He was picked up in November by the Seattle Mariners in exchange for Ketel Marte and Taijuan Walker. Mitch Haniger and Zac Curtis also came to the Mariners in the deal.
The 2013 All-Star smacked a career-high 20 home runs and had 64 RBI last season. He led league with 203 hits and 637 at-bats. Segura also raked a career-best .319 last season. The Mariners agreed to contracts on all eight of its arbitration eligible players before Friday's deadline, according to MLB.com.
