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. Jul 10 - 12:07 AM

Tigers placed OF Alex Presley on the 7-day concussion disabled list.

Alex Presley went 3-for-4, scored three times, stole a base and hit a solo home run versus the White Sox on Saturday.

He went deep off starter Miguel Gonzalez immediately following a homer by Nick Castellanos in the second inning. Presley has been playing every day since being called up from Triple-A on May 28th. The 31-year-old journeyman has a .333 batting average with one homer, six runs, three RBI and two steals in five games. He had a .213 batting average with two homers and nine RBI in 40 games in the minors before getting the call to the majors.

Tigers purchased the contract of OF Alex Presley from Triple-A Toledo.

He's taking Tyler Collins' spot on the roster. Presley, 31, received the promotion despite a .213/.278/.303 batting line at Toledo. He should see a bit of playing time in center field.

Alex Presley went 2-for-3 with a double Wednesday against the Blue Jays.

While JaCoby Jones's play has gotten the attention, it's actually Presley hitting best among the Tigers' center field options this spring; he's 10-for-24 with a pair of homers. Less inspiring is Presley's career .253/.295/.382 line in 1,156 career regular-season at-bats. Still, the Tigers have no good choices for center field and the left-handed-hitting Presley has to be in the mix, probably for a platoon spot, with his performance.
Mar 22 - 4:17 PM

Alex Presley was held out of action Thursday after taking a pitch off his elbow Wednesday.

Presley just has some minor soreness and bruising. The veteran outfielder signed a minor league contract with Detroit in December after being outrighted off the Tigers' 40-man roster near the end of the 2016 season. He's probably ticketed for Triple-A Toledo to open the 2017 campaign.
Mar 16 - 2:32 PM

Tigers re-signed OF Alex Presley to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Presley was outrighted off Detroit's 40-man roster toward the end of the 2016 season, but he'll have an opportunity to earn that spot back in camp next spring. The 31-year-old outfielder is a .253/.295/.382 career hitter in 379 games at the major league level.

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.
