Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Hit: 50 | Power: 40 | Run: 50 | Arm: 50 | Field: 50 | Overall: 45

Wade had an up-and-down career at the University of Maryland, including a junior season that was interrupted by injuries. The Twins took a chance on his tools, particularly his feel to hit, in the ninth round of the 2015 Draft. He's been playing above his tools and exceeding expectations since and while he struggled in his first taste of Triple-A in 2018, he was added to the 40-man roster this past offseason.

Wade's best skill is his approach at the plate, with a very strong walk rate and plate discipline that he's carried with him all the way up the ladder. Even after the bump he hit in Rochester in 2018, he has walked more than he has struck out heading into the 2019 season. While he did hit a career high 11 home runs last year, Wade has not learned to leverage his left-handed swing to generate more power. An average runner, Wade plays solid defense in the corners, but while he can fill in as a center fielder, he's below average defensively there.

For Wade to profile as anything more than a backup outfielder at the big league level, he's going to have to find a way to tap into his power more. He'd never really struggled with the bat before his promotion last year, but there's hope that adversity will help him take a developmental step in terms of his offensive production.
