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 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 drove home a pair of runs on Sunday, leading the Tigers to a 5-3 victory over the Indians.

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.
