Jean Segura posted a single and a double over three at-bats with a walk in Friday's game against the Angels.

It wasn't all great, as Segura was charged with his 11th error after booting a ground ball. His average has tumbled from .322 to .315 since flipping the calendar to August, but he already has seven walks with just four strikeouts after drawing just five free passes in the entire month of July.
Aug 12 - 3:44 AM

Jean Segura went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in Thursday's loss to the Angels.

Segura cracked a solo home run off Bud Norris in the eighth inning to draw the Mariners to within 3-1. Later that frame, Nelson Cruz socked a two-run shot to tie up the score before Mike Trout finally put down the pesky M's with a go-ahead three-run double in the ninth inning. For his part, Segura is now slashing .312/.366/.433 with seven homers and 34 RBI in 85 games. He has been in an extended power drought over the last month-plus, as Thursday's home run was his first since July 5.
Aug 11 - 1:50 AM

Jean Segura went 2-for-4 with a triple and two runs scored versus the Royals on Friday.

No steal attempts for Segura tonight, but he already has three steals in August. He hasn't hit as well since coming off the disabled list, but since it doesn't seem to be a physical issue, he should get it back.
Aug 4 - 11:59 PM

Jean Segura is not in the Mariners' lineup Tuesday against the Rangers.

He's just getting a breather. Danny Espinosa will fill in at second base and bat ninth against Texas right-hander Nick Martinez. Segura sports the AL's third-highest average at .322 and also ranks ninth in the AL with 12 steals.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: With several high-end arms on the hill tonight, we'll need to find a handful of value bats in order to make rostering them a viable endeavor. Segura's absence opens that up in the form of Jarrod Dyson, who will slot into the 2nd spot in the order against Nick Martinez, who owns a 9.5 BB% against LHBs, which won't bode well against a guy with Dyson's speed. Cano, Seager and Cruz are also relatively affordable across the industry, so the Mariners set up as an affordable yet attractive stack.
Aug 1 - 5:17 PM

Jean Segura finished 1-for-2 with a double, a walk, an RBI and a hit by pitch in Monday's victory against the visiting Red Sox.

Segura was clipped on the foot on the HBP but he was fine and able to remain in the game. In fact, the Red Sox didn't feel he was hit by the offering from Eduardo Rodriguez, and they challenged the ruling to no avail. The double was Segura's first hit in four games, snapping 15 at-bats hitless skid.
Jul 25 - 3:43 AM

Jean Segura finished 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles, a run scored and an RBI in Saturday's game against Oakland.

Segura has been extremely productive in the month of July, going 17-for-35 (.486) with four doubles, a homer, six RBI and an outstanding 1.171 OPS through eight outings. If he can stay healthy and get himself among the qualifiers, he could contend for a batting title in the second half.
Jul 9 - 4:17 AM

Jean Segura went 4-for-4 with a double in Thursday's 7-4 loss to the A's.

On an evening in which the Mariners fell behind 7-0 early and made little offensive noise until Danny Valencia socked a three-run homer in the ninth, Segura's fine night stood out. Nothing new there -- he has been on an out-and-out tear with the base knocks of late. His four-hit performance on Thursday was his third such game in his last five. He is slashing a cool .354/.396/.486 with six homers, 28 RBI and nine steals across 243 at-bats. Had he not missed three weeks with a high right ankle sprain, the counting stats would be more robust.
Jul 7 - 1:11 AM

Jean Segura finished 2-for-5 with a two-run home run, two runs scored and a stolen base in Wednesday's game against the Royals.

Segura has been on fire lately, collecting 10 hits over his past 19 at-bats to drive his average up to .343. He appears to be back to his pre-injury levels and he continues to pile up solid stats across the board. He is slashing .435/.435/.609 with a 1.043 OPS through five games in July.
Jul 6 - 4:26 AM

Jean Segura went 4-for-5 with an RBI single and a run scored in Tuesday's loss to the Royals.

Unfortunately for the Mariners, Segura tallied half of their hits and they didn't have a single extra-base knock all day. It's the shortstop's second four-hit game in his last three contests.
Jul 4 - 9:36 PM

Jean Segura finished 4-for-5 with a double, run scored and two RBI in Sunday's road victory against the Angels.

Segura is 17-for-50 (.340) over his career against the Halos. The shortstop continues to hum along, posting a robust .338 average. He has driven in five runs over his past five outings and appears to be back to 100 percent after spending time on the 10-day disabled list due to a high ankle sprain.
Jul 2 - 11:18 PM

Jean Segura finished 1-for-3 with a two-run home run and a walk in Tuesday's game against Philadelphia.

Segura's shot was all the Seattle offense could muster against Aaron Nola, who was masterful in a 113-pitch quality start. It was also his first homer - and just his second extra-base hit - in six outings since coming off the 10-day disabled list on June 21.
Jun 28 - 3:21 AM

Jean Segura finished 1-for-4 in Saturday's game against the Astros with one strikeout.

Segura has hit safely in each of his four games since coming off the 10-day disabled list. While he has just one double and no other extra-base hits or RBI, he is still getting aboard. He is slashing a solid .338/.388/.455 and he'll contribute with an occasional steal as well.
Jun 25 - 1:58 AM

Jean Segura (ankle) went 1-for-3 with a walk and two runs scored in his first game back from the disabled list Wednesday night against the Tigers.

Segura missed less than three weeks with a high right ankle sprain, after initial estimates suggested he might be out for two months. The 27-year-old shortstop boasts a stellar .341/.393/.459 batting line with four home runs, 20 RBI, seven stolen bases, and 31 runs scored in 44 games this season. He signed a five-year, $70 million contract extension with Seattle while he was on the shelf.
Jun 22 - 8:15 AM

Mariners activated SS Jean Segura from the 10-day disabled list.

Segura had been out since June 2 due to a high ankle sprain. Just days later the Mariners inked him to a five-year, $70 million contract extension. Now fully recovered from his ankle issue, Segura is in the lineup and leading off Wednesday's game against Tigers. Prior to going down injured, he had been hitting .341/.391/.462 with four homers, 20 RBI and seven steals over the course of 43 games played.
