The Fish have been busy preparing for the season. Will Bruce Sherman commit to Jazz Chisholm Jr. on a long-term deal when he's closer to free agency? Jazz has been the subject of some interesting news this week, and there are a lot of eyes on the face of the franchise. Jazz's health has been a concern, but what if he's healthy this year?

Miami Marlins CF Jazz Chisholm Jr. may finally be healthy this season.

Jazz Chisholm Jr. has never played a full season for the Miami Marlins in his four seasons on the team. He wants to change that this year however, working out more seriously and changing his diet. . It's fair to doubt the results until it actually happens, but suppose he does stay mostly healthy? What if he plays in let's say 140 games?

Jazz's highest total was 124 games and 464 AB back in 2021, when he batted .248/.303/.425, with 18 home runs and 53 RBI. So how would he do in a full season? Let's start with batting average. Jazz's career batting average is .245 and he's projected for a .248 average by Fangraphs. I would expect it to be in the .245-.250 range, with the prospect of more.

How about home runs? Jazz had a 90.4 Exit Velocity last season and has a career 90.1 mark. Fangraphs projects 27 home runs for him in 139 games. If he plays a full schedule, I see him hitting 26-32 home runs. FG projects 84 RBI for him in 139 games, but I see him driving in closer to 90 in a full season of AB's.

If I had to make a full season prediction, I'll predict Miami Marlins CF Jazz Chisholm Jr. will likely bat around .250, with 30 home runs and 91 RBI. Either way, I'm pretty sure that when healthy he can have a 30 home run season with 90+ RBI. That would of course make him a middle of the order bat, that he's supposed to be. I'm not even taling about his elite speed. He's projected to steal close to 30 bags, which I see him doing as well in a full healthy season.

dark. Next. MLB needs to do this.... MLB must do this...
