Tucker was optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis on Saturday.

Corey Dickerson (shoulder) and Jung Ho Kang (side) returned from the 10-day injured list Saturday, leaving Tucker as the odd man out. The move isn't completely surprising, as Tucker struggled with a slash line of .196/.244/.321 and a 28.3 percent strikeout rate in 38 games. Kevin Newman has been much more productive to begin the year and should see the majority of the work at shortstop going forward.
