Yankees bring back Murrieta INF/OF, Tyler Wade, in deal with Angels

NEW YORK — The New York Yankees acquired utility player Tyler Wade Thursday, July 14, from the Los Angeles Angels for a player to be named later or cash.

Wade was assigned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, where he will play alongside another familiar name from the area, former 2008 Chaparral graduate, Rob Brantly.

The 27-year-old hit .218 with 22 runs, five doubles, a homer and eight RBIs in 67 games with the Angels this season before being designated for assignment on July 3. He then cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Salt Lake on July 8.

Wade, who graduated from Murrieta Valley High School in 2013, and drafted that same year, was acquired by the Angels from the Yankees for a player to be named later or cash on Nov. 22. Over parts of six major league seasons (2017-22), he has a .214 batting average with 24 doubles, two triples, seven homers and 41 RBIs in 331 games bouncing around the infield and outfield.

Wade was originally selected by the Yankees in the fourth round and played his first five big league seasons in New York.
