Segura scored a run and had two RBI with his fourth triple. Segura is hitting .361/.404/.542 in 158 at-bats after he hit .258/.315/.325 in 151 at-bats last season.
Reports came out Tuesday that the Brewers are already looking to lock up Segura long-term, despite having just 320 plate appeareances at the major-league level by which to judge him. The fact that the team is so sold on him should be a good sign for those Fantasy owners who are wondering if his hot start is for real.
Segura is being helped out by a .376 batting average on balls in play, and his seven home runs are just three shy of matching his highest total in the minors, so there are definite signs that this is an outlier. On the other hand, he is barely striking out and has a very high 21.6 percent line drive rate, so a .300-plus batting average seems sustainable. If he can trade his power surge for an increased reliance on his speed, Fantasy owners will take that. At this point, Segura is looking like one of the best shortstops in the game.
Segura's agent Joe Klein said the team contacted him about a long-term deal, and that the ball is in his court now. Klein admitted it's tough to figure out a fair deal for someone with a small amount of playing time. He added that it would be good if Segura and the team came to an agreement, but classified negotiations as "way on the drawing board."
Segura has certainly helped his cause this season. He's currently hitting .368/.412/.588 in 136 at-bats.
Segura singled in his first three plate appearances of the night, and swiped second after each hit. Though he was on base three times, Segura did not score any runs. He's hitting .368/.412/.588 in 136 at-bats.
Segura has a .359/.406/.588 batting line, trailing just Carlos Gomez for best on the Brewers in all three categories. His stolen base was his 10th, good for fourth in the National League.
