The Astros’ Kyle Tucker has been named American League Player of the Month for September and October.
It’s the first time in Tucker’s young career that he has won the honor. In the combined months, combined for the limited October schedule that coincides with the end of the regular season, Tucker led the AL in OPS (1.130) while hitting .346 with 10 doubles, one triple, eight home runs, and 19 RBI. He ranked second in the AL in that time frame with a .438 on-base percentage and a .692 slugging percentage.
For the season, Tucker is hitting .294 with 30 home runs and 92 RBI. He is the first Astro to win the league monthly honor since Alex Bregman in August of 2019.
