Diamondbacks | No rust for Jean Segura

Thu, 05 May 2016 19:27:29 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Jean Segura (hip) returned to the starting lineup after missing three games with a sore hip and went 2-for-4 in a 4-0 loss to the Miami Marlins Thursday, May 5.

Fantasy Tip: Segura picked up where he left off. His average is up to .345, and he should be back in starting lineups in all formats.

Diamondbacks | Jean Segura back in lineup

Thu, 05 May 2016 12:29:40 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Jean Segura (hip) is back in the starting lineup and is hitting leadoff against Miami Marlins SP Adam Conley Thursday, May 5.

Fantasy Tip: You'll want to get Segura immediately back into your starting lineups in traditional fantasy leagues the way he's started his season off hot. In daily formats, though, it may be wise to take a pass after he missed the last few games with a hip injury.

Diamondbacks | Jean Segura not chasing pitches

Thu, 05 May 2016 10:57:19 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Jean Segura has cut his swing rate on pitches outside the zone from 38.5% to 31.4% this year. His .365 on-base percentage in the leadoff spot is well above the major league average (.339). However, his average on balls in play (.359) is 55 points higher than his career norm.

Fantasy Tip: Cutting down on chasing bad pitches is a start for Segura, but his incredibly high BABIP says regression is in store for the Arizona leadoff man. His power (four home runs after hitting six all of last year) also is unlikely to be sustained over the full season. Even if Segura has made strides with some plate discipline, he remains an attractive sell-high candidate.

Diamondbacks | Jean Segura may be out until Friday

Thu, 05 May 2016 10:10:21 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Jean Segura (hip) could be out until Friday, May 6, although he did single in a pinch-hit appearance Wednesday, May 4. "We'll see how the progress goes," Segura said before the game. "I don't think it's going to take too long. I think we're being smart and not trying to be too tough. We're only in May, so we've got five months to play."

Fantasy Tip: Segura owners are itching to get him back into their starting lineups the way he's played to begin the year. Keep in mind that his hot start is being buoyed by a BABIP that will drop, meaning Segura's hot start and power numbers won't last. He's a prime sell-high candidate after the first month of the season.

Diamondbacks | Jean Segura not starting vs. Miami

Wed, 04 May 2016 14:00:41 -0700

Correcting a previous report, Arizona Diamondbacks SS Jean Segura (hip) is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, May 4. 2B Phil Gosselin is starting at second base and batting leadoff against Miami Marlins SP Jose Fernandez Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Segura hasn't played since Saturday, April 30, and fantasy owners should hope the nagging hip injury doesn't interrupt his excellent start to the season. Through his first 25 games, Segura has 12 runs, four home runs, 15 RBI, four stolen bases and a .333/.362/.523 slash line. Gosselin is a fantasy afterthought facing Fernandez Wednesday.

Diamondbacks | Jean Segura back in action

Wed, 04 May 2016 12:25:18 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Jean Segura (hip) returns to the starting lineup and is back in the leadoff spot against Miami Marlins SP Jose Fernandez Wednesday, May 4.

Fantasy Tip: Segura misses just one start with a minor hip ailment. He's been off to a scorching start but a high BABIP and HR/FB marks say he's bound for regression in the coming months. You aren't benching him in standard leagues, but look to avoid him against Fernandez today in daily contests.

Diamondbacks | Jean Segura bothered by hip

Tue, 03 May 2016 13:29:08 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Jean Segura (hip) is out of the starting lineup with a hip issue Tuesday, May 3, but it's not considered serious. Segura could return Wednesday, May 4.

Fantasy Tip: Check back for updates tomorrow to see if Segura will return to action. He had a great April and surprised with his power stroke. He can't keep that pace up, though, and is incredibly high batting average on balls in play (BABIP) means he's due for regression in the average department. This would be a good time to sell high. Phil Gosselin replaces Segura at second and in the leadoff spot Tuesday but is a low-end middle infield play in daily games.

Diamondbacks | Arizona resting three players

Sun, 01 May 2016 12:44:02 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 2B Jean Segura, 3B Jake Lamb and C Welington Castillo are not in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies Chad Bettis Sunday, May 1. 2B Phil Gosselin will start at second base and is batting first in the lineup. 3B Brandon Drury will start at third base and is batting second, while C Chris Herrmann will start at catcher and is batting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Drury is hitting .321 with three runs and five RBI over the last seven days and should be an attractive starting option in most leagues. Gosselin is batting .276 in limited playing time and could be an option for desperate owners in daily fantasy leagues. Herrmann should be avoided by all owners.

Diamondbacks | Nick Ahmed takes a seat

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 14:46:52 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Nick Ahmed is not in the starting lineup Friday, April 29. SS Jean Segura moves to shortstop and 3B Brandon Drury is starting at second base and is hitting seventh against Colorado Rockies SP Tyler Chatwood.

Fantasy Tip: Ahmed is a defensive-first shortstop who's hitting just .190 (15-for-79), and he could see more bench time if Drury continues to swing a hot bat. Ahmed is an NL-only depth piece. Drury is hitting a cool .414 (12-for-29) with two homers and four RBI in his last seven games. He's a waiver wire target in deep mixed leagues for depth. Keep rolling with him as a low-priced sleeper in daily formats while he's hot.

Diamondbacks | Two more hits for Jean Segura

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 23:55:05 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Jean Segura had two more hits Wednesday, April 27, against the St. Louis Cardinals. It was his 11th multi-hit game, most in the majors.

Fantasy Tip: Segura is hitting a cool .350 with a sparkling .932 OPS, and he has hit safely in each of his past seven games. He has emerged as a must-start in all fantasy formats.
