RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Tucker has raked at every stop in the minors since the Astros made him their seventh-round draft pick in 2012. In 138 games between Double-A Corpus Christi and Triple-A Oklahoma City last season, the 24-year-old hit .282/.352/.481 with 24 home runs, 94 RBI and five steals in 536 at-bats. His power bat and ability to play the corner outfield positions along with the occasional start at first base gives him added versatility on defense, and when you combine that with his rapid advancement in the Astros' system thus far, we could be looking at a dark horse candidate for Houston's Opening Day roster. The safer bet, however, is that he opens 2015 where he left off last season; with the RedHawks in Oklahoma City.
