Segura is expected to open Cactus League action as the Mariners' No. 2 hitter, Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Manager Scott Servais said he will try Jarrod Dyson in the leadoff spot (at least against right-handed pitching), with Segura following in the two-hole ahead of Robinson Cano. With the offseason trade from Arizona to Seattle, Segura sees a big downgrade in home ballpark, but the Mariners seem intent on running more this year so a fifth straight season with 20-plus stolen bases seems likely.

Segura agreed to a one-year, $6.2 million contract with the Mariners on Thursday, avoiding arbitration, Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Segura batted .319 with 20 homer runs and 33 stolen bases last season with the Diamondbacks before being traded to the Mariners in November. Expect him to be the main shortstop for the Mariners for the 2017 season as he looks to build on a great bounce-back 2016 season.

Segura was traded to the Mariners on Wednesday along with Mitch Haniger and Zac Curtis in exchange for Taijuan Walker and Ketel Marte.

EDGE Analysis

It was well known that the Mariners were looking for an upgrade at shortstop and they landed a significant one in Segura. He put together what was easily his best season in his age-26 campaign, batting .319/.368/.499 with 20 homers and 33 steals (43 attempts). While he now goes to a more pitcher-friendly home park and will play for a manager in Scott Servais who didn't run a whole lot this past season (24th in stolen base attempts), Segura's batted ball profile from 2016 and speed bode well for his chances of once again providing quality production atop the lineup.

Segura suffered a cramp under his left ribcage that caused him to leave Thursday's game against the Nationals, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports. The Diamondbacks don't believe the injury is serious and will re-evaluate Friday.

EDGE Analysis

The 26-year-old put together a 1-for-3 afternoon with one run scored and his 32nd stolen base of his renaissance season, in which he boasts career highs of a .319 average, 20 home runs, 97 runs scored, 64 RBI and an .864 OPS. His fantasy owners still playing surely need him to help them in championship week but will have to wait for an update.

Segura went 1-for-4 with a leadoff homer Tuesday against the Nationals.

EDGE Analysis

Segura hit Max Scherzer's first pitch out of the park to reach 20 homers for the first time in his career. The middle infielder has proven himself to be much more than a light-hitting speedster, reaching half of last season's home run total with three in just the past two games. He's currently the only hitter in baseball with at least 20 homers and 30 steals.
