Milwaukee Brewers SS Jean Segura is starting at shortstop and hitting leadoff against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Vance Worley Friday, April 17.
Fantasy Tip: Segura ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) is expected to man the leadoff spot for at least the next couple of weeks with Carlos Gomez (hamstring) on the DL. Scooter Gennett ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) could also see time atop the lineup. Segura's fantasy baseball value will receive a boost in the short term, and he's a solid shortstop option at FantasyScore this evening.

Fantasy Tip: Segura ($4,700; 9.4% of cap) finished with a single in two at-bats with a run scored and the HBP. Despite the fact he was able to remain in the game, it wouldn’t be shocking to see him get a day off Wednesday.

Milwaukee Brewers SS Jean Segura signed a contract for 2015 with the Brewers Tuesday, March 3. The Brewers set Tuesday as their deadline for players ineligible for arbitration to sign or have their contract renewed at a salary of the team's choosing.
Fantasy Tip: Segura followed a fantastic rookie season in 2013 with a far less impressive encore last year. He's a late-round rebound candidate who could prove starter worthy at shortstop. At worst, Segura's ability to steal bases (20 in 2014 and 44 in 2013) makes him an attractive middle infielder.

Milwaukee Brewers SS Jean Segura, who had a disappointing season in 2014, played a few weeks in winter ball to implement some changes to his batting stance. "I've been working on it because I had some troubles getting out front with my left leg," said Segura, who is holding his hands back more and putting more weight on his back leg. "It works. I used it in winter ball and it worked for me. I'm going to continue to do it. It helps me stay back more."
Fantasy Tip: Segura isn't as good as his 2013 suggested (.294 with 12 homers and 44 stolen bases), but he's not as bad as what he showed last year (.246 with 20 stolen bases). Expect something more in the middle in 2015, which means he's a sexy pick for his discounted price in the middle rounds.
