MLB Rumors: Jean Segura trade to Phillies likely coming soon

Manny Machado Phillies, Mariners Nearing Deal Centered Around Jean Segura
Rita Gibson | 07 December, 2018, 19:27

The Phillies traded Santana and shortstop J.P. Crawford to the Mariners on Monday for shortstop Jean Segura, right-handed reliever Juan Nicasio and left-handed reliever James Pazos.

The Mariners' next trade after completing a huge seven-player swap with the New York Mets is another blockbuster with a National League East team.

Segura, 28, slashed.304/.341/.415 with 91 runs, 29 doubles, and 20 stolen bases over 632 plate appearances for the Mariners in 2018.

With all due respect to J.P. Crawford since the potential always seemed to be there, the addition of Segura would clearly be an upgrade at the position. He mostly plays short, the position Machado has said he'd like to stay at, but just two season ago - one in which Segura hit a career-high.319 and finished 13 in the NL MVP voting with the Diamondbacks - he appeared at second base in 141 games. Crawford, on the other hand, had a fielding percentage of.933 in limited action at shortstop, while Kingery posted a solid fielding percentage of.975.

Crawford, 23, was the Phillies' first-round pick in 2013.

Last year around this time, the Phillies signed the veteran slugger to a three-year, $60 million deal to provide some offensive firepower in the batting order. Victor of the American League Final Vote a year ago, Segura hit a three-run, pinch-hit, go-ahead home run off Milwaukee Brewers reliever Josh Hader in the eighth inning of the All-Star Game at Nationals Park.

He also drew 110 walks in 560 at-bats, which was the second-best mark of his career.

The Seattle Mariners have been a busy team this off-season. His contract has a club option for the 2021 season worth $17.5 million with a $500,000 buyout.
