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.

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.

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.

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.

Astros recalled INF Jacob Elmore from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Elmore will replace Marwin Gonzalez on the active roster. The 26-year-old appeared in three games with the Astros earlier this season and was batting .300/.383/.434 with five home runs and 16 stolen bases in 69 games in Triple-A. With experience between second base, shortstop, and third base, he figures to serve in a utility role.

Jake Elmore is expected to be recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Tuesday.

The move isn't official, but he'll take the roster spot of Marwin Gonzalez, who was demoted on Monday. Elmore has appeared in three games with the Astros this season and is hitting .300/.383/.434 with five home runs and 16 stolen bases in 69 games in Triple-A.

Astros recalled INF Jacob Elmore from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

He'll take the roster spot of Jose Altuve, who was placed on the bereavement list following the death of his grandmother. Elmore, 25, was batting .300/.381/.457 with two home runs, 15 RBI, eight stolen bases, and an .838 OPS in 36 games at Triple-A this season. Ronny Cedeno and Marwin Gonzalez figure to see most of the playing time in the middle infield until Altuve is ready to rejoin the team.

Astros optioned INF Jacob Elmore to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Elmore was bothered by an oblique injury and hit just .226/.273/.290 this spring to seal his demotion. He should be up with the club at some point this season.

Jacob Elmore is nursing a strained left oblique.

The Astros are calling him day-to-day, but with an oblique there's always a chance it will be a while. Elmore is competing for a bench role this spring and could wind up with a decent amount of playing time at shortstop.

Astros claimed INF Jacob Elmore off waivers from the Diamondbacks.

Elmore failed to hit in his short stint with the D'Backs this season, but he batted .344/.442/.465 with 32 steals at Triple-A. He should have a good shot at sticking on the Astros' Opening Day roster.
Thu, Nov 1, 2012 08:42:00 PM

Diamondbacks purchased the contract of 2B Jacob Elmore from Triple-A Reno.

Elmore was dominating in the minors (.908 OPS), so it's a deserving promoting. A former 34th round pick, he wasn't listed among the organization's top 30 prospects.
