Brewers shortstop Jean Segura working on hitting to opposite field
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(6:40 pm ET) Brewers shortstop Jean Segura has worked all spring on his swing at the plate. With Opening Day on the horizon, Segura is putting the finishing touches on his swing and working to hit the ball to the opposite field, reports the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
"That's my approach," Segura said. "I always hit the ball to the other side of the field. When you lose that, you want to get it back because not many players can do it in the big leagues. I'm just lucky to have the ability to do that, and I'm just trying to improve every day."
Manager Ron Roenickes is taking notice of Segura's adjustments.
"The sound of that ball is different," he said. "You're like 'Whoa.' I'm watching as he hits and the load is different. The hands work better. He's doing a couple of things really nice."
Brewers SS Jean Segura working on swing mechanics
|(3/7/15) Brewers shortstop Jean Segura has been working on making his swing less flat-footed, per the team's offical website.
The 24-year-old has been impressing his observers with his swing as of late due to a subtle change in mechanics. One of those observers includes Brewers manager Ron Roenicke.
"I just like his at-bats and the new mechanics of his swing. I like what he's doing," Roenicke said. "He's [staying] back, which should allow him to see the ball better."
Brewers GM confident Jean Segura will bounce back
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(2/28/15) Brewers general manager Doug Melvin expressed confidence Saturday that shortstop Jean Segura will bounce back after a subpar 2014 season, the Journal Sentinel reports.
"I'm pretty confident he's going to bounce back," Melvin said. "He had a very good September. He had a lot of stuff going on last year. But everybody says he's a much happier person and everything. He's a good, athletic player that we need."
After delivering a .294 average, smacking 12 home runs and stealing 44 bases in 2013, Segura hit just .246/.289/.326 with five home runs, 31 RBI and 20 stolen bases in 513 at-bats in 2014.
Brewers manager Ron Roenicke eyeing infield depth this spring
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(2/25/15) Brewers manager Ron Roenicke will spend spring training judging his infielder's versatility for depth behind Jean Segura and Scooter Gennett, per MLB.com.
Milwaukee has three shortstops on its 40-man roster with the chance to break camp with the big-league club. Hector Gomez, 26, and Luis Sardinas, 21, are expected to see time at second base behind Scooter Gennett.
"We want to give Scooter a chance against lefties, but if there's a day off we want to give him, or if it works out that we need to have a [right-handed hitting] guy there more often, who's it going to be?" Roenicke said. "Is it going to be Sardinas? Jimenez, because we know he hits lefties well? Who's that other guy who's going to be there?"
Yadiel Rivera, 22, should see some work at third behind Aramis Ramirez.
|2014 summary: Perhaps no player disappointed in 2014 to the extent Jean Segura did. Drafted just a couple rounds after Troy Tulowitzki and Hanley Ramirez following his breakthrough 2013, he ended up performing on about the level of Jonathan Villar. It didn't come without warning considering his .241 batting average and .583 OPS in the second half of 2013, but few thought his regression would translate so completely, particularly with all that big talk about him tiring with the increased workload.|
Playing time status: Segura has no specific injury concerns or threats to his playing time. The Brewers expect him to be their shortstop for years to come, and at age 24, he still has plenty of time to unlock his potential. But in terms of development, he's pretty much back to square one.
2015 outlook: The good thing about playing shortstop is you have a wide margin for error in Fantasy. Segura was nothing short of terrible in 2014, but because so few shortstops are real difference makers in Fantasy, gambling on his potential, at least in shallower leagues that offer deep waiver wires, isn't a bad way to go. He may still be one of the first 12 shortstops drafted in Fantasy, but at the tail end of that group.
