Brewers shortstop Jean Segura hitting over .300 to start the year


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/22/2015) Brewers shortstop Jean Segura went 2 for 4 at the plate Tuesday in Cincinnati's 16-10 loss to the Reds. Segura did his damage in the third when he ripped a double to center field off of Jason Marquis and was driven home on an Elian Herrera double.

Segura, who was moved to lead off in the lineup when Carlos Gomez was placed on the DL, is hitting .238 in 21 at-bats from the lead off slot. He is heating up at the plate of late, boosting his average to .308 in 52 at-bats this season. In his last seven games, Segura has recorded four multi-hit performances.


Brewers SS Segura: Eighth hole is 'worst spot ever'


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2015) Brewers shortstop Jean Segura minced no words when asked about his forced move out of the eighth hole and into the leadoff spot due to the hamstring injury that befell Carlos Gomez.

While he expressed sadness at the misfortune of his teammate, Segura added that he was certainly happy to rise in the batting order.

"This is the worst spot ever in baseball," he told MLB.com.

Segura earned the move-up. He has opened the season by compiling a .333/.379/.519 slash line with three extra-base hits.


Brewers' Jean Segura bats leadoff Thursday with Gomez sidelined


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2015) With Carlos Gomez sidelined with a hamstring injury Thursday, Brewers manager Ron Roenicke moved shortstop Jean Segura into the leadoff spot. Gomez had started the first eight games as the leadoff hitter.

Segura has appeared in the leadoff spot just 20 times in his career. He is batting .271 (23 for 85) with one triple, two doubles, six RBI, seven stolen bases and 15 runs in that span.

The Cardinals are starting John Lackey on Thursday. Segura is 3 for 3 in his career against Lackey.


Brewers shortstop Jean Segura charged with two errors Monday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/13/2015) Brewers shortstop Jean Segura struggled with his glove in Monday's 5-4 win over the Cardinals. Segura made a throwing error in the fourth inning that led to a run and again in the seventh on a Matt Holliday ground ball. Holliday eventually scored later in the inning, but Segura will continue to press on and put it in the past, reports MLB.com.

"You can't control making errors in the game. It's part of being human in baseball," Segura said. "I don't want to make any mistakes, but just don't stop. Come strong and keep doing your best and be ready for the next one. I make those two errors, and then I make the diving play that might save the game. … It was a big play to me."


Brewers' Lucroy, Gennett not in starting lineup Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/12/2015) Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy and second baseman Scooter Gennett are not in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Pirates.

Lucroy is getting a break from starting Sunday after opening the season just 1 for 20, and Martin Maldonado will take his spot behind the plate. Manager Ron Roenicke said he isn't worried about Lucroy's slow start, the Journal Sentinel reports.

"Luc has had some good at-bats," Roenicke said Sunday. "He stayed on a breaking ball and hit a bullet to second yesterday. The day before he lined out to short. So he’s had some good at-bats. The first couple days he was lost, then he started swinging the bat again. I like what he’s doing."

With Lucroy out of the lineup, Jean Segura will move to the No. 2 slot, and the manager indicated that Segura's early-season performance made his choice for the spot easy.

"The way he’s been swinging it, yeah," Roenicke said. "Other than that, I don’t what I would have done. Sometimes you slip in a Khris Davis or somebody else. But Seggy, the way he’s swinging, he’s perfect."

Gennett is out of the lineup for the second straight game after getting ejected Friday for slamming his bat to the ground on a called strike three when the team had no backup infielders on the bench. Hector Gomez will get a second straight start at second base after going 2 for 3 Saturday.

The Brewers are favorites (-120) against the Pirates Sunday.


Brewers shortstop Jean Segura rips home run Saturday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/12/2015) Brewers shortstop Jean Segura went 1 for 2 from the plate Saturday with a two-run home run in Milwaukee's 6-0 win over the Pirates.

Segura, who is hitting .400 through five games this season, is making small adjustments to help him see the ball better, reports MLB.com.

"I've been working out with my hitting coach. I've just been working hard, trying to find a spot to put me in good position to hit the ball," Segura said. "[I'm trying] to look for the pitch that I can handle. Last year, they kept pitching in and I kept swinging at it. If you keep swinging it, they're going to throw there. Right now, I just walk in and try to see my pitch and attack."

Manager Ron Roenicke just wants Segura to continue to be consistent at the plate.

"I don't know whether he will hit like he did two years ago," Roenicke said, "but he's really swinging the bat well. Anything we get close to a couple of years ago is going to be huge."


Brewers SS Jean Segura avoids injury despite being hit in helmet


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(4/8/2015) Brewers shortstop Jean Segura was hit by a pitch in the helmet by Rockies pitcher Jordan Lyles on Tuesday. Segura stayed in the game and ended up popping out. The Brewers lost 5-2.

“I thought my nose was broken,” said Segura, who managed to avoid serious injury last year when struck on the face by a bat being swung on-deck by teammate Ryan Braun.

“I asked the trainer if I’m bleeding or something. It was scary. When I was lying on the ground, I felt pain in my nose. When the trainer said, ‘You’re not bleeding,’ I stayed in the game. Thank god it was nothing serious," per the Journal Sentinel.

Segura went one for two with one run scored, putting his batting average at .400 through two games. 

 


Brewers outfielder Carlos Gomez to leadoff on Opening Day


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/5/2015) The Brewers have announced their Opening Day lineup and it will go: center fielder Carlos Gomez, catcher Jonathan Lucroy, right fielder Ryan Braun, third baseman Aramis Ramirez, first baseman Adam Lind, left fielder Khris Davis, second baseman Scooter Gennett, shortstop Jean Segura and pitcher Kyle Lohse.

Gomez and Gennett were competing throughout camp to see who would end up as the leadoff hitter in the lineup. Gomez has hit leadoff in 106 of 148 games, posting a .276/.356/.488 slash line with 20 home runs and 50 RBI.


Brewers shortstop Jean Segura working on hitting to opposite field


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/1/2015) 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' Roenicke chooses Carlos Gomez to bat leadoff


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/31/2015) Brewers manager Ron Roenicke told reporters Tuesday's spring lineup against the Reds will be the team's Opening Day batting order, per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Tuesday's lineup had center fielder Carlos Gomez batting first, and he was followed by catcher Jonathan Lucroy, right fielder Ryan Braun, third base Aramis Ramirez, first baseman Adam Lind, left fielder Khris Davis, second baseman Scooter Gennett and shortstop Jean Segura. The pitcher will bat ninth.

Roenicke said he chose Gomez to bat leadoff over Gennett because moving Gomez to the middle of the lineup disrupts other hitters.


Brewers SS Jean Segura working on swing mechanics


(3/7/2015) 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
(2/28/2015) 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
(2/25/2015) 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.


Brewers shortstop Jean Segura makes changes to batting stance


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/24/2015) Brewers shortstop Jean Segura arrived to spring training Tuesday ready to put his 2014 season behind him. A year after being an All-Star in 2013, Segura hit just .246 with five home runs and 31 RBI in 146 games last season.

"I'm trying to forget about what happened last year. I never been that unproductive in my career," he said, per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "That was my first time. Sometimes you need to have one of those years to learn what it takes to go to the next level.

"Pitchers are going to adjust to you and you need to adjust back. As a young guy, you don't realize what's going on. It was a tough year."

Segura said he made some changes to his batting stance, which he hopes will get him back on track offensively in 2015.

"I've been working on it because I had some troubles getting out front with my left leg," said Segura, who is holding his hands back more and putting more weight on his back leg. "It works. I used it in winter ball and it worked for me. I'm going to continue to do it. It helps me stay back more."


Brewers' Roenicke hopeful Segura has bounce-back year in 2015


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/9/2014) Following an All-Star campaign in 2013, Brewers shortstop Jean Segura had a down year in 2014. He struggled offensively, batting just .246 with a .289 on-base percentage, but manager Ron Roenicke is hopeful Segura will bounce back in 2015, per MLB.com.

"I think just mentally and maturity-wise, I think he's in a lot better place than he was last year for a lot of the season," Roenicke said of Segura, who became a father in October. "So I'm hoping he comes back and has another great year. If not, Hector [Gomez] is there, and [prospect Orlando] Arcia is coming."
