It could be that Presley’s stay is short and when these next two series are done, Inge gets the call and takes his place

Now they are down an infielder so they can have 6 outfielders (counting Jones)? I like Presley fine, but see no reason to carry both him and Tabata at a time when both Marte and Snider seem to be breaking out.

Presley deserved to break camp with the team but due to fact he had options he didnt. I hope he does well, he is a much better 4th outfielder /utility option rather than Tabata or Inge or Harrison. This is probably the best position player roster we have at this time. Good move by the front office. The Pirates just need to hold serve during this month but I think they should have momentum but as the saying goes momentum rests on your starting pitching that day.

Although he struggled with his control on Sunday, there were some encouraging signs.
