimed off waivers upon being designated for assignment over the weekend. During his two-week stint in the big leagues, Wade contributed four stolen bases but went just 1-for-13 at the plate.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Tyler Wade: Designated for assignment
Wade was designated for assignment by the Athletics on Saturday, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.
Ramon Laureano (groin) has been activated from the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move. Wade, 28, was just 1-for-13 (.077) with eight strikeouts in 10 games this season with Oakland.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Tyler Wade: Steals third bag of season
Wade went 1-for-3 with a stolen base in a loss to the Rangers on Sunday.
The 28-year-old drew his third start in the last five games and was able to provide some modest contributions out of the No. 9 spot in the order. Wade's speed does give him some upside, but his lack of an everyday role and the fact he's struggled offensively more often than not throughout his big-league stints over the years caps his fantasy value significantly....

Athletics' Tyler Wade: Swipes two bags Saturday
Wade entered Saturday's loss to the Mets as a pinch runner in the bottom of the eighth inning and proceeded to record a steal of both second and third base.
Wade wasted no time wreaking havoc on the bases upon entering, immediately stealing second before also swiping third after a Ramon Laureano groundout and Aledmys Diaz foul pop. The 28-year-old journeyman was ultimately stranded when Conner Capel struck out to end the frame, but his production is an extension of a stint at Triple-A Las Vegas during which he'd already recorded seven steals across his first 10 games....

Athletics' Tyler Wade: Selected to MLB roster
Oakland selected Wade's contract Friday from Triple-A Las Vegas.
Wade has slashed .286/.405/.286 across 43 plate appearances in Triple-A Las Vegas this season while going 7-for-7 on stolen-base attempts. The 28-year-old utility man has never been much of an offensive threat in the majors, but his defensive versatility and speed make him a valuable bench piece for the A's. In order to make room for Wade on the roster, Nick Allen was optioned to Las Vegas, and Cal Stevenson was designated for assignment Friday.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Tyler Wade: Misses roster cut
Manager Mark Kotsay announced Monday that Wade didn't make the Athletics' Opening Day roster, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Wade had a .275/.383/.375 slash line across 25 spring training games but didn't do enough to crack Oakland's Opening Day roster. The veteran infielder played in 67 games for the Angels last season and had a .544 OPS, so he's hardly guaranteed to see time in the majors in 2023.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Tyler Wade: Solid spring continues Tuesday
Wade, who went 2-for-2 with an RBI double in Tuesday's Cactus League win over the Angels, is now hitting .300 across 36 spring training plate appearances.
Wade also has a triple, a pair of RBI and five runs on his Cactus League resume and has struck out an acceptable six times overall. In camp as a non-roster invitee, the 28-year-old is making a solid case for an Opening Day spot, and his prior experience playing every position besides catcher and first base gives his candidacy added appeal....

Tyler Wade: Hits free agency
Wade elected free agency Wednesday, per Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre's official site.
Wade was traded from the Angels to the Yankees in mid-July, but he never got the chance to play in the majors for New York. He posted a .218/.272/.272 line with the Angels, though he did manage 22 runs scored and eight stolen bases across 163 plate appearances.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Tyler Wade: Traded to the Yankees
Wade was traded from the Angels to the Yankees on Thursday in exchange for a player to be named later, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.
Wade was outrighted to Triple-A Salt Lake on Friday after he was designated for assignment and cleared waivers, but he will now return to the Yankees, the team he spent the first five years of his career with. The 27-year-old will report to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and will be a likely candidate for a call-up at some point this summer. Wade posted a .218 average with one homer, eight RBI, 22 runs and eight stolen bases over 147 at-bats in 67 games with the Angels this season.... See More ... See Less
