The Pittsburgh Pirates have acquired INF/OF Jake Elmore in a trade with the Chicago White Sox on Thursday. Elmore was briefly with the Pirates during the 2014-15 off-season when they picked him up off waivers from the Cincinnati Reds. He has been assigned to Indianapolis.
Elmore has played parts of five seasons in the majors, appearing with a different team each year from 2012 to 2016. The 31-year-old has a .215/.297/.280 slash line in 197 games. He spent the 2018 season in Triple-A for the White Sox, where he posted a .756 OPS over 101 games. Elmore went 2-for-7 with a walk, in seven games this Spring Training. He has appeared at every position in both the majors and minors, with his primary spot being second base.
