Pirates' Jake Elmore: Outrighted to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elmore was outrighted to Triple-A Indianapolis on Friday.

The Pirates will clear space on the 40-man roster by sending Elmore to Triple-A. He hit .213 with four RBI over 20 games in the big leagues last season.

Pirates' Jake Elmore: Promoted to big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elmore had his contract selected from Triple-A Indianapolis prior to Tuesday's game against the Mariners, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.

Elmore slashed .322/.387/.455 with six homers, 35 RBI and three stolen bases over 109 games at Triple-A, and he'll now have a chance to finish off the 2019 campaign in the big leagues, likely in a bench role.

Pirates' Jake Elmore: Clears waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elmore cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Indianapolis on Wednesday.

Elmore went 1-for-20 during his brief stay in Pittsburgh. He'll remain as organizational depth but does not appear to be close to a return to the big leagues.

Pirates' Jake Elmore: DFA'd by Pittsburgh
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Elmore was promoted almost two weeks ago but struggled mightily during his brief time in the majors, going 1-for-20 in 11 games. The 31-year-old could make his way back to Triple-A Indianapolis if he clears waivers.

Pirates' Jake Elmore: Promoted to big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

White Sox's Jake Elmore: Sticks with White Sox on MiLB deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 utility man hasn't surfaced in the big leagues since 2016 and will face an uphill battle to appear for the White Sox at any point in 2019 while he remains off the 40-man roster.

White Sox's Jake Elmore: Heads to minor-league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Elmore signed a minor-league contract with an invite to spring training in February and saw only nine official at-bats. The 30-year-old seems likely to start the season with Triple-A Charlotte as organizational infield depth, assuming he remains with the White Sox.

White Sox's Jake Elmore: Signs minor-league contract with White Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Blue Jays' Jake Elmore: Putting game together at Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Blue Jays' Jake Elmore: Contending for roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Blue Jays' Jake Elmore: Signs minors deal with Blue Jays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Brewers' Jake Elmore: Outrighted to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Brewers' Jake Elmore: Gets called up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Brewers' Jake Elmore: Pinch hits Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elmore pinch hit in Tuesday's game and ultimately went 0-for-1 against Cincinnati.

The 28-year-old second baseman has struggled throughout most of this year's spring training and is batting just .240 in his 30 plate appearances. Elmore is unlikely to see much time at the big-league level this coming season, as he's currently behind Scooter Gennett, Colin Walsh, Aaron Hill and Yadiel Rivera on the depth chart.

Brewers' Jake Elmore: Signs a minor league contract with Brewers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elmore agreed to a minor league contract with the Brewers on Monday that included an invite to spring training.

Elmore has bounced around the league, playing with five different organizations since 2012. His most recent stop was with Tampa Bay, where he played 51 games in the majors but only mustered a .206/.263/.284 slash line. Elmore can play all around the infield and even played some outfield last season, which could help him garner some value in a rebuilding Brewers organization.

Jake Elmore: Elects free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elmore elected free agency after being outrighted off the 40-man roster Friday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Elmore struggled mightily in the majors this season, slashing .206/.263/.284 and wasn't much better with Triple-A Durham, as he hit just .247 in 57 games at the level. The 28-year-old has never enjoyed much success at the big league level, but he'll look to find a spot where he can compete for an Opening Day roster spot out of spring training.

Rays activate Asdrubal Cabrera; option Jake Elmore
by Sean D'Oliveira | CBS Sports Staff

The Rays activated shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera after Monday's win over the Tigers, reports the Tampa Bay Times. Cabrera has been out since July 11 with a hamstring injury.

To make room for Cabrera, the team optioned first baseman Jake Elmore to Triple-A. Prior to Monday's game, Elmore was hitting .206 with two home runs and 16 RBI in 141 at-bats.

Rays to use Beckham, Elmore at shortstop with Cabrera sidelined
by Michael Hurcomb | CBS Sports Staff

With Rays starting shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera on the disabled list due to a hamstring injury, manager Kevin Cash said Tim Beckham and Jake Elmore will split time at shortstop, according to the Tampa Bay Times

"There won't be a constant," Cash said. "We'll try to find what we view as the better matchup for each guy. They both do a lot of things well.

"You look at Beck, he has the ability to hit the ball out of the ballpark and play good defense at short. You look at Jake as having the ability to be as consistent probably as anybody and be able to manufacture some things with a bunt, hit-and-run, stuff like that.

"We're going to miss Cabby while he's down, but we like the two options going forward."

Jake Elmore hits go-ahead homer for Rays
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Rays first baseman Jake Elmore broke a scoreless tie with a two-run home run in the fifth inning of Saturday's win over Boston. 

Elmore hit his second homer of the year and first since April 22, his first Rays gave of the season. 

"He seems to get some really big hits at important times," Rays manager Kevin Cash said, per MLB.com.

Elmore went 1 for 3 and reached 15 RBI on the season. 

"You know what? When I hit it, I didn't even think home run," Elmore said. "I just thought, 'Please stay fair,' because I knew it was at least getting down. Then I was like, 'Oh, man, that might get out of here.' ... I was just worried about it staying fair."
