Team source w/ Pirates confirms Alex Presley expected to join club in Cincy for tomorrow. Unsure of corresponding move, but Presley on way.— Colin Dunlap (@colin_dunlap) June 5, 2012
Colin Dunlap of The Fan tweets that a Pirates source has confirmed that Alex Presley has been recalled and will join the team in Cincinnati tomorrow. The obvious move would be to send Gorkys Hernandez back to AAA. Alternatively, the Pirates could put Jose Tabata on the DL. I've been particularly hard on Tabata over the past week, but Clint Hurdle directly defended what appeared to be his lack of hustle, so it would be a reversal of that position, deciding that he, in fact, can't play through the injury.
