Mariners agree to trade shortstop Jean Segura to Phillies

M’s finalize trade with Mets also send Segura to Phillies Phillies, Mariners Nearing Deal Centered Around Jean Segura

According to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic, the Phillies and Seattle Mariners have agreed to a trade that will send All-Star shortstop Jean Segura, left-handed reliever James Pazos, and right-handed reliever Juan Nicasio to Philly in exchange for shortstop J.P. Crawford and first baseman Carlos Santana. Machado could play shortstop for the New York Yankees in 2019 as Didi Gregorius recovers from Tommy John Surgery, but the team would probably move Machado back to the hot corner upon Gregorius' return. In 2018, he had a.304/.341/.415 slash line with 10 home runs, 63 RBIs, 91 runs scored, and 20 stolen bases in 632 plate appearances.

With the Braves (signing Josh Donaldson), Mets (Robinson Cano trade) and Nationals (Yan Gomes trade) already making a splash, each bringing an All-Star into the NL East, the Phillies made their move less than a week before the 2018 MLB Winter Meetings commence in Las Vegas.

Nicasio, who threw two games for the Phillies in 2017 after getting claimed off waivers by the Pirates, and Pazos are bullpen pieces, but it's Segura that is the centerpiece of the deal for Philadelphia. Source indicates Segura is expected to waive his no-trade clause and be dealt as early as Monday. He is under team control through 2023 and won't be arbitration-eligible until the 2021 season.

Segura, 28, is coming off an All-Star season and will make $14.25 million in each of the next four seasons.

Shortstop was a place Phillies General Manager Matt Klentak was not happy with last season.

The 23-year-old Crawford, drafted by the Phillies in the first round of the 2013 draft, hit.214 with three home runs and 12 RBIs in 49 games last season.

After reportedly reaching a deal to acquire Jean Segura from the Seattle Mariners, the Phillies are reportedly still interested in signing at least one of the bigger free agents available.

Segura is owed $60 million through the 2022 season.
