Alex Presley to be Recalled?

Indianapolis Indians broadcaster Scott McCauley had an interesting tweet tonight:

Alex Presley exchanging hugs & shaking hands in the dugout. Go get ‘em Press

Presley wasn’t in the lineup tonight, and there’s a good chance that he will be recalled tomorrow.  Aaron Thompson was up for a spot start today in Pittsburgh, but the Pirates need another position player, with a short bench after Ryan Ludwick hit the disabled list today.  Presley would be the best bet to get that call to the majors, and it sounds like that scenario will play out tomorrow.

    Yes, I saw it too.  Both Presley and d’Arnaud were pulled from the line-up shortly before game time.  They were in the dugout, but then in the 3rd inning or so, there were handshakes all around.

    If Alex Presley & Chase d’Arnaud get recalled today, I suspect Aaron Thompson & Pedro Ciriaco would be sent down to Indy.
