News: Hague was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo on Tuesday, Sportsnet's Ben Nicholson-Smith reports.
Impact: Already 29 years old, Hague has just 76 big-league plate appearances to his name. He's been a strong hitter at the Triple-A level for the past few years, but he hasn't provided the kind of top-notch numbers that teams would like to see from a player with limited defensive skills. Hague will need a couple of injuries in front of him on the big-league club in order to get a shot this season.
