Astros' Preston Tucker: Will get first spring at-bats

Tucker (shoulder) is slated for his first at-bats of the spring in minor league games this week, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The delay caused by his shoulder puts Tucker in line to begin the season in the minors, though with Houston's well-stocked outfield, even a healthy Tucker would have started at Triple-A Fresno.
