Jean Segura, Centerpiece Of Zack Greinke Trade, Recalled By Brewers

Jean Segura will make his Milwaukee Brewers debut on Monday night, when the Milwaukee Brewers attempt to cool off the scalding hot Cincinnati Reds.

Segura was given just 30 at bats in Milwaukee's farm system prior to the call up. All Segura did was hit in that small sample, batting to the tune of .433/.500/.533, with four steals and four walks against four strikeouts.

Overall in the minors this year, Segura has hit .304/.358/.413 with 37 steals in 102 games. Segura, though, has drawn just 27 walks, but has only struck out 61 times.

Segura was traded along with Ariel Pena and John Hellweg by the Angels in exchange for ace Zack Greinke. It's not in the least bit surprising that Segura is the first to reach Milwaukee, as the Angels had recalled Segura for a brief (read: one game stint) prior to trading him.

I still maintain that the Angels struck gold with this trade, though Segura should prove to be a quality major league piece. I just don't see superstardom in his future, but he should at the least provide the Brewers with a quality shortstop for years to come.
