Pirates OF Alex Presley

Postby SpecialFNK » Mon Jun 27, 2011 12:41 pm

the Pirates are calling up Alex Presley.
Pirates recalled OF Alex Presley from Triple-A Indianapolis.
Presley was pulled from the Indy lineup on Sunday shortly after Jose Tabata went down with a quadriceps injury and is likely to see regular action in left field for the big league Bucs. The 25-year-old was batting .336/.389/.500 with eight home runs, 36 RBI and 18 stolen bases in 75 games this season at the Triple-A level. He should have value in NL-only fantasy leagues.


thoughts?

he didn't have much success last year with Pittsburgh..
19 G/ 23 AB - .261/.292/.304/.596/ 0 HR, 1 SB.

this year in the minors..
AAA- 75 G/ 292 AB - .336/.389/.500/.889/ 8 HR, 18 SB

last year in the minors..
AAA- 69 G/ 272 AB - .294/.349/.460/.809/ 6 HR, 8 SB
AA- 67 G/ 246 AB - .350/.399/.533/.932/ 6 HR, 5 SB

if/when Tabata is healthy, does Presley go back down? or could he remain and start even after Tabata returns?

Not sure what the plan is, but he might platoon with X. Paul who is hitting RHP pretty well lately

I'm jumping on his wagon based on this years AAA numbers and the fact he's 25-26. Nice first game and if he continues to play (which i think he will) steals, runs and a little pop should be to come. Worth a flier in 12 team and larger leagues.
