Part of what has made the Phillies an offensive juggernaut in the early stages of this season is the consistency Jean Segura has given them at the top of the lineup. Look no further than their 10-run first inning in their trouncing of the Mets.
They could be without his presence for some time now, however, as Segura left Tuesday's game early on with hamstring tightness.

With Segura out, Maikel Franco will take his spot at third base and Andrew Knapp slides over to first base.
So Jean Segura is out of the game. Maikel Franco moves to third base. Andrew Knapp will play first base. No word on why Segura left the game.— Todd Zolecki (@ToddZolecki) April 16, 2019
