Segura is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rangers, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports. Segura remained in the starting nine Saturday after being benched for a lack of hustle in Friday's game, but the veteran will take a seat for the season finale. The Mariners have all but three of their regular starters on the bench, with Andrew Romine taking over at shortstop and batting ninth. Segura could still enter the game but is likely to finish the season with a .304/.341/.415 slash line, 20 stolen bases and 10 home runs.
Segura went 3-for-4 with an RBI on Saturday against the Rangers. After being benched due to lack of hustle on Friday, Segura responded by recording his first three-hit game since Sept. 1. While he's struggled for much of September -- he entered Saturday's contest slugging .247 across 81 at-bats -- Segura still managed to produce across the board for the season. His 20 stolen bases, .304 batting average and 91 runs scored all made him a strong option in all formats.
Segura was benched for not running hard enough from second base to home plate in the Mariners' win over the Rangers on Friday, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports. Segura actually scored on the play in question, but manager Scott Servais was displeased with the apparently lackadaisical approach the shortstop took on the basepaths. Segura finished the game with a walk and a run in the victory, and Servais was noncommittal about whether he'd be in the lineup Saturday.
Segura went 2-for-6 with a solo home run, two runs scored and a strikeout in Tuesday's win over the Athletics. Segura blasted a solo home run in the third inning for his 10th long ball of the year. While he's hit just .205 over 73 at-bats since the start of the month, the 28-year-old is still hitting .303 on the year and sits just two RBI away from matching the career-high 64 he produced in 2016.
Segura (illness) will do some fielding drills prior to Thursday's game against the Angels, and he could be deployed as a pinch hitter in the series opener, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports. Segura has been dealing with an illness that has held him out for the past three contests, although given that he's planning on participating in some field work, it doesn't appear overly serious. Expect the 28-year-old to return to the starting nine sometime over the weekend.
