Lonnie Chisenhall finished 3-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored Monday as the Indians beat the White Sox.

That's his second straight 3-for-4 performance. Chisenhall is batting .317 with a .391 on-base percentage in 46 plate appearances this season, and we should see a little more power as he moves further away from the calf strain that cost him nearly two months. There's considerable upside here in AL-only fantasy leagues.
