2017

2016

The Pirates top pick in 2014, Tucker underwent shoulder surgery on his throwing arm at the end of August and was expected to miss 10-12 months. Prior to getting hurt, the shortstop slashed .293/.322/.377 in 329 PA for Low-A West Virginia, an improvement over his first rookie ball campaign .267/.368./.356. Tucker, 19, will likely have to watch much of the action in 2016 from the bench, but hes fortunate to have time on his side. Tucker and Kevin Newman a shortstop pick first in the 2015 draft will continue to compete as they progress up the organizational ladder.

2015

One of the youngest players taken in the 2014 draft, Tucker hit .404 in his senior season and played for Team USA against Japan in the 18-and-under World Cup. He is thought to be a better player on the defensive side of the ball, but Tucker will have plenty of time to develop the rest of his talents. Tucker's Gulf Coast League debut showed some of his future skill set. He hit .267/.368/.356 in 217 plate appearances, showing decent batting average ability but with little power. The shortstop also stole 13 bases, an area that might help fantasy owners down the road. The 24th overall pick has little competition as a true shortstop inside the Pittsburgh organization.
