Alex Presley designated for assignment to make room for Scott Feldman


The Astros designated the veteran outfielder Alex Presley, adding Scott Feldman to start today. Presley appeared in eight games with the Astros as they were dealing with injuries to Jake Marisnick, Colby Rasmus, and George Springer. Presley has already been designated once this season. The Astros will likely keep Presley as he signed a $ 1 million dollar contract this offseason. A team is not likely take a flyer at that price and Presley won't elect to take the free agency route to loss that contract.
