Rays Sign Jake Elmore
The Rays added another player to their camp roster on Monday, inking utilityman Jake Elmore to a minor-league deal.
Elmore is a little lad with a short swing and patient approach at the plate, leading to plenty of contact and walks. He won’t hit for much power, nor will he show top-end speed on the basepaths. What Elmore does offer is experience across the diamond; during the 2013 season he appeared at every position with the Astros, including pitcher and catcher, and he could conceivably spend time in the majors as a super-sub type.
The Rays are the sixth organization Elmore has spent time with since the end of the 2013 season.
