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.
Tucker went 2-for-3 with a double, three runs scored and a walk in Sunday's 6-5 loss to Miami. Tucker scored a run in the second, seventh and ninth innings and added a double in the fourth. The 25-year-old enjoyed a solid weekend series against Miami, going 6-for-11 (.545) with two extra-base hits in the three-game set. He improved his season slash line to .211/.282/.289 with five extra-base hits through 85 plate appearances.
Tucker isn't starting Wednesday's game against the Reds. Tucker will be out of the lineup for a third consecutive game after he hit .147 with a double, three runs, a stolen base and three walks across his last 10 appearances. Hoy Park will start at the keystone and bat eighth.
Tucker isn't in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Reds. Tucker has gone 1-for-15 with a double, a run and four strikeouts across his last five appearances, and he'll be out of the lineup for a second straight game. Wilmer Difo will start at the keystone and bat eighth.
Tucker will be on the bench Sunday against the Nationals. Tucker has hit just .163/.265/.209 in 13 games since joining the active roster in late August. Wilmer Difo and Kevin Newman will be the middle infielders for Sunday's series finale.
