Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - The Pittsburgh Pirates recalled infielder Brandon Inge from Triple-A Indianapolis Tuesday and reinstated him from the 15-day disabled list.

Inge is slated to start at third base for the Pirates on Tuesday against the Phillies despite going 9-for-60 with two home runs and six RBI in 18 games during his rehab assignment with Indianapolis as he recovered from an injured right scapula.

To make room for Inge on the roster, Pittsburgh optioned outfielder Alex Presley to Indianapolis.

Presley has managed just one hit through five games with the Pirates this season.
