Jazz Chisholm
23-Year-Old Second Baseman2B
2021 Fantasy Outlook
Chisholm making his debut in the shortened season was unexpected, so the fact that he struggled in that tiny sample is close to irrelevant when assessing his long-term outlook. Miami traded Zac Gallen to Arizona for Chisholm because they were flush with good young pitching and extremely light on up-the-middle position players with high ceilings, and Chisholm's upside remains quite high. He has plus raw power, but his approach still needs a lot of work. His sprint speed was in the 81st percentile, so he is not a true burner, but is fast enough to steal 15-plus bases. Chisholm is an aggressive hitter who is overly pull happy. He typically gets to a level, struggles, and then makes the necessary adjustments. It is a testament to his hard work at the alternate site that he debuted at all despite never playing above Double-A. He will compete for time at second base and shortstop in the coming years.

Could win second base job
2BMiami Marlins
February 23, 2021
Chisholm is competing with Jon Berti and Isan Diaz for the starting second base job with the Marlins to begin the season, Barry Jackson of The Miami Herald reports.
ANALYSIS
While the team still views Chisholm as a shortstop in the long term, Miguel Rojas holds down that job for now and is making a reasonable $5 million this season, with a $5.5 million club option for 2022 that becomes guaranteed if Rojas sees 500 plate appearances this year. As a result, if Chisholm proves in camp he doesn't need any more time in the minors, he'll have to slide over to the keystone. The 23-year-old is the Marlins' No. 4 prospect but posted a disappointing .563 OPS over 21 games in his big-league debut last season.

2017
Every non-prospector who has seen Zac Gallen and only seen Chisholm's stat line thinks that 1-for-1 was a bad trade for Miami. It certainly will look that way in the short term, but the Marlins had a lot of pitching being wasted on a non-contender and severely lacked star power on the position player side. Chisholm gives them a shot at that. An above-average runner with elite bat speed who will stick at shortstop, Chisholm has physical gifts that can't be taught. He rediscovered his linedrive stroke (28.6 LD%) and cut his strikeout rate from 33.8% to 25.5% after the trade, but had already started improving before the deal -- he just had an abysmal first seven weeks at Double-A. In a down year, he hit 21 home runs and stole 16 bases as a 21-year-old playing a premium position. There may be another adjustment period at Triple-A, but Chisholm has Trevor Story-esque tools, so patience is recommended.
Bursting with tools, most notably 60-grade power, Chisholm emerged as one of the game's top shortstop prospects. A torn meniscus limited him to 29 games in 2017, but he still reached High-A before most of his peers -- only 21 of his 501 PA in 2018 came against pitchers who were younger than him. Aspects of his profile are worrisome -- he struck out a lot (29.7 K%), struggled against lefties (.218/.258/.412) and the one time he hit over .300 as a pro (at High-A), his BABIP was .443. However, he logged a 33.3 GB% while using the whole field (41.8 Pull%) with Visalia. That batted-ball profile suggests his batting average gains may be legitimate. Good instincts and quick-twitch athleticism led to a 17-for-21 stolen-base success rate. He capped his breakout campaign by hitting .442 with three homers, seven steals and eight strikeouts in 10 AFL games. Chisholm could begin his age-21 season at Double-A and has significant upward mobility.
Heading into 2017, Chisholm (who will turn 19 in February) is considered the top prospect in a depleted Arizona farm system. The lanky shortstop from the Bahamas spent last season playing at the rookie level for the Missoula Osprey. He recorded 249 at-bats in 62 games, posting a solid .281/.333/.446 slash line in the process. Chisholm showed a good mix of power (nine home runs) and speed (13 steals in 17 attempts), which was especially impressive considering he was one of the younger players in the Pioneer League. Scouts say Chisholm could stick at shortstop, but he also could add some bulk to his 165-pound frame and move off the position. As with any teenage prospect, it's hard to really say what the future holds for Chisholm. Across baseball, he's not considered an elite prospect at this point, but given the lack of depth in Arizona's system, Chisholm could be a name to watch if he continues to perform at a high level.
