  • Kyle Tucker On The Bench Again Friday

    Houston Astros outfielder Kyle Tucker (illness) remains out of the starting lineup on Friday against the Cleveland Guardians. Tucker was scratched from Thursday's lineup with an illness, and he will remain on the bench for another game. Chas McCormick is getting the start in right field and will hit seventh against Guardians right-handed rookie Hunter Gaddis, who is making his MLB debut. McCormick hasn't hit for much average this year (.236 in 265 plate appearances), but he does have 11 home runs and 29 RBI in 76 games played. In the last week, he's gone 4-for-12 (.333) with a homer, three RBI and two runs scored in five games. He'll be a mediocre low-cost DFS target hitting near the bottom of Houston's lineup Friday.

  • Kyle Tucker Scratched With Illness

    Houston Astros outfielder Kyle Tucker (illness) was scratched from the starting lineup on Thursday against the Cleveland Guardians, according to the team. Aledmys Diaz will get the nod in left field and will bat fifth in the batting order against Guardians right-hander Zach Plesac. Fantasy managers should consider Tucker day-to-day and remove him from their starting lineups. Diaz isnt a bad low-cost DFS play in the matchup against Cleveland. He's hitting .349 (15-for-43) with three home runs, five RBI and eight runs scored in 12 games over the last two weeks. Overall, Diaz is hitting .256/.311/.422 with nine home runs, 26 RBI, 28 runs scored and one stolen base in 69 games played.

  • Kyle Tucker Homers, Walks Twice On Tuesday

    Houston Astros outfielder Kyle Tucker had a solid day at the plate in the team's 5-3 loss to the Oakland Athletics on Tuesday. He went 1-for-2 with a solo home run and two walks in the game. Tucker now has 19 home runs, 64 RBI and 42 runs on the year to go along with 16 stolen bases and a .251/.341/.471 slash line. He's maintaining a career-best 49.2% fly ball rate, but he's unfortunately paired that with career-lows in both hard-hit rate (38.3%) and average exit velocity (89.5 mph). If he can keep his fly ball rate intact while tapping into last year's hard contact metrics (47.5% hard-hit rate, 91.4 mph average exit velocity), he could be in for a strong finish to the 2022 season.
