Elmore signed a minor-league contract with Cleveland on Friday and will join the team's 60-man player pool.
Elmore was released by the Pirates in mid-June but didn't have to wait long before finding a new deal. The 33-year-old is unlikely to play a significant role in Cleveland this season, as he owns a career .215/.292/.275 slash line in 217 major-league games.... See More ... See Less

Elmore was designated for assignment by the Pirates on Sunday, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

Pirates' Jake Elmore: Promoted to big leagues
Elmore had his contract selected from Triple-A Indianapolis on Monday, John Perrotto of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.
Elmore has been tearing the cover off the ball at Triple-A, slashing .380/.444/.546 with two homers and 16 RBI over 31 games, so he'll get a chance in the major leagues. The Pirates shifted Jameson Taillon to the 60-day injured list and moved Jung Ho Kang (side) to the 10-day injured list to make room for Elmore.... See More ... See Less

Elmore re-signed with the White Sox last week on a minor-league contract, Matt Eddy of Baseball America reports.
Elmore spent the 2018 season in the White Sox organization, playing exclusively at Triple-A Charlotte and submitting a .289/.397/.359 slash line across 394 plate appearances.

The White Sox reassigned Elmore to minor-league camp Friday.

White Sox's Jake Elmore: Signs minor-league contract with White Sox
Elmore agreed to a minor-league deal with the White Sox which includes an invitation to spring training, MLB.com's Scott Merkin reports.
Elmore spent the entire 2017 campaign at the Triple-A level, compiling a .236 batting average with one home run, 41 RBI and 12 stolen bases in 110 games split between New Orleans and Buffalo. The 30-year-old most recently played in the big leagues with Milwaukee in 2016, earning 78 at-bats, but slashed just .218/.371/.244 during 59 contests. He will add some extra organizational depth to the White Sox's infield moving forward.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Jake Elmore: Putting game together at Triple-A
Elmore, who came over to Toronto in the offseason, is finally beginning to find a groove at Triple-A Buffalo, Matt Schneidman of The Buffalo News reports.
Elmore, who's played in 197 MLB games, has spent the large majority of his 10-plus professional seasons in the minors. An infielder drafted by Arizona in 2008, the 30-year-old has had success at the lower levels, but Elmore's game never translated to the big leagues. He entered spring training as a legitimate contender for an Opening Day utility gig, but at this point, Elmore stands little chance of donning a Jays uniform this season.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Jake Elmore: Contending for roster spot
Elmore, a non-roster invitee, is a legitimate contender for an Opening Day roster spot, Corey Long of MLB.com reports.
Elmore's ability to play several different positions has been attractive to the Blue Jays' coaching staff this spring. Manager John Gibbons said there's a lot of value in players like Elmore, who can sit for extended periods and be ready to fill holes in the lineup on short notice. Over his five MLB seasons, Elmore has played all nine defensive positions and logged at-bats from every spot in the order. The versatile 29-year-old has tallied 257 plate appearances over his last two campaigns with Tampa and Milwaukee, but his offensive numbers are brutal. If added to the 25-man roster, Elmore will be a defensive choice and therefore lack fantasy value -- regardless of format.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Jake Elmore: Signs minors deal with Blue Jays
Elmore signed a minor league contract with the Blue Jays that includes an invite to spring training, Toronto radio play-by-play broadaster Mike Wilner reports.
Elmore hit .218 in 78 big-league at-bats last year and has bounced between Triple-A and the majors over the last four seasons. If he sticks with the Jays, he'll likely take on a similar role as organizational depth around the infield and outfield.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Jake Elmore: Outrighted to Triple-A
Elmore was outrighted to Triple-A Colorado Springs on Friday.
The Brewers' 40-man roster now stands at 37 after several players were bumped Friday, including Elmore. He got on base at a strong .371 clip in 59 games with Milwaukee in 2016 and is a versatile defender, but Elmore turns 30 next year and seems destined to play out his career as organizational depth....

Brewers' Jake Elmore: Unable to produce offensively
Elmore is hitting just .178 on the year with three RBI over 60 plate appearances.
He has been unable to have consistent success as he only has one hit in his last 15 at-bats. He'll continue to find limited playing time as he serves as a backup to Ryan Braun.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Jake Elmore: Gets called up
Elmore's contract was selected from Triple-A Colorado Springs on Tuesday.
Elmore will make his fifth trip back to the majors now -- each with a different team -- as Alex Presley gets designated for assignment. The 29-year-old has been an on-base machine this season with Milwaukee's Triple-A affiliate, posting a .320 BA and .428 OBP through 57 games. His production in the minors has yet to translate against better competition, however, as he sports a career .215 average in the majors. The first basemen now has another opportunity to prove that he can compete at the highest level.... See More ... See Less
