The Miami Marlins have struggled in the past to compete with many high-budget teams in the MLB, but they made a big addition with the signing of two-time All-Star infielder Jean Segura on what appears to be a very team-friendly deal on Wednesday.

According to MLB insider Héctor Gómez, the Marlins have agreed to terms on a two-year $17 million contract with Segura that will keep him in Miami through the 2024 MLB season.

Segura is coming off a 2022 season with the Philadelphia Phillies where he excelled as a contact hitter, slashing .277/.336/.387 while hitting ten home runs on the year.

While he is not the splashy superstar signing the Marlins need to become a true contender, many believe that he can certainly be a productive player on an affordable contract in Miami.

“Teams that didn’t even need Seguard should have beaten this offer,” tweeted Matt Williams of The Gameday.

“Solid signing. Veteran right handed hitter who offers positional versatility. Good for Jean to get a 2 yr deal, gives him some more security. Also a trade candidate if season goes sideways,” tweeted Joe Frisaro of the Man on 2nd podcast.

Segura will likely be near the top of the Marlins lineup next season, and he could make a sizable impact on a team that seemingly desperately needs a veteran leader in their locker room for their abundance of young players on the roster.
