LONNIE CHISENHALL RUMORS

Chisenhall Must Find a Way to Improve Defense Throughout Season

There was hardly a player more talked about during last year’s Spring Training than Lonnie Chisenhall. Would he get the third base job, what would happen between he and Carlos Santana, would Chisenhall end up in the minors, did he have what it took to be a contributing member of the team on more than just the bench, what was going to happen? Chisenhall managed to fight his way...

Chisenhall's goal for upcoming season is consisentcy

GOODYEAR, Ariz. -- If fans were able to choose walk-up songs for players, Billy Joel's "I Go to Extremes" might be the runaway winner for Lonnie Chisenhall. After establishing himself as an every day player last season, Chisenhall is hoping to build on that and establish more consistency both at the plate and on defense. "It's a long season. At some point you realize you are not...

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.

Chisenhall's record-setting night buries Rangers

ARLINGTON, Texas - At least when the Texas Rangers were bad Monday night, they paved the way for some history. Cleveland's Lonnie Chisenhall was a one-man wrecking crew against a hapless pitching staff, smacking three homers, driving in nine and going 5 for 5. He's the fourth player in big-league history to have a five hit, three homer, nine-RBI game in the majors since RBI became...

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...
