Jazz Chisholm Jr. News
The Miami Marlins will move second baseman Jazz Chisholm Jr. to center field this year, according to general manager Kim Ng. Chisholm has played exclusively as a second baseman and shortstop during his major-league career, but All-Star second baseman Luis Arraez will now take over after being acquired from the Minnesota Twins on Friday, with Jean Segura manning third base. Instead of moving to shortstop, the 24-year-old Chisholm will gain outfield eligibility for fantasy managers in 2023, in addition to second base. It will make him even more attractive in fantasy after an All-Star season in 2022 that saw him hit .254/.325/.535 with a career-high .860 OPS, 14 home runs, 45 RBI, 39 runs scored and 12 stolen bases in just 60 games played due to injury.
When asked if Miami Marlins infielder Jazz Chisholm Jr. will get any run at shortstop in 2023, general manager Kim Ng said, "We haven't decided yet." Chisholm was the team's full-time second baseman in 2022 and earned his first All-Star nod in his third season in the majors. But after the team sent shortstop Miguel Rojas to the Los Angeles Dodgers on Wednesday, there's an opening at the 6 in Miami. Chisholm's natural position is at shortstop, but the recently signed Jean Segura and Joey Wendle are also candidates to play shortstop next season. Ultimately, keeping Chisholm at the keystone might be the safest option after he played only 60 games in 2022 due to back and knee injuries. Defensive position aside, the 24-year-old has plenty of offensive upside with 34 homers, 104 RBI and 37 stolen bases in his first three MLB campaigns.
Miami Marlins shortstop Jazz Chisholm Jr. (knee, back) underwent surgery to repair a torn meniscus Friday. He had been ruled out for the remainder of the season due to a stress fracture in his back. The 24-year-old also played through a torn meniscus and underwent surgery on Friday. He is expected to be ready by Spring Training. Chisholm slashed .254/.325/.535 with 14 home runs, 45 RBI, 39 runs, and 12 stolen bases over 60 games in 2022.
The young Marlins middle-infielder had a strong rookie campaign in 2021, slashing .248/.303/.425 with 18 homers and 23 steals. The 28.6% K% and 49% GB% limited his upside, but it was a useful start to a career and the steals kept him very much in play for fantasy. It was looking like he had taken a big step forward in 2022, slashing .254/.325/.535 for 60 games before losing the rest of his season to injury. Jazz's barrel rate over that short sample was 16.6% and he had dropped the GB% substantially to 39%. All things considered, Chisholm has all of the makings of a 30-homer, 30-steal player, and it should come without an awful batting average given the speed and quality of contact. The Marlins lineup will probably be mediocre once again, but it's going to be tough for Jazz to not be a huge impact-maker in fantasy this year provided he can stay healthy. At the very least you have good power and lots of speed, and the upside is first-round production. He costs a top-50 pick in most drafts, but the skills and ceiling are well worth it.
