Indians OF Lonnie Chisenhall Scheduled to DH Today For AA Akron in Rehab Assignment

The Indians are closer to being back to 100 percent as today Lonnie Chisenhall will be in Akron with the Tribe’s AA Club the Rubberducks as a DH.

Chisenhall hasn’t appeared for the big league Indians since July 9th in the final game before the All-Star break against the Tigers when he suffered a calf injury.

He was leading the team with 51 RBI before landing on the disabled list. The Indians outfield has changed since his injury, as with Michael Brantley on the 10-day DL with an ankle injury, Wednesday the team acquired Jay Bruce from the New York Mets.

It will be interesting once Chisenhall is ready to go for the Indians how Terry Francona will shuffle the deck between Bruce and Chisenhall, and even more so when Brantley is back.
