Miami Marlins Send Chargois to Jacksonville on Rehab Assignment

 JACKSONVILLE - Miami Marlins’ right-handed pitcher JT Chargois will begin an injury rehabilitation assignment for the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp in Sunday’s 3:05 p.m. contest against the Norfolk Tides from 121 Financial Ballpark.

Chargois appeared in 46 games in 2023 for Miami. The righty was slated to be a part of the Marlins 2024 Opening Day roster before a neck injury placed him on the 15-day injured list (retroactive to March 25). 

A native of Sulphur, La., the Marlins acquired Chargois and Xavier Edwards on November 15, 2022 in a trade with the Tampa Bay Rays in exchange for Marcus Johnson and Santiago Suarez. Chargois appeared in 46 games with Miami last season, going 1-0 with a 3.61 ERA in 42.1 innings. He also made three rehab appearances with Jacksonville in 2023, tossing 3.2 scoreless innings.


Chargois was originally selected in the second round of the 2012 draft by the Minnesota Twins. He made his debut in June of 2016 with Minnesota and pitched in 25 games that season.


Chargois played in the Twins’ system for six years before being claimed on waivers on February 23, 2018 by the Los Angeles Dodgers. He split time between Los Angeles and Triple-A Oklahoma City during his time in the organization.


Following two seasons with the Dodgers, Chargois took his talents overseas in 2020 and pitched with the Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles of Nippon Professional Baseball. He made his return stateside in 2021 by signing a minor league contract with the Seattle Mariners. He spent the 2021 season with both Seattle and Tampa Bay and had a career year, tossing a career-high 53.1 innings with a 3.00 ERA and a WHIP of 0.94. He remained with the Rays in 2022 and appeared in an additional 46 games with the club.


Over his eight-year big league career, Chargois has appeared in 208 games, accumulating 13 wins and an ERA of 3.55. He has appeared in five postseason games and has a career opponents batting average of .231.


Chargois is the fourth Marlins player to embark on an injury rehabilitation assignment with Jacksonville (Edward Cabrera, March 31-April 15; Braxton Garrett, April 5-present; Christian Bethancourt, April 19-present).
