Astros' Kyle Tucker Could Return This Weekend


March 25

Kyle Tucker could return to the lineup this weekend for the Houston Astros, Brian McTaggart of reports.

Tucker suffered an ankle sprain during the World Baseball Classic while sliding into second base last weekend. The injury never seemed serious and only cost him less than a week of action. Tucker is fully expected to be ready for Opening Day. This is good news for fantasy players, as Tucker is expected to be a top-15 selection in most leagues.

The Astros also hope to have Yordan Alvarez available for Opening Day as he continues to deal with wrist soreness, an ailment that has bothered him since last season. If healthy, Alvarez is almost a sure first-round pick in fantasy leagues, but that lingering wrist injury could give some pause and to look for a more sure thing with their early pick/s.

Houston is still considered to be the class of the American League West and stands at -185 to win the division. You can find the odds for every team to win their division on the FanDuel Sportsbook.
