Chisenhall (illness) started Game 6 in right field and went 0-for-1 with a walk, a hit-by-pitch, and a strikeout.

EDGE Analysis

He was replaced by a pinch hitter in the eighth inning and should be considered healthy for Game 7. However, he is hitting .200/.250/.275 with 13 strikeouts in 40 at-bats this postseason, so he could be pinch hit for again Wednesday if the Indians need to opt for offense over defense.

Manager Terry Francona said that Chisenhall (illness) could have been used in Sunday night's World Series matchup with the Cubs, Paul Hoynes of Cleveland.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Chisenhall was sent home earlier in the day due to an unspecified illness, but it appears that the ailment is fairly minor. From the sound of it, the 28-year-old should be able to man right field again when the series returns to Cleveland on Tuesday night, although nothing is set in stone as of now.

Chisenhall is currently dealing with an unspecified illness, MLB.com's Jordan Bastian reports.

EDGE Analysis

Chisenhall was held out of Sunday's Game 5 lineup due to what was presumed to be matchup-related, but it now appears his health may have played a role as well. The outfielder will sit out some of the team's pregame routine as a result, but is expected to join the Indians at Wrigley prior to the game. It's unclear if manager Terry Francona will be comfortable enough to use him off the bench in a pinch-hit situation, if needed.

Chisenhall is out of the lineup Sunday in Game 5 of the World Series against the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

With southpaw Jon Lester on the mound for the Cubs, it looks like Tribe manager Terry Francona will tab the right-handed Brandon Guyer for the start in right field over the left-handed Chisenhall. Guyer is slashing an outstanding .333/.461/.553 against lefties this season, so it's hard to fault Francona for making the switch.

Chisenhall is out of the lineup for Thursday's matchup against Kansas City.

EDGE Analysis

Jason Vargas is slated to start for the Royals, so Chisenhall, who has a subpar .227 batting average against southpaws, will be left out of the lineup. In his absence, Brandon Guyer will get the nod to start in right field.

Chisenhall (abdomen) is back in the lineup hitting sixth Tuesday against the Royals.

EDGE Analysis

He came in off the bench in Sunday's game, so it's not surprising that he's ready to make his return to the lineup after Monday's off day. Chisenhall should see the bulk of the starts in right field, particularly against righties, over the last two weeks of the season.

Chisenhall (abdomen) is not in the lineup Friday against the Tigers.

EDGE Analysis

Chisenhall was a late scratch from Thursday's game due to an abdomen injury, and it appears that the issue hasn't resolved just yet. The 27-year-old will get another day off to rest while Coco Crisp takes his place in the lineup for the evening.

Chisenhall was a late scratch Thursday due to lower abdominal discomfort, the Cleveland Plain Dealer's Paul Hoynes reports.

EDGE Analysis

Coco Crisp enters the lineup in the leadoff spot, manning left field, while Abraham Almonte slides over to right field. Chisenhall should be considered day-to-day.

Chisenhall is not in the lineup Wednesday against the White Sox.

EDGE Analysis

With lefty Carlos Rodon set to oppose the Cleveland lineup, manager Terry Francona will stack as many right-handed bats as possible. As a result, Chisenhall will head to the bench Wednesday in favor of Brandon Guyer in right field.
