Lonnie Chisenhall is not in the Indians starting lineup for Thursday's matchup against R.A. Dickey and the Blue Jays.

It's simply a day of rest for the hot-hitting Chisenhall who is hitting .424 (14-for-33) with three homers and 10 RBI in his last eight games. Tyler Naquin will start in right field and bat seventh for the Tribe on Thursday.

Lonnie Chisenhall singled and lifted a three-run homer in Monday's win over the Braves.

Chisenhall's longball off of Tyrell Jenkins in the fourth inning put the Indians ahead for good. It was his second straight game with a homer, and Chisenhall now has 11 hits over his last six games. His batting line for the season is suddenly up to .295/.355/.470.

Lonnie Chisenhall went 2-for-3 with a double and a solo home run in Tuesday's loss to the Mariners.

Chisenhall essentially was the Indians' offense. Not only did his solo home run off Joaquin Benoit in the eighth inning represent his squad's only run in the 7-1 defeat, his double stood as their only other extra base hit. The 27-year-old outfielder missed the first couple of weeks of the season due to forearm soreness, but has rebounded from the late start to hit .288/.358/.450 with two homers, 11 RBI and three steals in 111 at-bats.

Lonnie Chisenhall went 3-for-4 with a two-run homer in Tuesday's loss to the Rangers.

Lonnie Chisenhall went 3-for-4 with two runs scored and a stolen base Saturday against the Phillies.

Making his first start after missing two games with a neck strain, Chisenhall enjoyed his best game yet. He doubled among his three hits and stole his first base of the season. Through seven games played, the 27-year-old is batting .227/.227/.364.

Lonnie Chisenhall (neck) is not in the lineup for Wednesday's contest with the Twins.

Chisenhall was lifted from Tuesday's game with the Twins in the bottom of the fifth inning after he strained his neck while attempting to make a diving catch. Marlon Byrd takes his place in right field on Wednesday and is batting eighth. We could see Chisenhall back in action when the Indians face the Phillies this weekend.

Chisenhall suffered the strain on a diving catch attempt in the bottom of the fifth inning and was replaced in right field by Marlon Byrd. He's day-to-day for now.

Lonnie Chisenhall played center field in his final rehab game and could be an option to play there with the Indians.

The Indians planned to give Chisenhall a test drive in center field during spring training, but he never got the chance due to injury. He didn't begin playing right field until midseason last year, but he took to the position quickly and manager Terry Francona thinks Chisenhall could handle center. "Looking at Lonnie’s skill-set, he should be able to play center field," Francona said. "And by everybody’s scouting report, he did fine. You just never know. It’s almost like every time you have a backup player on the bench, you want to make sure he can play shortstop. Having another guy that can play center field, whether we pinch hit, it may allow us to pinch hit more often or make a move."

Indians activated OF Lonnie Chisenhall from the 15-day disabled list.

Chisenhall missed the first few weeks of the season with discomfort in his right forearm. He struggled on his minor league rehab assignment, going 2-for-23 in seven games, but the 27-year-old should get regular playing time against right-handed pitching in Cleveland. He is starting in right field and batting seventh Wednesday versus Mariners righty Taijuan Walker.
Apr 20 - 2:06 PM

Lonnie Chisenhall (forearm) is on track to be activated from the disabled list on Wednesday.

He'll play in two more rehab games with Double-A Akron on Monday and Tuesday before being activated, assuming all goes well. Chisenhall has just one hit in his first 15 at-bats while on a rehab assignment. He'll be the Indians' regular right fielder against right-handed pitching once activated.
Apr 17 - 11:08 AM

Lonnie Chisenhall (forearm) is 0-for-5 with a sac fly through two games at Triple-A Columbus.

Chisenhall was placed on the disabled list at the end of spring training after battling forearm soreness for much of March. He's still getting his timing right at the plate, and the Indians don't plan on rushing that process given how bad he looked in the Cactus League. The third baseman and corner outfielder probably won't be activated until next week.
Apr 13 - 9:37 AM

Lonnie Chisenhall (forearm) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Thursday with Triple-A Columbus.

Chisenhall was forced to begin the season on the disabled list with a right forearm injury, but he's expected to be back by April 12. Collin Cowgill and Marlon Byrd will handle right field for the time being.
