The Seattle Mariners and shortstop Jean Segura reportedly agreed to a new contract Tuesday. Jon Morosi of MLB Network noted the five-year extension guaranteed Segura $70 million. Morosi confirmed the news, which was originally reported by Hector Gomez. Segura wasn't due to be an unrestricted free agent until 2019, per Spotrac. Seattle traded for him in November, sending pitcher Taijuan Walker to the Arizona Diamondbacks in a five-player deal. The shortstop dominated out of the gate, with a slash line of .341/.391/.462 in his first 43 games, but he was placed on the disabled list Friday with an ankle injury. It was significant enough to cause general manager Jerry Dipoto to say Segura could miss up to two months, per Dave Mahler of Sports Radio 950 KJR.
