Indians | Lonnie Chisenhall exits early

Mon, 03 Aug 2015 21:56:52 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Lonnie Chisenhall (neck) left the game Monday, Aug. 3, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim due to a cervical strain/whiplash.

Fantasy Tip: Chisenhall should be avoided in FantasyScore until he can officially return and prove his health in a full game without any setbacks. Tyler Holt replaced him in the field and might draw a start if Chisenhall misses time.

Indians | Lonnie Chisenhall leading off

Sun, 02 Aug 2015 12:24:26 -0700

Cleveland Indians 3B Lonnie Chisenhall is in the leadoff spot Sunday, Aug. 2, against the Oakland Athletics.

Fantasy Tip: Chisenhall is hitting a robust .364 in the past week, but it's always wise to be wary of him. He has never led off a game this season, and he could slump at any time. You may be best going elsewhere.

Indians | Lonnie Chisenhall has strong night

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 04:16:46 -0700

Cleveland Indians 3B Lonnie Chisenhall had three hits, the go-ahead run and a stolen base as Cleveland beat the Oakland Athletics, 2-1, on Friday, July 31.

Fantasy Tip: Chisenhall was just called up in the past couple days and has yet to establish a FantasyScore value this time around. He should be a bit more valuable thanks to the Cleveland trades, but with some fantasy players it may be a case of once bitten, twice shy with Chisenhall.

Indians | Lonnie Chisenhall recalled, starts at DH

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 17:08:24 -0700

Cleveland Indians 3B Lonnie Chisenhall was recalled Thursday, July 30, and is in the lineup batting sixth as the club's designated hitter against Oakland Athletics SP Chris Bassitt.

Fantasy Tip: With Brandon Moss and David Murphy being dealt away, Chisenhall, a former highly-regarded prospect, will have yet another opportunity to earn playing time with the Indians. His line currently sits at .209/.241/.345 with just four home runs and 19 RBI in 52 games. Chisenhall should not be deployed in any lineups at the moment, but it wouldn't hurt to track his progress.

Indians | Lonnie Chisenhall called up

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 16:12:24 -0700

Cleveland Indians 3B Lonnie Chisenhall was called up from Class AAA Columbus Thursday, July 30.

Fantasy Tip: Chisenhall won't be on many fantasy owners' radars after a disappointing stint with the Tribe earlier this year, but he was hitting .280 (44-for-157) with three home runs and 21 RBI in the minors, and he figures to see decent playing time with Brandon Moss no longer in town. Plus, he could also add multi-position eligibility if he plays enough in the outfield or at first base. Owners in deeper leagues should take notice. Take a wait-and-see approach with him as a sleeper pick on FantasyScore.

Indians | Lonnie Chisenhall likely coming up

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 13:23:51 -0700

Cleveland Indians 3B Lonnie Chisenhall is "likely" to be activated to take the roster spot of OF Brandon Moss, who was traded to the St. Louis Cardinals. Chisenhall can play the corner outfield spots and first base.

Fantasy Tip: Chisenhall was a disappointment for the Tribe this year, hitting only .209 (37-for-177) with four home runs and 19 RBI, but a new opportunity for playing time could make him valuable, at least in AL-only leagues. Gaining multi-positional eligibility would make him slightly more attractive.

Indians | Lonnie Chisenhall sent to minors

Mon, 08 Jun 2015 00:32:09 -0700

Cleveland Indians 3B Lonnie Chisenhall was optioned to Class AAA Columbus on Sunday, June 7. In a corresponding move, INF Giovanny Urshela was recalled by the parent club.

Fantasy Tip: Chisenhall ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) has barely hit above the Mendoza line, and the last 25 games have been even worse. Chisenhall had a .165 batting average in that stretch, so all indications are he will stay at Class AAA barring injury. We may not have seen the last of Chisenhall in Cleveland, but his days as a regular player may have come to an end.

Indians | Lonnie Chisenhall out Sunday

Sun, 31 May 2015 13:03:19 -0700

Cleveland Indians INF Lonnie Chisenhall is not in the starting lineup against the Seattle Mariners Sunday, May 31. INF Mike Aviles is starting at third base and 1B Brandon Moss is starting at first base.

Fantasy Tip: Chisenhall ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) is only batting .202 for the month of May and .211 for the season. Remove him from all daily lineups. Aviles ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) and Moss ($3,800, 7.9% of cap) have struggled at the plate recently as well and should be avoided in FantasyScore.

Indians | Lonnie Chisenhall not starting Tuesday

Tue, 26 May 2015 11:42:27 -0700

Cleveland Indians 3B Lonnie Chisenhall is not starting Tuesday, May 26. 3B Mike Aviles is in the lineup and hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Chisenhall ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) has platooned more recently with Aviles, but there are signs Aviles ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) may be pulling ahead in the third base picture. Aviles is batting .438 in the last week, so take advantage of it.

Indians | Lonnie Chisenhall sitting again vs. Lefty

Wed, 20 May 2015 15:16:24 -0700

Cleveland Indians 3B Lonnie Chisenhall is not in the starting lineup against the Chicago White Sox Wednesday, May 20. SS Mike Aviles is starting at third base and hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Chisenhall ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) is struggling this season and currently sports a .226/.263/.371 slash line. Sitting in back-to-back games against southpaws suggests Mike Aviles ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) has earned starts at third base against left-handed pitchers. It is a blow to Chisenhall's seasonal value, but he shouldn't be owned in the majority of leagues considering his poor production. Aviles is nothing more than a low-priced flier in FantasyScore contests Wednesday.
