Indians' Francona believes Lonnie Chisenhall can be good defender
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(1/20/15) Indians manager Terry Francona said Tuesday he thinks third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall can be a good defender this season.
"He has good reactions, a good body and plenty of arm," Francona said. "He also has a knack for making some untimely errors, a lot of time that's part of the maturation process."
Chisenhall committed 18 errors in 114 games in 2014. he also hit .280 with 13 home runs and 59 RBI.

|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(1/15/15) The Indians have avoided arbitration with infielder Lonnie Chisenhall on Thursday, according CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.
Chisenhall is set to receive $2.25 million. The 26-year-old Chisenhall is coming off a season in which he hit .280/.343/.427 over 478 at-bats. He's set to open the year as the team's starter at third.
Report: Red Sox eye Alvarez, Chisenhall as trade possibilities
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(11/14/14) The Red Sox will target Pirates third baseman Pedro Alvarez and Indians counterpart Lonnie Chisenhall as trade possibilities if their attempt to sign free agent Pablo Sandoval is unsuccessful, according to the Boston Herald.
The 27-year-old Alvarez was moved to first base last season, but prefers the hot corner, where he committed 24 throwing errors in 2014. Chisenhall also struggled mightily on defense and fizzled out at the plate after a torrid start.
Both players are arbitration-eligible. The Indians have been rumored to be seeking an upgrade at third base and are also looking to be less dependent on left-handed hitters.
Lonnie Chisenhall absent from Game 2 lineup Thursday
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(9/11/14) Third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall is catching a break in Game 2 of the Thursday doubleheader against the Twins. Mike Aviles has been penciled in at that spot.
Chisenhall singled and walked in the first game.
|2014 summary: Lonnie Chisenhall had been getting regular starts as the Indians' designated hitter when Carlos Santana went down with a concussion in mid-May, at which point he took over third base duties. Even when Santana came back, Chisenhall remained as the everyday third baseman, and for good reason. As of June 6 -- the day Santana was activated - Chisenhall was batting a crisp .361 with 15 doubles in 147 at-bats. He stayed hot for a couple more weeks, but most of the rest of the season was spent in decline. From June 7 forward, Chisenhall batted just .245 with nine home runs and 14 doubles, but it was good enough for him to hold on to his starting role.|
Playing time status: Chisenhall's lackluster finish at the plate, along with his struggles in the field, make him less than a sure thing to begin 2015 as the starting third baseman. A good spring from prospect Giovanny Urshela could push Chisenhall into a more limited role.
2015 outlook: Though there weren't many signs of it late last season, Chisenhall is a solid doubles hitter, but at age 26, there's little reason left to hope that he will develop into a major power source. What Chisenhall brings to the plate may not be enough for an Indians' team looking to improve defensively. Particularly with there being questions about Chisenhall's playing time, he may not be viable in all but the deepest of mixed leagues.
