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.

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.
May 26 - 10:28 AM

Jean Segura said he does not have a concussion.

Pirates reliever Arquimedes Caminero hit Segura on the side of his batting helmet with a 96 mph fastball on Tuesday, sending him out of the game and to a local hospital. Segura remains active on the Diamondbacks' roster Wednesday and could be ready to return by the weekend. Call him day-to-day for now.
May 25 - 4:38 PM

Jean Segura was sent to a local hospital in Pittsburgh after showing concussion symptoms.

Segura got struck in the side of his batting helmet Tuesday by a 96 mph fastball from Pirates reliever Arquimedes Caminero. Nick Ahmed also took a Caminero pitch to the head an inning later but came away mostly unscathed. There should be an update on Segura at some point Wednesday. A stint on the 7-day concussion disabled list may be in the cards.
May 24 - 10:48 PM

Jean Segura left Tuesday's game against the Pirates after taking a pitch off his helmet.

Pirates reliever Arquimedes Caminero, one of the hardest throwers in the majors, struck Segura with a 96 mph fastball in the top of the seventh inning. Segura was eventually able to walk off the field on his own, but this is an obvious concussion-watch situation. There should be an update from the Diamondbacks after the game.
May 24 - 9:39 PM

Jean Segura went 3-for-5 with a run scored in Thursday's loss to the Giants.

Segura also stole second in the games, his fifth steal of the season. With the three hits, the 26-year-old infielder is now slashing a healthy .353/.378/.533 with five homers and 17 RBI over 150 at-bats. He is in the midst of a 10-game hitting streak.
May 13 - 1:03 AM

Jean Segura went 3-for-5 with an RBI in Tuesday's win over the Rockies.

Segura's RBI single capped a four-run sixth inning for the Diamondbacks. The shortstop continues to tear it up at the dish, as he's now 13-for-33 during an eight-game hitting streak. Segura is batting .350/.377/.536 with five homers, 17 RBI and 18 runs scored this year.
May 11 - 1:00 AM

Jean Segura is back in the Diamondbacks' starting lineup Thursday versus the Marlins.

Segura missed a few games with a minor hip issue. He's batting leadoff and starting at second base in his return to action Thursday night against Miami left-hander Adam Conley. Segura, 26, boasts a .339/.368/.527 batting line with four home runs and 15 RBI in 26 games this season for the Snakes.
May 5 - 3:55 PM

Jean Segura (hip) had a pinch-hit single Wednesday in the Diamondbacks' loss to the Marlins.

Segura was out of the Diamondbacks' starting lineup because of a hip issue. Clearly it's pretty minor. The rejuvenated middle infielder is batting .339/.368/.527 with four homers and 15 RBI in 26 games this season.
