Extension talks break down between Brewers, Jean Segura

The two sides discussed a deal, but had a sizable difference of opinion on the shortstop's value.

Long-term extension talks between the Milwaukee Brewers and shortstop Jean Segura have broken down, according to an industry source with knowledge of the negotiations. The two sides recently discussed an extension, but had a sizable difference in opinion on how to value the 24-year old shortstop.

At this time, the sides do not have any plans to re-visit talks in the near future, but could look to make a deal sometime down the road. Segura is not slated to become a free agent until after the 2018 season, so there is not too much urgency to lock him up on a long-term basis.

As Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reported last week, the Brewers made an attempt to extend Segura in wake of the Braves' deal with Andrelton Simmons, another shortstop with just over a year of service time. Simmons recently received a seven-year, $58MM deal from Atlanta, continuing the trend of teams locking up young players for the long-term.

Segura hit .294 with 12 HR and 49 RBI last season, being named to the National League All-Star team for the first time.
