According to Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Brewers general manager Doug Melvin said yesterday that he plans to meet with team owner Mark Attanasio this weekend to discuss a possible contract extension for shortstop Jean Segura.
The Brewers previously pitched the idea of an extension to Segura’s agent last May, but nothing came of it. There’s no rush to get a deal done, as Segura isn’t even arbitration-eligible for the first time until 2015, but he’ll only get more expensive if he can build off a solid first season in the majors. Andrelton Simmons‘ recent seven-year, $58 million extension with the Braves will surely come up in any conversations.
Segura, who turns 24 on Monday, hit .294/.329/.423 with 12 home runs, 49 RBI, and 44 stolen bases over 146 games last season.
