FANTASY BASEBALL BREAKING NEWS: JEAN SEGURA MOVES TO D-BACKS IN FOUR-PLAYER SWAP

The Milwaukee Brewers continued their firesale on Saturday, with their latest move being to ship shortstop Jean Segura and RHP Tyler Wagner to the Arizona Diamondbacks as part of a four-player deal.  In return, the Brewers get second baseman Aaron Hill, starter Chase Anderson, and SS Issac Diaz.  The move likely opens the door to an early season promotion of top Brewers shortstop prospect Orlando Arcia. 

Analysis:  Segura has been a disaster the last two years after a tremendous breakout 2013 campaign where he looked like the next Jose Reyes.  He has some NL-only appeal but nothing more.  Meanwhile Hill has been a joke the last two years as well as he is now in the twilight of his career and is just a filler option at second base over the bland Scooter Gennett.  While Jonathan Villar will man shortstop for Opening Day which makes him a bit intriguing due to his steals potential, the watch has already begun for Arcia to debut.
