Troy Tauscher reports the news former Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Alex Presley who was designated for assignment on June 28, 2016 decided to turn down an offer to play baseball for the Colorado Springs Sky Sox on Friday. Presley has decided to enter the free agent market on Friday. Presley was released by the Brewers since his batting average of .189 in 47 games played was a factor in the Brewers designating him for assignment. Presley made his debut in the Major Leagues with the Pittsburgh Pirates in 2010. Presley has placed as an outfielder for the Pirates from 2010-2013, the Minnesota Twins in 2013, the Houston Astros from 2014-2015 and the Milwaukee Brewers in 2016. Even though his batting average is not going to impress many teams in the Major Leagues his ability to play all three outfield positions will draw interest from other teams in the Major Leagues that will be needing his services before the end of the current baseball season even it is in a reserve role due to his excellent fielding skills.

He has nothing to lose. If no team will sign him to a major league contract, he can find another minor league contract.

I was thinking the same deal. Presley can sign a minor league deal with another team if there is no team in the Majors that wants him at this time.
