Profile: Drafted by the Brewers in the 22nd round out of Florida Southwest State Junior College, Presley signed with the Brewers and was assigned to Helena in the Pioneer League.  Having worked as both a starter and reliever in college, Presley  worked strictly in a relief role in his first taste of pro ball.  A towering presence at six-foot-seven, Presley is a good athlete with a high 3/4 delivery.  While his fastball is average presently, he has room to add muscle to his frame and could see an uptick in velocity as he fills out.  He also flashes the making of a solid changeup and occasionally shows a good feel for a breaking pitch as well.

2017:  The Brewers opted to have Presley skip past Maryvale and head to Helena to get his pro career started in the Pioneer League.  He worked in 11 games, all in relief, and went 0-1 with a 3.43 earned run average, striking out 23 and converting on his lone save chance, while holding opposing hitters to a .215 batting average.
