Aaron Boone on optioning versatile INF/OF Tyler Wade today: "Tough morning ... He's done a lot of the things we've asked. He came in here and had another good spring. We feel more and more comfortable about his ability to play multiple positions well. You also have to look at it as these things remain fluid and can be temporary at times, and the bottom line is he's put himself in a good position to be here. We feel like he will impact our club at some point this season ... One of the things with Tyler, when we're whole, he actually makes a little more sense because of the versatility he now really possesses. This could be a situation where Tyler gets his chance, even as we get healthier. That's possible."
