2012 Curveball 'n' Command specialist Wade was the surprise of the Dodgers' 2008 pen, but after spending two seasons coping with shoulder problems and their surgical aftermath, he was non-tendered. The Rays gave him a minor-league deal, but when they didn't come calling despite some stellar pitching at Triple-A, Wade played the opt-out card to come to New York. He joined a bullpen depleted by Soriano's injury and pitched excellently, performing especially well with runners on base. Right-handed hitters have hit just .206 against Wade, and lefties haven't had it easy either (.236/.274/.368). Wade is the anti-Soriano, cheap and effective, and is an example of what a team can achieve at low cost when it trusts its GM to do his job.
2011 A victim of the Curse of Scott Proctor—common among those who pitched their way into Joe Torre's good graces—Cory Wade underwent surgery last March to repair fraying of his rotator cuff and labrum. He pitched well at Albuquerque from August onward, but the Dodgers left him off the 40-man roster and he signed a minor-league deal with the Rays.
2010 The staff's biggest surprise as a rookie in 2008, Wade was a prime candidate to be felled by the Curse of Scott Proctor, a common affliction among pitchers who work their way into Joe Torre's good graces. Battling shoulder soreness in spring training, Wade wound up on the DL with bursitis once Torre called his number four times during the team's first six games. Returning nearly three weeks later, he threw 4 1/3 innings in the team's next five games, and from there things got ugly: a 6.86 ERA and five blown leads over his next 19 appearances. After spending the second half on the DL and in Albuquerque, he'll compete for a bullpen spot while providing another object lesson in reliever fungibility.
2009 The surprise of the Dodgers’ bullpen last year was this 10th-round 2004 pick out of Kentucky Wesleyan who had plodded through the system until Inland Empire pitching coach Charlie Hough (the famous knuckleballer with less-famous perfect mechanics) helped him refine his curveball. Wade had less than 50 innings above A-ball under his belt when recalled in late April, but he became the rare rookie reliever to gain Torre’s confidence. He’s a command/control guy who navigates well with men on base; he led the league in double-play percentage despite being otherwise decidedly fly ball-oriented, and led the Dodgers in both relief innings and WRXL. His low BABIP suggests that regression is in order, but as a late bloomer, he may still have advances in store.
2008 A bit of a sleeper in the system, late-blooming Cory Wade thrived in a bullpen role in 2007 thanks to his 91- to 93-mph fastball and pinpoint control. He has an outside shot to reach Dodger Stadium this year.

2008-10-02 11:00:00Thursday Playoff GamesJay,

Don't hit too hard, it's not like you took some kind of anti-stand or something and the whole world thought Cory Wade would have some impact -- everybody hid him as some kind of lineout-esque kinda dude. (Kevin Goldstein)
2008-10-02 11:00:00Thursday Playoff GamesI feel like we missed on Cory Wade this year. He was a lineout in BP08 at the back fo the chapter, and while we allowed for the possibility that he might see Dodger Stadium this year, his 2007 numbers and obviously this performance this year certainly merited full entry status.

I beat myself up about that one a little. (Jay Jaffe)
