While Boateng was one of three pieces D.C. added at the close of the 2019 MLS Secondary Transfer Window in August, the potential departure of Segura might be considered more surprising.
The Costa Rica international played in all but one of the Black-and-Red's 34 games this season in a variety of midfield roles. Most recently, coach Ben Olsen employed Segura on the right as he benched playmaker Luciano Acosta and slotted Paul Arriola in the No. 10 role.
If there was a knock on Segura, it was his relative lack of offensive production, scoring five goals and adding three assists in 56 MLS appearances over two seasons.
