The Milwaukee Brewers claimed infielder Jake Hager off waivers from the New York Mets on Tuesday and assigned him to Triple-A Nashville.

Hager, who played his first five major league games earlier this season, was designated for assignment by the Mets on Saturday. He was 1-for-8 this season with three strikeouts.

The 28-year-old was a former first-round draft pick by the Tampa Bay Rays. He played 10 seasons in the minors and waited out a 2020 season with no minor league games before getting his first call to the big leagues.

The Brewers just designated second baseman Jace Peterson for assignment and recalled Keston Hiura from Triple-A Nashville.

Hager will initially be assigned to Triple-A. He previously spent time in the Milwaukee organization in 2018 and 2019, playing at Double-A and Triple-A.
