Not only has he been an impressive at the plate but he has been a solid defender as well, with a .991 fielding percentage. Jean Segura has developing into one of the best young shortstops in the game today and has been a great acquisition by the Brewers front office.
Even if Segura does not keep up this extremely high level of production he still deserves to be the National League starting shortstop in the All-Star Game over Troy Tulowitzki. Tulowitzki does have more pop in his bat, but Segura beats him out in wOBA (.422 to .418). Segura is also able to hit for a higher average, steal more bases and remain on the field unlike Tulowitzki.
Segura has been the prize of the Zack Greinke trade last July and has had an impressive start to this season, developing into a solid young player. Although it is early, he does deserve to be the starting shortstop in the Midsummer Classic this season, as long as he is able to produce at a relatively high level.
