Preston Tucker is currently leading the NL in RBI. That's right, a guy you probably never heard of is currently in the league in the NL in RBI thanks in part to last night's big 5 RBI game against the New York Mets.
His season statline is currently sitting at .288 AVG, 3 HR, 18 RBI, and 8 RUNS. He is currently ranked 5th out of all major league left fielders and is projected by experts to end the season around 89th.
Braves outfielder Preston Tucker went 2-for-4 with two doubles and five RBIs on Thursday vs. the Mets.
Spin: Tucker is now the National League RBI leader with 18, and he's hitting .288 with three homers and four doubles after spending all of 2017 in the Minors. He's been a major surprise for the Braves, who acquired the slugger in December after the Astros designated him for assignment. His emergence has allowed Atlanta to be patient with top prospect Ronald Acuna. (více...)

Points Leagues: Mother Tucker

Preston Tucker is on pace for 32 home runs, 129 runs batted in and a .278 batting average. I realize that the whole "on pace" argument three weeks into the season holds about as much water as a bottle with a hole in the bottom of it, but the point is that he is off to a very good start. Unexpected? I think so. After spending all of 2017 in AAA fixing flat tires for the Astros, he was traded to the Braves in the offseason where he would hopefully have the opportunity to play in the Majors. Ok, maybe he didn't fix any flats, but he did hit 24 home runs in 569 plate appearances. Perhaps the Astros felt they were one Tucker over the limit considering they also had Preston's younger brother Kyle in the organization. Kyle also happens to be their top hitting prospect. When the front office gave him the news I hope he said "Tucker out" as he exited the meeting. (více...)
