Kyle Tucker taking seat Thursday afternoon for Astros

Houston Astros right fielder Kyle Tucker is not in the lineup for Thursday afternoon's series finale against left-hander Yusei Kikuchi and the Seattle Mariners.

What It Means:

Tucker will sit with Chas McCormick moving to right and Aledmys Diaz making a start in left. Diaz will hit fifth, behind Alex Bregman, Carlos Correa, and Yuli Gurriel. Tucker went 1-for-3 with a pair of runs scored, a steal, and a walk in a 7-5 win over the Mariners on Wednesday.

numberFire’s models project Diaz for 10.4 FanDuel points and he has a $2,500 salary on Thursday. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Astros have an implied total of 4.9 runs.
