Lonnie Chisenhall (calf) is starting in left field and batting seventh Thursday afternoon against the Twins.

This will be the first start for Chisenhall since he re-aggravated his right calf injury back on September 14. It looks like he'll be a go for the American League Division Series, which begins in exactly one week.

Lonnie Chisenhall (calf) struck out as a pinch-hitter Wednesday night against the Twins.

It was the first plate appearance for Chisenhall since September 14. The 28-year-old outfielder has been battling a right calf injury and he is running out of time to prove his health with only four regular-season games remaining for Cleveland. Game 1 of the ALDS is exactly one week away.

Lonnie Chisenhall (calf) is back in Cleveland rehabbing.

Chisenhall hasn't appeared in a game since September 14 due to tightness in his right calf and it sounds like he will miss this weekend's series at Seattle's Safeco Field. The 28-year-old outfielder boasts an .890 OPS in 78 games this season, so the Indians will hope to get him back at some point next week before the start of the playoffs.

Lonnie Chisenhall was removed from Thursday's game due to a possible injury.

No word yet exactly what the issue is, but he may have tweaked something while making a diving catch in the first inning. Greg Allen replaced him in the Indians outfield.

Indians activated OF Lonnie Chisenhall from the 10-day disabled list.

Chisenhall has been out for nearly a month with a strained calf but played in a handful of rehab games with no issues. He could eventually be squeezed out of some playing time, but with Michael Brantley (ankle) still on the mend, Chisenhall should play regularly against righties.

Lonnie Chisenhall (calf) will continue his rehab assignment with Triple-A Columbus.

Chisenhall went 0-for-3 on Sunday in his first rehab game with Double-A Akron. The expectation is that he'll play back-to-back days on Tuesday and Wednesday before being activated on September 1.

Lonnie Chisenhall (calf) will begin a rehab assignment on Sunday.

Chisenhall will play Sunday, Tuesday and Wednesday before likely then being activated when rosters expand on September 1 if all goes well. He's been on the shelf since mid-July with a right calf strain.
Sat, Aug 26, 2017 04:32:00 PM

Lonnie Chisenhall (calf) will work out with the team on Friday.

Come Friday, team and player will discuss their next course of action. Chisenhall's been out on a minor league rehab assignment and could potentially play in one more minor league game on Sunday before he rejoins the team. A right calf strain has kept him on the shelf for more than a month.
Wed, Aug 23, 2017 04:50:00 PM

Lonnie Chisenhall (calf) went 1-for-3 with a single Sunday in his first minor league rehab game with Double-A Akron.

Chisenhall, who has missed more than a month with a right calf strain, served as the designated hitter in his return to game action. He'll likely need a few more days before being activated. The Indians recently traded for Jay Bruce, so Chisenhall's role could be in flux once Michael Brantley (ankle) returns.

Lonnie Chisenhall (calf) has yet to be cleared for game action.

Chisenhall has resumed running as he works his way back from a strained right calf, but Indians manager Terry Francona indicated Thursday that the injury isn't totally behind the outfielder yet. "Lonnie just isn’t ready to go out and play yet," said Francona. "The last hurdle is that he has to completely not feel anything (in the injured area). He’s been out running like crazy. But when you give them the freedom to play in a game and they don’t know what direction a play will take them in – he can’t feel that at all."

Indians placed OF Lonnie Chisenhall on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to July 10, with a right calf strain.

Chisenhall was injured in the club's final game before the All-Star break. It's rotten timing, as he's been terrific since the beginning of June. Tyler Naquin has replaced Chisenhall on the roster and should see starts in right field along with Brandon Guyer and Abraham Almonte.

Lonnie Chisenhall (calf) will be placed on the 10-day disabled list before Friday night's series opener against the Athletics.

Chisenhall suffered a right calf strain in the Indians' final game before the All-Star break Sunday versus the Tigers. Austin Jackson and Tyler Naquin are the candidates to replace him on Cleveland's active roster. Chisenhall has been enjoying a career year at age 28, with his .305/.376/.578 batting line, 12 home runs, and 51 RBI in 64 games.
