Tucker is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Reds.

Tucker has seen his playing time tick up of late while serving in a super-utility role for the Pirates. He started at three different positions (shortstop, left field and right field) while cracking the lineup in each of the Pirates' last five games, going 8-for-19 with a triple, double, two walks, a stolen base, four runs and three RBI. Though he'll be on the bench for the series finale, expect Tucker to at least pick up semi-regular playing time while he's wielding a hot bat.
