Outfielder Preston Tucker is back with the Braves as the club announced it has acquired him from the Reds in exchange for cash considerations. Tucker started the season with the Braves but was sent to the Reds along with Lucas Sims and Matt Wisler in exchange for outfielder Adam Duvall on July 30.

Between both clubs, the 28-year-old Tucker has hit .240/.302/.429 with six home runs and 27 RBI in 169 plate appearances. With the Reds, Tucker also spent some time at Triple-A Louisville.

With rosters having expanded, Tucker will provide outfield depth for the Braves as they attempt to claim the NL East title.
