Hager was optioned to Triple-A Reno on Monday. Hager saw minimal playing time during his stint with the major-league club, as he went 0-for-2 with an RBI, a walk and a strikeout across three appearances following his call-up Aug. 12. He should see more consistent at-bats in the minors and will be in the mix to rejoin the Diamondbacks if they need utility depth at some point.
Hager was recalled by the Diamondbacks from Triple-A Reno on Thursday. Hager was in the majors for the first week of August, but he was optioned when Josh Rojas was activated from the injured list. He's now back with the club due to Kole Calhoun (hamstring) being sidelined. Hager has been with four organizations this season and has managed a .791 OPS across 235 plate appearances at Triple-A, and he has three hits in 27 plate appearances in the big leagues.
The Diamondbacks optioned Hager to Triple-A Reno on Monday, Zach Buchanan of The Athletic reports. Hager's demotion seemingly foreshadows the return of Josh Rojas (finger), who is expected to be activated from the 10-day injured list ahead of Tuesday's game in San Francisco. The Diamondbacks had been using Hager in the short side of a platoon at second base with Josh VanMeter, but Rojas should take over full-time duties at that position upon being activated. Hager went 2-for-16 over his six-game stint with the big club.
Hager will start at second base and bat sixth Sunday versus the Dodgers. Hager was claimed off waivers by Arizona on Friday and seemed likely to head to Triple-A Reno, but he's instead with the big-league club. The 28-year-old appeared in five games earlier in the year for the Mets and went 1-for-8 with a run and three strikeouts.
Hager was claimed off waivers by the Diamondbacks on Friday, Zach Buchanan of The Athletic reports.
