  • Phillies Reinstate Jean Segura, Release Didi Gregorius

    The Philadelphia Phillies reinstated second baseman Jean Segura (finger) from the 60-day injured list. In corresponding moves, the team activated right-hander Kyle Gibson from the bereavement list and released shortstop Didi Gregorius. Segura is back at the keystone and is hitting seventh on Thursday against Washington Nationals right-hander Paolo Espino, so fantasy managers need to get him back into their starting lineups in single-year formats. Segura has been out for two months after having surgery to fix a fractured right index finger. The 32-year-old should return to regular starting duties at second base. Gregorius got the axe after hitting only .210 with one homer in 214 at-bats. Rookie Bryson Stott should take over as the everyday shortstop now that Segura is back.

  • Phillies Hope Jean Segura Will Return Thursday

    The Philadelphia Phillies remain hopeful that second baseman Jean Segura (finger) will return from the 60-day injured list on Thursday. Interim manager Rob Thomson said Segura might hit lower in the lineup upon his return. He's been out since May 31 with a broken right index finger, but fantasy managers should be getting him back this week. The 32-year-old middle infielder went 1-for-4 with an RBI, a stolen base and a walk in a minor league rehab game for Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Tuesday, and he looks set to return to the big-league lineup. He should return to his starting role at the keystone for the Phillies and needs to be rostered in all fantasy leagues. Before his injury, Segura was hitting .275/.324/.407 with six home runs, 19 RBI, 22 runs scored and nine stolen bases in 167 at-bats.

  • Jean Segura To Begin Rehab Assignment Tuesday

    Philadelphia Phillies second baseman Jean Segura (finger) will begin a minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Tuesday night, according to interim manager Rob Thomson. Segura underwent surgery to fix a fractured right index finger in early June, and it sounds as if he's nearing a return to the majors. He'll be eligible to return from the injured list on Aug. 2, and as long as he doesn't have a setback in the minors, he could return when eligible. Before breaking his finger, the 32-year-old veteran Dominican was slashing .275/.324/.407 with six home runs, 19 RBI, 22 runs scored and eight stolen bases in 179 plate appearances over 44 games, making him valuable in all fantasy formats.
