The Real Deal Chisenhall

When talking about the Indians in any area, the one name that pops up more than any other is Lonnie Chisenhall. As a barely replacement level part time player who is far removed from being a top prospect and just as far from being a reliable veteran, this may seem unwarranted, but it really does make sense. There is little discussion needed about Francisco Lindor (outside of shouting...

The Resurgence of Lonnie Baseball

In Cleveland, there is a star in every sport. The Cavs have Brony-Basketball, the Browns have Johnny-Football, and the Indians have Lonnie-Baseball. Since returning to The Show as a right fielder, Lonnie Chisenhall has excelled and then some. The excitement around him is growing and if you are at the ballpark expect to get an earful of Lonnie cheers and chants. What makes it even...

9/20 Recap: Francona’s 250th Indians Win Features 5 Pitchers, No Bunts

 Player of the Game Lonnie Chisenhall continued his solid second half today with a two run home run off John Danks in the second inning that gave the Indians the lead. He later knocked in Yan Gomes a second time with a double in the sixth. While he has largely been kept out of games against left handed pitchers, this doesn’t really make baseball sense as he is now batting .259...

Carrasco and Chisenhall Help Cleveland Oust KC; Indians 8, Royals 3

A strong start from Cleveland’s Carlos Carrasco and three runs knocked in by Lonnie Chisenhall helped the Indians capture a series opening win over the Kansas City Royals on Monday night, 8-3. After a first pitch home run from Alex Gordon, Carrasco settled in to strike out nine batters over six innings, including at least one in each frame. He evaded trouble until his final inning...

Has Lonnie Chisenhall Found His Stride?

Earlier this season, it appeared that Lonnie Chisenhall would become a perennial AAA ballplayer, would forever be stuck in the limbo between the highest levels of the minor leagues and the Major League stage. His big league performances have bounced up and down in recent years, and he has moved around the infield with little consistency at any one position. Last season, Chisenhall...

Lonnie Baseball saves defensive runs, Indians in 7-5 win over Tigers

Lonnie “Baseball” Chisenhall had himself a game during the Cleveland Indians 7-5 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Thursday. With the win, the Indians moved to 69-70 and within four games of the Texas Rangers for the final AL Wild Card position. Michael Brantley was dubbed the game’s hero by many for his two home runs; including the go-ahead two-run shot in the eighth inning...

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 three and a half years of disappointment...

In defense of Lonnie Chisenhall

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 I announce my...

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...
