Kyle Tucker News
Houston Astros outfielder Kyle Tucker will start and hit sixth Wednesday in Game 5 of the ALCS. Tucker has driven in runs in each of his last three games against the Red Sox and leads the Astros with 12 runs batted in through eight postseason games. Tucker has parlayed a fantastic second half in the regular season into a productive playoffs, slashing .281/.303/.625 with two doubles and three home runs. The Red Sox will send left-handed starter Chris Sale to the mound and the Tucker, surprisingly, posted a .910 OPS against lefties in the regular season.
Houston Astros outfielder Kyle Tucker went 1-for-5 with two runs scored in the Astros 10-1 victory over the White Sox in Game 4 of the ALDS. The Astros advance and Tucker was fantastic in this series. The 24-year-old was one of the hottest hitters in baseball the final two months of the regular season and backed that up by slugging .706 in the series with three extra-base hits, five runs scored and seven runs batted in. Tucker will be an attractive DFS option in the ALCS against the Red Sox.
Houston Astros outfielder Kyle Tucker went 2-for-4 with a home run and three runs batted in as the Astros pounded the White Sox 9-4 in Game 2 of the ALDS. Tucker singled home a run in the second inning and burst the game open in the Astros five-run seventh inning with a two-run opposite field home run. Tucker played white-hot offensive baseball in the second half and was able to explode in this dominant performance. Tucker will be looking for more when the team travels to Chicago for Game 3 Sunday night.
Last season, Kyle Tucker made the jump from a highly intriguing prospect to more of a fixture in the Houston lineup. Now he has an ADP of 31st overall and will hit in a top-three spot in the Astros lineup. Tucker just turned 24 years old, yet he is expected to be a key guy in the Houston batting order. His 42 RBI were among the American League leaders. He stole eight bases, although his Sprint Speed of 27.6 did not leap out at us. The Exit Velocity of 91.1 pointed to more power promise, even if the xWOBA of .318 or the xSLG of .459 was not thrilling. He also hit just .217 against lefties last year. But when you consider Tucker's age, the faith in the organization is placing in him, and his minor league numbers, you cannot get heavily sidetracked by some of the Statcast totals from an abbreviated 2020 season. Tucker had 34 homers and 30 steals at Triple-A in 2019 and has been regarded as a prime MLB prospect. The Astros obviously believe he is ready to grow into better totals and the tools are there. You may have to take a small leap of faith to draft Tucker at his ADP, but the power and speed potential is very enticing and could pay off nicely in a true breakout year. While his BA and OBP could leave a bit to be desired, there is the potential for a real nice payoff in power, run production, and speed.
