The brother of Pirates outfielder Cole Tucker, Carson joined his sibling as a first-round pick after quickly rising up draft boards.
The younger Tucker has the potential to emerge as a big-league-caliber shortstop with excellent control and bat speed at the plate. Strength certainly isn’t Tucker’s top trait, but he improved in that department recently which in turned helped his power. He has also improved his vision at the plate which has allowed him to hit balls all across the outfield, which is another great trait for a hitter to possess.
Tucker is an average runner but has great footwork in the infield, leaving him as a solid choice at shortstop. His arm strength is also good with consistency on the defensive side in addition to a high IQ both at the plate and in the field.
