Fantasy Impact: Segura was batting .262 this season in 33 games. Shortstop Luis Sardinas will be recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs to fill the open spot on Brewers roster. Elian Herrera and Hector Gomez could also likely see time at shortstop in Segura's absence.

Fantasy Impact: Segura batted seventh in the Brewers lineup, but he still managed to run and get a steal. He is batting .282 this season and if he continues to run he should be able to become a very usable fantasy shortstop. He did steal 44 bases in 2013 but dropped to 20 steals last season.

Segura went 1-for-4 with an RBI and a stolen base in the Brewers 4-2 win over Cincinnati. Segura is batting .288 this season.

Fantasy Impact: Segura continues to bat leadoff for the Brewers and the running is a good sign, but he needs to do a better job getting on base. He only has two walks on the season. Segura can be a good play in fantasy as long as he stays on top of the lineup. If he returns to the lower part of the batting order when injured center fielder Carlos Gomez returns that would greatly diminish his value.

Segura batted in the leadoff spot for the injured Carlos Gomez and went 1-for-4 with two strikeouts in the Brewers 4-0 loss to the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact: Segura is batting .323 on the young season. The Brewers were shut out on Wednesday and there may be some lineup shuffling as they seek answers to their offensive woes. Segura is secure as the shortstop if he continues to bat leadoff that increases his fantasy appeal.

Segura went 1-for-4 with a double in the Brewers 5-4 win over St. Louis. Segura is batting .304 in the early portions of 2015.

Fantasy Impact: Segura is off to a nice start this season. He's been batting lower in the order for the Brewers so that decreases his fantasy value a bit, but he's a solid play in any fantasy format.

Fantasy Impact: Segura could be a key catalyst to a successful Brewers season as well as to your fantasy team. All indications are that he will return to his All-Star caliber of play from 2013. He could be a late round sleeper if you decide to wait on a shortstop and is capable of producing numbers at batting average, runs and steals as well as some surprising power.

Segura endured heartbreak in 2014 with the death of his young son in July. Between that tragedy and an assortment of injuries, Segura batted .246, with a .289 on-base percentage and only 25 extra-base hits in 513 at-bats. The year before, when Segura made the National League All-Star team, he batted .294 with a .329 OBP and 42 extra-base hits. (Source: MLB.com)

Fantasy Impact: Segura will be highly motivated to regain his All-Star form in 2015. He could be a sleeper candidate at a thin shortstop position in deeper mixed and NL-only leagues.
