The Yankees announced on Thursday that they have brought back infielder/outfielder Tyler Wade in a trade with the Angels in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations.
Wade was assigned to Triple-A Scranton Wilkes-Barre, but as the season goes on, he could become a valuable piece as depth is necessary.
The 27-year-old came up through the Yankees system, as he was drafted by the team in the fourth round of the 2013 First-Year Player Draft out of Murrieta Valley High School in California.
Over parts of six Major League seasons (2017-22), Wade has a .214 batting average (124-580) with seven home runs, 41 RBI, 103 runs scored, 58 walks, 24 doubles, two triples, and 38 stolen bases in 331 games.
This season, with the Angels, he was hitting .218 (32-147) with one home run, eight RBI, 10 walks, 22 runs scored, five doubles, and eight stolen bases in 67 games.
The Angels designated Wade for assignment on July 3, and he cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Salt Lake on July 8.
