Well, he's eligible to come off the 7-day DL on Friday barring any setbacks.Not that we're anticipating any, but when it comes to concussions, you just never know how a guy is going to react.

Lonnie Chisenhall is not in the Indians starting lineup on Thursday.

It looks like Chisenhall is going to do a lot more sitting against southpaws the rest of the way. Despite a four-game hit streak, he's taking a seat against lefty John Danks. He also took a seat Tuesday against Jose Quintana. The second half of the season has not been kind to Chisenhall or his owners, so the Tribe is going to cut some of his time. Mike Aviles will replace him at third Thursday.

Lonnie Chisenhall hit his 12th home run of the year in a loss to the White Sox on Wednesday. 

After a solid first half (.322/.396/.519) Chisenhall has fell off the map since returning from the All-Star break, slashing .196/.256/.313 with three home runs and only seven RBI over his last 112 at-bats. Although he is still sitting on a .291 average overall, until he turns things around he can't be trusted in leagues where there are more productive alternatives moving forward.

Corey Kluber fell to 13-8 after allowing three runs on nine hits and two walks with eight strikeouts over 6.1 innings against the White Sox on Wednesday. 

Kluber has now found himself in the loss column in his second consecutive start although he has allowed only six runs in that stretch. The Indians ace is sitting with a 2.52 ERA and 1.10 WHIP through 28 starts while owning a sold 213:44 K:BB rate over 192.2 innings. Considering how well he has pitched this season, there is no reason to panic after just his second losing streak of the season. He remains one of the best options to deploy in starting lineups, especially sitting on a 9.95 K/9 up to this point.

Yan Gomes (concussion) is running sprints in the outfield prior to Wednesday's game.

Gomes seemed to do well with his workout Tuesday and the Indians were going to see how he felt after ramping up the activity on Wednesday. If all goes well, there's a good chance he returns for Friday's game.

Zach Walters went 2-for-4 with a home run, two RBI, two runs scored and a walk in a extra inning shootout victory over the White Sox on Tuesday. 

The freshly minted Indian endeared himself to his new fan base Tuesday night smashing a walk-off home run to top the division rival White Sox. He's never been billed as much of a hitter and shouldn't be expected to provide any thump to fantasy lineups.

T.J. House allowed five runs on seven hits and a walk with four strikeouts over 4.2 innings in a no decision against the White Sox on Tuesday. 

Tuesday was House's worst start of the season, It's only the 3rd time in 13 starts he's given up more than three runs. The Indians will likely give him a chance to stick in the rotation next season.

David Murphy took 45 swings off a tee on Tuesday and said he is feeling great. 

Murphy is on track to return in the middle part of September, but that hinges on whether he will be able to make it through the rehab process without a setback. When on the field, Murphy has put up solid numbers, posting a .262 average with seven home runs.
