Kyle Tucker News
Houston Astros outfielder Kyle Tucker will head into Friday's action against the Rangers slugging .808 over his last seven games. Over his last 46 at-bats, Tucker is slashing .326/.354/.696 with four home runs, five doubles and seven runs batted in over his last 13 games. The Rangers will send a left-handed starter to the mound on Friday but DFS lineups should not be afraid of starting Tucker. The 24-year-old is hitting only .235 against lefties but has been fantastic at Minute Maid Park, slashing .327/.380/.636 with 11 home runs and 15 doubles through 44 home games.
Houston Astros outfielder Kyle Tucker went 3-for-5 with one run score and one RBI in the Astros 7-1 win over the White Sox on Friday. Tucker ended the first half of the season white-hot at the plate, slugging .833 over his previous seven games played before his three-hit attack on Friday. Tucker's season got off to a slow start but the 24-year-old is becoming a dependable run-producer in perhaps the most potent offensive lineup in the American League. Tucker will face the White Sox strong starting pitching over the weekend but can be viewed as an asset, especially in category-based fantasy formats.
Houston Astros outfielder Kyle Tucker went 2-for-3, including his 15th home run of the season, in the team's 8-7 win over the Yankees on Sunday. Tucker is off to a fantastic start in the month of July, slashing .304/.360/.739 with six extra-base hits over his last seven games. Tucker got off to a slow start this season but has rebounded nicely and will head into the All-Star break slashing .271/.330/.503 with 15 home runs, 21 doubles, 48 runs scored and 49 runs batted in through 79 games played this season.
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.
