Chisenhall (personal) was activated from the bereavement list Tuesday, Paul Hoynes of Cleveland.com reports.

As expected, Chisenhall will rejoin the Indians after missing four straight games during his stint on the bereavement list. He'll likely re-enter his spot in the starting lineup for the Indians, which may limit the playing time of Michael Martinez and Marlon Byrd.

Chisenall, who got the starting nod in center field Sunday, could see more action at the position going forward, MLB.com reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Chisenhall was to see some time in center field this spring but those plans were shuttered while Chisenhall was dealing with a forearm issue. With Tyler Naquin being sent down to Triple-A the Indians have limited options in center field so Chisenhall's ability to handle the position should result in some extra playing time.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Chisenhall will get the day off and be replaced in right field by Marlon Byrd.

Also, Byrd has a successful track record against opposing starting pitcher Ian Kennedy. Expect Chisenhall to return to the lineup in Sunday's series finale.
