Update: Chisholm is considered day-to-day with a right shoulder stinger, per the team. He is currently getting treatment, but for now, this appears to be good news for the outfielder. If it is truly only a stinger in the shoulder, it comes down to pain management and when Chisholm is able to feel good enough to get back onto the field or into the batter’s box.

Miami Marlins CF Jazz Chisholm left Wednesday’s game against the Minnesota Twins early after getting injured during a slide into second base. Chisholm was trying to steal second but left first a little early, and Twins pitcher Pablo Lopez was able to step off and get him at second base, where Chisholm picked up the injury on his head-first slide. He left the field because he was out but was also removed from the lineup and replaced by Bryan De La Cruz.

The 25-year-old Chisholm was moved from second to centerfield this season. While the change to the outfield hasn’t been much of an issue, he hasn’t really taken off at the plate. He went into Wednesday’s game 3 for 20 on the year with a single, double and solo home run in six games. Chisholm had singled to begin the home half of the first inning but then was caught stealing and injured prior to a home run by Jorge Soler to put Miami up 1-0.

It’s tough to tell exactly what Chisholm injured and how severe it could be. From the clip, it looked like it could be a head or a shoulder injury. There have also been reports that due to Jazz flexing his hand, it could have been a nerve pinch in the shoulder or arm region.

Chisholm would be a huge loss for the Miami lineup if he misses any significant time. He struggled with injuries a season ago and played in only 60 games. In limited work, Chisholm hit .254 with 10 doubles, 14 home runs and 45 RBI. De La Cruz would likely take over in center field, allowing the Marlins to have some flexibility between Jorge Soler, Avisail Garcia and Jesus Sanchez for the corner outfield spots and the team’s DH.
