The White Sox have released outfielder Alex Presley, per an announcement from the team’s Triple-A affiliate. Presley had been playing at Charlotte since signing a minors deal in late May.
Presley, who’s within a month of his 33rd birthday, opened the season with the Orioles organization. He has had trouble getting things going at the plate at the highest level of the minors, turning in 232 plate appearances of .238/.306/.314 hitting in his two stops this year.
In the eight preceding seasons, the left-handed-hitting Presley accumulated just over fifteen-hundred plate appearances in the majors, slashing a composite .263/.306/.388. He carried a 106 wRC+ output in 71 games last year with the Tigers.
