RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
2017
2016
2015
2014
2013
  1. Jake Elmore 2017 Preseason Outlook
    Elmore has made at least five major league appearances in each of the past five seasons, and every year has been with a different club. That trend will have a chance to continue, as his one-year run with the Brewers came to an end after an uninspiring season. The 29-year-old actually showed real promise in the minor league portion of his season, hitting .320 with more walks (26) than strikeouts (19) in 57 games, but he struggled mightily in the majors to the tune of a .218 average and just two extra-base hits in 59 games. The outfielder still has decent speed and has always had a terrific eye at the plate, so he could get a look as a fourth outfield option. However, his at-bats will likely be limited after signing with the Blue Jays, as Elmore has never had an OPS above .638 or average higher than .242 in the majors.
  2. Jake Elmore 2016 Preseason Outlook
    Elmore continued his life as an MLB journeyman by electing free agency after the 2015 season, leaving his fourth team in four years and joining the Brewers on a minor league deal that includes an invite to spring training in 2016. The 28-year-old did see a career high in plate appearances last year with Tampa Bay thanks to a glut of infield injuries, but he did little with them, hitting .206/.263/.284 with two home runs. His defensive versatility is likely what appealed to the Brewers, considering he appeared at all four infield positions, left field, and pitcher in 2015. In fact, he was actually the Rays’ starting first baseman for a short, incredible period of time thanks to a James Loney finger injury. With a career .516 OPS, Elmore is unlikely to be very useful in fantasy, even if he finds his way to some big league playing time in Milwaukee.
  3. Jake Elmore 2015 Preseason Outlook
    In one calendar year, Elmore has been a member of the Astros, White Sox, A's, Reds and now the Pirates, who claimed him when the Reds tried to pass him through waivers in November. Elmore has a good eye, but nothing happens when he makes contact, raising the question whether he'd be able to draw many walks at the big league level once opposing pitchers realize he can't hurt them when they throw strikes. His complete lack of power likely precludes him from getting a shot at a long-term role.
  4. Jake Elmore 2014 Preseason Outlook
    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.
  5. Jake Elmore 2013 Preseason Outlook
    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.
