RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Chisenhall's slow start (.213/.253/.351 in 94 at-bats) earned him a return trip to Triple-A Columbus in May in an effort to put the pieces back together. He hit his way back to Cleveland with a .390/.456/.676 line in 27 games at Triple-A and showed some improvement in his return to the Tribe. Over the course of his career, he made very little progress against southpaws, and it doesn't appears as though he will ever completely fulfill the promise he once flashed as a prospect. Chisenhall has likely shown enough to enter spring training as the team's starter at third base, but he is likely to become a batting average liability if the Indians overexpose him against left-handed pitching.

2013

Chisenhall opened the season at Triple-A Columbus after slumping his way off the roster in spring training before earning a promotion to Cleveland at the end of May. A broken forearm effectively ended his season a month later, sidelining him until the middle of September, so he could be excused for never seemingly getting on track at the plate. The shine on his prospect status is beginning to wear off and he needs to start producing at the plate to secure his place in the team's plans as the Tribe's primary third baseman. He figures to enter spring with the inside track for the third-base job, but there's less upside here than there appeared to be a few seasons ago.

2012

A quick start to the season that had the Indians in contention combined with concussion issues at Triple-A Columbus kept Chisenhall down in the minors until late June. He didn't hit the ground running quite as quickly as many had hoped, hitting .255 with seven homers in 66 games for the Indians after his promotion. His command of the strike zone got worse as the season wore on so he'll need to reverse that trend quickly. He's a nice prospect and Cleveland's everyday third baseman heading into spring training, but it may be a few more seasons before he's a big contributor in most fantasy circles.

2011

Chisenhall rebounded nicely after being slowed by a shoulder injury, hitting .278/.351/.450 at Double-A with 17 homers. He's never had that jaw-dropping season that screams stud in the making but he'll give you decent power and batting average once he arrives. The Indians are looking for third-base help this winter as Chisenhall figures to need some time at Triple-A before he's ready. A midseason callup isn't out of the question and may hinge on the quality of the veterans who end up ahead of him on the depth chart at the end of spring training.

2010

Chisenhall, the team's top pick in the 2008 draft, earned a promotion to Double-A Akron to end the season after a breakout year (.276 with 18 homers) as a 20-year-old at High-A Kinston. He had a forgettable month at Double-A (.183 with 16 K in 93 at-bats) but had a nice postseason. Forgive Indians fans if they break out into hives with memories of Matt Whitney, but Chisenhall figures to be the team's heir apparent to Jhonny Peralta at third base. The Indians have a $7 million option on Peralta for the 2011 season so there should be no temptation to rush the kid if he's not totally ready. He'll spend most of 2010 at Double-A.
