Presley can do all of this. Big difference is that Paul doesnt have much long term value but is perfect for his role. Presley will have trade value and should continue to start in AAA. However, if an outfielder in Pitt goes down for an extended time, Presley should get the calland Paul stays the backup

Hes made solid contact the last couple of games so be patient. you dont demote because of a slump.

Hopefully to upgrade the ML roster, of course.

I think the Pirates think Paul can do everything Presley does with a better OF arm.

Then you have to decide what is going to hurt Jose more, a demotion to regain confidence or continue to struggle in the majors.
