Per MLB.com:

 

 

"Jean has all the tools to be a star-level player," Dipoto said. "He's been that the past year and a half and we're thrilled to make him part of our family for the next five, and possibly six, years."

 

I've got to admit I'm a little surprised -- more so given his two DL stints thus far.

 

[super delayed Edit]

Numbers are $70M over 5 years (2018-2022) with a $17M club option for 2023.

AAPs:

Kyle Lewis

The M's 2016 first round pick and the 11th Overall is the system's top prospect and has several accolades to his name.  Even though he is currently out of commission recovering from injury, he still has a whole bunch of potential.

Mike Ford

This Rule 5-acquired first baseman just might be the M's best player at the position.  I'm betting on it!  He's never walked less than he's K'd and he just flashed some serious power in his first taste of AAA.  He just needed a position and there happens to be one available in the Emerald City.

 

 

Gone, but not forgotten AAPs:
Nick Franklin

Brad Miller

Roenis Elias

Joe Wieland

'Boog' Powell

 

So long, fellas.  I hope that all of you do well in your future endeavors.  Perhaps you can tap into the potential seen in the M's system and have success elsewhere in the baseball world.  Just... not against the M's, OK?

His job, if he chooses to accept it, is to draw a throw and a hard slide says he's in this. Happy for him.

Very happy to see this!  Segura has been very impressive.  Just about every one of his at-bats is good, and he's been fine at shortstop.  Here's to seeing him stay free of injuries, and to a very productive five years!

Keeping free of injuries is the key.  His contract is not that bad, I might even say it is team friendly!  5 years (plus an option) $70 million for a guy who can in any year lead the league in hitting?  Nothing wrong with that!

I like it a lot. Maybe signing him while on the DL saved the team some $$$.
