Chisholm has more power than most shortstops because he has explosive bat speed and natural loft in his left-handed swing. Rather than let home runs come naturally, he employs an overly aggressive approach that depresses his batting average and leads to a ton of strikeouts. He was more pull-happy in 2019 than he had been in the past, though a career-high 11 percent walk rate offers some hope than he can adopt a more disciplined plan at the plate.It was a baseball delight to watch Jazz playing for the Miami Marlin major league team especially those two home runs. Plusthe web gems at short stop and second base which made ESPN’s top 10 players. Topping it of with double in the playoff that was inches away from another home run. We are looking forward to watching you play many more games at the MLB Level.
