The MLB playoffs are in full swing, though without the Miami Marlins at this point. The only thing that we can do now, is think about the off-season and catch up on all of the news coming out. Today's news are not very pleasant, CF Jazz Chisholm Jr. will get surgery today for turf toe. The surgery has not yet been confirmed by the team, but has reliable sources and is reporting this as happening.

Miami Marlins CF Jazz Chisholm Jr. is getting surgery for turf toe today.

Jazz Chisholm Jr. was moved from second base to centerfield by the Miami Marlins for this season. He delivered in his new role, producing a .250/.304/.457 batting line, with 19 home runs and 51 RBI in 97 games and 352 AB. As you can see he once again couldn't play for an entire season. In fact, the closest that he's come to that is back in 2021. He played in 124 games that season.

The surgery will keep Chisholm from running for 12 weeks. After that time, he can start wearing a shoe on that foot again and start running once again. Jazz suffered the injury when he hit the wall at loanDepot Park on May 13. He hit the wall with his toe, and initially X-rays were negative. At the time, The Fish called the injury as a "right foot contusion".

Jazz saw multiple doctors and was told to get surgery by one, and to rehab it for four weeks by the other. Jazz chose the latter option so that he could still play this season. He's now getting surgery and will rehab for the second straight off-season in a row. He actually was injured again on July 3, hitting the injured list with a left oblique strain.

Jazz Chisholm Jr. has unfortunately developed a reputation as injury-prone, and is once again dealing with an injury. I hope that he fully recovers and is ready for Spring Training, as he has immense potential to have a great season if he's fully healthy. He's still just 25 years old.
