Tyler Wade had a single, a walk and a run scored in an Opening Day win over the Nationals on Thursday.
Wade picked up the start at second base as DJ LeMahieu was not ready to go on Thursday. The 25-year-old utility infielder is expected to play a bench role this season and is not worth grabbing in fantasy leagues.
If DJ LeMahieu isn't ready for Opening Day, Tyler Wade is ready to step in for the Yankees at second base according to Bryan Hoch of MLB.com.
Wade definitely has a chance to make the final roster of the Yankees with his ability to play second base and shortstop. The utility infielder may get an opportunity to start if LeMahieu isn't ready to go after testing positive for COVID-19. Fantasy owners should keep an eye on the situation.
Tyler Wade was removed from Saturday's game against the Mets with a wrist injury, but the issue doesn't appear to be serious.
Wade said that he just rolled onto his wrist and wanted to stay in the game. He'll ice his wrist but won't need any tests. He shouldn't miss much time and should be able to resume his fight for a roster spot soon.
