Infielder Jake Elmore was recalled from Triple-A Durham to take his roster spot. "[Elmore] provides a ton of versatility," Cash said, per MLB.com. "He's played well down there. He's been having really good at-bats. It was nice to see him during Spring Training. He was the guy that we carried on every single trip simply because if he wasn't starting, he covered us at any position -- and that's a luxury to have in the dugout."
