Diamondbacks Outright Bradin Hagens

The D’Backs have trimmed their 40-man roster to 39 by outrighting minor league right-hander Bradin Hagens, tweets Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic.

The 25-year-old Hagens made his Major League debut for the Snakes just last week, appearing in two games and allowing a run on four hits and three walks in 2 2/3 innings. He’s split the majority of the season between Double-A Mobile and Triple-A Reno, posting a combined 3.95 ERA with 4.8 K/9 and 4.3 BB/9 in 120 2/3 innings.

Twenty of Hagen’s 26 minor league appearances this year were starts, but he’s no stranger to bullpen work. The 2009 sixth-round pick spent the first two seasons of his pro career as a reliever before converting to the rotation in 2011. He split the 2012 season between the ‘pen and the rotation before returning to the rotation full time in 2013, and he’s been starting in the minors since early May this year.
