Elmore was having a good year at Triple-A with a .320/.428/.380 slash line in 57 games with two homers, 19 RBI, 25 runs, and 13 steals. Alex Presley was DFA'd to make room for the career .215 MLB hitter on the 40-man roster. He should function as a multi-positional outfielder on the Brewers bench for the time being.
McRae was signed to a 10-day contract in February and was then signed to a two-year deal based off his performances on the original deal. The option is guaranteed for just under $1 million which is great savings for the Cavs to fill out any remaining roster spots with all of the inflated prices that will be out there this offseason with the new money coming in. McRae still needs a lot of development but he showed flashes of his ability towards the end of the season with 36 points.
He had been out of the lineup for the last few games as he dealt with a wrist issue however that seems to be behind him now. He will play in center field and bat fourth for the Marlins on Tuesday as they open an inter-league series in Detroit.
