Marlins' Star Second Baseman Receives Troubling CT Scan Results


A CT scan on Miami Marlins' second baseman Jazz Chisholm Jr. revealed a stress fracture in his back, per Craig Mish of the Miami Herald.

The timetable for this sort of injury is normally about six weeks.

This news comes after Chisholm was reported last week as doing all baseball activities, and that a return to game action was imminent. However, the twenty-four-year-old underwent a follow-up scan to make sure everything looked good, which revealed the fracture. 

Chisholm was having a career season, batting .254/.535/.860, with 14 home runs, 45 RBIs, and 12 stolen bases across 60 games.

The second baseman has already missed nearly a month of action with his back issue, and now it's likely the injury will keep him out of action until September.
