Jean Segura went 3-for-6 with three RBI and a pair of runs scored as the Dominican Republic outlasted Colombia 10-3 in 11 innings in Sunday's World Baseball Classic matchup.

In what was a thriller of a ballgame, Colombia tied the score at 3-3 with a solo homer by Jorge Alfaro in the eighth inning. Once it got to the 11th, international rules dictate that each inning begin with runners on first and second base. The stacked Dominican lineup took full advantage of that, breaking the tie with a two-run single from Welington Castillo and then cashing in on a three-run double by Segura. With the victory, the Dominican Republic remains undefeated in WBC play and automatically advances to the next round.

Jean Segura will replace Hanley Ramirez on the World Baseball Classic roster for Team Dominica.

Ramirez is working through some shoulder discomfort and officially pulled out of the tournament on Thursday morning. Segura probably should have been on the initial roster anyway after flourishing to the tune of a .319/.368/.499 batting line, 20 home runs, 33 stolen bases, and 102 runs scored in 153 games last season for Arizona. He is projected to serve as the Mariners' everyday shortstop in 2017.

Jean Segura went 3-for-3 with a home run and three RBI on Monday versus the Royals.

He delivered a run-scoring double in the first inning and followed that with the two-run longball in the second frame. He was acquired by the Mariners in the Taijuan Walker trade with Arizona back in November. He had an excellent season in 2016 with a .319 batting average, 20 home runs, 102 runs scored and 33 stolen bases. He also had a big year in 2013 but his other three seasons were woeful. He has been batting second in the Mariners' order so far this spring and will be their everyday shortstop.

Mariners and INF Jean Segura avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $6.2 million contract.

It's a significant boost from the $2.6 million salary he made in his first year of arbitration in 2016. And deservedly so. Following a couple of very disappointing seasons, Segura bounced back in a big way with the Diamondbacks last year by batting .319 with 20 homers, 102 runs scored, and 33 stolen bases. He was traded to the Mariners in November and should be the regular shortstop in 2017. Look for him to be an early-round pick in fantasy drafts this spring.
Jan 12 - 11:40 PM

Mariners acquired 2B Jean Segura, OF Mitch Haniger and LHP Zac Curtis from the Diamondbacks for SS Ketel Marte and RHP Taijuan Walker.

Strong, strong offensive move by the Mariners. They ranked sixth in all of baseball in runs scored last season and Segura should only help to pump up that volume. He figures to shift to shortstop with his new club, as they already have a pretty slick second baseman in Robinson Cano. Segura, 26, is coming off the best year of his major league career, having just slashed .319/.368/.499 with 20 homers, 64 RBI and 33 steals over 637 at-bats.

Jean Segura (ribs) went 0-for-3 with a walk and a run scored in his return to the Diamondbacks lineup on Friday.

Segura was forced to make an early exit from Thursday's game due to a cramp under his left rib cage. He's having an outstanding season atop the D'Backs lineup, slashing .319/.367/.496 with 20 homers, 64 RBI and 32 stolen bases.

Jean Segura is dealing with a cramp under his left rib cage.

Segura departed Thursday's game with the ailment. The D'Backs think he's going to be fine, but they'll see how he feels when he reports to the park Friday before knowing whether he'll be in the lineup.

Jean Segura made an early exit from Thursday's game against the Nationals with an apparent injury.

Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic says Segura "may have tweaked his side or maybe his back" during his seventh-inning at-bat. There should be an update soon. Segura was 1-for-2 with a walk and a run scored.

Jean Segura clubbed his 20th home run of the season in Tuesday's loss to the Nationals.

After slugging a pair of longballs Monday, Segura led off the game Tuesday with another dinger. He continues to extend his career high in home runs in what has been a career year for the Diamondbacks' shortstop.

Jean Segura clubbed a pair of home runs and drove in three in Monday's blowout win over the Nationals.

Segura got the scoring starting for the D'Backs with a solo shot in the fourth and then added a two-run shot in the eighth. He also had a single on the night. A lot of things have gone wrong for Arizona this season, but Segura certainly hasn't been one of them. He's up to a career-high 19 home runs and is just four hits shy of a 200-hit campaign.

Jean Segura went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in a loss to the Dodgers on Saturday.

He led off the bottom of the first inning with his 17th home run of the season. After being one of the worst hitters in baseball the last two seasons in Milwaukee he has really turned things around in his first year as a Diamondback. He is batting .316 with 56 RBI, 90 runs scored and 30 stolen bases.

Jean Segura finished 5-for-6 with a pair of homers Wednesday as the Diamondbacks topped the Rockies 11-6.

Segura didn't make an out until his final at-bat, and it took 11 pitches for the Rockies to retire him then. Segura wouldn't always see 11 pitches per game last year. He's a completely different player now, though. Besides the .317 average, he has 16 homers and 36 doubles through 136 games. In his final two years with the Brewers, spanning 288 games, he totaled 11 homers and 30 doubles.

Jean Segura went 3-for-5 with two home runs and three runs scored in Tuesday's 11-4 win over the Rockies.

Segura socked solo home runs in the first and fourth innings. He whacked both of those off Rockies starter Jorge De La Rosa. The two dingers gave the 26-year-old second baseman 14 for the season as a whole. That tally stands as a career best for Segura. In addition, he is slashing .312/.358/.470 with 53 RBI and 30 steals over 568 at-bats.

Jean Segura went 3-for-4 with a double and two runs scored as the Diamondbacks topped the Rockies 8-5 on Sunday afternoon in Colorado.

Segura also swiped a pair of bases in the ballgame, giving him 30 for the season. With the three-hit attack, he's now hitting a terrific .320/.369/.476 with 12 homers and 51 RBI on the season.
