Chisenhall (calf) agreed to a one-year, $2.75 million contract with Pittsburgh on Monday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Chisenhall spent the 2018 campaign with Cleveland, although he missed the majority of the season due to injury and failed to return after landing on the disabled list with a calf strain July 2. He appeared in just 29 games, slashing .321/.394/.452 with a home run and nine RBI over that span. If Chisenhall can stay healthy, he could certainly push for one of Pittsburgh's starting outfield spots with Gregory Polanco the most likely candidate to be moved to a bench role.

EDGE Analysis

Chisenhall has been on the disabled list since July 2 with a left calf strain. He's currently rehabbing at the team's spring training facilities in Arizona, though it doesn't sound like he's particularly close to rejoining the Indians.

Chisenhall (calf) has been running on a treadmill, taking swings off a tee and making throws on the field, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Chisenhall was placed on the disabled list July 2 due to a moderate left calf strain. Although his return is likely a ways off, it's good to see him participating in some baseball activities without issue. After being shifted to the 60-day DL, Chisenhall won't be activated until early September.

Chisenhall (calf) was moved to the 60-day disabled list prior to Friday's game.

EDGE Analysis

Chisenhall was transferred over in order to make room for Melky Cabrera on the active roster. Since Chisenhall was expected to miss around 8-to-10 weeks due to a Grade 2 left calf strain he suffered in early July, this move won't impact his timetable.

Chisenhall has been diagnosed with a Grade 3 left calf strain and is expected to miss 8-to-10 weeks, T.J. Zuppe of The Athletic Cleveland reports.

EDGE Analysis

This means he won't be able to return until around Sept. 1, at the earliest, so those in redraft leagues may be able to find a better use of a roster spot. Tyler Naquin has been filling in for Chisenhall against righties, while Brandon Guyer has been getting starts in right field against southpaws.

Chisenhall was a late scratch from Monday's lineup, and although it's unclear as to when he sustained the injury, he'll head to the 10-day disabled list. With Chisenhall on the shelf, Rajai Davis will likely man center field, with Tyler Naquin taking over in right.
