Twins outfield prospect LaMonte Wade avoided major injury after a harrowing collision during an Arizona Fall League game on Saturday night. Wade, 23, was diagnosed with a concussion but his “extremities are all functioning,” according to Paul Kuo, a spokesman for the Ballengee Group sports agency. X-rays on Wade’s chest and back were negative, Kuo said in an email, and a full recovery is expected. Wade, playing right field, laid out for an attempted catch of an Austin Riley fly ball in the second inning and crashed head-first into the right hip area of Surprise Saguaros center fielder Oscar Mercado of the St. Louis Cardinals. The game was delayed for several minutes as Wade, 23, lay in the outfield grass.
