Jean Segura enjoyed a career year in 2016 and a lot of it had to do with the ballpark he was in. Chase field is one of the best hitter’s parks in the league and the usual light hitting shortstop who just contributes in stolen bases and runs benefit greatly there. He had a career high in home runs, RBIs and average, and now he is heading to Safeco Field in Seattle where his power numbers will most likely be cut in half.
Projected to be a top 55 pick is too much of a risk. He will give you stolen bases next year and has a chance to score 100 runs again but for only two categories, that is not worth drafting in the top 55 overall. Segura will end up on zero of my teams and he shouldn’t even up on anyone’s roster who is reading this. Draft players with a lot more upside such as Alex Bregman and David Dahl who can be top 30 players by the start of next year.
