Indians optioned 3B Lonnie Chisenhall to Triple-A Columbus.
Chisenhall had a highly productive first half in 2014, but it's been mostly downhill from there and he was sporting a .207 batting average and .585 OPS through 52 games this season. Giovanny Urshela has been called up to help cover the vacancy at third base. He's a maestro defensively but probably won't carry much in the way of fantasy value. Look for Chisenhall to get another shot later this summer. Jun 8 - 8:48 AM

The 26-year-old has had a nice spring at the plate, hitting .302 (16-for-53), though he has yet to homer and has driven in only five runs. Hitting near the bottom of the Tribe's lineup, he's considered one of the lower-end options at third base in mixed league drafts.

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.

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.
