Marlins’ Jazz Chisholm expresses displeasure with not being in lineup one day after clutch HR


We’re one game into the season and there already appears to be drama in the Marlins’ clubhouse.

Here’s the situation: Miami shortstop Jazz Chisholm Jr. — considered to be one of the team’s best young player — hit a clutch home run in the ninth inning on Friday, giving the Marlins a one-run lead they’d eventually squander. After rounding the bases, Chisholm did a euro step before touching home plate (video above).

On Saturday, Chisholm was not in the Miami lineup. This led to some interesting behavior on Twitter from the 24-year-old, who made his displeasure known by retweeting and liking a series of tweets that criticized the decision.

For the sake of fairness, it should be noted that the Giants have left-hander Carlos Rodon on the hill. Chisholm is a left-handed batter, and has a .694 career OPS against lefties as opposed to a .731 OPS vs. righties. Miguel Rojas, who took Chisholm’s place in the lineup, has a .749 career OPS vs. lefties.
