The Diamondbacks announced Saturday that Hager was re-signed on a minor-league deal that includes an invitation to MLB spring training.
Hager concluded the 2022 season as a member of Arizona's 40-man roster and 28-man active roster before being outrighted to Triple-A Reno in early November. Rather than electing free agency and trying his luck elsewhere, the 29-year-old will stick in Arizona's organization and compete for a utility role in spring training.

Hager is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Cubs.
Hager went a collective 1-for-9 with two walks and an RBI while starting each of the past three games at second base, but he looks set to move into a full-time reserve role moving forward after Ketel Marte (hand) was cleared to return to the lineup Thursday. Once outfielder/designated hitter Cooper Hummel (illness) is activated from the COVID-19 injured list, Hager is expected to be returned to Triple-A Reno.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Jake Hager: Filling in for Marte
Hager started at second base and went 1-for-2 with a walk in Wednesday's 5-3 loss to the Dodgers.
Hager's getting steady work since being called up earlier this week. He appeared in both ends of Tuesday's doubleheader, giving second baseman Ketel Marte a breather in the first game, then filling in again at second in the nightcap after Marte sustained a hand injury while pinch hitting during Game 1. Marte was unavailable once again Wednesday but said the hand is feeling better, and he could be ready to go Thursday against the Cubs. Hager may stick around for now while the Diamondbacks deal with a mini-outbreak of COVID.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Jake Hager: Called up, starts Game 1 on Tuesday
The Diamondbacks selected Hager's contract from Triple-A Reno ahead of Tuesday's doubleheader with the Dodgers in Los Angeles. He'll start at second base in Game 1, batting ninth.
Though he'll get the nod at the keystone in the first game of the twin bill while Ketel Marte rests, Hager has professional experience at every position except catcher and pitcher. He'll thus offer the Diamondbacks some versatility off the bench, but it's unclear if he'll stick with the big club beyond the doubleheader.... See More ... See Less

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.
