Phillies linked to Mariners Jean Segura

Phillies linked to Mariners Jean Segura

With the Philadelphia Phillies linked to almost every big free agent on the market. It is no surprise the organization is active to many trade rumors as well.

Ken Rosenthal of the Athletic reports the Seattle Mariners to have a deal lined up to send shortstop Jean Segura to the city of brotherly love. Segura one of 16 players who hit .300 this past season has a full no-trade clause. In reality, Segura could decline any trade if he wanted to. Although with the recent moves the Mariners have made, Segura may decide to decide to leave the Jet City.

On the other hand, the Mariners seem to have interest in the one-time top prospect J.P. Crawford. It may be Crawford’s time on the main roster has not been what was anticipated. Conversely, Crawford only hit .214 with three home runs in 117 at-bats.

Although injuries crippled most of the young shortstops playing time, the Mariners would get a young shortstop at the age of 23 with a decent amount of upside.

Philly still to pursue Machado

As we all know the Phillies and all-star Manny Machado have been linked since last years trade deadline. If general manager Matt Klentak and the Phillies can pull off a trade for Segura and sign Machado; The fightin Phils would have a completely revamped left side of the infield. A very productive left side of the infield at that.

Segura and Machado combined for 366 hits, 175 run, and 170 RBI. Coupled with slugger Rhys Hoskins the Phillies would have a dangerous and electrifying middle of the order. In contrast, here is a potential opening day lineup skipper Gabe Kapler could set:

  1. Jean Segura SS
  2. Cesar Hernandez 2B
  3. Manny Machado 3B
  4. Bryce Harper RF
  5. Rhys Hoskins 1B
  6. Odubel Herrera CF
  7. Jorge Alfaro C
  8. Nick Williams LF
  9. Pitcher

Time will tell what moves will ultimately take place. Of course, we here at ProSportsNotes will keep you up to date as the story continues to develop.
