Jean Segura became the second Brewers player to win National League Player of the Week honors this year, following Carlos Gomez, who took home the award in the third week of April. Segura’s outstanding play over the period spanning May 5 – May 12th was enough for the young Brewers infielder to receive the award.
In five games last week, Segura hit an NL-best .500 over 20 at-bats while leading the league in slugging percentage (.950) and on-base percentage (.545). At just 23-year-old, Segura had his first four-hit game in Saturday's 13-7 loss to the Reds.
Milwaukee acquired Segura from the Angels last July as part of the deal for Zack Greinke. After adding two homers and three doubles last week, Segura has six doubles, three triples and six homers this season.
The Brewers did add a 5-1 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates last night.
