Lonnie Chisenhall is not in the Indians' lineup Tuesday for the second straight game.
The Indians are giving the third baseman a couple days off in a row to work on his swing. "After the game on Sunday," manager Terry Francona explained, "we told him that we wanted him to take two days with [hitting coach Ty Van Burkleo] and kind of hit until his heart was content. Hit, hit, hit, hit without the game hanging over him." Chisenhall is batting just .231 with three home runs and 11 RBI this season, but he is hitting .286 average over his past 11 games. However, he's hitting left-handers at an ugly .095 (2-for-21) clip. Mark Reynolds is getting a second straight start at the hot corner.
