Tigers designated OF Alex Presley for assignment.

Presley was only with the club for a limited time as an extra bat off the bench, going 1-for-5 at the plate. There's a chance he could be scooped up off of waivers, otherwise he'll continue to provide organizational outfield depth for the Tigers.

SB Nation's Chris Cotillo reports that the Tigers are nearing a minor league contract with Alex Presley.

Presley opted out of his minor league deal with the Brewers a week ago after being removed from the 40-man roster. He'll give the Tigers some depth at all three outfield spots.

Brewers designated OF Alex Presley for assignment.

Jake Elmore was called up Tuesday and took his spot on the 40-man roster. Presley is batting just .198/.271/.293 over 47 games this season, but he could draw some interest on waivers.

Alex Presley left the yard for the second consecutive game, but it wasn't enough for the Brewers to overcome the Reds on Friday night in Cincinnati.

Presley's solo shot off Tim Adleman in the fifth inning wound up being the club's only offense in the ballgame. He finished the night 1-for-4 and also drew a walk. Presley has been mighty impressive in his limited time with the Brewers, slashing .310/.382/.655 with three homers and eight RBI. As long as he continues to find himself in the lineup, and in a premium lineup spot, he could be worthy of consideration as a fourth or fifth outfielder in deeper mixed leagues.

Alex Presley went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run Thursday against the Reds.

Presley's two-run shot in the eighth inning got the Brewers on the scoreboard and simultaneously ended Alfredo Simon's night. The outfielder has been forcing his way into the lineup more often in recent days after being recalled on April 21. Through Thursday's game, he's hitting .320/.379/.600 with two homers and seven RBI.

Alex Presley singled in his lone at-bat off the bench Thursday against the Twins.

Ramon Flores isn't hitting and it's clear Craig Counsell doesn't think much of Kirk Nieuwenhuis, so the opportunity is there for Presley to get considerable playing time in center field the Brewers. It's still a big mess -- all three candidates to play there are left-handed hitters -- but anyone who gets hot can come away with the job.

Brewers purchased the contract of OF Alex Presley from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Rule 5 reliever Zack Jones (shoulder) was shifted to the 60-day disabled list to open up a 40-man roster spot. Presley is a .259/.299/.393 hitter in over 1,000 plate appearances at the major league level and carries no fantasy relevance on the Brewers' bench.

Brewers manager Craig Counsell informed Alex Presley on Saturday that he will not make the club's Opening Day roster.

Presley now has 48 hours to find a major league offer from another club as a condition of his contract. His exclusion means that both Keon Broxton and Kirk Nieuwenhuis will make the Opening Day roster, though it remains unclear who will start in center field.
Sat, Apr 2, 2016 11:45:00 AM

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

Presley spent most of last season at Triple-A with the Astros, hitting .292/.345/.367 with three homers and 15 steals over 89 games. It's a good landing spot for him, as it remains to be seen whether Domingo Santana will hold up in center field defensively.

Alex Presley has accepted an assignment to Triple-A Fresno.

Presley had the option of electing free agency when he was moved off the Astros' 40-man roster last week, but the 30-year-old outfielder will remain with the organization. He is a .259/.299/.393 career hitter.
