Kyle Tucker, Right Field

Kyle Tucker moved around a good bit in the order in 2021, seeing at least 50 at-bats in at least four different places in the lineup. His best position was seventh (.316/.374/.556), but he also did well in sixth (.298/.355/.587), while floundering in his opportunities at cleanup (.195/.340/.341).

With Correa theoretically gone, Tucker moves up permanently and does damage with more men on and better protection behind him. In 81 at-bats, Tucker had six home runs and 16 RBI from the fifth spot while slashing .296/.360/.593.
