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.

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

Tucker was sent back down to Triple-A Fresno on Wednesday, Jake Kaplan of MLB.com reports.

Tucker had only recorded 10 at-bats during Houston's past eight games, so he will return to the minor leagues in order to receive everyday playing time. After being called up in early July, he hit .156/.240/.222 with three RBI and understandably couldn't get into a groove with irregular playing time. Look for him to rejoin the Astros when rosters expand in September, if not before then. In a corresponding move, Jake Marisnick was recalled from Fresno.

Astros' Kyle Tucker: Fills in after Springer injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tucker entered Tuesday's game after George Springer was removed due to a shoulder injury. He went 1-for-3 with a walk and a run scored in a 5-2 win over the Mariners.

Starting left fielder Tony Kemp slid over to center field to take Springer's spot, while Tucker came in to play left field. He's seen his playing time dry up significantly since his callup, having started twice in the last 10 days, but could get a start in Wednesday's series finale against the Mariners. Over 50 plate appearances, Tucker is hitting .156 with a .462 OPS.

Astros' Kyle Tucker: Drops out of lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tucker is out of the lineup Sunday against the Rangers.

Tucker is on the bench for the fourth time in six games after Saturday's 0-for-3 showing dropped his batting average to .143 through his first 46 plate appearances in the big leagues. A .188 BABIP has certainly hindered Tucker, but the 21-year-old may need to pick up the pace offensively in his subsequent opportunities to avoid a demotion to Triple-A Fresno.
