Presley was assigned to Triple-A Toledo on Tuesday. Presley was designated for assignment on August 27, but has cleared waivers and is heading to Toledo. Presley spent most of the season with the Brewers, where he hit just .198/.271/.293, and has played just three games for the Tigers.
Presley was designated for assignment Saturday, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports. With Jose Iglesias' return from the DL on Saturday, the Tigers cleared a spot by designating Presley for assignment. The 31-year-old outfielder hadn't appeared in any of the Tigers' last five games and was hitting a mere .198 at the big league level on the season. He'll now be subject to waivers but he could return to the Tigers organization if he goes unclaimed.
Presley was officially recalled from Triple-A Toledo on Thursday. The versatile outfielder has struggled at the plate this season, slashing just .198/.271/.564 across 47 games for the Brewers earlier this season. He's fared much better at the Triple-A level, batting .314 with 15 RBI, 23 walks and 26 strikeouts in 172 at-bats. In order to clear room on the roster, the Tigers designated right-hander Bobby Parnell for assignment Thursday morning.
Presley will be recalled by the Tigers on Thursday, Matthew B. Mowery of The Oakland Press reports. The Tigers reportedly have no candidates to move to the 60-day DL and Mowery indicates the likely move will be the team designating someone for assignment. Presley doesn't provide much in terms of either power at the plate or speed on the basepaths and hit just .198/.271/.564 over 47 games with the Brewers earlier in the season, but has seen some success at Triple-A and he can play all three outfield positions.
Presley was signed by the Tigers on Saturday, Katie Strang of ESPN reports. Presley will likely be on his way to Triple-A Toledo after signed a deal with the Tigers. He was designated for assignment by the Brewers on June 28 and elected to go into free agency instead of heading to their Triple-A club. Presley was hitting .198/.271/.293 with three home runs and 11 RBI during 116 at-bats for the Brewers this season.
