Angels' Tyler Wade: Limited to utility role

Wade is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Mariners, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports. Wade reached base in all three of his plate appearances and scored a run in Saturday's 5-3 loss, but he appears to be limited to a part-time role even with Anthony Rendon (wrist) having underwent season-ending surgery. With Matt Duffy serving as Rendon's primary replacement at third base, Andrew Velazquez and Luis Rengifo appear to have settled in as the Angels' primary options in the middle infield, leaving Wade without a path to steady playing time. Wade will be on the bench Sunday for the fourth time in six contests.

Angels' Tyler Wade: Notches steal in win

Wade went 2-for-4 with a stolen base in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Mariners. Wade notched a steal in the ninth inning.

Angels' Tyler Wade: Not starting Friday

Wade will sit Friday against Seattle, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports. Wade may be needed more frequently for the rest of the season with Anthony Rendon done for the year due to wrist surgery, but he won't start here against lefty Robbie Ray. Luis Rengifo and Andrew Velazquez will handle the middle infield spots with Jack Mayfield at third base.

Angels' Tyler Wade: Nabs sixth steal

Wade went 0-for-4 with a run, an RBI and a stolen base in Sunday's loss to Philadelphia. Despite going hitless in four at-bats, Wade was fairly productive. He knocked in a run on a fielder's choice groundout in the fourth inning, reached on another fielder's choice in the ninth and subsequently stole second base before coming around to score. The theft was Wade's sixth of the campaign, but he was caught trying to steal for the fourth time this season earlier in Sunday's contest. Wade's very limited fantasy value is tied almost entirely to steals, as he's slashing .208/.263/.274 with only one homer on the season and doesn't have an everyday spot in the lineup.

Ex-Yankees Andrew Velazquez, Tyler Wade return playing key roles for Angels

Mike Trout and Shohei Ohtani make the Angels an attraction any time they are on the road, but the club’s visit to The Bronx this week will also serve as a reunion of sorts.  Former Yankees infielders Andrew Velazquez and Tyler Wade will return to their old stomping grounds Tuesday as part of one of the best teams in the American League, even with the Angels on a five-game losing streak.  “They’re playing really well,” manager Aaron Boone said. “Obviously seeing ‘Squid’ [Velazquez] playing really well — I know he’s really played really well defensively for them at shortstop, not surprisingly.

Angels' Tyler Wade: On bench versus lefty

Wade is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Yankees, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports. With southpaw Jordan Montgomery on the hill, the lefty-hitting Wade will take a seat while the righty-hitting Matt Duffy picks up the start at third base. Andrew Velazquez and Luis Rengifo appear to have solidified themselves as the Angels' starters at the two middle-infield spots against both left- and right-handed pitching, so Wade may have to settle for platoon work at the hot corner with Duffy until Anthony Rendon (wrist) comes off the injured list.

Angels' Tyler Wade: Steals base Sunday

Wade went 0-for-2 with two walks, a stolen base and two runs scored in Sunday's 11-10 loss to the Blue Jays. Wade is now 5-for-8 in stolen base attempts this season after swiping a bag in the fourth inning before scoring on a Taylor Ward homer. The 27-year-old Wade has added a .229/.288/.302 slash line with one home run, seven RBI, 14 runs scored and four doubles through 109 plate appearances. He'll likely absorb some of the playing time at third base, primarily against right-handed pitchers, while Anthony Rendon (wrist) is on the injured list.

Several months passed before the Yankees decided who would take his spot on the bench, and it turned out be one of the non-roster invitees to spring training: former Astros utilityman Marwin Gonzalez.
