LaMonte Wade
26-Year-Old OutfielderOF
Minnesota Twins AAA
2020 Fantasy Outlook
Wade's ability to draw walks and play center field led to his callup in July as a temporary fill-in after hitting just .246/.392/.356 at Triple-A. He dislocated his right thumb after just his second big-league game and missed two months. He returned to play in some key spots in the September pennant race but hit just .196 in 69 plate appearances. Wade did draw 11 walks (15.9 BB%) and his excellent bat-to-ball skill translated against big-league pitching (13.0 K%). It was a very small sample, but he used the whole field and logged a respectable 21.3 LD%, so he could fare better in a larger stint in the majors. He was primarily called up for his ability to capably play all three outfield spots (-1 DRS at all three). Wade could win a reserve role due to his defense this spring, but he'll likely need to show more with his bat at Triple-A before getting an extended chance in the majors. Read Past Outlooks

Headed to minors
OFMinnesota Twins  AAA
March 26, 2020
Wade was optioned to Triple-A Rochester on Thursday, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports.
ANALYSIS
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.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
The 24-year-old reached Double-A Chattanooga last year, hitting for a strong .292/.397/.408 slash line, but was a bit older than his competition at age 23. Wade is a very challenging prospect to rank for fantasy purposes, as he can clearly hit, he just doesn't do much else. His upside may be hitting .290, get on base at a .390 clip and hit 10 home runs with 10 steals. He'll likely move up to Triple-A this summer and could reach majors in the second half.
Wade hit .318 with a .904 OPS at Low-A Cedar Rapids, as the 2015 ninth-round draft pick continues to impress at each step of the minors. His upside may be limited however, since at age 22 last season he was older than the competition. He doesn't add much speed for fantasy purposes, but his high contact rate and decent power could lead him to continue to surprise.
