Jean Segura indications two-year handle NL East competing initially appeared on NBC Sports Philadelphia
For any Phillies fans who were unfortunate about not seeing Jean Segura’s smile around Citizens Bank Park next season, I have excellent news and I have problem.
The previous Phils 2nd baseman tattooed a two-year, $17 million handle the Miami Marlins according to MLB expert Hector Gomez:
Segura, who turns 33 prior to next season starts, came by from the Mariners in 2019 in exchange for J.P. Crawford and Carlos Santana. He invested 4 years with the Phillies, striking .281 with a .755 OPS throughout 427 video games. He struck 43 crowning achievement, drove in 176 RBI, and scored 228 runs as a member of the Fightins while offering elite defense. Fangraphs ranked Segura 2nd amongst all shortstops in 2019 and 2nd amongst all 2nd basemen in 2021.
Segura was likewise a fan preferred throughout his time in Philadelphia thanks both to his affable character and his propensity for showing up huge in the clutch. When the Phillies reached the postseason for the very first time in over a years this previous season, and the very first time in Segura’s profession, he was the one who knocked a bases-loaded dribbler to ideal field in the top of the ninth in Game 1 of the Wild Card series versus the Cardinals. Without that struck, it’s possible the Phillies’ wonderful 2022 run never ever occurs.
But the bell tolled for Segura’s time in Philadelphia’s middle infield with the introduction of Bryson Stott this previous season and the addition of super star shortstop Trea Turner. Stott will change Segura at 2nd base in 2023.
It’ll be intriguing to see how the Marlins usage Segura. One of the company’s most amazing young gamers currently patrols 2nd baseman in All-Star Jazz Chisholm, so it’s most likely Segura is the Marlins’ response at shortstop after a frustrating season from Miguel Rojas. Segura would represent an upgrade at the position and would develop a strong middle infield in Miami.
If you’re a Phillies fan excited to serenade Segura for his 4 years in Philly, you will not need to wait long: the Marlins pertained to town April 10, 11, and 12 for the 2nd house series of the season – and the very first Dollar Dog Night of the 2023 slate.
