Lonnie Chisenhall starting to cool off in July


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/14/2014) Indians third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall is in the midst of the best offensive performance of his career, but he's cooled off in July, hitting just .238/.360/.310 with one home run and five RBI in 42 at-bats.

Chisenhall exploded at the plate during the first few weeks of the season to lock himself into regular playing time, and he's maintained solid numbers through the rest of the first half, but his OPS is down to .908 going into the break after the third baseman had a 1.057 OPS on June 11. Even with the slow July, Chisenhall has hit .328/.392/.515 with nine home runs and 41 RBI in 262 at-bats.

Lonnie Chisenhall in Thursday lineup against lefty


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/19/2014) An outcry was raised last week when Terry Francona benched sizzling third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall against Boston left-hander Jon Lester. Chisenhall did not have another hit until homering Tuesday night.

Any thoughts that Francona was going to continue platooning Chisenhall have have quelled. He has been penciled into the lineup for the Thursday afternoon game against Angels southpaw starter C.J. Wilson.

Chisenhall, who had struggled mightily against lefties entering this season, is 14 for 31 against them in 2014.


Lonnie Chisenhall starting to cool off?


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/17/2014) Indians third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall was hitless in three at-bats Monday against the Angels, extending his hitless streak to four games.

He is 0 for 13 with six strikeouts in his last four games. He totaled just one strikeout in his previous 10 games.

Chisenhall's slump comes on the heels of a nine-game hit streak. It also comes after he hit .451 with a .480 on-base percentage, .780 slugging percentage and 1.260 OPS in a 26-game span from May 14-June 11.


Playing time the key for Lonnie Chisenhall


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/10/2014) Lonnie Chisenhall won't hit .385 this season, and he probably won't have another three-homer game. But overachieving to that extent, particularly for an extended period of time, often signals a breakout.

And for Chisenhall, it would make sense. He's just entering his prime at age 25 and was considered one of the best 25 or 30 prospects in the game -- one regarded on about the same level as, say, Nolan Arenado -- when he arrived in 2011.  

In fact, given how infrequently he strikes out -- less than once every six at-bats, which is in line with his minor-league track record -- he could be everything Arenado was shaping up to be before breaking his finger in late May. He's actually homered at a better pace now.

The key for him is playing time, and it's the main reason why I don't rank him as high as Arenado just yet. But the Indians seem to have come around to playing him every day (how could they not?), starting him against three of the last four left-handers they've faced. And so far, so good. He's batting .520 (13 for 25) against them.

It may be stating the obvious by now, but you can't let Chisenhall go unowned in your league even if you're skeptical of his major-league track record up to this point. After all, the list of prospects who needed a couple years to find their form in the majors is innumerable.


Lonnie Chisenhall delivers three HRs, nine RBI Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/9/2014) Indians third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall had a career night Monday, going 5 for 5 with three home runs and nine RBI in his team's 17-7 win over the Rangers.

Per MLB.com, Chisenhall is the first player in Indians history to record three home runs, five hits and nine RBI in the same game. He drove in runners in each of his at-bats, starting with an RBI single in the first inning. Chisenhall smacked two-run homers in both the second and fourth innings before adding his sixth RBI with a sixth-inning double. He smashed a three-run home run in the eighth to complete the franchise-best performance.

Chisenhall upped his offense to new heights Monday, but he was already in the midst of a breakout season before the notable night. He now owns a .385/.429/.615 line with seven home runs and 32 RBI in 161 at-bats.


Hitters to start in Week 11


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/7/2014) If you need a sleeper for Fantasy Week 11 (June 9-15), A.J. Pierzynski, Adam Lind, Tommy La Stella , Lonnie Chisenhall, Alcides Escobar and Josh Willingham are just a few of the worthy candidates.

You can read about them in the latest Start and Sit Hitters.


Lonnie Chisenhall hits fourth home run


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6/7/2014) Indians third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall hit his fourth home run Friday against the Rangers.

In the top of the third, Chisenhall stepped in against Yu Darvish. He worked a seven-pitch at-bat from Darvish, which culminated in Chisenhall belting a 79 mph slider out to right for a two-run shot. He finished 1 for 3, with one run scored and three RBI. Chisenhall is hitting .361 over 147 at-bats.


Lonnie Chisenhall lifts off again Saturday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/31/2014) Indians third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall went deep and plated three runs in his team's 7-6 victory over the Rockies on Saturday.

Chisenhall took Franklin Morales deep for a two-run home run in the sixth inning. He also had a run-scoring single in the second off Morales and finished 2 for 3 with two runs scored and three RBI. All three of his home runs have come over the past 10 games. He owns a .369/.424/.554 with 15 RBI in 130 at-bats.

Hitters to start in Week 10


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/31/2014) Need a sleeper hitter for Fantasy Week 10 (June 2-8)? Wilson Ramos, Lucas Duda, Martin Prado, Lonnie Chisenhall, J.J. Hardy and Khris Davis are just a few of the possibilities you'll find in my Start and Sit Hitters column.

Find out what makes them so special here.


Injuries give Lonnie Chisenhall chance to prove himself


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/27/2014) Because of an injury to Carlos Santana, Lonnie Chisenhall got his first start against a left-handed pitcher Monday. With both Santana (concussion) and first baseman Nick Swisher (knee) going on the DL Tuesday, he could be in line for more.

His performance in their absence could dramatically influence his long-term Fantasy value. With a .371 batting average on the season, the former top prospect looks like he could be breaking out at age 25, but since he's not playing enough to factor in mixed leagues, nobody is ready to declare it just yet.

Maybe playing every day will bring his numbers down to size. He has never fared well against lefties at the major-league level, and his plate discipline is nothing to write home about. But at least with this opportunity, we should find out one way or another.

And if this breakout is indeed legitimate for a player who has fallen well short of expectations to this point, one of the weakest positions in Fantasy will be just a little bit stronger.


Indians get pop from the DH spot


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/23/2014) The Indians got a big performance from the designated hitter spot Thursday against the Orioles, and it was a team effort.

Ryan Raburn started the game as the team's designated hitter, and went 1 for 3 with a solo home run, his first of the season. He was replaced by Lonnie Chisenhall in the eighth inning, who hit his second home run of the season in his first at-bat, also a solo shot. Chisenhall went 2 for 3 with two runs scored as well, in the 8-7 extra-innings win.

Raburn has had trouble getting going this season, hitting just .198/.268/.267 in 86 at-bats. Chisenhall has had no such issues, and has 13 hits in his last eight games. He is hitting .376/.442/.545 in 101 at-bats. 


Lonnie Chisenhall knocks first home run Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2014) Indians third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall went 2 for 5 with his first home run of the year in his team's 11-10 win over the Tigers Wednesday.

Chisenhall's third-inning home run staked his team to a 7-5 lead in the wild game. He also scored one of his team's five runs in the second inning. Chisenhall has hit .367/.436/.510 with six RBI in 98 at-bats.
