Jean Segua Removed From Game with Injury
Phillies shortstop Jean Segura had to be helped off -the-field and removed from the game Sunday with a bruised right shin.
The injury occurred when he collided with Ronald Acuna Jr. on a tag play at second base.
According to Phillies manager Gabe Kapler, speaking after the Phillies win ob Sunday against Atlanta, the team doesn't believe there is any long-term concerns about the injury, and should be considered day-to-day.
That said, Segura was barely able to put any weight on his leg as he needed assistance getting off the field.
The Phillies have suffered a ton of injuries this season, in this case, they moved Scott Kingery from centerfield to shortstop, and used Roman Quinn in Kingerys place in the outfield.
Segura has been one of the few consistent offensive performers this season, hitting .281 with 11 home runs, 41 RBI and seven stolen bases in his first season with the Phillies.
He was acquired this offseason in a deal that sent J.P Crawford to Seattle.
