The Marlins placed Jazz Chisholm on the 10-day injured list on Tuesday with turf toe.
Chisholm’s stay on the injured list is retroactive to May 14. The Marlins appeared to be hopeful that Chisholm would avoid the IL but with him out of the lineup on Tuesday it made the decision easier.
The 25-year-old Chisholm was injured after making contact with the outfield wall in Saturday’s contest with the Reds. Speaking with reporters Marlins manager Skip Schumaker said Chisholm would be out 4-6 weeks.
Though 39 games this season Chisholm is hitting .229/.291/.403 with seven home runs. While Chisholm’s average and slugging have dropped his stolen bases (14) has already topped his total from a year ago (12).
With Chisholm out of action the Marlins are playing Garrett Hampson in center field today. In his career Hampson has appeared in 182 games at the position.
