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. Oct 7 - 8:01 PM

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.
Sep 19 - 8:39 AM

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.
Sep 15 - 12:50 PM

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.
Aug 20 - 11:55 PM

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.
Aug 18 - 12:14 AM

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.
Aug 14 - 12:46 AM

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.
Aug 11 - 11:57 PM

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.
Aug 6 - 10:06 AM

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.
Jul 22 - 5:27 PM

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.
Jun 30 - 4:29 PM

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.
Jun 27 - 11:01 PM

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.
Jun 8 - 1:04 AM

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

Chisenhall also singled in a run, as he drove in the Tribe's only three runs of the game. The right fielder has been quite productive even as the home run ball hasn't been there prior to Tuesday, batting .292/.364/.427.
May 31 - 9:25 PM

Indians activated OF Lonnie Chisenhall from the bereavement list.

Chisenhall has been away from the team for the past four days. The Indians demoted Cody Anderson to clear a spot for him on the active roster.
