Tucker is a coachable OF/RHP prospect who worked hard on his skills during his time at the Spring Training at Historic Dodgertown. In the field, Tucker makes the routine plays and keeps his throws accurate to his target. Getting into a lower fielding position can help Tucker improve defensively. At the plate, this RHH sets up in a narrow stance and drives the ball to all fields. Tucker can improve as a hitter by working a smoother load into his swing. On the mound, Tucker gathers over the rubber and stays inline towards the plate. His fastball tops out at 57mph. Lengthening his stride can help Tucker improve as a pitcher. With four more years to develop, Tucker has the time and potential to further progress his skills on the field.

Tucker is a thin, athletic, 2-way player who plays OF and RHP. Defensively, Tucker has quick/active feet, agile movements, and soft/presentable hands. He has good pre-pitch actions, he takes good angles to the ball, and his exchange is quick and clean with accuracy to his target. On the mound, Tucker stands over the rubber well balanced, he separates on time, and lands in a square direction; competing in the zone. Offensively, Tucker has a crouched set-up, an aggressive swing, and he stays inside the ball well. He has a direct barrel, swings on plane, and uses his lower body. Tucker can continue to get better with work on the following.
