The Philadelphia Phillies have had a myriad of issues throughout the early 2022 MLB season, including their fair share of injuries. Unfortunately, shortstop Jean Segura is just the latest player to be sidelined.
The Phillies revealed that Segura is dealing with a fractured finger following Tuesday's 7-4 loss to the San Francisco Giants. The injury occurred during the seventh inning when a pitch hit the veteran's finger while attempting a bunt. He couldn't finish his at-bat and did not return.
Jean Segura Injury Update
The Phillies will likely know more about Segura's status after he undegoes a CT scan sometime on Wednesday. It usually takes a couple of weeks for fractured fingers to heal, though, so fans shouldn't expect to see him anytime soon.
A two-time MLB All-Star, Segura is batting .275 in 167 at-bats so far this season, tallying six home runs, 19 RBIs and eight stolen bases along the way. He batted better in May (.307) than he did in April (.227), leaving the Phillies hoping that he can be that player when he returns.
Segura's injury leaves Philadelphia's shortstop depth looking somewhat bare. Didi Gregorius has been on the IL since the beginning of May, but is expected to return in the coming weeks. That leaves the Phillies with rookie Bryson Stott and Johan Camargo, who have a combined 79 career starts at shortstop.
