Brewers | Jean Segura flying under the radar

Milwaukee Brewers SS Jean Segura has flown under the radar as one of the league's best shortstops, but he has a slash line of .356/.397/.493 in April and is one of the faster men in the bigs. He also hit .313 with a .367 on-base percentage in the minors and won a batting title in the Dominican Winter League. "He's really been under the radar," general manager Doug Melvin said. "I don't think he's ever listed in the top-25 prospects. But he's 22, going on 23, and he's really opened our eyes. I see people talk about the (Jurickson) Profars and even the Dee Gordons. But they never talk about him. He's an exciting player."

Fantasy Tip: Segura has flown under the fantasy baseball radar as well, but he won't for much longer. If he's still floating around on your deep-mixed waiver wire, don't wait around for this stolen base aid and batting average helper.
