Presley went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer Thursday against the Reds.

Competitive Edge Analysis

His long ball chased Cincy starter Alfredo Simon from the game, but it wasn't nearly enough. Even so, the journeyman outfielder's been a pleasant surprise in limited action for the Brewers, hitting .320 now with a couple homers in 25 at-bats. He should keep drawing starts -- seemingly with a prime lineup spot, as he's been hitting second -- as long as Domingo Santana (shoulder) is out of the lineup, although it's unclear how long that may be.

Presley went 2-for-4 with a walk and a strikeout while batting second for the Brewers in a losing effort Wednesday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

He moved up to the No. 2 spot in the order while Jonathan Villar was in the leadoff spot Wednesday, thanks to another scratch for Domingo Santana (shoulder). Through 10 games, Presley is 6-for-21 with a homer, five RBI and a 3:4 BB:K in part-time duty for the Brewers. Currently, his playing time hinges on the health of Santana, Ryan Braun, and the performance of Kirk Nieuwenhuis and Ramon Flores.

Presley was a late addition to Monday's lineup for Milwaukee's matchup with the Angels, and will bat leadoff.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Presley will replace Domingo Santana in right field after he was a late scratch due to shoulder soreness. In two starts this season, Presley is 4-for-13 with one home run and five RBI. It is unclear the severity of Santana's shoulder injury, so if he is forced to miss more time Presley could see a bump in playing time in the short term.

Presley will get his first start in RF Wednesday against the Cubs, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Presley will get the start with Domingo Santana out of the lineup Wednesday night. Presley has had only seven at-bats since being recalled last Thursday but he's connected for hits on two of those. He's a low-end fantasy play when he starts in daily leagues, but there probably won't be much value to extract in season-long leagues.

Presley hit a pinch-hit, two-run home run in Sunday's victory over the Phillies.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Presley has started just one game since being recalled last Thursday, but he has pinch hit in the other three games the Brewers have played with him on the roster, and has two hits in three at-bats. He will continue working as a part-time outfielder for the Brewers.

The Brewers recalled Presley from Triple-A Colorado Springs on Thursday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Presley was one of the Brewers' final cuts this spring, and posted a .963 OPS through his first nine games with Colorado Springs, so the team decided to add him to the major league roster as the fifth outfielder. His role with the big club is not immediately clear, but Brewers center fielders have posted a league-worst .484 OPS this season, so there could be an opportunity for him to see some at-bats.

The Brewers informed Presley on Friday that he will not make the team's Opening Day roster, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Presley gave himself a real chance to make the club by posting a .952 OPS this spring, but he was ultimately beaten out for a roster spot by Keon Broxton and Kirk Nieuwenhuis. Presley will have two days to seek out a big league job with another club, but if he does not find one, his season will likely begin with Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Presley notched a 1-for-2 outing, along with a walk and a strikeout, Tuesday against Cincinnati.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Presley has put together a slash line of .300/.417/.575 in 21 appearances throughout spring training, and has three home runs to go with 11 RBI. The center fielder is currently slotted behind Keon Broxton and Kirk Nieuwenhuis and will be battling to make the team's Opening Day roster.

Presley agreed to a minor league contract with the Brewers on Monday that included an invite to spring training.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Presley spent much of the past six seasons bouncing between Triple-A and the majors with various organizations. His latest stop was in Houston, where he slashed .292/.345/.367 with Triple-A Fresno and went 3-12 with an RBI while with the Astros. The 30-year-old also possesses the ability to play all three outfield spots, making him a decent piece of organizational depth for the Brewers going forward.
