04/06/2012 1:21 PM - The Northwest Indiana Oilmen have added right-handed pitcher Jim Tucker to their 2012 pitching staff this summer. Tucker is currently a senior at Chicago State University and will be contributing with them before heading east to Whiting, Indiana to join the Oilmen. Tucker has been primarily a starter with Chicago State and during his time there he has thrown four complete games in 144 total innings. Tucker could start with the Oilmen, but he also has thrown out of the bullpen in the past which makes him a very flexible pitcher. This 5’10 righty calls Gary, Indiana his hometown and attended Calumet High School where he played ball. The Oilmen welcome Tucker to the team and hopes that he can be a big contributor to making this first season in the Midwest Collegiate League a successful one.
