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.

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.

Indians placed OF Lonnie Chisenhall on the 7-day concussion disabled list.

The move was made retroactive to May 23. Chisenhall hadn't played since Monday while dealing with what manager Terry Francona described as a "lower-grade" concussion. Francona added that Chisenhall has complained of feeling "groggy." We're still waiting on the corresponding roster move.
