This lines up with previous rumors that the Phillies would be sending shortstop J.P. Crawford to Seattle for Jean Segura. He posted a career-high.304 batting average with a career-low strikeout mark to go with 178 hits, 10 homers and 63 RBIs.

The Philadelphia Phillies have reportedly made their first impactful move of the offseason. Defensively, Segura has appeared in 763 career games at shortstop and 142 games at second base.

For reasons that are hard to explain, the Mariners seem to be willing to move on from numerous key players this offseason, whether it happens to be Segura or Robinson Cano, who will coincidentally be joining the NL East as well after a trade to the New York Mets. Landing Segura before the MLB Winter Meetings begin next week would be an advantage for the Phillies, as it would allow them to head into the annual meetings with one key piece already acquired - and another selling point to other free agents.

The Phillies are also able to move on from J.P. Crawford. How about Santana? Why are they giving up on him so early in his contract?

Shortstop was a place Phillies General Manager Matt Klentak was not happy with last season. Last season, the Long Beach, California native only played in 49 games and hit a pedestrian.214/.319/.393 with three home runs and 12 RBI in 138 plate appearances.

Manny Machado #8 of the Los Angeles Dodgers slides safely into third base after hitting a triple in the seventh inning during a game against the Philadelphia Phillies at Citizens Bank Park on July 23, 2018 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

There is speculation that the Phillies might actually be willing to sign both Machado and Harper. The Phillies also have a $17 million club option for 2023, with a $1 million buyout. Segura has $14.25 million per season owed to him each of the next four seasons while Nicasio is set to make $9 million in 2019.
