Lonnie Chisenhall, defensive specialist

A stroll through the Indians outfield, Part IV. If anything good has come out of Lonnie Chisenhall the last two years, it's the discovery that he's not bad at playing right field. That's a combination of saying he is literally not terrible, and the nodding one's head while looking at something good and going "not bad". Alright to pretty good is the closest I can get without tripping...

Naquin, Chisenhall had different views on first inning mistake

As important as Addison Russell’s grand slam was, many would argue that the play that keyed the Chicago Cubs’ Game 6 win over the Cleveland Indians and set the tone early was the misplayed fly ball in the first inning that saw confusion reign between center fielder Tyler Naquin and right fielder Lonnie Chisenhall. Nobody was entirely sure what happened on the play. That includes...

WATCH: Lonnie Chisenhall blasts three-run HR to give Indians 4-0 lead over Red Sox

Up 1-0 in the ALDS, the Cleveland Indians got off to a hot start against the Boston Red Sox when Lonnie Chisenhall hit a three-run bomb in the third 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 3.5 years of disappointment prior...

In defense of Lonnie Chisenhall

by Michael Bode 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...

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...
