Astros promote Kyle Tucker

The day Houston Astros fans have been waiting for….the arrival of OF Kyle Tucker.

 

This move was likely after Houston cleared two spots off the 40-man roster, including sending relief pitcher James Hoyt to the Indians in exchange for minor leaguer Tommy DeJuneas.

Tucker was a first-round pick in the 2015 MLB Draft and has quickly risen through the minor league ranks. He is slashing .306/.371/.520 with 14 home runs and 66 RBI for Triple-A Fresno.

Jake Marisnick will be sent down to Triple-A in the corresponding move, as per MLB.com’s Brian McTaggart.

With this call-up, the Astros became even more dangerous in the American League.
