The Yankees announced on Monday that they have traded INF/OF Tyler Wade to the Los Angeles Angels in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations. Wade had been designated for assignment amid a flurry of roster moves ahead of Major League Baseball’s Friday deadline for clubs to set 40-man rosters.
Wade, 26, batted .268 (34-for-127) with 31 R, 5 doubles, 1 triple, 5 RBI, 16 BB and 17 SB in 103 games in 2021. Over parts of five Major League seasons (2017-21), the left-handed batter has hit .212 (92-for-433) with 81 R, 19 doubles, 2 triples, 6 HR, 33 RBI, 48 BB and 30 SB in 264 games.
The Murrieta, Calif., native was originally selected by the Yankees in the fourth round of the 2013 First-Year Player Draft out of Murrieta Valley High School (Calif.).
