Presley has seen plenty of playing time as of late, adding some speed to Detroit’s lineup. He’s hitting .299 with a .365 on-base percentage, a .418 slugging percentage and a .341 wOBA in 75 plate appearances.
The ex-Pirate also sports a 113 wRC+, a 1.2 BsR and a 0.1 WAR.
Meanwhile, Adduci returns from the minors where he was since returning from the disabled list earlier in the season.
The veteran turned in a 0.7 WAR, a 10.2 walk percentage, eight runs scored, seven RBI, four doubles, two triples, a stolen base and a 138 wRC+ in 49 plate appearances.
The combination of the two should provide the Detroit Tigers with some solid production until Christin Stewart is ready for a starting role.
Stewart may not reach the Majors in 2017, but 2018 looks a whole lot more likely.
Either way, moving Martinez clears the way for the slugging prospect to take over in right field long-term. Maybe even as early as next Spring Training.
