Quick look at the Segura-Walker trade

Yes, the trade involved five players, but Jean Segura and Taijuan Walker are the big names here. The Mariners sent Walker and Ketel Marte to the Diamondbacks for Segura, Mitch Haniger and Zac Curtis.

Jim Bowden ESPN Senior Writer 

The Arizona Diamondbacks new front office led by GM Mike Hazen made their first big move of their administration last night and it was a dandy landing one of the games best pitching prospects in Taijuan Walker in a five player deal that also netted shortstop Ketel Marte. In return, the Seattle Mariners get shortstop Jean Segura, outfielder Mitch Hanover and LHP Zac Curtis. Segura improves Mariners on-base percentage, speed and power at shortstop, However, if Walker can do what he hasn't done in his career and that's reach his potential as a top of rotation starter, then the Diamondbacks may have just made a trade that 3 years from now people will remember as a difference maker. Mariners are better today...but Diamondbacks might be better tomorrow in this deal.
