Tyler Wade
Name: Tyler Dean Wade
Born: Nov 23, 1994 in Murrieta, Calif. USA
High School: Murrieta Valley HS, Murrieta, Calif.
Ht.: 6'1" / Wt.: 185 lbs
Bats: L / Throws: R
Drafted in the 4th round (134th overall) by the New York Yankees in 2013 (signed for $371,300)
Wade played at the Jesse Flores Memorial All-Star Game last fall but mostly flew under the scouting radar until this spring, when he has hit .524 with six doubles and six triples through 84 at-bats. He also impressed with his defense at shortstop, showing enough range, actions and above-average arm strength to give him a chance to stick at the position. At 6-foot-1, 178 pounds, Wade is a live-bodied athlete with above-average speed. He has a handsy swing and a line-drive approach, and he could become an average hitter down the road. He needs to get stronger, and he projects for below-average power. A San Diego State recruit, Wade has draft helium and could go off the board as early as the fourth or fifth round.
