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.

Lonnie Chisenhall was forced to leave Sunday's game against the Tigers due to a right calf injury.

It's unclear exactly how Chisenhall sustained the injury or the severity of it. Brandon Guyer replaced him in right field. The club should provide an update on his status after the game, but with several off-days upcoming it seems unlikely he would require a trip to the disabled list.
Jul 9 - 10:12 PM

Lonnie Chisenhall clubbed his 11th home run of the season as the Indians dispatched of the Tigers in Detroit on Sunday.

His two-run blast off of Justin Verlander gave the Tribe a 2-0 lead in the second inning and they wouldn't look back. Chisenball finished the afternoon 1-for-2 plus three walks and a pair of runs scored. He's slashing an impressive .305/.382/.581 with 11 homers and 46 RBI on the season.
Jul 2 - 5:17 PM

Lonnie Chisenhall went 3-for-5 with a go-ahead two-run single in Monday's comeback win from down seven runs against the Rangers.

The Rangers held a 9-3 lead over the Indians after four innings, but the Tribe clawed their way back over the next two frames. They plated four runs in the fifth inning and five more in the sixth, with the key hit coming courtesy of Chisenhall, who worked a go-ahead two-run single which jumped the Indians from a 9-8 deficit to a 10-9 advantage. Cleveland would ultimately win by a 15-9 final score in one of the more remarkable swings on the scoreboard this season. For the season as a whole, Chisenhall is hitting .311/.373/.589 with 10 homers and 40 RBI across 151 at-bats this season. He has picked up multiple hits in five of his last 10 games.

Lonnie Chisenhall ripped two hits Sunday in the Indians’ loss to the Twins.

Chisenhall entered the game 1-for-20 lifetime against Santana but got the better of him with two hits in three at-bats on Sunday. The 28-year-old has raked this month, batting an absurd .370 over 54 June at-bats. He’s slashing a noteworthy .301/.366/.589 for the year.

Lonnie Chisenhall smacked home runs No. 9 and 10 in Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader victory in Minnesota, finishing with four RBI.

Chisenhall has posted 11 RBI over his past four games, and he has five multi-hit performances in 10 contests in the month of June. He has raised his average from .261 to .288 since returning from the 7-day concussion disabled list on June 6.

Lonnie Chisenhall had a three-run homer and a two-run single off the bench Thursday as the Indians beat the Dodgers 12-5.

Chisenhall hit for Austin Jackson in the fifth when Ross Stripling took over for Rich Hill on the mound and immediately launched his eighth homer. He's the second player this year to drive in five runs off the bench; Baltimore's Trey Mancini did it eight days ago. He's the first Indian to do so since John Ellis in 1973.

Lonnie Chisenhall (concussion), fresh off the 7-day concussion disabled list, finished 2-for-3 with a solo home run in Tuesday's game in Colorado.

It's always nice to come off the DL and find yourself in a favorable hitter's park. He is slashing .274/.343/.579 and is a nice, cheap source of power in AL-only leagues and DFS play. However, fantasy owners might want to avoid him for Wednesday's afternoon game with LHP Kyle Freeland on the bump.
Jun 7 - 12:36 AM

Indians activated OF Lonnie Chisenhall from the 7-day concussion disabled list.

Chisenhall suffered the concussion on May 22. The 28-year-old was sporting a cool .877 OPS with six home runs and 22 RBI through 33 games this season and will start in right field in his return to action Tuesday night at Coors Field. Bradley Zimmer is in center.
Jun 6 - 4:55 PM

Lonnie Chisenhall (concussion) will be activated from the disabled list Monday.

Jun 4 - 12:19 PM

Lonnie Chisenhall (concussion) has been cleared to return to game action.

He'll play in the outfield at Double-A Akron on Saturday. Barring any setbacks, he should be ready to rejoin the Indians at some point next week.
