GLENDALE, Ariz. – It didn’t take long for former Chicago White Sox infielder Jake Elmore to land a new home as he was traded to the Oakland Athletics for cash considerations on Thursday.

Elmore was designated for assignment Wednesday to make room on the 40-man roster for pitcher Maikel Cleto, who was claimed off waivers from the Kansas City Royals.

The White Sox claimed Elmore off waivers from the Houston Astros this winter. He played in 52 major league games last year and ended up playing all nine positions.
