That’s what MLB Network said on Thursday.
Segura, 32, has spent the past four seasons with the Philadelphia Phillies. Last season, he hit 10 homers and drove in 33 runs in 98 games, maintaining a .277 batting average. He made the playoffs for the first time in his career, but he was unable to be a determining factor in his team’s journey to the World Series.
The Dominican will be at a sixth club in 12 seasons in major league baseball. He also played for the Los Angeles Angels, Milwaukee Brewers, Arizona Diamondbacks and Seattle Mariners. He was twice invited to the All-Star Game.
