2021 Fantasy Outlook
Wade's ability to draw walks and play center field have seen him called up as a reserve outfielder and spot starter at times the past two seasons, but his lack of power has kept him from winning any regular role in the offense. He has a 13.3% walk rate in the majors after strong walk rates in the minors and has made good contact despite a 20.5% strikeout rate in just 44 plate appearances. Wade can can capably play all three outfield spots (+1 to -1 DRS at all three the past two seasons) plus first base and his left-handed bat could help a platoon or be of use off the bench. Wade could win a reserve role due to his defense this spring, but more likely continues to shuffle between Minnesota and Triple-A. Read Past Outlooks

ANALYSIS
Wade went hitless with a strikeout in three at-bats during Game 1, and he'll get a breather with lefty Julio Urias on the mound for the Dodgers. Austin Slater will start in right field and bat third.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2018
2017
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.
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.
