Jean Segura finished 5-for-6 with three steals Friday against the Padres.

One Dave Stewart move that's worked out was the Segura acquisition; Segura is hitting .321 after coming in at .246 and .257 in his last two years in Milwaukee. He also has as many homers (11) and doubles (31) as the last two years combined.
Aug 20 - 2:47 AM

Jean Segura went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and two runs scored in Thursday's loss to the Padres.

Segura scored the first run of the game on a wild pitch by Paul Clemens in the first inning. The 26-year-old second baseman would do louder damage with a two-run home run in the sixth inning. For the season, Segura is slashing .315/.362/.473 with 11 homers, 47 RBI and 24 steals. On the micro level, he is 7-for-14 over his last three games.
Aug 19 - 2:23 AM

Jean Segura went 2-for-5 and smacked a two-run homer on Saturday.

After two seasons of dismal production at the plate, Segura is back to being a good fantasy shortstop again this year. He is batting .308 with 10 homers, 66 runs, 44 RBI and 18 stolen bases.
Aug 7 - 12:24 AM

Jean Segura is out of the Diamondbacks' starting lineup Wednesday versus the Nationals.

Brandon Drury will start at second base and bat seventh and Chris Owings will start at shortstop and bat second against Nationals right-hander Max Scherzer. This looks to be a simple day of maintenance for Segura.
Aug 3 - 12:13 PM

Jean Segura went 1-for-2 with a double in Monday's loss to the Nationals.

Segura's double off Stephen Strasburg was the Diamondbacks' only extra-base hit of the evening. It was his 23rd two-bagger of the season. The 26-year-old second baseman has hit to a cool .312/.362/.456 triple-slash with nine homers, 42 RBI and 18 steals over 417 at-bats.
Aug 2 - 1:24 AM

Jean Segura hit a solo home run in the first inning and added an RBI double in the second on Saturday.

In his first season as a Diamondback, Segura is having a nice bounce-back campaign after being one of the league's worst hitters the last two years in Milwaukee. He is batting .313 with nine home runs, 62 runs, 42 RBI and 17 stolen bases.
Jul 31 - 1:21 AM

Jean Segura had a nice night at the dish in Friday's loss to the Reds, going 2-for-3 with a solo home run.

Segura got the game started out with a bang, launching a leadoff home run off of Dan Straily. He has been a terrific catalyst atop the D'Backs lineup this season, slashing .314/.359/.451 with eight long balls and 38 RBI.
Jul 22 - 11:24 PM

Jean Segura was forced to exit Wednesday's game against the Padres due to a bruised left triceps.

Segura saw one at-bat, but Phil Gosselin pinch-hit for him next time he was slated to step to the dish. Segura has already undergone X-rays, which came back negative. He will be reevaluated on Thursday. Even if he manages to escape major injury here, it wouldn't be a surprise if the Diamondbacks give him a few games off to rest up.
Jul 6 - 11:39 PM

Jean Segura had three hits and two steals Monday against the Padres.

Segura has certainly found his stroke again; he's batting .360 with eight steals in his last 18 games. He's even walking, which is the truly bizarre thing. He's reached via the base on balls 15 times in 30 games. Last year, he walked 13 times in 142 games. He walked five times in his first 50 games this year.
Jul 5 - 2:01 AM

Jean Segura went 4-for-4 with a double and two runs scored in Tuesday's loss to the Dodgers.

The double was Segura's 13th of the season. With the four-hit performance under his belt, he is now slashing .309/.345/.445 with five homers, 29 RBI and seven steals across 265 at-bats. He has picked up 11 hits in his last five games.
Jun 15 - 1:09 AM

Jean Segura is absent from the Diamondbacks' lineup Sunday.

He probably didn't argue much about getting a breather against Jake Arrieta. Welington Castillo is also receiving a day off, as the D'Backs have Phil Gosselin at second base, Chris Herrmann at catcher, Chris Owings at shortstop, Michael Bourn in center field and Brandon Drury in right.
Jun 5 - 11:58 AM

Jean Segura struck out three times in an 0-for-4 day versus the Astros on Thursday.

Segura hasn't finished a game with a sub-.300 average this year, but it's threatening to happen soon; he's down to .302 right now. Segura never walks, so he's not hitting .300, he's not much of a leadoff hitter. Still, the Diamondbacks probably won't be quick to slide him down the lineup.
Jun 2 - 5:10 PM

Jean Segura went 2-for-5 with a double and two runs scored Thursday against the Pirates.

Segura's OPS has declined steadily since his outstanding first week of the season, but even so, he's remained a solid leadoff hitter for the Diamondbacks. He's hit .299 with a .330 OBP in May after coming in at .333 with a .362 OBP in April. Of course, as rarely as he walks, he needs to keep his average up around .300 to be useful at the top of the order.
May 26 - 4:36 PM

Jean Segura (head) is in the Diamondbacks' starting lineup Thursday against the Pirates.

Segura was taken to a hospital in Pittsburgh and tested for a concussion Tuesday after getting plunked on the side of the batting helmet by a 96 mph Arquimedes Caminero fastball. He somehow managed to avoid a serious injury and will bat leadoff in his return to action Thursday afternoon versus Pirates right-hander Gerrit Cole.
