4 Years after Marlins/Diamond Backs Trade on July 31st, 2019. D.Backs Jazz Chisholm for Marlins Zac Gallen
Chisholm & Gallen Trade 4Yrs Later:
July 31, 2019: The Miami Marlins acquired shortstop Jazz Chisholm from the Arizona Diamondbacks in exchange for RHP Zac Gallen. As a coach coaching against Jazz Chisholm, you had no choice but to admire his confidence. So, when the news came that He was traded to the Miami Marlins from the Diamondbacks, it was a big YES for me. Finally, Jazz is only a 35-minute flight from home; whenever he gets to the Major Leagues, we will be in the stands shouting, let go, JAZZ!
Moreover, this trade saw SS Jazz Chisholm assigned to Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp, where he joined Anfernee Seymour, who both played baseball at Freedom Farm Baseball League in Nassau, Bahamas. Seymour opted for free agency after the 2019 season.
Chisholm & Gallen Trade 4yrs Later. At the time of the trade, Jazz Chisholm was the D-Backs #3 Prospect and MLB #59th, playing at the double-A level. Meanwhile, Zac Gallen was the Marlins’ #19 Prospect, playing at the Triple-A level.
Both players have fitted right into their new team’s plans for their franchises. Then came 2020, a new team, and new teammates, then the season was delayed to a new starting date. All players had to leave their spring training facilities and social distancing as the country went into lockdown. The 2020 season date was set for July 23, 2020.
Chisholm & Gallen Trade 4Yrs Later. Zac Gallen was traded as an MLB Player, while Jazz Chisholm Jr. got his chance 0n September 1, 2020, and the whole Bahamas was celebrating. Moreover, had it not been for the lockdowns, we would have all traveled to Jazz’s first game as a Marlins’.
Both Players made the All-Star:
After a productive 2021 MLB season, Jazz won the starting 2nd base job in spring training for the 2022 season. He displayed his speed, power, and good defense on the field at second base and shortstop.
With the Marlins making some key trades in 2023, Jazz moved to Center Field to make room for All-Star second baseman Luis Arraez. So, he can use all that speed running down fly balls in the outfield. (I never thought I would see this day.); well, so far, so good for Centerfielder Jazz Chisholm Jr.
Meanwhile, Zac spent some time on the disabled list. However, he did get into 23 games with one start.
Zac Gallen was named the 2023 National League All-Star starter and pitched one inning, giving up one hit and striking out one batter in the three batters he faced. (Great Job).
Jazz Chisholm Jr., A 2022 All-Star selection, and Zac Gallen, A 2023 All-Star Selection. However, due to injury, Jazz did not get to play in the All-Star Game, but he was there for the All-Star festivities.

The 2023 Season is looking very productive for both Players:
In short, the Diamondbacks and the Marlins are in the National League wildcard run for the playoffs. Strap on your seat belts; this will be a mad dash to the wild card playoffs.
Good Luck, Gentlemen.
