The Miami Marlins have actually reached a contract with veteran infielder Jean Segura, according to the Miami Herald. The offer can be found in at 2 years and $17 million.

Segura, 32, invested the previous 4 seasons betting the Marlins as a member of the Philadelphia Phillies. He batted .281/.337/.418 (102 OPS+) throughout that period, balancing 11 crowning achievement and 8 taken bases per season. Those abovementioned marks resemble his profession varieties of .285/.330/.408 (100 OPS+) that he’s collected over 11 big-league seasons.

Segura went into the offseason ranked by CBS Sports as the 24th finest complimentary representative readily available on the free market. Here’s what we composed at the time:

In addition to being a great fielding 2nd baseman, Segura has actually been a league-average or much better player in 6 of his last 7 seasons thanks to his feel for contact. He strolls and bops simply enough to keep him from having an empty line. Unfortunately, Segura is likewise a great bet to get in touch with the hurt list: he’s appeared in more than 150 video games simply as soon as in his profession, and he’s missed out on 95 video games integrated the last 2 seasons. This might show to be an overrank if his toughness slides even more. 

The Marlins, who have actually been looking for offending upgrades all winter season, might slot Segura in at either 2nd or 3rd base, depending upon what they plan to do with Jazz Chisholm Jr. and Joey Wendle (both left-handed players). Despite Miami’s abovementioned desire to enhance their lineup, Segura marks the very first addition they have actually made on that side of the ball all winter season long.

The Marlins had actually formerly made a couple of additions to their pitching personnel, getting right-handed reducer J.T. Chargois from the Tampa Bay Rays and choosing fellow righty Nic Enright from the Cleveland Guardians as part of the Rule 5 Draft.
