    Wade has always known how to get on base. As a sophomore, he walked 57 times, as he finished second on Texas Christian's squad in on-base percentage (.434) despite a complete lack of power. The lefthanded hitter will never be a slugger, but he did show an improved ability to drive the ball this year, which helped him hit .361/.466/.534 while swiping 14 bags in 19 attempts. Wade doesn't project as a regular in pro ball, but his ability to play anywhere in the outfield makes him a potential fourth outfielder. Any manager would appreciate his hard-nosed approach.
