Anyhow, in his fifth at-bat, Presley worked the count to 3-2, then fouled off a bunch of pitches. After swinging at the tenth pitch of the at-bat, he immediately grabbed his side or lower back, and was removed from the game. L.J. Hoes continued the at-bat, and Presley was placed on the DL.
Replacing him will be the 24 year-old
He is still only 24, so his career trajectory is far from defined. This represents another opportunity for him, and simple bad-luck for Alex. Not sure how much playing time
Note is made that the Astros have been fairly charmed with injuries this year at the Major League level. This is perhaps expected from a young team.
