Miami Marlins star is injured?!
By Neil Raymond
The Miami Marlins won the team's first season series yesterday, beating the Minnesota Twins. That was an eventful series featuring dominant pitching performances from The Fish's talented pitching rotation. There were also some concerns as well. I won't go into that much, as I've already covered this yesterday and in the preceding days. The issue at hand is that another concerning event happened during the series... an injury to star CF Jazz Chisholm Jr.
Miami Marlins CF Jazz Chisholm Jr. is injured.
The Miami Marlins are getting ready to play another series with the New York Mets, and hopefully Jazz Chisholm Jr. will be able to play. We now have more information on Jazz's injury... the star slid into second base attempting a stolen base, but his shoulder collided with Minnesota IF Kyle Farmer's leg. Jazz was clearly in pain and was removed from the game after a visit with the trainer. Obviously it was a concern considering Jazz already missed significant time last season.
In good news for the Miami Marlins and Jazz Chisholm Jr., the injury has been ruled as a "stinger" and Chisholm is considered to be day-to-day. This is of course the best possible news in this bad situation. Jazz doesn't seem to be seriously injured, and looks like he will be fine and will hopefully play during the series with the New York Mets. It may also be beneficial for him to get some early rest to hopefully stay healthy for the whole season. Bryan De La Cruz will fill in for him in CF in the meantime.
Jazz Chisholm Jr. debuted in 2020 with a .161/.242/.321 batting line in 21 games and 56 AB with 2 home runs and 6 RBI. He followed that up in 2021 with a .248/.303/.425 batting line with 18 home runs and 53 RBI. In 2022, he batted .254/.325/.535 with 14 home runs and 45 RBI in 60 games and 213 AB. He missed time in both 2021 and 2022 with injuries, but hopefully won't miss any more time this season as he seems to be right on the verge of a massive breakout.
