LONNIE CHISENHALL RUMORS

Lonnie Chisenhall Doesn’t Suck

We tend to view first round picks as players who should be All-Stars, at the least. While you want your first rounders to be the best of the best and be impact players, the truth is, they all can’t be. That doesn’t mean they aren’t a good first round pick. In the MLB Draft, especially for a team like the Indians, finding productive players in any round is very important. The...

AB by Chisenhall example of Tribe's resolve

Indians outfielder Lonnie Chisenhall didn't change his approach in his second at-bat on Saturday night. He just saw enough pitches, and Chisenhall was able to do what few people have done this year against Blue Jays righty Aaron Sanchez.

Lonnie Chisenhall named ESPN Sweet Spot’s DPOM for August

If you’re surprised by the headline, we wouldn’t blame you. If it seems like just last month that Lonnie Chisenhall was a struggling third baseman who was sent down to Triple-A to work out a few kinks, well—it was. Since being promoted back to the big league team, and completely changing positions, Chisenhall has completely reinvented himself as a player. So much so that...

Lonnie Chisenhall reviving career with new role

When Lonnie Chisenhall began the 2015 Major League season as the starting third baseman for the Cleveland Indians, many Tribe fans believed that he only had one chance left with the club. The Indians’ 2008 first-round draft pick (29th overall) made his highly anticipated big league debut with the Tribe on June 27, 2011 , but it had mostly been 3.5 years of disappointment prior...

In defense of Lonnie Chisenhall

by Michael Bode Everyone has their own personal biases. I am no exception, and I am absolutely unapologetic for the soft spot in my heart for pre-prime-year players1 who have shown dedication toward improving their craft and have demonstrated some ability, even if they have yet to put it all together. Therefore, not one person should turn their heads nor have their eyes widen when...

Chisenhall credits refined approach for extended hot streak

KANSAS CITY -- Two thirds of the way through an interview on Wednesday, Indians hitting coach Ty Van Burkleo said something about Lonnie Chisenhall's season that could have come directly out of Jack Handey's "Deep Thoughts." "You talk about him being hot but maybe he's not hot. He's been consistent the whole year." It is also something that is starting to gain more credence the longer...

Cooperstown calling: Baseball HOF requests Chisenhall's bat

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Lonnie Chisenhall's phone has pretty much been going nonstop since his three home run, nine RBI game on Monday. There was one call though on Tuesday that he was very happy to take -- from the National Baseball Hall of Fame. The Hall requested Chisenhall's Mizuno bat from Monday's 17-7 win over Texas, where he became the first player to have five hits, three home...

Chisenhall carves out place in baseball history

Lonnie Chisenhall added another chapter to his surprising season on Monday with a night for the record books. In the Indians' 17-7 win over Texas, Chisenhall became the first player in MLB history to have five hits, three home runs and nine RBI in five plate appearances. Previously three other players had five hits, three homers and nine RBI but had more plate appearances -- Fred...

Chisenhall flourishing after past struggles

Lonnie Chisenhall has gone from being on the bubble during spring training to the Indians' most improved offensive player. Chisenhall's .358 batting average is second in the majors among players with at least 120 plate appearances. Quite a turnaround considering last year at this time he was in Columbus after hitting .213 and lost his job at third base. "I think the way I'm approaching...

Is this the end of days for Lonnie Chisenhall?

Last season, I really wanted Lonnie Chisenhall to take the third base job by the throat and strangle it. The Tribe’s former first-round pick—and the supposed future of the hot corner—was given the job last Spring with little looking over his shoulder. Sure, the Indians had brought in Mark Reynolds on a one-year deal, but that was to be a first base/designated hitter option...
