“Most underrated position player in MLB” “So re-sign him now?”

Kyle Tucker had his 100th RBI of the season for the Houston Astros that year, becoming the first full-time outfielder since 2009. The last Houston outfielder to do so was Carlos Lee, who had 102 RBIs. With one month left in the regular season, Tucker can fly past Lee’s 102 RBI mark.

King Tucker. 💯He is the first full-time OF since 2009 to reach 100 RBI.

Kyle Tucker scored his 100th RBI in the Astros game against the Tampa Bay Rays earlier today. In the first inning, with runners on the corners, Tucker smoked a flyball over the Rays outfielder’s head, scoring a goal for Jose Altuve in the process. The Astros took an early 1-0 lead over Tampa.

Kyle Tucker had a fantastic season with the Astros. As of Tuesday, the slugger has a .261 batting average with 28 home runs. He’s ranked 19th in MLB for most home runs this season. He’s got this Houston Astros roster that looks like a contender to win the World Series this year.

@astros Soooooo re-sign him now? 🥺👉🏼👈🏼

Given the great season he’s having, fans are ready for the team to re-sign him before it’s too late. He is currently on a one-year deal with the club and will begin arbitration next year before becoming an unrestricted free agent in 2026. Now is the time to re-sign Tucker before he gets more expensive or decides to “bet on himself.” Aaron Judge did this year.

@astros His price just keeps going. Man is a monster. Hopefully we can sign him

The Houston Astros selected Kyle Tucker as the fifth overall pick in the 2015 MLB draft. He made his debut with the team in 2018. He has since been an AL Triple Leader (2020), All-MLB Second Team (2021), and made the All-Star Game (2022). With each passing year, Tucker became a better baseball player. The way he played this year his value will continue to rise.

@astros This is actually a WILD statistic. Kyle Tucker is the 🤴🏻

Houston fans are optimistic he will continue to improve and be in the MVP race for the 2023 season. It’s definitely possible for someone two home runs and eight stolen bases away to join the 30-30 club. The 30-30 Club is a rare list of players who racked up 30 home runs and 30 stolen bases during the season. There’s a real possibility he’ll hit that milestone a month into the regular season.

The Houston Astros are in great shape to pull off a postseason run
