Phillies Trade for All-Star Shortstop Segura

The Mariners have sent All-Star shortstop Jean Segura, right-handed reliever Juan Nicasio and left-handed reliever James Pazos to the Philadelphia Phillies for veteran first baseman Carlos Santana and up-and-coming shortstop J.P. Crawford. Machado could play shortstop for the New York Yankees in 2019 as Didi Gregorius recovers from Tommy John Surgery, but the team would probably move Machado back to the hot corner upon Gregorius' return. He added 10 home runs, 63 RBIs, 20 stolen bases, 29 doubles, three triples, a.755 OPS and just 69 strikeouts in 632 plate appearances. They'd probably be better off prioritizing Bryce Harper or Manny Machado, as offense was a big issue for the team last season.

Details are still emerging but this is an exciting move for the Phillies. He had been up and down in the Phillies organization and thought once touted as one of their top prospects, he had fallen out of favor somewhat.

The deal, which was announced Monday, involves multiple players and required Segura to waive his no-trade clause to join Philadelphia. How about Santana? Why are they giving up on him so early in his contract? He immediately solidifies the Phillies infield with his solid defense and excellent bat.

With all due respect to J.P. Crawford since the potential always seemed to be there, the addition of Segura would clearly be an upgrade at the position.

The vote, passed by 311 votes to 293, is the first time in history Parliament has held a Government in contempt. Mrs May said: "We have delivered a deal that honours the vote of the British people".

Shortstop was a place Phillies General Manager Matt Klentak was not happy with last season. He was supposed to help lead a young Phillies group through the final stretch of the rebuild and into the postseason for the first time since 2011.

J.P. Crawford, the 13th pick in the 2013 Major League Baseball draft, played 49 games for the Phillies past year.

While the deal immediately improves Philadelphia's roster, what does it mean for the Phillies in relation to the Harper and Machado sweepstakes?

At shortstop last season, Segura only had 17 errors and a fielding percentage of.969, which is a vast improvement from 2017 where he had a.962 Fld%.
