Arizona Diamondbacks Re-Sign Utility Infielder

Bringing him back.

The Arizona Diamondbacks have signed infielder Jake Hager to a minor-league contract with an invite to spring training.

Hager returns to the Diamondbacks after playing 28 games with the big-league club last year, slashing .240/.345/.280, with three RBIs and four runs scored.

The twenty-nine-year-old will serve as organizational depth and as a temporary fill-in option at the major-league level.

For his major-league career, spanning 42 games, Hager holds a .197/.307/.224 triple-slash line, with five RBIs and six runs scored. He's spent time with the New York Mets and the D-Backs.

Hager is a former first-round pick by the Tampa Bay Rays in the 2011 MLB Draft.

What he lacks offensively, Hager makes up for with his defense and defensive versatility.
