Chisenhall collided with an outfield wall during a Cactus League game in March, causing him to begin the season on the 10-day DL. Injuries were a factor again in May when he suffered a concussion, and throughout the second half when he dealt with a nagging calf ailment. In sum, Chisenhall played in 82 games for Cleveland last season, with the bulk of that playing time coming on the large side of a platoon as he racked up 210 of his 270 plate appearances against righties despite enjoying success in his limited exposure to southpaws. The per-game output was the best of Chisenhall's career, as he swatted 12 homers and drove in 53 runs while establishing career highs across the board with his slash line (.288/.360/.521). Unless he's entrusted with regular opportunities against lefties, it's difficult to rely on Chisenhall for more than 450 plate appearances, but he'll have an excellent opportunity to provide above-average run production if he remains in Cleveland.

  2. Lonnie Chisenhall 2017 Preseason Outlook
    Chisenhall finds himself as a strong-side platoon player at the young age of 28. He had his best year in batting average because manager Terry Francona limited his exposure to lefties -- against whom he has had little career success. Even then, it isn't like he is a monster against righties either. He has more of a line drive approach than one that projects for 20 homers and thus he doesn't draw too many walks as pitchers opt not to pitch around him. In an ideal world, he teases 20 homers by getting a lot of help from his home-run-to-flyball ratio, but if he gets 500 plate appearances, it will drag down his average because he will face too many lefties. He no longer qualifies in the infield, and the lack of power really impacts his fantasy value as an outfielder where these types are easily found in the free agent pool.
  3. Lonnie Chisenhall 2016 Preseason Outlook
    Chisenhall earned himself a ticket back to Triple-A Columbus in early June after getting off to a .209/.241/.345 start at the plate and struggling defensively at the hot corner. He didn't hit a ton during his demotion, but did enough to earn himself a callup at the end of July and saw most of his time in right field and DH upon his return. The Indians seem committed to a left side of the infield consisting of Giovanny Urshela and Francisco Lindor going forward, so Chisenhall will need to land a utility role this spring. A second-half OPS of .756 was inflated by a .359 BABIP, and a career .727 OPS against righties is serviceable, but doesn't make him a righty-masher by any stretch of the imagination. The Indians were encouraged enough by his defense in right field to give him a chance to earn a share of the duties in spring training if they are unable to land a big corner bat in the offseason.
  4. Lonnie Chisenhall 2015 Preseason Outlook
    When it was all said and done, 2014 was the breakout year for Chisenhall that wasn't really a breakout. The only statistical change in Chisenhall’s game was a career best batting average that led to a bump in on-base percentage. His slugging rates were in line with his career norms and even his plate discipline in terms of swing rates, chase rates, and the like have all been remarkably stable for a young player. The spike in average was fueled by hitting lefties – something he rarely did in previous seasons. Whether the improvement was enough to keep him out of a platoon remains to be seen, but it is a good start. He hit .332/.396/.519 in the first half and just .218/.277/.315 after the break. The real Chisenhall lies somewhere in between that for 2015 with perhaps a little more power to come. Talk up the weak second half on draft day while rostering the stable skills on the cheap.
  5. Lonnie Chisenhall 2014 Preseason Outlook
    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.
  6. Lonnie Chisenhall 2013 Preseason Outlook
    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.
  7. Lonnie Chisenhall 2012 Preseason Outlook
    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.
  8. Lonnie Chisenhall 2011 Preseason Outlook
    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.
  9. Lonnie Chisenhall 2010 Preseason Outlook
    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.
