3 realistic targets - 1. Jean Segura

Landing at number one and certainly flying under the radar is Jean Segura. Carrying a career .285/.330/.408 slash, Segura is a guy that keeps Hoerner at shortstop while he mans 2B. The two-time all-star is fresh off a four-year run with Philadelphia and is a solid piece for whoever he signs with. Segura for the Cubs is a corresponding move that can be made should they miss on Swanson to at least have another solid bat in the lineup, coupled with good defense.

Next. Cubs never made an offer to Carlos Correa. dark

After moving over to second base, Segura has been much better defensively. He finished second behind Gold Glove winner Tommy Edman in both Outs Above Average with nine and runs prevented in which he recorded seven. He wound up missing an extended period in 2022 with a broken finger and, therefore, never really came close to those numbers, but given what they were in 2021, It's safe to assume he will be back to his usual self at 2B in 2023. At the very least, he is a good fallback option for the Cubs.
