Diamondbacks | Jean Segura in offensive decline?

Wed, 03 Feb 2016 11:16:54 -0800

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Jean Segura's .610 OPS since July of 2013 ranks as the lowest in the majors over that time for players with at least 1,100 plate appearances. Segura's nine-month-old son died in July of 2014, and he was also distracted by a contract dispute during his time in Milwaukee. The ascent of SS prospect Orlando Arcia also weighed on Segura, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Perhaps a change of scenery is just what Segura needed. He's Arizona's middle infielder that should see the most playing time -- either at shortstop or second base -- and his fantasy value is boosted slightly likely sitting atop a much more potent offense. His speed is his biggest asset, but he needs to improve his on-base percentage for it to matter.

Diamondbacks | Jean Segura could hit at top of lineup

Mon, 01 Feb 2016 09:16:46 -0800

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Jean Segura could hit at the top of the batting order, according to general manager Dave Stewart. SS Nick Ahmed started 116 games at shortstop for the Diamondbacks last year, but he's known more for his defense and hit just .226.

Fantasy Tip: Segura should be expected to be the new starting shortstop, although Ahmed will spell him at the 6 occasionally. Segura's fantasy value should increase slightly at the top of a more potent lineup, and his stolen base abilities will continue to be his biggest asset.

Brewers | Orlando Arcia to start in minors

Sun, 31 Jan 2016 07:35:33 -0800

Milwaukee Brewers general manager David Stearns said the trade of SS Jean Segura to the Arizona Diamondbacks will have no impact on the timetable of minor league SS Orlando Arcia. He is still expected to begin the 2016 season at Class AAA Colorado Springs.

Fantasy Tip: The 21-year-old Arcia is considered to be one of the top prospects in baseball and he should be monitored in all dynasty and keeper leagues. He batted .307 with 37 doubles, eight home runs, 69 RBIs and 25 stolen bases in 129 games for Class AA Mobile last season. Jonathan Villar appears to be the favorite to serve as the Opening Day shortstop for Milwaukee but he is not a great fantasy option.

Diamondbacks | Jean Segura to compete

Sat, 30 Jan 2016 16:49:26 -0800

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Jean Segura will compete for a starting spot at shortstop and second base, according to general manager Dave Stewart. Segura will see the majority of his time at shortstop in spring training.

Fantasy Tip: Segura had 25 steals last season and could expand upon that with a little more power in Arizona if he lands a starting gig. He's a midrange SS option in fantasy.

Diamondbacks | Jean Segura headed to desert

Sat, 30 Jan 2016 15:52:50 -0800

Milwaukee Brewers SS Jean Segura was acquired by the Arizona Diamondbacks, along with P Tyler Wagner, in exchange for SP Chase Anderson, 2B Aaron Hill, SS Isan Diaz and cash Saturday, Jan. 30.

Fantasy Tip: Segura's value increases a bit with the jet stream in Arizona's gaps. He had a .257-6-50 line with 25 steals last season, and he could return to double digits in homers.

Brewers | Three Brewers sign deals

Fri, 15 Jan 2016 11:04:48 -0800

Milwaukee Brewers SP Wily Peralta, SS Jean Segura and RP Will Smith avoided arbitration by signing one-year deals Friday, Jan. 15.

Fantasy Tip: Peralta had a miserable season, but he still has a lot of potential as an NL-only starter. Segura quietly had 50 RBIs and 25 steals. He's an upper-middle SS option that could be undervalued. Smith was dynamite in relief and could figure into the closing mix in camp. Keep an eye on the lefty.

Brewers | Adam Lind, Jean Segura sitting

Thu, 01 Oct 2015 14:15:12 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 1B Adam Lind and SS Jean Segura are not in the starting lineup Thursday, Oct. 1. 1B Jason Rogers and SS Yadiel Rivera draw into the lineup against San Diego Padres SP Ian Kennedy Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: The Milwaukee lineup is lacking significant punch, and so there isn't a lot of reason to target Brewers at FantasyScore Thursday. View Rogers ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) as nothing more than desperation flier.

Brewers | Jean Segura not starting

Sun, 20 Sep 2015 10:04:41 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers SS Jean Segura is not in the starting lineup against Cincinnati Reds SP Anthony DeSclafani Sunday, Sept. 20. SS Luis Sardinas will start at shortstop and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Segura ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) likely is receiving a day off and should return soon. Sardinas ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is hitting only .198 this season and should not be a starting option.

Brewers | Jean Segura leading off

Sat, 12 Sep 2015 13:16:27 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers SS Jean Segura is leading off Saturday, Sept. 12, with 2B Scooter Gennett out against a left-handed pitcher.

Fantasy Tip: Segura ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is hitting .323 against lefties this year and hits Jeff Locke to a .345 tune in 29 career at-bats. He's a solid midrange option on FantasyScore.
