24-Year-Old Second Baseman2B
New York Yankees
2019 Fantasy Outlook
At press time, Wade is the projected starting second baseman for the Yankees. That said, you just know the club will be shopping for upgrades in order to prevent Boston from repeating as World Series champs. Maybe in other years, Wade could stick in the lineup and hit ninth while utilizing his speed down in the order to help set the table for the top of the lineup. Wade was a solid OBP guy with good speed throughout the minors, but that has not shown up yet in his numbers at the major-league level where he has looked very much overmatched. Wade has two years of options left, so the Yankees are not forced to use him right away, but if he can begin to get on base at the big-league level, this could be 20 steals freely available for reserve rosters in AL-only formats.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
2016
Wade always had impressive speed, but was unable to add much with his bat until the 2017 season. In 85 games with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre -- his first stint at the upper level of the minors -- Wade slashed .310/.382/.460 to go along with 26 steals in 31 attempts. Those efforts earned the then 22-year-old a series of promotions to the majors over the second half of the season, but his bat had trouble catching up to big-league pitching. The offseason departures of Starlin Castro and Chase Headley leave a couple of openings in the infield, but Wade will likely be passed over in favor of a more highly touted prospect in Gleyber Torres and/or Miguel Andujar. Still, the 23-year-old could get a look in spring training for a utility role and figures to be near the top of the organizational depth chart if the Yankees need additional infield help at any point in 2018.
Wade is a speedy shortstop with a decent glove but not much power, though he did crack a career-high five home runs in 133 games at Double-A in 2016. Wade also drew 63 walks during that time period, making the left-handed batter an ideal leadoff hitter. His best asset is his speed, though, as Wade swiped 27 bases this season after stealing 33 in 2015. A fourth-round pick in 2013, Wade is pretty much at his ceiling. He can draw a walk, steal a base and play shortstop fairly well. However, he has not hit above .275 in any year of full-season ball, and without much power to speak of, may not end up as much more than a utility player in the big leagues. Wade should begin the 2017 campaign in Triple-A, with the chance to make his big-league debut before the year is finished.
Wade got his first taste of Double-A ball in 2015, but he struggled mightily at the level to the tune of a .204/.224/.265 line in 29 games. It isn't too big of a concern though, given that he was just 20 years old and was coming off a very solid campaign at High-A in which he hit .280/.349/.353 and stole 31 bases. The shortstop possesses virtually no power at the plate, but had proven at the lower levels to be a consistent average hitter. He projects as a strong defender, but Didi Gregorius and fellow prospect Jorge Mateo figure to have shortstop accounted for in the foreseeable future. Wade should get a chance to prove himself at Double-A to start 2016, but a big league debut will likely have to wait until 2017.
