Player Outlook
A string of knee issues derailed LaMonte Wade in 2022 and prevented him from building on his breakout showing with the Giants from 2021, but he managed to stay mostly healthy in 2023 and returned to form as a reliable leadoff presence for San Francisco. He registered a .373 on-base percentage, which ranked 13th-best among all qualified major-league hitters, and he struck out only 95 times in 519 plate appearances while drawing 76 walks. Wade doesn't have a ton of raw power -- he finished in just the 32nd percentile last year in average exit velocity -- but the 30-year-old first baseman and corner outfielder should continue to be a fairly appealing option in OBP leagues and might be worthy of late-round or waiver-wire consideration in standard formats for his potential to rack up runs scored. It's worth nothing, however, that the offseason arrival of Jung Hoo Lee could seriously curtail Wade's tablesetting opportunities.

  • Giants' LaMonte Wade: Idle versus LHP

    Wade isn't in San Francisco's lineup Saturday against the Rockies, Shayna Rubin of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. The left-handed Wade will take a seat Saturday as the Giants prepare to face fellow southpaw Kyle Freeland. While Wade sits, Wilmer Flores will start at first base and bat fifth.

  • Giants' LaMonte Wade: Out of lineup again Saturday

    Wade isn't starting Saturday's game against the Twins, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports. Wade recently battled a tight hamstring and didn't play Thursday, though he was back in San Francisco's lineup Friday. There's no word that he aggravated the issue, but it's a bit surprising to see him not starting against a right-hander (Simeon Woods Richardson). Wilmer Flores is playing first base and batting seventh for the Giants on Saturday.

  • Giants' LaMonte Wade: Back in lineup

    Wade (hamstring) is batting second and playing first base Friday against Minnesota, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Wade sat out Thursday's contest with hamstring soreness, but he's feeling well enough to play Friday. The 30-year-old is 5-for-20 with a solo home run and a double in July.

  • Giants' LaMonte Wade: Nursing tight hamstring

    Manager Bob Melvin said Thursday that Wade is dealing with tightness in his hamstring, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Wade was left out of the Giants' starting lineup for Thursday's game, and it's now been revealed that his absence is due to problems with his hamstring. Melvin noted that the 30-year-old first baseman will still likely be available for San Francisco's upcoming series versus Minnesota, but the team will take a day-to-day approach with him until the All-Star break.

  • Giants' LaMonte Wade: Getting Thursday off

    Wade is out of the lineup Thursday against the Blue Jays, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. After going 2-for-4 with a walk and a run scored during Wednesday's loss, Wade will give way Thursday to Wilmer Flores, who will start at first base and bat seventh.

  • Giants' LaMonte Wade: Sitting vs. southpaw Saturday

    Wade is not in the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Guardians. Wade went 0-for-3 with one run, one walk and two strikeouts in Friday's 4-2 win over Cleveland.

  • Giants' LaMonte Wade: On bench vs. lefty

    Wade is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against Atlanta, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports. Wade has gone 3-for-13 with a double and a solo homer in three games since returning from the injured list, but he will take a seat for Wednesday's contest as southpaw Chris Sale starts for Atlanta. David Villar will man first base and bat sixth for the Giants.

  • Giants' LaMonte Wade: Homers in Tuesday's win

    Wade went 1-for-4 with a solo home run and a walk in Tuesday's 5-3 win over Atlanta. Wade has gone 3-for-13 (.231) with two walks over three games since he returned from missing a month with a hamstring injury. The 30-year-old had been hitting atop the order prior to the injury, but the Giants have had him in the No. 2 spot due to Jorge Soler serving at leadoff recently. Wade has just three homers over 55 games this year, but he's maintained a .324/.459/.437 slash line with 18 RBI, 24 runs scored and a stolen base. His 19.8 percent walk rate has helped to keep his ratios strong even if he's lacking in counting stats.

  • Giants' LaMonte Wade: Retreating to bench vs. lefty

    Wade is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Dodgers. The platoon-happy Giants will hold out Wade and fellow lefty-hitting regulars Michael Conforto and Brett Wisely while the Dodgers send a southpaw (James Paxton) to the hill. David Villar will check in at first base in place of Wade, who went 2-for-9 with a double, a walk and a run scored in the first two games of the series following his return from a month-long stay on the injured list due to a hamstring strain.

  • Giants' LaMonte Wade: Batting second in return

    Wade (hamstring) is playing first base and batting second Friday against the Dodgers, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Wade will make his return from a Grade 2 hamstring strain he sustained in late May. The first baseman played three rehab games and went 1-for-7 with three runs scored, four walks and two strikeouts.

  • Giants' LaMonte Wade: Poised to come off IL Friday

    Wade (hamstring) is expected to be activated from the 10-day injured list Friday, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports. Wade has been sidelined for the past month with a Grade 2 left hamstring strain but has been cleared to return after playing three rehab games with Triple-A Sacramento, going 1-for-7 with a 2:4 K:BB. The 30-year-old has slashed a robust .333/.470/.426 for the Giants this season and will go back to receiving regular starts at first base against right-handed pitching.

  • Giants' LaMonte Wade: Starting rehab assignment

    Wade (hamstring) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Sacramento on Sunday, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports. Wade has been on the injured list since the end of May due to a Grade 2 left hamstring strain. The Giants haven't indicated how long Wade will remain on assignment at Triple-A, but considering he has been sidelined for nearly a month, it's likely he'll need to play a handful of games with Sacramento before returning from the IL.

  • Giants' LaMonte Wade: Unlikely to return this week

    Giants manager Bob Melvin said Sunday that it's likely a "stretch" for Wade (hamstring) to return from the 10-day injured list before Thursday's matchup with the Cardinals at Rickwood Field in Birmingham, Ala., MLB.com reports. Wade was diagnosed with a Grade 2 left hamstring strain after suffering the injury while sliding into second base in a May 27 win over the Phillies. Though a Grade 2 strain often entails a recovery timeline of more than a month, Wade said last week that his goal was to make it back for MLB's June 20 Negro Leagues tribute game as the Giants' designated hitter. Wade took steps forward this past week by taking batting practice on the field and increasing the intensity of his running progression, but the 30-year-old looks like he'll still at least one week away from being a realistic option to return from the IL. Wilmer Flores should continue to serve as the Giants' primary first baseman while Wade remains out.

  • Giants' LaMonte Wade: Aiming for return next Thursday

    Wade (hamstring) said Wednesday that he's pushing hard for a return from the 10-day injured list for the Giants' matchup with the Cardinals on June 20 at Rickwood Field in Birmingham, Ala., Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports. When he was placed on the IL on May 28 with a Grade 2 left hamstring strain, Wade was projected to miss four weeks, but the veteran first baseman took batting practice Tuesday and fielded grounders and started some light running Wednesday as he aims to beat his estimated return timeline by one week. Wade acknowledged that if he's able to return for MLB's June 20 Negro Leagues tribute game, he would likely be relegated to designated-hitter duties. The Giants will presumably continue to monitor Wade's progress as he ramps up over the next week before determining if a June 20 return is feasible. The 30-year-old hadn't been a premium source of counting stats prior to being deactivated due to the injury, but he was hitting an impressive .333 while getting on base at a .470 clip through his first 52 games of the season.

  • Giants' LaMonte Wade: Slated for BP on Tuesday

    Wade (hamstring) will take batting practice Tuesday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Wade resumed baseball activities over the weekend and is almost ready to do some hitting on the field. He's been on the shelf since late May with a Grade 2 left hamstring strain. While Wade looks to be trending in a positive direction, the real test for him will be when he does some running, and it's not clear when he'll be cleared for that.

  • Giants' LaMonte Wade: Hitting and throwing

    Wade (hamstring) has begun hitting and throwing programs at the Giants' complex in Arizona, Shayna Rubin of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Wade still has plenty of boxes to check off before he can start playing in rehab games, but resuming baseball activities is a step in the right direction. The 30-year-old was diagnosed with a Grade 2 hamstring strain in late May and still projects to be sidelined until at least the end of June.

  • Giants' LaMonte Wade: Diagnosed with Grade 2 strain

    Wade was diagnosed with a Grade 2 left hamstring strain Tuesday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. The Giants placed Wade on the injured list earlier Tuesday, but the team expects him to be sidelined for roughly a month now that the severity of his strain has been revealed. In the meantime, Wilmer Flores and Trenton Brooks will likely split time at first base, though neither player is likely to replace Wade's .333/.470/.426 slash line.

  • Giants' LaMonte Wade: Lands on injured list

    Wade (hamstring) was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday. The 30-year-old returned to the lineup Monday against the Phillies after he suffered the hamstring injury over the weekend, but he aggravated the issue and will miss at least the next week and a half. Wade has been one of the more surprisingly productive players in MLB through the first two months of the season with a .333/.470/.426 slash line through 52 games.

  • Giants' LaMonte Wade: Diagnosed with hamstring injury

    Wade left Monday's game against the Phillies due to a left hamstring strain, Shayna Rubin of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Wade appeared to be grabbing his left knee before exiting Monday's game, but after further evaluation, it's been determined that he's dealing with a hamstring issue. The team has yet to comment further on whether a trip to the 10-day injured list will be required, but it seems likely given the nature of the injury, along with the fact that Wade will undergo an MRI on Tuesday, according to Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic. Wilmer Flores would be in line for more chances at first base if Wade misses additional time.

  • Giants' LaMonte Wade: Exits game with knee injury

    Wade was lifted from Monday's game against the Phillies with an apparent left knee injury, Shayna Rubin of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Wade doubled off the wall in the bottom of the fifth inning but came up lame and had to be removed for a pinch-runner. He had missed the previous two games with a hamstring issue, but it would appear this is unrelated. The Giants should have more on Wade soon.
