Jake Elmore has elected free agency.

Elmore was removed from the Pirates' 40-man roster last month and has decided to refuse an outright assignment. The 27-year-old owns a .221/.288/.291 batting line over 221 career plate appearances in the majors.
Feb 2 - 10:17 PM

Pirates sent INF Jake Elmore outright to Triple-A Indianapolis.

He had been designated for assignment but has cleared waivers and will remain in the organization. Elmore owns a .221/.288/.291 batting line over 221 career plate appearances in the majors and is just a depth guy.
Jan 30 - 9:28 AM

Pirates designated UTIL Jake Elmore for assignment.

The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for Jung-ho Kang. Elmore was claimed off waivers from the Reds back in November and now he could potentially be on the move again. Of course, the 27-year-old owns a .221/.288/.291 batting line over 221 career plate appearances in the majors, so there's a chance he could pass through waivers unclaimed.
Jan 20 - 11:47 AM

Pirates claimed UTIL Jake Elmore off waivers from the Reds.

Elmore was outrighted to Triple-A by the Reds earlier this week before being re-added to the 40-man roster, but now he's on the move. The 27-year-old owns a .221/.288/.291 batting line over 221 career plate appearances in the majors, but he could be a bench player for Pittsburgh in 2015.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.
Mon, Jun 16, 2014 07:24:00 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.
Sun, May 18, 2014 04:01:00 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.
Tue, May 6, 2014 06:58:00 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.
Mon, Apr 21, 2014 07:46:00 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.
