Kyle Tucker singles twice on Saturday

Kyle Tucker went 2-for-2 with two singles in Saturday's spring training game versus the Nationals.

Fantasy Impact

The 22-year-old remains one of the top young players in baseball despite hitting just .141 in 28 big league games last year. He doesn't have a clear path to playing time but would become a fantasy factor if he gets everyday at bats this season.

Kyle Tucker to make return to big leagues

Kyle Tucker was called up Saturday afternoon after Jake Marisnick injured his groin Friday night against the Mariners.

Fantasy Impact

As Tucker may not be a long term option for fantasy, he has the potential to be a good fill in for Marisnick. In his eight games since being sent down, he has gone 13-for-34 with three home runs. Tucker looks to keep the ball rolling with another chance at proving his worth in the big leagues.

Kyle Tucker heating up after being demoted to minors

Since being demoted on August 1, Kyle Tucker has hit .393 with two home runs for the Astros Triple-A affiliate, Fresno.

Fantasy Impact

Tucker has slashed 11-for-28 (.393 AVG) with two home runs, two steals and nine strikeouts in six games since being optioned to Triple-A Fresno. Being that he is on the 40-man roster, he could be a great bench bat as the Astros begin their probable deep playoff run.

Kyle Tucker fails to reach base again

Kyle Tucker went 0-for-4 with a strikeout on Friday as the Astros beat the Angels 3-1.

Fantasy Impact

The 21-year-old rookie is now 4-for-31 (.129) since being called up. It's not a good start at all, but for what it's worth Tucker hasn't exactly appeared overmatched. There's too much talent and upside to consider dropping him just yet, but fantasy owners can't be blamed for running out of patience.

Kyle Tucker hitless again on Friday

Kyle Tucker went 0-for-4 with a strikeouts on Friday as the Astros beat the Tigers 3-0.

Fantasy Impact

The 21-year-old rookie left five runners on base in this one as his batting average fell to .174 through seven big league games. It hasn't been pretty thus far, but Tucker simply has too much upside to give up on. As long as the Astros keep playing him he needs to be started in fantasy leagues.
