Presley begins rehab assignment in Indy
MILWAUKEE -- Outfielder Alex Presley, on track to return Tuesday from the disabled list, went 2-for-4 at Triple-A Indianapolis while leading off and playing left field. He also walked and scored a run. Presley incurred a concussion earlier this month and missed his seventh game Sunday.

"Everything went well; he'll be back out there today," Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said.

Presley incurred the concussion on July 3 when he dove for a ball in the outfield against Houston. He stayed in the game for two at-bats before being lifted with concussion-like symptoms.

Presley scored his run Saturday in the sixth during the 12-9 win over Columbus on Starling Marte's 10th home run of the year. Marte is hitting .286 with 55 RBIs in 88 games for the Indians.
