Back from a 10-day stint at Triple-A Fresno, Preston Tucker joined the Astros on Wednesday as the club's fourth September callup, playing left field and batting seventh in his first game back in Houston.
The Astros made their first of what should be a few waves of roster moves after their 8-3 win over the Mariners on Monday night in advance of Tuesday's date to expand the rosters by calling up right-handed pitcher Josh Fields, infielder Jonathan Villar and selecting left-hander Joe Thatcher to the Major League roster.
