GLENDALE, Ariz. — The White Sox traded utility man Jake Elmore to the Oakland A’s on Thursday for cash considerations.
He wasn’t their big league hitting coach, but Todd Steverson had a critical role with the Oakland A’s before the White Sox hired him last month.
The Cubs had been rumored to be in the market for a backup catcher to current starter Welington Castillo. Now they have one.
ORLANDO, Fla. – The Cubs don’t plan to make a huge investment in a free-agent catcher like Brian McCann or Jarrod Saltalamacchia.
