Latest Update Chisenhall is not in the Indians starting lineup on Tuesday. Tue Aug, 26, 05:14 PM
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.
The Chisenator has had back-to-back multi hit games, but is taking a seat vs the left handed starting pitcher, Jose Quintana.Analyst: Mark Kaplan
Even with a tomato can like Ricky Nolasco on the mound for the Twins, Chisenhall is being given the day off after going 9-for-51 (.176) with a .236 on-base percentage here in August. He'll be back, of course, so don't overreact, but he's going to need to get back on-track if he doesn't want to fall into a platoon here at the end. Mike Aviles will handle the work at third base Wednesday.Analyst: Howard Bender
Chisenhall has now hit safely in four-straight games and has two home runs, five RBI and four runs scored in that span. After an outstanding start to the season, Chisenhall's production dropped off considerably in July. Many thought that they had seen the best out of him and opted to sell as high as they could, but his start here in August is giving hope to those who have stuck with him. It's going to be a near-impossibility to repeat what he did for the first three months of the season, but if he can simply come close here over the final two , then he's paying greater dividends this year than anyone could have ever imagined.Analyst: Howard Bender
Chisenhall ended a 1-for-16 slump with a bang on Friday night, now sitting on a .309 average with 10 home runs and 42 RBI through 311 at-bats. Although his production has cooled of in the second half of the season (.184 BA), now that he has both a home run and a two-hit game under his belt should be enough to get him moving back in the right direction.
