Presley underwent concussion tests Thursday after crashing into the center field wall, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

EDGE Analysis

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 out of the lineup Wednesday against the Diamondbacks.

EDGE Analysis

Since dropping Tyler Collins from the 40-man roster in late May, the Tigers have been running out a three-headed monster of Presley, Andrew Romine and Mikie Mahtook in center field. Mahtook will serve as the primary options against left-handed pitching, while Romine and Presley share the workload against right-handers, cutting into the value of all three players. Presley, who started Tuesday, with thus give way to Romine on Wednesday, even with the Diamondbacks bringing another righty (Taijuan Walker) to the hill.

Presley is not in the lineup for Friday's series opener against Boston.

EDGE Analysis

Although Presley will sit for the second straight game, this is simply a platoon decision with another southpaw on the mound in Brian Johnson. Mikie Mahtook will man center field Friday while batting seventh in the order. With left-handers Chris Sale and Drew Pomeranz on deck for Saturday and Sunday, Presley may not see as much time on the field this series.

Presley is out of the lineup Thursday against the Angels.

EDGE Analysis

Presley typically sits against left-handed pitching, but he'll ride the pine with righty J.C. Ramirez on the mound for the opposing Angels. Andrew Romine will take his place in center field for the series finale.

Presley is out of the lineup Sunday against the White Sox.

EDGE Analysis

Since being added to the 40-man roster last weekend in place of Tyler Collins, who was designated for assignment, Presley has taken control of the larger portion of a platoon in center field with JaCoby Jones. With a 5-for-15 mark at the plate and two stolen bases in five games, Presley looks to be fairly secure in his role, but he'll still hit the bench when opponents bring left-handers to the hill, as will be the case Sunday with southpaw David Holmberg starting for the White Sox.

Presley went 3-for-4 with a solo home run, a stolen base and three runs during Saturday's win over the White Sox.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran journeyman has received just 17 plate appearances this season, and while he might carve out a fleeting role in the Detroit outfield, the 31-year-old Presley offers very limited fantasy upside. He posted a .252/.296/.381 slash line over 338 career games entering Saturday, after all.

Presley is not in the lineup Friday against the White Sox.

EDGE Analysis

As expected, Presley will receive a night off with southpaw Derek Holland taking the mound for Chicago. He should continue to act on the strong side of a platoon for now, although Mikie Mahtook will pick up a start Friday in his stead.
