The 5’11” heavy hitter started off the season with the Single-A Kane County Cougars. He hit .244 with 15 home runs and 40 Runs Batted In.

Chisholm led all Diamondbacks minor league players in home runs, and ranked among the leaders in runs (third), triples (T-fifth), RBIs (7th), slg (eighth) and walks (T-ninth).
