Today's player is the Houston Astros' outfielder Kyle Tucker, who can commit to the USA team in the 2023 World Baseball Classic.
Houston drafted Kyle Tucker with the fifth overall pick in the first round of the 2015 MLB draft. Tucker had his first hit and RBI in his first big league game against the White Sox on July 7, 2018.
In 2021, Tucker marked .294, 30 long balls, 107 RBIs, and 25 stolen bases in 150 contests, helping Houston propel to the World Series.
The 2022 AL All-Star hit 30 home runs for the second straight year and recorded a .258/.331/.479 slash line with 107 RBIs and 25 stolen bases this season, winning his first World Series Title and AL Gold Glove Award.
The 25-year-old young player collected two homers and four RBIs in Game 1 of the World Series against the Phillies on October 28, 2022, becoming the first player in franchise history with a multi-homer game in a Fall Classic.
Our baseball analyst commented, "he can hit a home run without a strong swing relative to his big swing but rationally have good contact with a pitch, relaxing. So, he is a possible player to bat a higher average and many long balls."
