Athletics Designate Jake Elmore For Assignment

The Athletics designated Jake Elmore for assignment earlier today, as Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reported on Twitter. Elmore, a 27-year-old utilityman, was picked up in a minor trade over the offseason.

Elmore did not crack the Oakland roster this season, but does have 209 MLB plate appearances under his belt. In 211 plate appearances at Triple-A, he owns a .282/.374/.365 line. Though he doesn’t offer much pop, and has yet to hit a long ball in 2014, Elmore has contributed nine stolen bases.

Seems to be a good OBP guy, Mets like that. Maybe sign him to be backup SS so Flores can play everyday at AAA. He can’t be worse than Q.

I could see the Pirates or the Giants taking a flier on him or even the Mariners because he hit lefties well in 2013 and had good away numbers so that could trend in his direction if he were put into a platoon.

And this is what the Giants most likely get.
