LONNIE CHISENHALL RUMORS

The Tribe Runs Circles Around The Competition

With one out in the fourth inning of Monday’s game against the Royals, Lonnie Chisenhall hit a bloop single to center field. Even though Jose Ramirez was not running on the pitch (probably because of what happened two pitches earlier), he still managed to go from first to third on the short single. On the next play, he scored on a Juan Uribe groundout pushing the Tribe’s lead...

A close examination of Lonnie Chisenhall's TOOTBLAN

We'll never know exactly what went wrong in Lonnie's brain on Sunday. In the fourth inning of Sunday afternoon's game against the Tigers, Lonnie Chisenhall smoked a single through the right side of the infield. Francisco Lindor scored on the play. ESPN has the following description: Lindor scored, Napoli to third, Chisenhall thrown out at second attempting to advance on play. This...

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...

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...

The Future of Lonnie Chisenhall Undefined with Tribe

When Lonnie Chisenhall was called up to the big leagues in late June 2011, he was perceived as the future third baseman of the Cleveland Indians. When that future may actually be, if ever, still remains a question. After two and a half seasons of platoons and opportunities squandered, Chisenhall’s role and future is as unclear today as it has ever been. Tuesday, Indians manager...
