SF Giants’ lineup vs. Dodgers sheds light on big questions ahead of trade deadline

LOS ANGELES — Since arriving in off-season trade from the Minnesota Twins, Lamonte Wade Jr. has been everything the Giants could have hoped for and more.

Wade had two home runs in .684 OPS and 113 plate appearances with Minnesota, but the versatile left-handed hitter has been greatly improved in San Francisco where he posted .867 OPS with nine home runs in 148 plate appearances is.

However, he has done it all without recording a single hit against a left-handed pitcher.

At 30 career plates against the Southpaws, Wade is 0-for-25 hitting two walks, three pitches and eight strikeouts.

He’s been a surprisingly valuable platoon bat for Gabe Kapler’s Giants this season, but with the club’s 1.0-game lead in the National League West on Wednesday, Wade has been given a new challenge. For the second time in as many days, he is in the starting lineup against a left-handed pitcher as he prepares to bat seventh and play left-field against Dodgers’ southpaw Julio Urias.
