Thanks in part to lowering his strikeout rate from 20.2 percent in 2020 to 16 percent in 2021, Tucker is currently holding down a career-best .273 batting average.

The Astros reinstated Tucker (illness) from the COVID-19-related injured list Wednesday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Though Tucker never tested positive for the coronavirus, the Astros were able to place him on the COVID-19 IL in accordance with health and safety protocols while battled a stomach virus that caused him to lose 10 pounds. He's apparently been able to regain some strength after resuming workouts over the weekend, and he'll likely slot back into a starting role in the outfield in Wednesday's series finale in Baltimore. Tucker's return will be most costly to Chas McCormick, who had started the last eight games in right field.
Manager Dusty Baker said Monday that Tucker (illness) is expected to return "mid to late this week," Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

While it's not yet clear when Tucker could be activated, he still appears to be relatively close to returning.

Tucker (illness) is working out for the second straight day Saturday at Minute Maid park, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
According to manager Dusty Baker, the 24-year-old has a chance of returning during the Astros' early-week series at Baltimore. Tucker was on an absolute tear before landing on the COVID-19 injured list Wednesday, hitting .356 with three homers and 15 RBI over his last 17 games.

Tucker sat out Tuesday due to the ailment and remained unavailable Wednesday, and he's now in MLB's health and safety protocols. The 24-year-old hasn't necessarily tested positive for the virus, and it's unclear when he's expected to rejoin the active roster. Abraham Toro was recalled from Triple-A Sugar Land in a corresponding move.
Tucker (illness) isn't available for Wednesday's game against the Rangers, Alyson Footer of MLB.com reports.
Tucker was held out of Tuesday's lineup since he was feeling under the weather, and he's not feeling well enough to return Wednesday.

Chas McCormick will start in right field and bat seventh Wednesday.

Tucker's absence from the lineup initially seemed strange given that Houston had a day off Monday and is facing right-hander Kyle Gibson on Tuesday. Now it's known that the outfielder isn't starting because he's feeling sick, though Baker didn't comment on whether he could be an option to pinch hit. It's also unclear whether Tucker will be able to play in Wednesday's series finale.
