Indians' Chisenhall, Ramirez looking to expand in Triple-A


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(7/9/2015) Indians infielders Lonnie Chisenhall and Jose Ramirez are trying to expand their game while in Triple-A Columbus, per Cleveland.com.

Chisenhall played right field on Wednesday, while Ramirez is going to venture into the outfield as well.

"Lonnie actually wanted to do that," manager Terry Francona said, per Cleveland.com. "That was his idea. He wants to play some first base and the outfield to make himself more valuable. I don't want to speak for him, but I think he said playing third base was weighing on him a little bit.

"That's a unique skill set. A guy who can play the corner outfield, who can play first and third, that's a pretty unique skill set. I think we're going to start moving Jose Ramirez around, too, maybe even to the outfield."

Both Chisenhall and Ramirez were sent down to the minors back in June.

Indians' Antonetti: 2015 could be a really good year for Chisenhall


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/11/2015) The Indians have raved about the strides third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall has made in the offseason following an inconsistent campaign in 2014, per MLB.com. They hope the improvements don't stop once spring training begins.

"I think one of Lonnie's personal goals next year is to be more consistent from Day 1 through the end of the season," Indians general manager Chris Antonetti said. "But, you really can't script how a season is going to unfold. I think what we look at is, on balance, Lonnie had a very productive season when you look at the totality of his contributions."

Chisenhall got off to a hot start last season, batting .393 with seven home runs, 17 doubles and 32 RBI in his first 53 games (44 starts). Unfortunately, he hit just .219 with six home runs, 12 doubles and 27 RBI over his final 89 games.

A major reason for Chisenhall's decline was his success against left-handed pitchers once he became the team's regular third baseman. Prior to June 12, Chisenhall only saw left-handed pitching in 16 percent (31 out of 189) of his plate appearances, and hit .500 in those plate appearances. After June 11, Chisenhall faced lefties in 26 percent (90 out of 344) of his plate appearances and hit .222 (.564 OPS) in those at-bats.

"Lonnie worked incredibly hard at that and made great progress," Antonetti said. "So we're really excited to see how that continues, because he's such a young player. If he continues the same path he's on, next year could be a really good year for him."

Indians' Francona believes Lonnie Chisenhall can be good defender


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

"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.
