Two short videos today courtesy of the GCL Pirates fan page, one showing a hit from first round pick Cole Tucker and the other shows him making a play at shortstop. Tucker had a string of getting on base exactly two times in each of his first six games. He broke that string yesterday by reaching base three times. He is hitting .360/.484/.400 through 25 at-bats.
The second highlight is Tucker making a play just to his left. He’s playing in on the grass with a runner on third. He’s made five errors in six games at shortstop, with three coming in his first game as a pro and two coming in another game. It’s too soon to worry about the errors though, especially coming from someone who turns 18 tomorrow.
