Chisenhall is out of Thursday's lineup against the Mariners.

Chisenhall's day off likely relates to the left-handed James Paxton's presence on the mound Thursday. Mike Aviles will start at third base in his place, batting second for the Indians.

Chisenhall went 3-for-5 with a double, a homer, three RBI and two runs Wednesday against Texas.

He's struggled all year long, but Chisenhall showed last season that he's capable of going on serious hot streaks, and for what it's worth, June was his most productive month last season. At the very least, this performance should buy him some more time at third base to get things going.

Chisenhall is out of the lineup Tuesday.

At this point it seems like Chisenhall (.204/.238/.338) should be in significant jeopardy of losing out on playing time pretty regularly going forward. Mike Aviles serves as the third baseman Tuesday, but prospect Giovanny Urshela, who is slashing .317/.349/.488 so far at Triple-A, could be a more long-term replacement option if Chisenhall continues to struggle.

Chisenhall, who entered Monday in an 0-for-18 slump and hitting just .188 in May, will not find himself in a strict platoon situation at third base, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Chisenhall has actually fared better against southpaws (.256, 10-for-39) versus righties (.184, 18-for-98) though he did sit against four straight lefties against the White Sox last week. He may not be in a strict platoon situation but it's hard to imagine he'll see too many starts against lefties with Mike Aviles hitting well (.324, 22-for-68) at the moment.

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

After going a stretch of 17 starts in 18 games, Chisenhall will now be held out of the lineup for the fourth consecutive game. With Mike Aviles hitting well in his stead and Chisenhall sporting just a .224/.261/.368 slash line, it appears as though the 26-year-old may be losing his grip on an everyday role.

Chisenhall is not in the lineup Tuesday against the White Sox, Joe Reedy of Fox Sports Ohio reports.

Chisenhall had started 17 of the previous 18 games at third base before Monday, but he'll now be held out of action for a second consecutive contest. It's likely more of a product of facing southpaws both days than anything else, as the Indians will oppose Jose Quintana on Tuesday. Mike Aviles will get the start at third and bat sixth in his stead.

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

Chisenhall has started 17 of the last 18 contests at the hot corner for the Indians, but will take a seat Monday in favor of Mike Aviles, who is making his return from the restricted list. With lefty Chris Sale on the hill for the opposing White Sox, it's not too surprising to see manager Terry Francona turn to the right-handed Aviles to get a matchup advantage.

Chisenhall went 3-for-5 with a run scored and an RBI in the 10-8 win over the Rangers on Saturday.

Chisenhall has been in and out of the lineup all season, but appears to face righties consistently. He gets to square off against Nick Martinez Sunday, who he had nine RBI's on last season in a single game.

Chisenhall is not in the lineup Friday against the Rangers.

Chisenhall will take a seat for the first time since Apr. 27 as Zach Walters steps in for his second career start at third base. With just two hits in his last five games, Chisenhall is now batting .221/.264/.372 for the season. He could find himself sitting more against left-handed pitching moving forward.
