Latest Update Lonnie Chisenhall is not in the Indians starting lineup on Sunday. Sun Jul, 20, 09:46 AM
Is blessed with very good home-run and run-production upside, especially from the third base position. Also displays an ability to hit for average.
Flaws: : Needs to become a more consistent player in all facets of the game, especially at the hot corner. Must prove he can hit lefties with regularity.
Mike Aviles will fill in at the hot corner for Chisenhall on Sunday, despite hitting .339 against left-handed opposition in 2014. This appears to be nothing more than a chance to get Aviles some at-bats to keep him fresh, so expect him to be back in the starting lineup for the series opener against the Twins on Monday.Analyst: Matthew Beck
While Chisenhall continues to hit for a fantastic average, .344 over 244 at-bats, the power has dropped off considerably. In fact, in the 17 games since his big three-homer game he has just two home runs and has looked slightly off at times while stepping into the batter's box. You can;t bench him though, based on the overall numbers, but expecting him to repeat in the second half might be a bit of a stretch.Analyst: Howard Bender
Chisenhall is now slashing .353/.406/.570 with eight home runs and 35 RBI through his first 207 at-bats. Although we have seen a dip in his production of late, prior to Tuesday's performance, he is still a must-start fantasy option in all formats while performing as a high level. Analyst: Matthew Beck
Chisenhall continues to be a pleasant surprise for both the Indians and his fantasy owners in 2014, now sporting a .368 average with eight home runs and 33 RBI through 185 at-bats. Although it would be unrealistic to think that he will be able support this high of a batting average for an entire season, his power production is something fantasy owners can rely on until he proves us otherwise, considering he continues to make great contact, is sitting on just a 16.7 percent strikeout rate and is nestled in the heart of the Indians lineup for the foreseeable future.
