Orioles signed OF Alex Presley to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Presley quietly produced a quality .314/.354/.416 batting line over 264 plate appearances with the Tigers last season. The 32-year-old should be in the mix for a reserve outfielder job this spring.
Feb 19 - 10:25 AM

Alex Presley has elected to become a free agent.

Presley chose that path in lieu of an outright assignment to Triple-A Toledo. The 32-year-old outfielder posted a decent .314/.354/.416 batting line across 264 plate appearances this season for the Tigers and should be able to find a one-year major league deal on the open market.

Alex Presley clubbed his third home run of the season as the Tigers fell to the Twins in their regular season finale on Sunday.

The loss means the Tigers finish with a 64-98 record on the season, netting them the first overall pick in next June's draft. Presley's solo shot off of Bartolo Colon in the third inning was the only offense the Tigers could muster in the game. Presley finishes the year hitting an impressive .314/.354/.416 with three homers and 20 RBI in 264 plate appearances.

Alex Presley went 4-for-6 with a homer and a double against the A's on Tuesday.

Presley has his average up to .322 in 205 at-bats. It's a light .322, for sure; the homer tonight was just his second and he's walked a mere 12 times. Still, it's pretty hard to be a bad player while hitting .322. He'll continue to get outfield starts against righties the rest of the way.

Alex Presley went 2-for-3 and scored a run in a win over the White Sox on Friday.

He singled and scored the Tigers' first run in the fourth inning. The 32-year-old journeyman has enjoyed a nice long career as a backup outfielder. He has played for five teams in eight years. He has a .314 batting average with one home run and 23 runs scored in 210 plate appearances this season.

Alex Presley poked four singles in four at-bats during a loss to the Indians on Saturday.

He had a perfect day at the plate but wasn't able to help put any runs on the board. The 32-year-old boosted his batting average to .312 in 171 plate appearances as a back-up outfielder. He has just one home run with 12 RBI. He's hit 27 home runs in his eight-year career.

Tigers activated OF Alex Presley from the 10-day disabled list.

The 32-year-old has been on the shelf since July 29 due to a mild oblique strain. Prior to hitting the disabled list, he was hitting .313/.364/.404 with one homer, 11 RBI and three swipes in 109 plate appearances.

Alex Presley went 3-for-5 with an RBI and a run scored against the Twins on Saturday.

He smoked a ground-rule double that plated a run in the eighth inning, then rode home on a Justin Upton longball. The veteran part-time outfielder has made the most of his limited opportunities this year. He has a .329 batting average with one homer and 10 RBI in 93 plate appearances.

Alex Presley went 2-for-3 and drove home a pair of runs on Sunday, leading the Tigers to a 5-3 victory over the Indians.

Presley delivered a two-run double in the sixth inning that broke a 1-1 tie and put the Tigers ahead to stay. The veteran outfielder is now hitting .286/.355/.393 with a homer, nine RBI and three stolen bases in 63 plate appearances with the big league club. He has a bit of power and a bit of speed, and could be worth a flier in deeper mixed leagues as long as he's seeing the bulk of the playing time in center field for the Tigers.
