Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish has the inside info:
The Milwaukee Brewers are expected to discuss a long-term contract extension with shortstop Jean Segura during spring training, according to a source with knowledge of the situation. The team made him an offer during spring training last season, but the two sides “haven’t really” had discussions about a deal since the end of last season.
Seugra isn’t even eligible for salary arbitration until 2016 and he won’t hit the free agent market before the winter of 2019, so there’s no real rush on the Brewers’ end to get this done. The 23-year-old shortstop batted .294/.329/.423 with 12 home runs, 44 stolen bases and 74 runs scored in 146 games last season, earning his first National League All-Star nod.
Milwaukee acquired him from the Angels in 2012 as the centerpiece for starter Zack Greinke.
Anaheim would probably like a do-over on that one.
