Finally, some good news for third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall. The Chiz, who has not played since he was injured with a concussion sliding into–ironically–third base on June 11th, was activated from the Clippers’ disabled list today and is expected to play tonight against Toledo.
Chisenhall, 22, who has struggled a bit both at the plate and in the field this season, saw his year take another bad turn when he suffered the concussion. The team kept him out of the lineup day-to-day, and when his symptoms didn’t improve they finally placed on him on the DL last week.
So far this season, Chisenhall is hitting .250 in 60 games with five home runs and 30 RBI. His .734 OPS has been disappointing, to say the least, and he also has seven errors in 54 games at third in the field with a .953 fielding percentage.
