Jean Segura is about to finish his first full season in the majors, but the Brewers are already thinking about locking him up for the long-term.

Brewers general manager Doug Melvin told Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel today that he will contact Segura’s agent this winter to discuss a long-term deal. The 23-year-old won’t arbitration-eligible for the first time until after the 2016 season, so there isn’t a huge sense of urgency to get a deal done, but the Brewers could secure some some cost certainty if they buy out his arbitration years and perhaps a year or two of free agency.

Segura is batting .296/.331/.426 with 12 home runs, 49 RBI, and 44 stolen bases over 145 games this season. He has seen his production decline since the All-Star break and has been dealing with a hamstring injury recently, but that Zack Greinke trade is looking pretty good right now.

    Lock him up. As much as a phony Braun is, having Segura, Braun, Scooter, Gomez and Rameriz healthy next year could be a nice bounce back season.

    So Alcides Escobar and Lorenzo Cain for two years of Grienke and an elite, young SS. Who would have thought that trade for Grienke would have ended up being a good deal, not only in the short term, but in the long term too?

    Im sure Ryan Fruad will fork up some unearned cash from his contract
