Tucker opened the season as the team’s left fielder but eventually gave way to Ronald Acuña Jr. after he was promoted. Tucker’s role was reduced significantly after Acuña’s arrival and eventually ended up back at Triple-A.
Tucker hit .256/.307/.444 with four home runs in 62 games with Atlanta. He hit just .189/.286/.378 in 17 games while with Cincinnati.
