Lonnie Chisenhall homered for the Indians' only run Saturday against the A's.
Chisenhall is 4-for-11 in three games since returning to the majors Thursday. Since he's likely to keep on starting in the outfield against righties, he should be a nice AL-only option the rest of the way. Aug 2 - 1:48 AM

Lonnie Chisenhall went 3-for-4 with a double and a steal as the Indians' right fielder on Friday.

Chisenhall will get a chance to take some of David Murphy's at-bats, though how much playing he receives will hinge on what happens with Nick Swisher following his return. Ideally, Chisenhall would be in there pretty regularly against right-handers the rest of the way before the Indians have to decide whether to tend him a contract for 2016.

Indians recalled INF Lonnie Chisenhall from Triple-A Columbus.

With Brandon Moss shipped out of town, Chisenhall could see some action in the corner outfield, where he had been working in the minors. Unless he finds everyday at-bats though, his fantasy value is limited to AL-only formats.
Jul 30 - 7:00 PM

Buster Olney of ESPN reports that Lonnie Chisenhall is available for a trade.

Chisenhall has been on a steep decline since his roaring first half of the 2014 season, and the Indians finally shipped him to Triple-A Columbus last month. The 26-year-old does have some defensive versatility and decent career numbers against right-handed pitching. Maybe he'll draw some interest from a team looking to bolster its bench.

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

Lonnie Chisenhall finished 3-for-5 with a homer, a double and three RBI Wednesday versus the Rangers.

Chisenhall has been a big disappointment, but there's still plenty of time for him to turn it around. Fortunately for him, the Indians don't have anyone else they want to break in at third base.
May 27 - 3:13 PM

Lonnie Chisenhall is not in the Indians' lineup Friday.

The Indians are going with switch-hitter Zach Walters against lefty Wandy Rodriguez. Chisenhall has just two hits in his last 21 at-bats.
May 15 - 4:47 PM

Lonnie Chisenhall smacked a three-run homer in Sunday's win over the Twins.

Batting from the cleanup spot, Chisenhall's shot with two outs in the fourth inning broke the game open, increasing the Indians' lead from 3-1 to 6-1. It was his only hit of the day and he's batting just .238/.284/.396 for the season, but Chisenhall has been moved up in the Tribe's batting order of late as the club looks to spark the offense.
May 10 - 4:33 PM

Lonnie Chisenhall went 2-for-4 with a pair of RBI in Wednesday's win over the White Sox.

Chisenhall's two-run double in the fourth inning proved to plate the winning RBI for the Tribe. He also added a single in the game. The two-hit contest was Chisenhall's first of the season, as he's batting just .227/.292/.273 in the early going.
Apr 15 - 3:36 PM

Lonnie Chisenhall is not in Tuesday's lineup against the White Sox.

He's taking a seat against left-hander Jose Quintana. Mike Aviles will start at third base and bat second.
Apr 14 - 2:37 PM

Lonnie Chisenhall drove home a pair of runs with an RBI triple on Friday, but it wasn't enough for the Indians to overcome the Brewers in Cactus League action.

He finished the afternoon 2-for-3 and also scored a pair of runs. 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.
Apr 3 - 7:21 PM

Lonnie Chisenhall delivered an RBI double in the seventh inning on Sunday, leading the Indians to a 4-2 victory over the Dodgers in Cactus League action.

His RBI knock off Chris Hatcher capped off a three-run rally in the seventh inning that gave the Tribe the lead. It was Chisenhall's lone hit in three trips to the plate on the afternoon and his first RBI in Cactus League play. He's having a nice spring to date, slashing .286/.375/.464 in 28 at-bats.
Mar 22 - 9:25 PM

Indians and 3B Lonnie Chisenhall avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $2.25 million contract.

It's a nice raise for Chisenhall in what was his first year of arbitration eligibility. Although he slowed down in the second half, Chisenhall had a mini-breakout in 2014, batting .280/.343/.427 with 13 homers and 59 RBI.
Jan 15 - 10:42 PM

Lonnie Chisenhall went 2-for-4 and drove home a run in Friday's loss to the Tigers.

Chisenhall doubled home Jason Giambi in the ninth inning with the game well out of reach already. He has had an up-and-down type of season, but on the whole his .291/.353/.456 slash line with 13 homers and 58 RBI looks very strong in 127 games.

Lonnie Chisenhall went 2-for-4 with a homer and three RBI in the Indians' loss to the Angels on Monday.

Chisenhall slugged a two-run homer in the fifth inning off Angels starter Jered Weaver and then got to Weaver again in the sixth for an RBI single. "Lonnie Baseball" has slowed down considerably since his exceptional first half, but he still boasts a strong .291/.354/.459 overall season slash line with 13 homers and 55 RBI in 123 games.
