Wed Aug 2519:54Kyle Tucker Returns With A Pair Of Hits
Houston Astros outfielder Kyle Tucker went 2-for-5 in the team's 6-5 win over the Royals on Wednesday. Tucker has been sidelined since August 14 after being placed on the COVID-reserve list. At the time Tucker was coming off a fantastic month of July that saw him slash .291/.325/.646 with 14 extra-base hits and 17 runs batted in over a 21-game span. Tucker returns to a suddenly crowded outfield that includes the white-hot Aledmys Diaz, veteran stalwart Michael Brantley and talented phenom Jake Meyers. But fantasy managers can rest easy that Tucker should see everyday at-bats moving forward and is second on the team with 71 runs batted in this season.
