Astros move Preston Tucker to third in batting order Tuesday
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Astros rookie outfielder Preston Tucker hit higher than fifth in the lineup for the first time in his career Tuesday at Baltimore. Tucker hit third against right-hander Chris Tillman.

Tucker has multiple hits in each of his last two games and has hit safely in eight of his last 10 games. He has a .419/.455/.742/1.196 slash line in that span.

Since his promotion, Tucker is batting .286 with two home runs, three doubles and six RBI in 13 games against right-handed pitchers.

OF Preston Tucker's pinch-hit HR helps Astros rally
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Outfielder Preston Tucker delivered once again in the clutch for the Astros, and this time, his pinch-hit homer paid off in Houston's 10-8 triumph over the Tigers on Sunday. 

For the second time in this series, Tucker tied the game with a longball. In the sixth inning Sunday, Tucker connected for a three-run homer to draw Houston even, and this time, unlike Thursday, when Tucker hit a pinch-hit homer in the ninth, the Astros were able to pull out the victory. 

Tucker has two homers since being recalled from Triple-A earlier in this month. 

"I don't necessarily feel comfortable pinch hitting," Tucker said. "Once I step into the box, I feel the same, but just the process of it is something I'm not really used to. That's pretty cool that I've been able to help us win."

Astros could be on the lookout for pitching this summer
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

The Astros could be in the market for starting pitching this summer, as they continue their surprising run in 2015. The Astros do have the third-best ERA in the American League, but they could do well in bringing in another arm to shore up the rotation as they try to make a postseason run. 

CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman notes that rookie outfielder Preston Tucker could be a possible trade chip should the Astros wish to go that route. Tucker has hit well in his first stint as a Major Leaguer, but he may have trouble getting regular playing time with the state of the Astros' current outfield.

Astros OF Preston Tucker blasts off to force overtime in Detroit
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Astros rookie Preston Tucker not only tied the game Thursday in Detroit with a solo home run in the ninth, but he also did something no Houston player had done in three years.

The blast marked the first time an Astro hit his first career home run as a pinch-hitter since Brandon Barnes did it in August 2012.

Tucker is off to a flying start in the majors with a slash line .310/.412/.552.

Preston Tucker goes 3 for 4 in Astros' win
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Astros designated hitter Preston Tucker went 3 for 4 in Thursday's win over Toronto. 

Tucker hit his first two doubles of the year, scored once and drove in his third run of the season. His average now stands at .286.

"He’s proven to put up some good at-bats against lefties and righties," manager A.J. Hinch said, per the Houston Chronicle. "We’re going to have to try to get creative to divvy up some playing time. Some guys are due some days off and we’ll most likely go to Tuck. He’s earning his keep every day."
