Another productive shortstop on the block is Jean Segura. He is just starting to come into his own at 25 years old. This year he is hitting .281 with three home runs, three triples and seven stolen bases. His OPS is the highest it has been in two years at .714.

He has been more productive than Brad Miller. Their OPS numbers are almost identical, but Segura has a 50 point higher average and a slightly higher on-base percentage. He is also more of a threat to steal.

The Mariners are also atrocious hitting with runners in scoring position, with a combined average of .218 in 2015. Segura is hitting .345 this year in that department. Anything to boost the chances of getting a key hit with runners on base would be a welcome change in Seattle.
