BRONX, N.Y. — After designating him for assignment, the New York Yankees have traded utilityman Tyler Wade to the Los Angeles Angels for a player to be named later or cash considerations.
Wade played parts of five seasons in the Bronx, from 2017 to 2021. Last season, Wade batted .268 and stole 17 bases. Wade saw time at shortstop, second base, third base, and even the outfield last year.
Perhaps Halos skipper, who managed Ben Zobrist in Tampa and Chicago, believes he can unlock the “Ben Zobrist with wheels” that Yankees brass sold us for the past umpteen years. That or maybe a poor man’s Chone Figgins.
