Mariners, Phillies reportedly discussing Jean Segura for JP Crawford trade

JP Crawford

The Seattle Mariners are tearing down their team and still have a piece to trade in Jean Segura. One team they’re talking about trading him to is the Philadelphia Phillies, and JP Crawford could be involved in such a deal, according to a report.

The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal says the Mariners have shown interest in Crawford for a potential trade involving Segura.

Crawford, 23, was the No. 16 overall pick by the Phillies in 2013. The shortstop has struggled to hit for average his past three seasons after performing well his first three years in lower levels of the minors. Crawford has batted .214 in 72 games over parts of two seasons with the Phillies.

Segura, 28, is under team control through 2023 and making $14.25 million per season each of the next four years. He batted .304 with a .755 OPS — his third straight year over .300 — while playing solid shortstop.
