Chisholm went to high school at now-Life Preparatory Academy, in Kansas after moving from the Bahamas. The San Diego Padres and the Colorado Rockies showed some interest in Chisholm when he was in high school, but he returned to the Bahamas and attended a baseball academy for one year.
He later started attending showcases and the Diamondbacks eventually swooped in, signing him in 2015. He made his pro debut in 2016, and while playing for the Missoula Ospreys at the rookie league level, the 20-year-old grinded to a .281 batting average with nine home runs and 37 runs batted in through 62 games.
Chisholm is enjoying working with Cougars hitting coach Rick Short, and he says the coaches really push confidence in the batter's box. Chisholm is working on his timing at the plate in the early going. He's hitting .296 with a .959 OPS through seven games with two doubles, two homers and five RBIs.
"That's how you get to hit in this weather," Chisholm said. "I couldn't do it if I didn't have the confidence to do it, so I love working out with [hitting coach] Rick Short. These guys are amazing."
