Jean Segura went 4-for-6 and hit his fourth homer Monday as the Diamondbacks topped the Cardinals 12-7.
Segura's homer was a three-run shot off Kevin Siegrist in the sixth. Segura has four homers in 91 at-bats this year after hitting six in 560 at-bats last season and five in 513 at-bats in 2014. He was playing in a better home run park then, too. He leads the NL with 32 hits this season. Apr 26 - 2:03 AM

Jean Segura went 3-for-5 with a triple and two RBI as the Diamondbacks beat the Giants 6-2 on Thursday.

Segura had cooled off some after a big first week, but he had two three-hit games in the series against the Giants and he's still hitting .338 overall. He'll probably remain useful in mixed leagues for as long as he remains in the leadoff spot for the Diamondbacks.
Apr 21 - 7:11 PM

Jean Segura is absent from the Diamondbacks' lineup for Sunday's game versus the Cubs.

The D'Backs are going with Phil Gosselin at second base and Chris Owings at shortstop. They also have Brandon Drury in left field over Yosmany Tomas and Chris Herrmann at catcher rather than Welington Castillo.

Jean Segura went 3-for-4 with two doubles, a steal and two runs scored as the Diamondbacks edged the Cubs 3-2 on Friday.

Yasmany Tomas singled in pinch-runner Chris Owings in the bottom of the ninth to win it. Arizona's other two runs came on Paul Goldschmidt singles to drive in Segura. Segura has been red-hot since early spring and isn't showing any signs of slowing down. It will happen eventually, but he has mixed-league value while hitting at the top of Arizona's order.
Apr 9 - 1:07 AM

Jean Segura went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and an inside-the-park home run in Thursday's loss to the Cubs.

First, the boring homer. Segura slugged a solo dinger off Cubs starter John Lackey to lead off the bottom of the first inning. His next bomb would be slightly less conventional. In the second inning, he hit a hard rocket shot to dead center. Outfielders Kyle Schwarber and Dexter Fowler both closed in on the ball. They collided with each other (Schwarber had to be carted off the field) and the ball bounded away to allow Segura to race all the way around the bases. While he already has three home runs in the first week of the season, owners shouldn't expect power surges on a regular basis. He whacked 12 homers in his first full season in the bigs back in 2013, but accumulated just 11 combined taters over the next two campaigns.
Apr 8 - 1:15 AM

Jean Segura went 2-for-5 with a pair of singles and a stolen base in Wednesday's loss to the Rockies.

Segura and Nick Ahmed were the only Diamondbacks to manage more than one hit against Tyler Chatwood and company on Wednesday. The 26-year-old infielder is off to a nice 6-for-15 start with a homer and three RBI as we open the 2016 season. In 2015, he slashed .257/.281/.336 with six homers, 50 RBI and 25 steals across 560 at-bats. Those in deeper NL-only leagues who need a speed boost might consider Segura, but he offers very limited fantasy upside otherwise.
Apr 6 - 6:29 PM

Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said Wednesday that he feels comfortable with Jean Segura being his leadoff hitter.

It's easy for him to say that since Segura is hitting .527 with a .544 on-base percentage this spring, but he has only gotten on base at a .301 clip in his career, including .285 over the past two seasons. Still, it will be good for his fantasy value for as long as he can hang around at the top of Arizona's lineup. Segura is set to be a regular, though it's unclear whether that will be at shortstop or second base.
Mar 30 - 2:19 PM

Diamondbacks general manager Dave Stewart said Tuesday that Jean Segura has "done enough to earn a spot every day."

Segura probably would've had to fall flat on his face this spring not to come away with a regular job. He did the opposite, hitting .527 with three homers and five stolen bases. Stewart did not say whether Segura's starting job would be at shortstop or second base, so it's possible he'll play some of both. Chris Owings (.362, two homers, eight steals) and Nick Ahmed (.418, one homer, two steals) have also blistered the ball this spring. Ahmed is likely third in the pecking order.
Mar 29 - 7:51 PM

Bob McManaman of the Arizona Republic writes that "all signs point" to Jean Segura batting leadoff for the Diamondbacks this season.

A.J. Pollock is also in the mix, but it looks like Segura will be the guy. He's far from an ideal leadoff hitter given his career .301 on-base percentage, but Segura's fantasy stock will be up for as long as he can stick at the top of what should be a good lineup.
Mar 27 - 8:44 AM

Jean Segura continued his blistering spring on Thursday by going 2-for-4 with a walk, two runs scored, and a stolen base in a 9-8 win over the Padres.

Segura is now batting .523 (23-for-44) during Cactus League action. We doubt he has suddenly turned a new leaf given how his production has dropped off since the second half in 2013, but the Diamondbacks appear likely to go with him as their regular leadoff man. He’ll get a boost in fantasy value for as long as he can hang on there.
Mar 24 - 8:37 PM

Jean Segura (knee) will return to Cactus League action on Saturday.

Segura was scratched from Wednesday's game with a sore knee, but the Diamondbacks were just being cautious. He's expected to hold down shortstop for Arizona this season, although he could also see some time at second base.
Mar 11 - 2:47 PM

Jean Segura (knee) was scratched from Wednesday's Cactus League game against the Royals.

He's dealing with a knee issue. Manager Chip Hale said Segura won't be available for Thursday's game either. "Nothing major, just a little bit sore," said Hale. Segura has had a great spring so far with nine hits in 13 at-bats. He's expected to see time at both shortstop and second base this year.
Mar 9 - 2:48 PM

Jean Segura went 2-for-3 and blasted a leadoff home run on Friday, powering the Diamondbacks to a 6-3 victory over the Athletics in Cactus League action.

Segura, hitting out of the leadoff spot in the D'Backs order, tagged Felix Doubront for the first inning shot. He's expected to serve as the club's everyday second baseman this season and his speed makes him an attractive middle infield option in mixed leagues.
Mar 4 - 6:50 PM

Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said Jean Segura will have a chance to play "almost everyday" if he can handle second base.

He'll make his Cactus League debut at second base Friday against Oakland. Nick Ahmed is a superior defensive shortstop and the Diamondbacks would probably like to use him there as often as possible. Chris Owings stands to lose playing time if Segura gets comfortable at second.
Mar 3 - 8:51 PM

Jean Segura went 3-for-3 in the Diamondbacks' 6-3 defeat of the Rockies on Wednesday.

He hit leadoff and started at shortstop for the Snakes. Segura is also expected to see some action at second base this spring in the Cactus League. He'll try to breathe new life into his career in Arizona after batting just .257/.281/.336 in 142 games last season for the Brewers.
