#Jasrado “Jazz” Chisholm Jr’s power-hitting display ranks among the top at his position in all of Major League Baseball and continues to solidify his case for a National League All-Star bid.
#Chisholm Jr hit his 13th home-run of the season in the Marlins’ 11-9 win over the Philadelphia Phillies at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on Tuesday night.
#Headed into last night’s slate, his home run total tops the leaderboard for all second basemen in the MLB, just ahead of the Houston Astros’ Jose Altuve and the New York Yankees’ Gleyber Torres – tied with 12.
#He also leads the group with a .547 slugging percentage, four triples and is tied with Trevor Story of the Boston Red Sox with 41 RBI. Chisholm Jr ranks second behind Altuve with an .848 OPS.
