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. Apr 21 - 5:08 PM

Date:

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.
Apr 21 - 9:39 AM

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.
Apr 2 - 11:45 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.

Astros sent OF Alex Presley outright to Triple-A Fresno.

It's the second time this season he's been removed from the 40-man roster. Presley can elect free agency if he wants.
Fri, Jul 24, 2015 01:27:00 PM

Astros designated OF Alex Presley for assignment.

The move was made to create a spot on the roster for Scott Feldman who was activated from the disabled list on Saturday. Presley appeared in just eight games with the Astros this season, hitting .250/.308/.250 with five strikeouts in 12 at-bats. He should generate some interest on waivers.

The Astros will call up OF Alex Presley from Triple-A Fresno.

He's expected to replace George Springer, who left Wednesday night's game with a bruised wrist. The 29-year-old appeared in 89 games for Houston last season, batting .244 with six homers and 19 RBI. In 244 at-bats for Fresno this season, Presley has hit .308 with 10 steals and 35 RBI.

Astros sent OF Alex Presley outright to Triple-A Fresno.

Presley isn't a bad potential extra outfielder option, but he passed through waivers likely because teams weren't willing to pay his $1 million price tag. He had the opportunity to refuse the outright assignment and become a free agent but declined since it would have meant forfeiting the aforementioned contract.
Wed, Apr 8, 2015 01:21:00 PM

Evan Drellich of the Houston Chronicle reports that Alex Presley has hit outright waivers.

Presley was designated for assignment last week and can now be snatched up by any team willing to take on his $1 million salary for 2015. If he's not claimed, he will presumably remain with the organization. He'd lose his $1 million salary if he opts for free agency.

Astros designated OF Alex Presley for assignment.

The Astros would reportedly like to hang on to Presley, who can play all three outfield spots and offers flexibility, but it's possible that they attempt to trade him. While his bat is no great shakes (.244/.281/.346 last season), he's has value as a major league bench piece.
Wed, Apr 1, 2015 09:23:00 AM

Astros and OF Alex Presley avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $1 million contract.

Presley was arbitration-eligible for the first time as a Super Two player. MLBTradeRumors.com projected him to earn $1.2 million, so it looks like the Astros might have gotten a small discount. Presley is a career .259/.299/.395 hitter over parts of five seasons and can play all three outfield spots.
Tue, Nov 18, 2014 02:57:00 PM

Alex Presley went 3-for-5 with two RBI and a run scored in a win over the Mariners Sunday.

Presley's handprint was all over the offense, as he had a two-run single in the fifth inning before singling and scoring in the seventh. Presley also stole a run in that seventh inning, his fifth of the season. The 29-year-old, who missed time with an oblique injury this season, is hitting .256/.295/.366 on the season.
Sun, Sep 21, 2014 07:19:00 PM

Alex Presley returned to action on Friday, going 0-for-1 in a victory over the Athletics.

The best thing to take away from the ballgame is that he remained in the game to play left field defensively, meaning he should be ready to go for further action. He's expected to function as a bench player over the season's final month, so his value is limited to AL-only formats.
Sat, Sep 6, 2014 04:36:00 AM

Alex Presley (oblique) said he may be available as a pinch hitter for Wednesday's game against the Angels.

Presley has missed close to two months with a strained right oblique, but it appears he's close. He took batting practice last week without issue, so his situation appears to be day-to-day at this point. He'll return as a bench player.
