Philadelphia Phillies adding Jean Segura could help bring in additional talent

Jean Segura

The Philadelphia Phillies have made a trade with the Seattle Mariners to acquire All-Star shortstop Jean Segura.

This past season, Segura hit.304/.341/.415 along with 10 home runs and 61 RBI.

For the past few weeks the Phillies and their future could not be discussed without mentioning Bryce Harper and Manny Machado.

It was only natural that the Phillies and Mariners matched up at some point this offseason.

Segura may not be on the same level as Machado or Harper, but this addition will certainly make it clear to other potential free agents that Philadelphia is taking the necessary approach to be a top contender in 2019.

The deal will include multiple players and Segura will need to waive his no-trade clause. It would be pretty surprising at this point if Segura wasn't with the Phillies before the Winter Meetings, which start next Monday, and it seems like Crawford will be involved.

That means that a new engine is needed, and according to reports it sounds like Google's Chromium will pick up the slack. That new browser is said to now carry the codename Anaheim, and will replace Edge as the default browser for Windows 10.

The Mariners would likely receive J.P. Crawford in return.

"Carlos Santana has been among the most durable players in the big leagues over the last eight years and has been a fixture in the middle of lineups during that time", Mariners general manager Jerry Dipoto said in a press release.

Crawford, 23, hit.214 with three homers and 12 RBIs over 49 games last season with the Phillies.

Segura first became a name to look out for in 2013 when he was named to his first MLB All-Star game as a member of the Milwaukee Brewers. Doing so could cost them well over $600 million, though Philadelphia has plenty of money to spend with less than $70 million committed to players for next season before landing Segura.

Last year around this time, the Phillies signed the veteran slugger to a three-year, $60 million deal to provide some offensive firepower in the batting order. Adding Segura to the picture still leaves the Phillies options if Machado chooses the City of Brotherly Love.
