Presley will miss a couple more days on the concussion DL, Evan Woodbery of MLive Media Group reports. Presley is eligible to return from the disabled list prior to Detroit's game Friday, but the outfielder is still feeling the affects of his wall crash during last Thursday's contest. Mikie Mahtook has been the main beneficiary of Presley's absence, as he continues to start in center for Thursday's afternoon matchup with the Royals. Presley could return to the team by the end of the weekend series against Cleveland, but will likely come back after the team's scheduled off day Monday.
Presley was placed on the 7-day concussion DL on Friday. Presley will land on the DL following his crash into the wall during Thursday's game. In his place, the team has recalled outfielder Matt den Dekker from Triple-A Toledo while Presley recovers.
Presley underwent concussion tests Thursday after crashing into the center field wall, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports. McCosky speculated that there'd be some roster movement coming Friday, which may mean those examinations revealed that Presley indeed has a concussion. Perhaps it'll mean JaCoby Jones will resurface with the big club if Presley has to miss time.
Presley is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Mariners, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports. With southpaw James Paxton taking the mound for the Mariners, Presley will head to the bench for a second straight contest. As has been the case against most lefty starters, Mikie Mahtook will take over for Presley in center field.
Presley is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Mariners. Left-hander Ariel Miranda is taking the mound for Seattle, so Presley will head to the bench as the center field platoon continues. Mikie Mahtook will take over in center field for the evening.
