Segura went 2-for-4 in a losing effort against St. Louis on Friday night.

The Brewers are continuing to hit Segura in the leadoff role with Carlos Gomez (hamstring) on the disabled list. Gomez is nearing a return, but it will be interesting to see if Segura stays atop the lineup since Jonathan Lucroy is on the shelf with a broken toe and the Brewers may want to slide Gomez into a run-producing role. Segura is hitting .302/.333/.397 with a homer, five RBI, and three stolen bases through 17 games.

Segura will play shortstop and bat leadoff in Thursday's game against the Cardinals.

Segura will handle the shortstop duties like he usually does, but he will also be bumped to the top of the batting order in place of the injured Carlos Gomez (hamstring). It's not clear how long Gomez will be sidelined, but Segura, who owns a .333/.379/.519 slash line on the season, is likely to handle the leadoff duties until Gomez is able to return.

Segura committed two throwing errors (and had another bad throw on an attempted double play that wasn't scored an error) in Monday's win over the Cardinals.

The Brewers were able to escape with a sloppy win despite Segura's throwing woes. At the plate, Segura is off to a .304/.360/.522 start after Monday's 1-for-4 performance. He remained seventh in the batting order Monday even with Scooter Gennett returning to the lineup.

Segura went 1-for-2 and scored a run after getting hit by a pitch in the fifth inning Tuesday.

Segura will hit seventh in Tuesday's game against the Rockies after hitting eighth in Monday's season opener, Andrew Gruman of FOX Sports Wisconsin reports.

Segura will move up a spot in the order to split up left-handed hitters Scooter Gennett and Gerardo Parra, who is starting in right field and hitting sixth Tuesday with Ryan Braun out with a side injury. Braun is not expected to be out long, but Parra will likely be the regular right fielder in Braun's absence, so Segura could continue hitting a spot higher in the order until Braun returns to the field.

Segura is 5-for-21 (.238) with a double and an RBI through nine games this spring.

The mechanical adjustments Segura made over the winter haven't shown up in his spring statistics, as he is still experiencing the same issues with contact and power he had last season. Despite the issues, Segura still has a few weeks to try and figure things out before the regular season begins, and is locked in as the Brewers' starting shortstop.

Segura spent time during winter ball working on a mechanical adjustment that he hopes adds more power to his swing, MLB.com's Adam McCalvy reports.

Segura tallied just 25 extra-base hits last season after racking up 42 the year before, so he went away from his flat-footed approach and began lifting his front leg -- a change he plans to carry over into the upcoming season. Segura endured a trying 2014 campaign, but if he is able to add some pop back into his game, he will be far more effective as both a hitter and fantasy option in 2015.

Segura is out of the lineup Thursday against the Cardinals.

Segura has never really found his way out of his season-long offensive doldrums, batting just .240/.283/.314 on the campaign. While he still ranks as the team's top option at shortstop, his offensive downturn might cause him to lose starts on occasion to Elian Herrera and Hector Gomez.
