MLB Rumors: Jean Segura trade to Phillies likely coming soon

Jean Segura MLB Philadelphia Phillies Seattle Mariners

The Mariners have sent All-Star shortstop Jean Segura, right-handed reliever Juan Nicasio and left-handed reliever James Pazos to the Philadelphia Phillies for veteran first baseman Carlos Santana and up-and-coming shortstop J.P. Crawford. Last season he hit.341/.415/.755 with 63 RBIs and 10 home runs in 144 games.

Of course, in order to land a star player like Machado or Harper, as great as it is to see the Phillies having money to spend, they also need to prove they have what it takes to compete for a World Series title.

The Philadelphia Phillies have reportedly made their first impactful move of the offseason.

Crawford, 23, was once a top 10 prospect in all of baseball, but he's lost his luster the past few years. Defensively, Segura has appeared in 763 career games at shortstop and 142 games at second base. He is under team control through 2023 and won't be arbitration-eligible until the 2021 season.

Even with Santana's sizable salary, the Mariners shed a ton of financial obligation in the trade - and that's with Seattle reportedly paying Segura $1 million to waive his no-trade clause.

With the trade for Segura, the infield is beginning to look pretty crowded.

The Mariners would likely receive J.P. Crawford in return. The Long Beach native was selected by the Phillies 16th overall in the 2013 MLB Draft and has 72 games of experience in the Majors.

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

In an Instagram post, Crawford thanked the Phillies organization and Phillies fans for "the inspiration to work as hard as I do, day in and day out".

While the deal immediately improves Philadelphia's roster, what does it mean for the Phillies in relation to the Harper and Machado sweepstakes? 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. Adding Segura to the picture still leaves the Phillies options if Machado chooses the City of Brotherly Love.
