A four-year standout at the University of Florida, Houston selected Tucker in the seventh round of the 2012 draft. Preston advanced quickly through the Astros' minor league system, smashing 68 homers and driving in 270 runs while posting a .503 slugging percentage in 348 games. Tucker replaced an injured George Springer in the Astros outfield in May of 2015 and responded by clubbing 13 home runs in 300 at-bats in his rookie season.
