Astros' Kyle Tucker: Optioned to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tucker was optioned to Triple-A Round Rock on Tuesday, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic reports.

Tucker was expected to have at least an outside shot at a spot on the Opening Day roster, but he'll wind up being sent away more than two weeks before the start of the season. The young outfielder doesn't have a lot left to prove in the minors, having hit .332/.400/.590 in 100 Triple-A games last season, so it may not be long before he's back in the big leagues.

Astros' Kyle Tucker: No power show this spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tucker went 0-for-2 on Sunday against the Nationals and is hitting .333 (5-for-15) with one extra base hit, three RBI and five strikeouts over five spring games.

Tucker has been unable to repeat the power show he put on during spring training last year when he launched five home runs and drove in 21 runs, but he's still a well regarded prospect whose .990 OPS at Triple-A Fresno in 2018 indicates he's ready for his next challenge. A brief encounter with major-league pitching did not go well last season (72 plate appearances, .430 OPS), so that may still sit in the mind of manager A.J. Hinch. The Astros could keep him down in the minors to get another year of service time out of him while Tony Kemp and Jake Marisnick handle the fourth and fifth outfielder jobs for the first two months of the season.

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.
