Segura most recently had played for the National League Champion Philadelphia Phillies. He missed a good portion of the 2022 season with an injury, but played a key role down the stretch for the Phillies. Overall, the 32 year old hit .277/.336/.386/.723, stole 13 bases, and had a 104 OPS+.
The Marlins will be the sixth team that Segura has played for throughout his career. He has been involved in four trades during his career. Teams to have traded him in the past include the Angels, Brewers, Diamondbacks, and Mariners.
Jean Segura’s tenure with the Milwaukee Brewers.
Segura played for the Brewers from 2012 through 2015. He was an All-Star in 2013. That year he had a .294 batting average and stole 44 bases. He hit .246 and .257 the following two years with the Brew Crew while also stealing more than 20 bases each season.
Prior to the start of the 2016 season, the Brewers traded Segura to the Diamondbacks. He was packaged with Tyler Wagner in order to acquire Chase Anderson, Isan Diaz, and Aaron Hill. Diaz was later used in the Christian Yelich trade package and Hill was traded to the Red Sox for Wendell Rijo and Aaron Wilkerson.
Approaching age 33, Segura is still typically an above league average offensive player. He still hits for a high average and steals bases in the double digits. Defensively, he is now primarily a second baseman. Hopefully he performs well with his new team in Miami!
