Presley, McPherson recalled from minors
The Pittsburgh Pirates recalled outfielder Alex Presley and
right-hander Kyle McPherson on Friday from Triple-A
To make room on the roster, infielder Chase d’Arnaud was
optioned to Class A Bradenton and first baseman Jeff Clement was
out-righted to Bradenton.
Since the moves were made before Sept. 1, both Presley and
McPherson would be eligible to play in the post-season if the
Presley spent much of the season with the Pirates but was
optioned to Indianapolis in early August. He was batting leadoff
against the Milwaukee Brewers Friday night, and was hitting .234
with eight home runs in 77 games for Pittsburgh.
McPherson made his major-league debut earlier this month. He
pitched two scoreless innings of relief against San Diego in his
only major-league game.
