RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Known more for his versatility on defense after becoming the first player in Astros history to play all nine positions in a single season, Elmore was limited to 52 games in his super-utility role and did not contribute much offensively. The 26-year-old employs a good approach at the plate, with great discipline (0.65 BB/K ratio) that he backs up with an 83 percent contact rate. Unfortunately, those measures have not translated to big league success, as his .242/.313/.325 line from last season might suggest. Elmore's batting average is likely to improve this season, but don't expect much in the counting stats. He'll look to secure a utility role with the White Sox after being picked up via waivers during the offseason.

2013

A lack of major league ready depth to play shortstop behind Stephen Drew opened the door for Elmore to make his big league debut with the D-Backs last season. In his age-25 season, he hit .345/.445/.469 with 33 steals at Triple-A Reno (a very hitter-friendly environment), but he carried a .497 OPS over 30 big league games and did little to prove that his numbers with Reno were anything more than a mirage. Elmore was claimed off waivers by the Astros in November and will enter the mix for a utility role this spring as a defense-first bench option.
