Over the weekend, the Cubs signed infielder Jake Hager to a minor league contract. Hager made one appearance with their Arizona complex affiliate. His current destination is Triple-A Iowa, based to the transaction log available on MLB.com.

Hager, a right-handed batter, has played in 42 major league games for the Mets and Diamondbacks. In limited play from 2021–22, he hit.197/.307/.224 with 31 strikeouts in 89 plate appearances. Hager was primarily with Arizona in Triple-A last season. After a lackluster season in which he hit.245/.301/.415 in the Pacific Coast League, he was cut loose in August.

Hager entered the 2011 draft as the 32nd overall pick after high school. He has made appearances in five different Triple-A organizations during portions of seven seasons (not including Chicago). There, he has played in slightly over 500 games and has a.242/.301/.389 line. Hager has played shortstop in the minor leagues for the majority of his career, but he also has a lot of experience at second and third base (with sporadic trips to the outfield).

Several weeks ago, Nick Madrigal suffered a broken hand, which cost Chicago some depth in the minor league infield. They don’t have many skilled Triple-A infielders, so Hager fits in well as a depth option.
