Kyle Tucker 2021 Outlook


Recommended Posts

Today was the big day his managers were waiting for, with an RBI triple off Pearson and later a 3R bomb against the pen. Good to see on offense.

Defensively, he made a somewhat flashy play on a ball to right, in which he stood in place with his glove outstretched fully 4 seconds before the ball landed right in the mitt. Cool play to watch, I like to see some style, don't get me wrong. I'm sure in his mind he's 100% sure he's making that catch every time, and who am I to say otherwise.

However...this is the old school argument...there is nothing to be gained and everything to lose on the 1% chance he misplays it this way. So, maybe it's just me, but I imagined Tucker coming back to the dugout after the play and Dusty Baker giving him this speech:

Not changing my opinion of him regardless of today, but Ross Stripling (R) at home. I'll predict an XBH at least, hopefully a dong. 

XBH in 4/5 games since this.  Dong today, on base 3 times. Expectedly heating up.

humor me and lets take away his first cup of coffee where his ops was 439 with 0 hrs and 1 sb in 28 games.

thats leaves 117 gp- 21 hrs, 15 sb, 76 rbi, 70 runs.

not bad considering he has under performed.

Username checks out. I approve of this post. Hadn’t looked into his splits but that’s really good to see. He’s been killing it. Maybe those new fangled stat machines know a thing or two. Pretty sure he’s like 97th-98th percentile in xBA and xSLG
