Astros' Kyle Tucker: Likely to open 2019 at Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tucker is expected to begin the 2019 campaign at Triple-A Fresno after the Astros signed outfielder Michael Brantley to a two-year, $32 million contract Monday, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic Houston reports.

Though he amassed 24 home runs and 20 stolen bases in just 100 games at Triple-A last season, Tucker fizzled across his three stints at the big-league level, hitting just .141 and reaching base at a .236 clip over 72 plate appearances. The small sample doesn't put much of a damper on Tucker's long-term outlook, but it may have partially factored into the Astros' decision to bring aboard a more established outfield option in Brantley. While Brantley's addition creates a temporary roadblock for Tucker, it's more likely the veteran is more of a long-term threat to corner outfielder Josh Reddick -- another lefty hitter like Tucker and Brantley -- who struggled mightily in 2018. If Reddick fails to produce against right-handed pitching early on during the upcoming season, the Astros probably won't hesitate to give Tucker another spin in an everyday role, as the 21-year-old seemingly has little left to prove in the minors at this point.

Astros' Kyle Tucker: Won't join team for playoffs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager A.J. Hinch informed Tucker on Sunday that he wouldn't be included on the Astros' American League Division Series roster, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

Tucker went 1-for-4 while manning right field Saturday in the second half of the Astros' doubleheader with Orioles, marking just the second start for the outfielder since he was promoted from Triple-A Fresno on Sept. 16. Though he remains one of the top hitting prospects, Tucker scuffled in his MLB debut, managing only nine hits in 62 at-bats. He never had much of a case for a spot on the postseason roster with Marwin Gonzalez, George Springer and Josh Reddick all assured spots in the outfield and reserves Jake Marisnick (defense), Tony Kemp (plate discipline) and Myles Straw (baserunning) all possessing singular skills that might prove more useful off the bench than Tucker's all-around package.

Astros' Kyle Tucker: On tear at Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tucker went 2-for-4 with a home run, a walk, a stolen base and three RBI in Triple-A Fresno's 7-6 win over Salt Lake on Saturday.

After failing to make much of an impression in his second callup to the big leagues earlier this month, Tucker has been unstoppable since returning to Triple-A on Tuesday. In four games with Fresno, Tucker has gone 12-for-19 with six home runs and three steals, with his walkoff ninth-inning blast Saturday capping a five-run rally and securing a division title for Fresno. He'll likely rejoin the big club when rosters expand in September, but Tucker probably won't be asked to fill a full-time role for the Astros, despite his recent success in the Pacific Coast League.

Astros' Kyle Tucker: Sent back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tucker was optioned to Triple-A Fresno following Monday's game in Seattle, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The move precedes the anticipated activation of Jose Altuve (knee) from the disabled list Tuesday. Tucker, the organization's second-ranked prospect, went 1-for-7 in his second stint with the Astros. He should return when rosters expand Sept. 1.

Astros' Kyle Tucker: Starts in left field Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tucker started in left field and went 0-for-3 with a run scored in Sunday's 4-3 extra-inning loss to the Mariners.

Tucker ignited an eighth-inning rally when he was hit by a pitch and scored Houston's first run. This was his first start since being called up from Triple-A Fresno on Saturday as a replacement for the injured Jake Marisnick (groin). This is highly regarded prospect's second stint with the Astros after he appeared overmatched earlier this summer. If he continues to struggle against major-league pitching, Tucker could be the roster casualty when George Springer (thumb) is ready to be activated from the disabled list, expected to happen by the end of this week.
