Jean Segura and the Seattle Mariners have avoided salary arbitration by agreeing to a $6.2 million, one-year contract. He made $2.6 million with the Diamondbacks last year. He was traded to the Mariners in late November.
Segura batted a career-high .319 with 20 homers, 33 stolen bases and 64 RBIs for Arizona last year, leading the National League with 203 hits. The Mariners control him through 2018, and barring a contract extension will go through the arbitration/arbitration avoiding one-year deal path once again next winter.
