The Miami Marlins are doing their best to stay afloat in the NL East standings. Miami owns a disappointing 40-52 record, however, trail the first-place New York Mets by just 8.5 games.

It would be improbable, but there's plenty of baseball left in the 2021 MLB season for the Marlins to go on a run. Except, they'll need to start winning ballgames now and not later. That's why the news of potential Jazz Chisholm injury on Sunday is especially discouraging.

Chisholm left Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Phillies in just the first inning after a scary-looking potential injury while attempting to field a bloop behind the infield.

Jazz Chisholm Injury Update

It's unclear the severity or exact nature of this potential injury, but Chisholm walked off the field in obvious pain. Time will tell if the 23-year-old 2B/SS will require some time on the injured list, something that Marlins fans will want to avoid. Chisholm is slashing .252/.316/.439 this season with 11 home runs and 34 RBIs, plus 11 stolen bases.

Currently, the Marlins own just +4000 odds to win the NL East on FanDuel Sportsbook. Those aren't exactly favorable odds, but they aren't impossible, either. Miami will hope for a speedy recovery from Chisholm to help them get back in the hunt for the division crown.
