by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Pirates' Cole Tucker: Retreats to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Pirates' Cole Tucker: On bench Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Pirates' Cole Tucker: Day off Tuesday

Pirates' Cole Tucker: Notches first steal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tucker went 1-for-4 with a stolen base in Friday's 6-5 loss to the Cubs.

The 25-year-old showed some speed Friday, leading off the game with an infield single and adding his first stolen base of the year. Tucker has struggled mightily at the plate since he was recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis, going 3-for-19 in six games. He's started in five straight games, earning nods at second base, shortstop and right field in that stretch.

Pirates' Cole Tucker: Productive night at plate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tucker went 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI in Wednesday's 6-3 loss to the White Sox.

He drove a 94-mph fastball off the left-field wall while batting left-handed for his two-bagger after singling in the team's first run to right field while hitting from the right side. Tucker has failed in his prior big league chances and the remainder of the 2021 season may be his last opportunity to prove himself in a Pirates uniform. The 25-year-old started for just the seventh time this year and batted leadoff for the first time.

Pirates' Cole Tucker: Recalled from minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Pirates recalled Tucker from Triple-A Indianapolis on Saturday, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.

Tucker has had an unremarkable month in Indianapolis, hitting .202 with seven extra-base hits and six RBI in 84 plate appearances since the beginning of August. Manager Derek Shelton said the 24-year-old will likely start in the outfield a couple days a week, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports. Gregory Polanco was designated for assignment.

Pirates' Cole Tucker: Returns to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tucker (thumb) is starting Wednesday's game at Triple-A Indianapolis, Kevin Gorman of TribLive.com reports.

Tucker hurt his thumb while attempting to make a diving catch in the outfield July 21, and he'll return to action after missing a week. The 25-year-old has hit .221 with two home runs, 18 runs, 10 RBI and five stolen bases in 34 games at Triple-A Indianapolis this year.

Pirates' Cole Tucker: Suffers right thumb injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tucker exited Wednesday's game at Triple-A Indianapolis with a right thumb injury, Alex Stumpf of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

Tucker attempted to make a diving catch in the outfield Wednesday, but he was shaken up on the play and removed from the contest. It's not yet clear whether the issue will force him to miss additional time.

Pirates' Cole Tucker: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tucker was optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis on Friday.

Tucker joined the major-league roster July 6, and he went 1-for-6 with a strikeout across five appearances. He'll now return to the minors after Phillip Evans (concussion) was reinstated from the injured list Friday.

Pirates' Cole Tucker: Recalled from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Pirates recalled Tucker from Triple-A Indianapolis on Tuesday, Kevin Gorman of TribLive.com reports.

The infielder went 2-for-15 in his first big-league stint of 2021. He hasn't hit too much better in Indianapolis, where he's posted a .214 average with two homers and 10 RBI in 112 at-bats this season. Tucker and fellow call-up Rodolfo Castro will fill the roster spots of Gregory Polanco (hip) and Phillip Evans (concussion).

Pirates' Cole Tucker: Returns to action at Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tucker (illness) returned to action over the weekend at Triple-A Indianapolis and made three consecutive starts at shortstop, going 1-for-11 with two walks, a stolen base and a run scored across those contests.

Tucker was withheld from the lineup for about a week and a half while he recovered from bronchitis. He appears to have since returned to full strength and should fill an everyday role at Triple-A until the Pirates have another need for an infielder at the big-league level.

Pirates' Cole Tucker: Resumes on-field work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tucker has been dealing with an illness recently but resumed on-field work Tuesday, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Tucker was sent to Triple-A Indianapolis on June 6, but he hasn't appeared in a game since June 13 due to a bronchitis-type issue. However, he wasn't placed on the minor-league injured list and is expected to return to game action in the near future.

Pirates' Cole Tucker: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Pirates optioned Tucker to Triple-A Indianapolis on Sunday, Jake Crouse of MLB.com reports.

Tucker will cede his spot on the 26-man active roster to infielder Colin Moran (groin), who was reinstated from the 10-day injured list ahead of Sunday's series finale against the Marlins. During his two-week stint with the big club, Tucker made only three starts and appeared in eight games in total, going 2-for-15 at the dish.

Pirates' Cole Tucker: Set for season debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tucker was called up by the Pirates on Friday, Stephen J. Nesbitt of The Athletic reports.

Tucker was at least a moderately interesting prospect but has so far failed to accomplish much of anything at the big-league level. In 93 games over parts of the last two seasons, he's hit just .215/.260/.324. A .214/.302/.339 line in 14 games for Triple-A Indianapolis hardly suggests he's turned a corner, but the rebuilding Pirates have little reason not to let him work on his game at the big-league level.

Pirates' Cole Tucker: In Florida for 'skill development'
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tucker is in Florida for "skill development," according to manager Derek Shelton, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

He was surprisingly left off the initial roster for the Pirates' alternate training site, and it sounds like the Pirates felt Tucker would benefit more from the environment at extended spring training in the short term. Per Shelton, Tucker is expected to eventually head to the alternate site.

Pirates' Cole Tucker: Left off alt. site roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tucker was not included on the Pirates' alternate site roster, Kevin Gorman of TribLive.com reports.

Tucker is reportedly healthy, so it is unclear why he was not included on the roster for the alternate site, which is theoretically the pool of players the Pirates will be pulling from if they need reinforcements in April. Ji-Hwan Bae, Rodolfo Castro, Will Craig, Oneil Cruz, Wilmer Difo, Todd Frazier and Connor Kaiser were the infielders who made the roster.

Pirates' Cole Tucker: Sent down by Pirates
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tucker was optioned to minor-league camp Wednesday.

Tucker dealt with a bruised thumb earlier this spring but still appeared in eight Grapefruit League games. The 24-year-old hit .174 with two extra-base hits, one RBI, one run, one walk and six strikeouts this spring, and he'll likely begin the regular season with Triple-A Indianapolis.

Pirates' Cole Tucker: Returns to action Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tucker (thumb) started at shortstop Friday against Toronto and went 1-for-2 with a double.

The game action was Tucker's first since he suffered a thumb injury March 1. He registered a pair of 100-plus mph exit velocities Friday, an area in which he's looking to improve. In 2020, his exit velocity (83.1 mph) and barrels performance (1.7 percent) were among the worst in baseball. Tucker is likely behind Kevin Newman (hamstring) and Erik Gonzalez in the competition for the starting shortstop job, but at least he's seeing time at his natural position instead of learning on the fly in the outfield, like he did last summer.
