Phillies’ Jean Segura Leaves Game vs Giants with injury
Right when the Phillies finally started to score some runs, they lose one of their their biggest offensive producers. Second baseman Jean Segura was forced from action with a quad injury and will be evaluated more tomorrow.
Segura exited Tuesday's game against the San Francisco Giants in the second inning running to first base on a groundout.
"Its concerning enough that we'll have an MRI tomorrow," Phillies manager Joe Girardi said via Zoom after the game. "We'll have a better idea of what we're dealing with. I can't tell you exactly if its an I.L. (injured list) yet, but we'll know at some point tomorrow."
If the injury is significant, the 31-year-old could be headed to the injured list. Brad Miller moved over from first base to second base. Girardi said after the game that both Miller and Nick Maton could be used at second base if Segura misses any time.
He’s been among Philadelphia's best offensive players, with a .345 average, and he also has one home runs, five RBIs, seven runs scored. On Tuesday he was moved up to the No. 2 spot in the order.
The team is already playing without shortstop Didi Gregorius, who is missing his second straight game with an injured elbow. Gregorius suffered the injury making a catch over and is considered day-to-day.
"He is better today," Girardi said. "We will evaluate tomorrow if he is able to play. If he is not able tomorrow, I would think it would be Friday."
Girardi said Gregorius could have been used in an emergency situation, but said unless it was an emergency, they didn't want to use him.
Maton started in place of Gregorius on Tuesday and drove in the teams first run of the night.
