It's Official: Marlins Star Done For The Season

He suffered a stress fracture in his back 2 1/2 months ago, but now with time running out on the 2022 season, the Miami Marlins have officially shut down their exciting young All-Star Jazz Chisholm. 

The second baseman hasn't played since June 28th, and will continue his rehab work to ensure he's fully healthy for spring training 2023. 

The 24-year-old was selected to his first All-Star game this year, and in fact, his last appearance in a Marlins uniform actually came at batting practice during All-Star weekend. He was originally thought to have a lower-back strain. But medical tests began to show the true nature of the injury right around the time of the Mid-Summer Classic. 

Chisholm batted .254 with an .860 OPS, 14 HR, 45 RBIs and 12 SBs in the first half, earning him the All-Star nod. That followed-up an equally-sensational rookie season, in which he hit 18 HR and stole 23 bases.
