Lonnie Chisenhall was scratched from the Indians' Cactus League lineup Monday due to illness.

Indians and OF Lonnie Chisenhall avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $4.3 million contract.

He was eligible for arbitration for the second time this offseason. Chisenhall hit .286/.328/.439 with eight homers in 2016 while settling in as the Tribe's regular right fielder versus righties.

Indians manager Terry Francona said Monday that Lonnie Chisenhall (illness) was available to pinch-hit in Game 5.

Chisenhall stayed back at the team hotel for a while Sunday because he was under the weather, but he eventually got to the back and was ready to go off the bench if needed. He'll presumably be back in right field for Game 6 on Tuesday against the Cubs' Jake Arrieta.

Indians manager Terry Francona said Sunday that Lonnie Chisenhall is out of the team's lineup for Game 5 of the World Series due to illness.

It was a bit puzzling that Brandon Guyer was starting over Chisenhall on Sunday and now we have clarification as to why. Francona noted that Chisenhall is still at the team hotel, but will head to Wrigley Field and join the club closer to game time and be available to pinch-hit.

Lonnie Chisenhall went 1-for-4 and blasted a three-run homer on Friday, powering the Indians to a 6-0 victory over the Red Sox in Game 2 of the ALDS.

The win gives the Indians a decisive 2-0 lead as the series moves to Boston for Game 3 on Sunday. Manager Terry Francona seems to be pushing all of the right buttons in this one. Chisenhall drew the start in right field against left-hander David Price despite slashing just .217/.294/.348 with no homers and four RBI in 52 plate appearances against southpaws on the season. He wasted no time in this one though, getting ahead in the count 2-1 in his first at-bat before lining a game-changing blast over the wall in right field.

Lonnie Chisenhall (abdomen) went 0-for-3 in his return to the Indians' lineup on Tuesday.

Chisenhall missed pretty much all of last week due to lingering abdominal discomfort and may need a few more days off down the stretch. He's registered a decent .294/.334/.453 batting line with eight homers, 55 RBI, and six stolen bases in 118 games this season for the American League Central-leading Indians.

Lonnie Chisenhall (abdomen) grounded out as a pinch-hitter on Sunday versus the Tigers.

That was the first at-bat in six days for Chisenhall, who's been dealing with some abdominal discomfort. He should be getting close to full health, but the 27-year-old outfielder isn't exactly fantasy relevant.

Lonnie Chisenhall was scratched from the Indians' lineup Thursday with lower abdominal discomfort.

Coco Crisp will start in left field and bat leadoff against the White Sox with Abraham Almonte covering right field. Any injury is a potential season-ender at this point, but there aren't many details available. Look for an update on Chisenhall at some point Thursday afternoon-evening, though teams are often much more shy about health statuses in September.

Lonnie Chisenhall went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run in Saturday's loss to the Blue Jays.

Chisenhall capped a five-run fourth inning with his three-run jack against Blue Jays starter Aaron Sanchez. The homer was the eighth in 94 games for the 27-year-old. He's hitting .298/.342/.472 with those eight homers, 48 RBI, 35 runs scored and six stolen bases overall.

Lonnie Chisenhall went 3-for-5 with three RBI and a home run in Wednesday's loss to the White Sox.

He hit a two-run homer in the second inning to open the scoring, then added an RBI single in the third. He has a very solid .297 batting average but hasn't been able to accrue enough counting stats to bolster his fantasy value. The home run was just his eighth of the year to go with 45 RBI, 34 runs scored and six stolen bases in 92 games. Those stats simply aren't good enough to justify using him on a competitive fantasy roster.

Lonnie Chisenhall went 2-for-4 with two RBI and a stolen base in Saturday's win over the Angels.

Chisenhall knocked a two-run single in the first inning that turned out to be the difference in the game. The stolen base was his sixth of the year. It took the 27-year-old some time to gain traction at the big league level, but Chisenhall finally seems to have found some in recent years. Through Saturday, he's hitting .297/.343/.456 with six homers, 42 RBI and 33 runs scored in 89 games.

Lonnie Chisenhall went 2-for-5 with two doubles, four RBI and two runs scored in Thursday's win over the Angels.

Chisenhall plated three with a bases-loaded double in the first inning, and he drove in another run with a double in the fourth inning. The outfielder is having another strong season at the plate, batting .295/.342/.457 with six homers, 40 RBI and 33 runs scored. It's a crowded Indians outfield these days, but Chisenhall will surely keep finding playing time as long as he's hitting like this.

Lonnie Chisenhall is not in the Indians starting lineup for Saturday afternoon's contest against the Yankees.

He'll get a breather with opposing southpaw C.C. Sabathia on the mound. Abraham Almonte will draw the start in right field and bat eighth for the Tribe on Saturday.

Lonnie Chisenhall was scratched from Friday's lineup due to illness.

Indians manager Terry Francona referred to it as "intestinal turmoil." Chisenhall should be fine in a day or two. Abraham Almonte took his spot in right field.
