Catching up on some minor moves from around baseball….
- The Pirates officially announced that utilityman Jake Elmore has been re-signed to a minor league contract and has received an invitation to the team’s big league Spring Training camp. (Multiple reports initially had word on this deal between Elmore and the Bucs last month.) Elmore appeared in 20 games with Pittsburgh last season, marking his first MLB action since the 2016 season played in 59 games for Milwaukee. Elmore’s career Major League resume consists of 217 games spread over six different seasons with six different teams, and the 32-year-old has a career .215/.292/.275 slash line. Versatility has been a much bigger part of Elmore’s game than his bat, as he has appeared in at least one game at all ten positions during his career, with the majority of his playing time coming at shortstop, left field, first base, and second base.
