Lonnie Chisenhall 1B/3B.. CLE 22 Days

Chisenhall was tendered a contract by the Indians before the Tuesday night deadline.

Chisenhall got off to a hot start at the plate (.332 batting in the first half, .218 in the second half) but cooled considerably as the season wore on. His defense wasn't very good either and the Indians figure to actively look to upgrade at the hot corner this offseason.

Chisenhall provided all the offense for the Indians Monday afternoon, going 2-for-4 with three RBI and a home run.

The third baseman has cooled off considerably since the end of June, and September had been no exception before Monday's big day. Chisenhall's blast was his 13th of the season, but just his second since August 4. Despite slowing down considerably, Chisenhall still owns a .291 batting average to go with his 13 homers and 55 RBI.

Chisenhall is out of the lineup Thursday against the White Sox.

Despite hitting a game-tying homer in the seventh inning of Wednesday's game, Chisenhall will find himself back on the bench for Thursday's series finale. Mike Aviles will man third and bat sixth against left-hander John Danks. Chisenhall sat out Tuesday as well against lefty Jose Quintana and it seems his exposure to lefties will remain limited over the final couple weeks.

Chisenhall is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Twins, MLB.com's Jordan Bastian reports.

Chisenhall doesn't typically sit when right-handers such as the Twins' Ricky Nolasco are on the mound, but perhaps his limited production in recent weeks is warranting his day off. He's batting a mere 9-for-51 (.176) with a .236 on-base percentage in August.

Chisenhall is out of the lineup for Game 2 of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Diamondbacks, Nick Camino of Newsradio WTAM 1100 reports.

Mike Aviles will draw the start at third base, pushing Chisenhall to the bench after an 0-for-3 performance in Game 1. For the month of August, Chisenhall is batting just .167/.211/.361, but his job as the regular third baseman is secure.

Chisenhall is out of the lineup Friday.

Mike Aviles will man third base, as the slumping Chisenhall gets a night off. His batting average has dipped from .312 to .296 over the last 10 games, but he's still hitting for some pop, as he has two home runs over that span, and his slugging percentage sits at a very respectable .466.
