D-backs select the contract of Hagens from Triple-A Reno, option Chafin to Reno


PHOENIX - The Arizona Diamondbacks (@Dbacks) selected the contract of right-handed pitcher Bradin Hagens (@Bradin_Hagens16) from Triple-A Reno, as announced by D-backs' Executive Vice President & General Manager Kevin Towers. Hagens takes the roster spot of left-handed pitcher Andrew Chafin, who was optioned to Reno following the second game of last night's doubleheader in Cleveland.

Hagens will wear No. 60 in his Major League debut.

Hagens, 25, combined to go 8-7 with a 4.12 ERA (53 ER in 115.2 IP) in 25 games (19 starts) between Double-A Mobile and Reno this season. He was named the Organizational Player of the Month for May after going 3-0 with a 2.48 ERA (8 ER in 29.0 IP) in 5 starts, and has allowed 3 earned runs or less in 14 of his 19 outing overall.

Over 6 Minor League seasons, Hagens has gone 34-33 with a 4.14 ERA (266 ER in 578.2 IP) in 166 games (82 starts). The 2013 Southern League midseason All-Star was drafted by the D-backs in the sixth round of the 2009 First-Year Player Draft from Merced College.

Chafin, 24, made his Major League debut in the second game of a doubleheader last night @ Indians, becoming the third rookie starter in club history to throw 5.0-plus scoreless innings (3 hits) in his first game (also: Micah Owings on April 6, 2007 vs. Nationals and Jarrod Parker on Sept. 27, 2011 vs. Dodgers).

Chafin was 8-6 with a 3.96 ERA (58 ER in 131.2 IP) in 23 starts between Double-A Mobile and Reno this season.

The D-backs' 40-man roster is now at 39.
