Reds re-signed UTIL Jake Elmore.

Elmore became a free agent after being outrighted to Triple-A Louisville earlier this week, but now he's back on the team's 40-man roster. It's an odd series of moves, but the 27-year-old will remain with the organization as depth for now.
Nov 7 - 10:16 AM

Reds sent UTIL Jake Elmore outright to Triple-A Louisville.

Elmore is a .221/.288/.291 hitter in 221 career plate appearances at the major league level. The 27-year-old utilityman is no longer on the Reds' 40-man roster.
Nov 3 - 10:13 PM

Reds recalled INF/OF Jake Elmore from Triple-A Louisville.

Elmore was claimed off waivers from the Athletics last month. The 27-year-old will give the Reds some bench depth down the stretch.
Sep 2 - 10:34 AM

Reds claimed INF/OF Jake Elmore off of waivers from the Athletics.

The 27-year-old utility man has spent the entire season at Triple-A Sacramento, where he has slashed .282/.374/.365 with 18 RBI and nine stolen bases. He'll provide organizational depth in Cincinnati.
Aug 2 - 3:08 PM

Athletics designated INF/OF Jake Elmore for assignment.

It's likely Elmore didn't realize, while looking at the Jon Lester and Jonny Gomes for Yoenis Cespedes trade, that his 40-man spot was needed to accommodate the extra big leaguer. Elmore was claimed off waivers by the White Sox from the Astros over the winter, and then dealt to Oakland for cash, so it's possible a team looking for a young utility player will place a claim.
Jul 31 - 2:01 PM

Athletics activated INF Jake Elmore from the 60-day disabled list; optioned him to Triple-A Sacramento.

Elmore has been on the shelf all season with hamstring and quad injuries. He could eventually be a utility option for the A's if he can stay healthy.
Jun 16 - 7:24 PM

Athletics transferred INF Jake Elmore from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The move clears room on the 40-man roster for Jeff Francis. Elmore remains out indefinitely with hamstring and quad injuries.
May 18 - 4:01 PM

Jake Elmore has returned to the Athletics to be examined after aggravating his left quad strain.

Elmore re-injured himself in his second rehab game. It's not clear at this point how long it will set him back.
May 6 - 6:58 PM

Jake Elmore (hamstring) is nearing a rehab assignment.

Elmore began the season on the disabled list with a hamstring strain. He'll likely be assigned to Triple-A Sacramento once healthy.
Apr 21 - 7:46 PM

Athletics placed INF Jake Elmore on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to March 28, with a hamstring strain.

The A's optioned Elmore to Triple-A Sacramento at the end of camp, but that move has now been voided. He should be recovered within the next two weeks, though he might not join the major league roster immediately.
Apr 3 - 3:00 PM

Athletics option SS Jake Elmore to Triple-A Sacramento.

With Jed Lowrie starting at shortstop and Nick Punto as the veteran backup middle infielder, Elmore didn't have a spot on the A's roster. He batted .314 this spring and will serve as organizational depth for the club.
Mar 29 - 6:24 PM

Athletics acquired INF Jake Elmore from the White Sox for cash considerations.

Elmore was designated for assignment by Chicago on Wednesday. He batted just .242/.313/.325 in 136 plate appearances last season for the Astros and seems unlikely to land a spot on Oakland's Opening Day roster.
Feb 27 - 12:25 PM

White Sox designated INF/OF Jake Elmore for assignment.

The room clears a spot for right-hander Maikel Cleto on the 40-man roster. Elmore was claimed off waivers from the Astros in November after batting .242/.313/.325 with two home runs and six RBI in 136 plate appearances last season and he could soon be on the move once again.
Feb 26 - 3:05 PM

White Sox claimed INF/OF Jake Elmore off waivers from the Astros.

Elmore, 26, hit .242/.313/.325 with two home runs and six RBI in 136 plate appearances this year with the Astros. He could be in the mix for a utility player job with Chicago.
