The mariners will send Allstjern’s short stops and possibly another player to Phillies in exchange for a package of players including first base man Carlos Santana and shortstop J.P. Crawford.

This is no longer a “reimagination” of a roster – whatever it means. While marinists can notice it a “step back”, it resembles a rebuild with every transaction that General Manager Jerry Dipoto makes this offseason.

Major League Baseball sources confirmed Sunday night that the sailors worked to end a trade that would send All Star Starstart Jean Segura and possibly another player to Philadelphia Phillies in exchange for a package of players including first base man Carlos Santana and shortstop JP Crawford .

The exact player package is still agreed, but the principles of the deal would be Segura, Santana and Crawford.

Monday would be about the completion of a highly publicized trade that would send the marines stars Robinson Cano and Edwin Diaz to New York Mets.

In addition to the medical reports and other details, there is another aspect of the trade t Hat must be resolved before the trade becomes official &#821

1; Segura’s complete trade clause. After shopping three times in his career, Segura demanded a complete no-trade clause in the five-year contract extension of $ 70 million that he signed with the seamen in the mid 2017 season.

It is difficult to know if Segura will refrain from its non-trade clause. His personality is far from predictable. But with his close friend Cano, being traded to Mets and the Mariners, who are destined to lose seasons in the next few years, it seems that Segura would welcome an opportunity to leave.

Playing for a rising Phillies team in a hitter-friendly Ballpark can also be attractive.

Segura, who becomes 29 in March, struck .304 with a .755 OPS, 29 doubles, three triples, 10 homers and 63 RBI in 144 matches while named for the American League All Star team. In two seasons with the navalists, he hit .302 with a .765 OPS.

He is under contract for the next four seasons and owes just under 60 million dollars.

This money to Segura is why the sailors would be acquiring Santana in the store. The veteran’s first baseman / designated hitter would help compensate any of the salary. Santana owes $ 40 million over the remaining two years of his contract. He hit .229 with a .766 OPS, 28 doubles, two triples, 24 homers and 86 RBI in 2018.

Given Mariners’ situation, if Santana would show a return to his previous production with the Indians who earned him it The big deal, the navalists would almost certainly trade him if possible.

Crawford, 23, was once regarded as a promising prospect for Phillies, but he has struggled to adapt to the MLB level. He played in only 49 games with Phillies this season and hit .214 with a .712 OPS, six doubles, three triples, three homers and 12 RBIs. In 72 games in the last two seasons he hit .214 with a .692 OPS.

Segura was able to participate in the list of players traded on the Mariners 2018 list on Monday evening, including: Mike Zunino, James Paxton, Robinson Cano, Edwin Diaz, Guillermo Heredia and Alex Colome.
