Jacob Shawn Marisnick (born March 30, 1991) is an American professional baseball outfielder who is a free agent. He has played in Major League Baseball (MLB) for the Miami Marlins, Houston Astros and New York Mets. The Toronto Blue Jays drafted Marisnick in the third round of the 2009 MLB draft.

Early career

Marisnick attended Riverside Polytechnic High School in Riverside, California.[1] He excelled for the school's baseball team, and was initially expected to be a first-round choice in the upcoming Major League Baseball (MLB) Draft. However, he struggled during showcase events, and had a .406 batting average as a senior, lower than his batting average in his sophomore and junior years.[2] He committed to attend the University of Oregon on a college baseball scholarship.[3]

The Toronto Blue Jays drafted Marisnick in the third round of the 2009 MLB draft. Rather than attend Oregon, Marisnick signed with the Blue Jays, receiving a $1 million signing bonus, more than double the suggested bonus for a player drafted at that position.[4]

Before the 2012 season, rated Marisnick as the 58th-best prospect in baseball.[5] On November 19, 2012, Marisnick was traded to the Miami Marlins along with Adeiny Hechavarria, Henderson Álvarez, Yunel Escobar, Jeff Mathis, Anthony DeSclafani, and Justin Nicolino, in exchange for Mark Buehrle, Josh Johnson, José Reyes, John Buck, and Emilio Bonifacio.[6] On January 29, 2013, Marisnick was named number 70 on MLB's Top 100 Prospects list.[7]

Major league career

Miami Marlins

On July 23, 2013, the Marlins promoted Marisnick and Christian Yelich to the major leagues from the Double-A Jacksonville Suns.[8] Marisnick recorded his first major league hit on July 26, 2013, off Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher Jeff Locke.[9] Marisnick hit his first career home run in a game against the New York Mets on July 31, 2013.

The Marlins optioned Marisnick to the New Orleans Zephyrs of the Class AAA Pacific Coast League on March 27, 2014.[10] He was recalled on June 16 when Christian Yelich was added to the disabled list.[11]

Houston Astros

On July 31, 2014, the Marlins traded Marisnick, Colin Moran, Francis Martes, and a compensatory draft pick to the Houston Astros for Jarred Cosart, Enrique Hernández, and Austin Wates.[12] Marisnick played in 51 games for the Astros in 2014, compiling a batting average of .272 with 3 home runs, 19 RBI, and 6 stolen bases. He also displayed strong defense while playing the outfield, with a fielding percentage of .984 and a range factor of 2.57.

He made his first opening day MLB start for the Astros on April 6, 2015. He finished the 2015 season with an average of .236 and OPS of .665 over 133 games and 339 at bats.

After a slow start to the 2016 season he was optioned to the Triple-A affiliate of the Astros, the Fresno Grizzlies of the Pacific Coast League, on April 25, 2016.

Marisnick was recalled by the Houston Astros on May 5, 2016. After former Astros center fielder Carlos Gómez was designated for assignment, Marisnick and Tony Kemp began sharing center field duties in his place.

In 106 games of 2017, Marisnick finished with a .243 batting average, 16 home runs, and 35 RBIs. With the Astros finishing the year 101–61, the team clinched the AL West pennant, and eventually won the 2017 World Series, their first ever. Marisnick did not participate in any postseason action due to injury, but was still on the 40-man roster at the time, and won his first championship title.[13]

On July 7, 2018, he was sent down to AAA for the second time in the season, after struggling at the plate. In 2018 with Houston he batted .211/.275/.399.

On July 7, 2019, while trying to score on a fly out, Marisnick collided with catcher Jonathan Lucroy of the Los Angeles Angels at home plate and was called out for violating Official Baseball Rule 6.01(i). Lucroy had a concussion and a broken nose as a result of the collision,[14] and Marisnick was suspended for two games for the violation (pending appeal), although the collision was deemed unintentional.[15] On July 18, 2019, at an away game against the Angels, Marisnick was hit by a pitch by Angels reliever Noé Ramirez in the high back, though the pitch was going for his head. Marisnick did not charge the mound or retaliate but went to 1st base. At first base first baseman Albert Pujols had an argument with the angered Astros dugout. Ramirez and Angels manager Brad Ausmus were suspended, Ramirez for three games and Ausmus for one. On July 29 it was announced that Marisnick had lost his appeal for his two-game suspension.

In 2019 he batted .233/.289/.411 with 10 home runs and 34 RBIs in 292 at bats.[16]

New York Mets

On December 5, 2019, Marisnick was traded to the New York Mets in exchange for left-handed pitcher Blake Taylor and outfielder Kenedy Corona.[17]
