Elmore claimed by Pirates
The Jake Elmore era was brief for the Reds. Elmore, who was part of some procedural moves this week that outrighted off the Reds 40-man roster only to be put back on, was claimed off of waivers on Friday by the Pirates.
It puts the Reds’ 40-man roster at 38 players for the moment.
A September call-up, Elmore was 2-for-11 in five games for the Reds. He spent most of the year at Triple-A, batting a combined .281 (75-for-267) at Louisville and Sacramento.
The Reds had claimed the 27-year-old off of waivers from the A’s on Aug. 2.
