Astros purchased the contract of Preston Tucker from Triple-A Fresno
Tucker will be called up in lieu of the Astros placing George Springer on the disabled list. Tucker has been mashing in Triple-A Fresno, to the tune of a .320 average with 10 home runs. Tucker could see some time in the outfield, or the Astros could elect to let Evan Gattis play some left field. However, with Gattis' poor defensive play, it would be more than likely that Gattis will remain in the DH spot. Analysis: Colby Conway
Astros placed George Springer (head) on the 7-day disabled list.
Springer crashed into the outfield wall on Tuesday and he has been evaluated for a concussion. Preston Tucker was called up on Wednesday, indicating that he will likely spend some time on the DL. While the batting average isn't where owners want it to be, it's hard to complain when he already has four homers and 10 stolen bases on the season. Analysis: Colby Conway
