Miami Marlins sign infielder Jean Segura in first big move of offseason

The Marlins have agreed to a two-year, $17 million deal with infielder Jean Segura, sources confirmed to the Miami Herald on Wednesday. Once officially in place, the Marlins will need to act accordingly to make room for Segura on a currently filled 40-man roster.

Segura, who turns 33 on March 17, has 11 years of major league experience, having spent the past four seasons with the Philadelphia Phillies. He provides a solid hitter for the Marlins, who desperately need an above-average defensive player.

Segura is a career .285 hitter with a .739 slugging percentage, 107 homers, 492 RBIs and 712 runs scored in 1,328 games.
