Springer hurts his hand/thumb.  Tucker on his way back up?  Would he get regular ABs?

Was just going to post this.

 

I would guess no and no.  Reddick, Marrisnick and Kemp play everyday.

Correa may be back next week as well, which would free up Marwin Gonzalez to log some more time in the OF.  Of course, Altuve is out as well, meaning Gonzalez will be needed there as well.

Good to see him back but where is he going to play?  

 

Kemp and Fisher seem locked in at the corners.  Can he play CF?  

 

Springer due back at the end of this week which means Turcker's stay might be brief.

Time to drop,  crowded OF and he's not even getting the ABs to prove that he can hit.

 

 

I was surprised he wasn't the one sent down when Springer came back.

I don’t think he’s proven he can hit major league pitching quite yet. The Astros definitely see something they like, but aren’t confident enough to let him play. Let him go back to AAA and wait til spring training.

He's close to a consensus top 10 prospect. Pretty much everyone likes him.

I don't understand why Reddick is starting over Tucker.....

Reddick is hitting .181 past 30 days.... LOL and they say Tucker is not ready to hit MLB.

Hinch is just another classic example of a team winning despite of him instead of b/c of him.

Yup.  Usually it takes an injury to remove a respected vet out of the lineup.  Either that or atrocious play and I do not believe Reddick is there yet.

He’ll be back in September I’m guessing. Maybe earlier. If he finishes the year poorly or just ok he’s going to be s fantastic buy in deep redrafts next year.

Not if Ted has another Spring Training like he did this past season. He won't be that deep

He'll be back but what will his role be?  To be a bench bat and maybe start once a week. Useless.

Sadly, yes useless. Top prospects for teams like Houston are simply fodder for the future, but really provide no immediate help.

He had the opportunity when he first got called up and chocked.  Overall he went 8 for 52....that's not "ready" status....specially since the advantage is on the Hitter because the "book" is not out on him.

 

You don't see Soto, Acuna, andujar and many other call ups on the bench?....because they hit when the opportunity was given.

 

This "ted Williams" is going to have to wait now.

The only scenario he gets regular PT is an injury or a horrific slump by Reddick.

In his last 7 AAA starts he has 8 home runs

 

you read that correctly

 

He might be kicking the door down to playing time.

Dude is red hot:

Tucker powers Grizzlies to division title

 

Quote

Tucker has homered in four straight games, totaling seven during that stretch, and has a long ball in eight of his past nine games with Grizzlies around a two-week stint with the big club. In that span, he's 20-for-36 to raise his batting average 24 points to .327.

If were were playing with inanimate objects and not people it would make sense to replace Springer with Tucker right now.
