Brewers sign Elmore, Presley and Tillman to minor-league deals
The Brewers have signed infielder Jake Elmore, right-handed pitcher Daniel Tillman and outfielder Alex Presley to minor-league contracts. The trio will also receive major league spring-training invitations.
Two of the three Brewers signees have major-league experience.
Elmore, a first baseman, played 51 games for Tampa Bay in 2015, hitting .206 with two home runs and 16 RBI. The 28-year-old also played five games for Cincinnati in 2014, 52 games for Houston in 2013 and 30 games for Arizona in 2012.
Presley, 30, has had major-league cups of coffee with Pittsburgh (off and on in 2010-13), Minnesota (2013) and Houston (97 total games between 2014 and 2015). Last season, Presley saw action in eight games for the Astros, hitting .250 with 1 RBI in 12 at-bats.
Tillman went 1-4 with a 2.76 ERA last season in the minor leagues, spending most of his time with the Class-A Rancho Cucamonga Quakes.
