LONNIE CHISENHALL RUMORS

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...

Lonnie Chisenhall, Utility Man?

Since his recall on July 30th, after more than a month and a half in AAA, Lonnie Chisenhall has been used exclusively in right field. One of the “advantages” of being out of the play-off race early is that a trial by fire at a new position (he played just four games there in AAA, the first time he has attempted outfield work at any level) isn’t really dangerous. With nothing...

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...

MLB Trade Rumors: Lonnie Chisenhall reportedly available

it’s not exactly selling high, but it appears that the Cleveland Indians have made third baseman, and former first-round draft pick, Lonnie Chisenhall available for trade. ESPN.com’s Buster Olney reports that the inexpensive Chisenhall could be the target of a team looking for a left-handed bat to fill a utility spot. Selected with the 29th pick in the 2008 MLB Amateur Draft...

Chisenhall and Ramirez now Clippers in the outfield

When Lonnie Chisenhall and Jose Ramirez were relegated to the AAA Columbus Clippers, the hope for the Cleveland Indians was that Giovanny Urshela and Francisco Lindor would play well enough to solidify themselves as the starters at third base and shortstop for the foreseeable future. Despite issues for Francisco Lindor at the plate1 , the two prospects have been as good as advertised...

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...

Chisenhall Running Out of Chances With Tribe

The Cleveland Indians open the 2014 season with new expectations despite many questions. The Indians’ 25-man roster will look different than the group that won 92 games and lost the American League Wild Card game to the Tampa Bay Rays. While the roster may change and the expectations grow, Cleveland will need answer many questions this spring before opening the season in Oakland...
