Lonnie Chisenhall hit a three-run homer off the Reds' Alfredo Simon in the Indians' win Monday.

After hitting .209 with one homer in 86 at-bats in July, Chisenhall has started August with two homers in four games. He's run hot and cold all year, but maybe this is the start of a new streak for him.
Aug 4 - 10:12 PM

Lonnie Chisenhall hit his tenth homer of the season on Friday against the Rangers.

In a game where the Indians had sixteen hits and put up twelve runs, Chisenhall's home run was somehow only one of three extra-base hits. It's nice to see the home run, as Chisenhall was ice cold in July, hitting just .209/.313/.256. On the whole, he's still slashing a respectable .309/.375/.479, which tells you just how spectacular those first three months of the season were.

Lonnie Chisenhall went 0-for-4 at the plate in his return to the lineup Tuesday.

Chisenhall missed the previous two contests due to illness, but it shouldn't be an issue going forward. The third baseman his hit just .219/.318/.307 over 38 contests since his three-homer game back on June 9.
Jul 30 - 5:44 AM

Lonnie Chisenhall (illness) remained out of the Indians' lineup Sunday.

Chisenhall has missed two straight games due to intestinal issues. He should be fine Tuesday after Monday's off day. Mike Aviles is at third base Sunday.
Jul 27 - 1:16 PM

Lonnie Chisenhall has been scratched from the lineup Saturday versus the Royals due to illness.

He should be fine after a day or two of rest. Chisenhall has regressed some but still owns a batting line of .313/.382/.480 with nine home runs and 41 RBI on the season.
Jul 26 - 6:56 PM

Lonnie Chisenhall went 1-for-4 with a walk, a two-run homer and two runs scored in Tuesday's 10-3 win versus the Dodgers.

The young third baseman has come out of nowhere to become one of baseball's most consistent offensive performers this year. He posted a .901 OPS while only receiving 47 at-bats as a part-timer in April, put up a monster 1.020 OPS over 83 at-bats in his coming out party in May, and held strong with a .920 OPS in 90 June at-bats. We can't anticipate that he'll continue to slap up .900-plus OPS' each month, but this is certainly a nice start to July.
Jul 2 - 1:42 AM

Lonnie Chisenhall singled off Felix Hernandez in the fifth inning on Sunday, providing what would be the Tribe's lone hit in a losing effort against the Mariners.

Chisenhall finished the afternoon 1-for-3. He has been an absolute force at the plate this season, slashing .350/.404/.562 with eight homers and 36 RBI in his first 66 games, taking control of the team's starting job at third base.
Jun 29 - 8:14 PM

Lonnie Chisenhall went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's loss to the Angels.

After a torrid start to the month of June, Chisenhall had hit the skids, going hitless in 16 plate appearances over his last four games. He broke out of it, homering off of Matt Shoemaker in the fourth inning for his eighth of the season. If he had enough plate appearances to qualify, Chisenhall would be the league's leading hitter. He's slashing .368/.420/.589 with 33 RBI in 209 PA.

Lonnie Chisenhall went 0-for-4 with a strikeout Friday against the Red Sox.

It looks like he's human after all. Chisenhall's 0-fer snapped a nine-game hitting streak. He's still hitting .384 through 54 games.
Jun 13 - 11:13 PM

Lonnie Chisenhall turned in a career game Monday, going 5-for-5 with three homers and nine RBI as the Indians destroyed the Rangers 17-7.

That's a career game for just about anyone. Since 1914, the only other players with five hits, three homers and nine RBI in a game were Cincinnati's Walker Cooper in 1949 (6-for-7, 3 HR, 10 RBI), Brooklyn's Gil Hodges in 1950 (5-for-6, 4 HR, 9 RBI) and Boston's Fred Lynn in 1975 (5-for-6, 3 HR, 10 RBI). Even throwing out the other requirements, he's the first guy to drive in nine runs in a game since the Mets' Carlos Delgado in 2008. He's the first Indian to hit three homers since Shin-Soo Choo in 2010 and the first to drive in nine runs since Chris James in 1991.
Jun 10 - 12:50 AM

Lonnie Chisenhall went 2-for-4 with two runs scored in Sunday's win over the Rangers.

Chisenhall continues to swing a hot bat, as he's hit in six straight games and eight of his last nine. That includes five multi-hit games that have raised his line to .365/.413/.538. It appears that the 25-year-old is finally paying off on the promise he's showed for years.
Jun 8 - 8:04 PM

Lonnie Chisenhall belted his fourth home run of the season in Friday's loss to the Rangers.

Chisenhall's three-run blast off the foul pole in right field came off Yu Darvish in the third inning to get the Indians on the board. He finished the night 1-for-3 plus a walk and is now hitting a scorching .361/.411/.544 with four homers and 22 RBI on the season.
Jun 6 - 11:36 PM

Lonnie Chisenhall went 2-for-4 with two RBI against the Rockies on Friday.

Chisenhall delivered an RBI single in the first inning and capped a four-run rally in the fourth inning with an RBI double. The 25-year-old has been red-hot at the plate so far this season, batting .362/.418/.528 through 42 games. He has benefited from an abnormally high BABIP, but should remain a useful CI (corner infielder) option in deeper mixed leagues as long as Carlos Santana (concussion) is on the DL.
May 30 - 10:42 PM

Lonnie Chisenhall continued to pound the baseball, going 2-for-5 with a double in Saturday's victory over the Orioles.

Chisenhall also drove home a run and scored a run on the afternoon. He's now hitting a robust .382/.443/.564 on the season to go with a pair of homers and eight RBI. At this point, he should be owned in all mixed leagues.
