Segura is expected back in Mariners camp from the World Baseball Classic on Tuesday, Doug Miller of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Segura enjoyed an excellent WBC for Team Dominican Republic, hitting .364 (4-for-11) with two doubles, three RBI and a stolen base. Considering he received considerably fewer tournament at-bats than teammates Nelson Cruz and Robinson Cano, manager Scott Servais is considering inserting Segura right back into spring action as soon as Tuesday night's Cactus League matchup against the A's.

Segura will replace Red Sox first baseman Hanley Ramirez (shoulder) on the Dominican Republic's World Baseball Classic roster, according to Dominican general manager Moises Alou, MLB Network's Jon Morosi reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ramirez's absence will be a precaution heading into the season. Segura, meanwhile, will have less time in camp to work with his new Mariners club, but he gives the Dominican squad a more versatile infielder than Han-Ram. It's an unexpected stop on Segura's first spring with Seattle, though the leadoff candidate remains a sensible starting shortstop or second baseman for any eligible fantasy owner.

Segura was 3-for-3 with a single, RBI double and two-run home run in Monday's 14-3 rain-shortened Cactus League loss to the Royals.

EDGE Analysis

Segura has been outstanding over his first two games, going 4-for-5 with a pair of doubles. one homer, three RBI and two runs. The prospect of a locked-in Segura hitting ahead of Robinson Cano, Nelson Cruz and Kyle Seager is sure to give opposing pitchers plenty of apprehension this coming season, and the offseason acquisition looks primed for even better production than his superb 2016 campaign in Arizona with his spring performances thus far.

Segura went 1-for-2 with a double and run scored in Saturday's 13-3 Cactus League victory over the Padres.

EDGE Analysis

Hitting out of the two-hole, Segura made an immediate impact with a line-drive double to left field in the first, eventually coming home on Nelson Cruz's three-run blast later in the frame. It was an ideal start for the offseason acquisition, who the Mariners are counting on as a formidable presence in front of Robinson Cano and Cruz near the top of the order. Given his demonstrated ability to pack the box score and the menacing pair hitting behind him, Segura could be in for an even more explosive campaign than 2016, when he compiled a whopping 68 extra-base hits with the Diamondbacks.

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.
