Kyle Tucker News
Houston Astros new general manager Dana Brown said the team has begun contract extension talks with outfielder Kyle Tucker and his representatives. The Astros also have a potential arbitration hearing with Tucker this month, but an extension would likely wipe out his arbitration-eligible years. The 26-year-old left-handed slugger made the All-Star team for the first time in 2022, hitting .257/.330/.478 with an .808 OPS, career-high-tying 30 home runs, career-high 107 RBI, 71 runs scored and career-high 25 stolen bases in 609 plate appearances over 150 games played. He's had exactly 30 homers in each of the last two seasons while also picking up 39 stolen bases, making him one of the better young outfielders in the game. RotoBaller currently has Tucker ranked as the No. 6 overall fantasy player.
Houston Astros outfielder Kyle Tucker was a force in Friday's World Series Game 1 against the Philadelphia Phillies, going 3-for-5 with a pair of homers and four RBI, but his team still lost 6-5 in 10 innings. The young star has been solid over eight games in the playoffs, slashing .273/.351/.545 with three bombs and a stolen base. It follows a 2022 campaign in which Tucker hit .257 with 30 HRs, 107 RBI, 71 runs and 25 stolen bases. There are no signs that he'll slow down, and he should continue to be one of the best hitters in the Astros lineup.
Houston Astros outfielder Kyle Tucker went 2-for-7 in the 18-inning, 1-0 win over the Seattle Mariners in game three of the American League Division Series that sent them to the next round. He walked once and continues to be aggressive on the basepaths, stealing third base in the second inning after he swiped 25 bags during the regular season. Across three playoff games, Tucker's slashing .267/.313/.467 with a home run. The five-tool player had a sensational year in 2022, batting .257 with 30 bombs, 71 runs, and 107 RBI across 150 games. Assume Tucker will continue to contribute as he did in the regular season.
Tucker made it back-to-back 30 homer seasons in 2022 and although his batting average dropped from .294 in 2021 to .257 in 2022, he also stole 25 bases leaving him as the only member of the 30/20 last year. Tucker hit .228/.279/.456 against left-handed pitching (.275/.359/.491 against right-handed pitching) so with the restrictions on defensive shifts in 2023, it's fair to believe we will see improvements in his batting average moving forward and hitting north of .260 is more than reasonable. Tucker spent most of the season in the middle of the Astros lineup with 82 games coming from the number five spot in the order and that helped him to tally 71 runs and 107 RBI. The addition of Jose Abreu to the lineup should only help Tucker put up the counting stats and he is on the verge of being a true five-category contributor in fantasy. With an ADP inside the first ten picks, it's safe to assume you'll need to use a mid-first-round pick to draft Tucker and he's certainly capable of providing first round value.
