Indians | Lonnie Chisenhall to work on swing
Cleveland Indians 3B Lonnie Chisenhall will receive a few days off to work on his swing with hitting coach Ty Van Burkleo. Chisenhall will be back in the lineup Wednesday, May 8. He's hitting only .231 (18-for-78) with four doubles, three home runs and 11 RBIs, including just .095 (2-for-21) against left-handers and .281 (16-for-57) against righties. "Lonnie is going to make his living on fastballs," said manager Terry Francona. "Right now he's fouling them off down along the left field line as opposed to getting the head of the bat to it."
Fantasy Tip: You'll have to do without Chisenhall for the next couple days. Mike Aviles will likely fill in at the hot corner, and he could continue to take playing time away from Chisenhall if he doesn't improve against southpaws. Keep an eye on this situation and how it evolves when Chisenhall returns.
