Hagens and the Diamondbacks agreed to a minor-league contract with an invitation to spring training, Baseball America reports. Hagens has 2.2 innings of major-league experience, as the former sixth-rounder was a September callup with the Diamondbacks in 2014. He had a fantastic 2016 season in Japan, where he allowed only four home runs in 83.1 innings pitched, and had a 2.92 ERA and a 1.25 WHIP. The 28-year-old's last action in America came in 2015, when he threw a 2.67 ERA in 70.2 innings with Triple-A Durham. He will have to show his strong 2015 and 2016 seasons can translate to major-league production if he wants to win a roster spot as a part of Arizona's bullpen.
The Rays acquired right-hander Bradin Hagens from the Diamondbacks in exchange for cash considerations, according to the Tampa Bay Times. Hagens pitched only one inning this spring. He will report to Triple-A Durham, according to the Times.
Diamondbacks pitcher Bradin Hagens has been outrighted from the 40-man roster, according to azcentral.com. Hagens posted a 3.95 ERA over two minor-league levels this season. He received a brief stint in the majors, but only pitched 2 2/3 innings.
The Diamondbacks recalled pitcher Will Harris from Triple-A Reno Monday. To clear a roster spot, pitcher Bradin Hagens was optioned to Reno.
The Diamondbacks called up pitcher Bradin Hagens Wednesday and optioned pitcher Andrew Chafin to Triple-A Reno. Hagens has yet to pitch in the majors but owns a 4.12 ERA and 62:54 K:BB ratio in 115 2/3 innings between Double-A and Triple-A, with only five of those innings coming at the higher level. Chafin made the start for the Diamondbacks in Game 2 of Wednesday's doubleheader and will head to the minors to provide the team with extra bullpen help.
