    My guess is that he will be the Opening Day shortstop for the Yankees this year. (They want Torres to get more time in the minors. Plus, why start the clock on him this young?)

    Wade is an interesting player. He’s more of an OBA guy than someone who will hit for average. (He walks a lot for a guy who is not a great hitter.) He’s got no pop. But, he can and will steal a base – and he’s very athletic in the field. He’s pretty tough too. It will take a lot to knock him out of a game.

    I would rather give Wade a shot this April than go with Ronald Torreyes or Ruben Tejada.

    Lastly, my guess is that you won’t see Didi Gregorius for a while. They are saying the end of April. It would not shock me if it was closer to June, if then.

      I think the Yanks would rather not start Wade’s “clock”, and also that he has no AAA experience yet, so I think they’ll go with Torreyes, with Tejada or Kozma backing up.

      Also it would take a 40-man roster move to activate Wade.

      Cut Chris Carter. There’s your spot on the forty. 🙂
