BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2014 Due to publishing agreements, the 2014 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2014 book (available in hardcopy, e-book, and Kindle).
2013 Chisenhall only played 73 games between Triple-A and the majors, but all in all it was a worthwhile season. The 24-year-old former top prospect still has work to do, but he improved in virtually every rate statistic after a rough debut in 2011. He struggles mightily against lefties and could end up a platoon player if he doesn’t start advancing in that realm quickly. The problems against southpaws make it difficult to see the dreams of hitting .300 that his swing elicits becoming reality. However, he is on the right side of 25 with fewer than 400 big-league plate appearances under his belt, so it would be foolish to tag any of his skills as set in stone, especially someone with his minor-league pedigree.
2012 Chisenhall was the subject of many a Cleveland bar fight last March over whether he was the team's top prospect. Brawlers fell into two camps: Team Lonnie and Team Jason. While Jason Kipnis had a tremendous rookie debut with the Tribe, Chisenhall did quite well for himself, too. He chases too many pitches out of the zone and so has never posted a batting average that would catch your eye. He is making good on his power potential, however, and could one day be a 20-25 home run guy. A former shortstop, Chisenhall is above-average defensively at the hot corner and should be a good regular in Cleveland for years to come, even if he lacks a star's ceiling.
2011 Chisenhall's numbers at Double-A in 2010 fall into the "pretty good" category, but he's much better than that, as he spent much of the first half playing through a shoulder problem. While it's a cliché and in no way a guarantee of stardom, Chisenhall really does have one of the prettiest swings in the minors, as well as solid power and defensive skills at third base. He doesn't have the ceiling of most top prospects, but he has one of the higher floors; it's impossible to find a scout who doesn't think he'll be an above-average everyday player at a position the Indians desperately need to fill.
2010 When the Indians selected Chisenhall with their first-round pick in 2008, it was a bit of a surprise, but one year later it looks like a steal. Move to third base for his full-season debut, Chisenhall played the position well, and his downright pretty swing should produce high batting averages and above-average power. After an impressive showing in High-A, he was rewarded with a promotion to Double-A for the last month of the season where his aggressive approach at the plate betrayed him, but he snapped back in the playoffs, going 14-for-30 in seven games. Chisenhall will start the season back at Double-A, but it would be no surprise if he got a September trial with an eye towards replacing Johnny Peralta, whose contract fortuitously expires after this season.
2009 The possessor of the best old-school baseball name in the 2008 draft, Chisenhall was also the best juco player in the country. He was expected to go a bit later than 29th in the first round, partially due to a makeup issue—a charge of grand larceny during his freshman year at South Carolina led to dismissal from the team and a transfer to Pitt Junior College (N.C.), where he hit .410 and struck out only eight times all season. Chisenhall had a solid debut, but he'll need to keep smoking the ball as he moves up, for his glove (16 errors) has already put in for a transfer to second or third.

BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-07-31 19:30:00 (link to chat)What are your feelings on Lonnie Chisenhall….in a rut or showing exactly what he is?
(Rich from Baltimore)
He's definitely not the .400 hitter we saw earlier in the year, but he's not quite this bad, either. Second-division starter at 3B for me, or a good strong-side platoon bat on a competitive club. (Ben Carsley)
2014-06-26 14:00:00 (link to chat)Who are few guys you'd be buying/selling right now?
(Shawnykid23 from CT)
I guess I don't necessarily keep a list like this lying around, but off the top of my head...

I'm selling: Jesse Chavez, Chase Whitley, Lonnie Chisenhall, Gordon Beckham

I'm buying: Kole Calhoun, Ian Kennedy, Joey Votto, Michael Brantley, Will Smith (J.P. Breen)
2014-04-16 19:00:00 (link to chat)In need of CI Help (AVG HR STEALS RBI RUNS) best available are: Mike Olt, Lonnie Chisenhall, David Freese, Lucas Duda, Marcus Siemen thank you and I hope the rest of my league RESTS IN PEACEEE
(the Undetaker from Death Valley)
It will never cease to amaze me how many smart people I follow on Twitter like wrestling. For 2014 only, I go Freese, Semien, Chisenhall, Olt, Duda. (Ben Carsley)
2013-11-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)Just took over an abysmal squad in a 16-team, 7x7 format with 25 man rosters. I have stripped it down and the top of my depth chart around the infield reads Matt Adams, Kolten Wong, Xander Bogaerts, and Lonnie Chisenhall. I'm not extremely confident, as of today, that anyone besides Bogaerts will get everyday reps in 2014. So the question becomes at what position(s) I should grab filler for this season. Who would you confidently run out there as starters? I'm considering one option of allowing Bogaerts to man third and pick up a Jed Lowrie/Brad Miller type to fill the gap up the middle. Any thoughts or insight as to how would you approach it?
(AnthopoJays from Houston TX)
It all depends on your waiver wire. I'd try to grab a 2B and a 3B and leave Bogaerts at short, but if Brad Miller (who I like) is the best option, by all means slide him over. I'd confidently play Adams and Bogaerts as starters in a 16-team league (and potentially Wong as well if Freese is traded) (Bret Sayre)
2013-03-27 20:00:00 (link to chat)I have Lonnie Chisenhall as my only 3B and am wondering whether to roll the dice with Mark Reynolds to back him up. Are there any undervalued 3Bs you like this season?
(Thad from Peoria)
You should be fine with Chisenhall - and if you're going to take another flier to back him up, go with someone like Josh Donaldson, who could be very solid this year. (Bret Sayre)
2013-03-27 20:00:00 (link to chat)In a deep OBP auction league and trying to talk myself into waiting past the Alvarez/Moustakas tier and saving a few bucks by going in on Lonnie Chisenhall. With all the usual caveats about spring stats, he's walked 7 times and struck out 8 so far. How big a gap do you see from Chiz to Alvarez/Moustakas.
(Schiraldi from Baltimore)
Definitely a gap - but a much bigger one from Moose to Chisenhall than from Alvarez to Chisenhall. Think Moustakas could have a very, very nice season this year. (Bret Sayre)
2013-03-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)What are your thoughts on Lonnie Chisenhall this year? Good breakout choice?
(Cole L from Kansas City)
If I can be convinced that he's learned to draw a walk against big league pitching, then I'd say maybe. Until then, there just isn't enough of a skill set evident yet to compensate for that. (Zachary Levine)
2013-01-16 13:30:00 (link to chat)What can the Indians expect from Lonnie Chisenhall this year? Will he be able to hit lefties well enough for a full time gig?
(Dan from Cleveland)
He's always struggled against lefties, and likely always will. I do think he can play every day in spite of that though, largely because he still shows some pop against southpaws. I think he'll show more power in 2013, though it may be at the expense of his average. (Mark Anderson)
2012-12-20 14:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Daniel. In your opinion is Cleveland really going to play Lonnie Chisenhall and if so what do you think he is capable of? Also in this vein is Mastroianni going to be the CF placeholder to start the season in Minnesota at least until Aaron Hicks proves he can hit AAA pitching and is called up? Thank you.
(michaelmcduffe from ottawa)
Hi, michaelmcduffe. Given the state of the free-agent pickings, I do expect Chisenhall to start the year as Cleveland's third baseman, perhaps with Mike Aviles spelling him against some left-handed pitchers. He should offer solid defense and enough bat to be a passable regular, with a chance to become above-average down the road.

Meanwhile, the Twins don't seem to be in any rush, so Mastroianni-to-Hicks appears to be the plan. (Daniel Rathman)
2012-07-03 14:00:00 (link to chat)Last year in a keeper league I traded Trout and some assorted stuff for Cano. I won the league, my first championship in 20+ years of fantasy baseball. Cano's having a great year again, but everytime I see Trout in the box scores a little piece of me cries "what if you still had him." I know I'm being irrational. Any words of advice/comfort to talk me off the ledge of insanity?
(Paul from DC)
It's a cliche, but banners fly forever. Even for the next few years, Cano may still be more valuable than Trout anyway. The guy's amazing, and it sucks to lose him, but if you have a chance to win a championship right now, it's worth sacrificing the future a bit. Plenty of prospects fail. Had you traded Lonnie Chisenhall or Domonic Brown, you might not be feeling as bad right now (not to say they're failed prospects, but what Trout is doing is pretty rare). (Derek Carty)
2011-06-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Lawrie, Jennings, Ackley... Are you high on any prospects likely to be called up soon?
(Andrew from Las Vegas)
Yup, I like all three. You can also keep an eye on guys like Mike Moustakas, Jemile Weeks, Yonder Alonso, Anthony Rizzo, Lonnie Chisenhall, and a number of others. (Derek Carty)
2011-01-03 14:00:00 (link to chat)It seems that there isn't as much excitement regarding Lonnie Chisenhall as there was a year ago despite a solid year at AA. Is that just that he surprised a lot of people in 2009 and had big expectations in 2010, or is something else?
(Ben F. from California)
I think he's one of those players that maybe takes an unfair hit because he's not really sexy. He's a good hitter with good power, but it's hard to see him turning into a superstar. Good prospects are incredibly valuable as well. (Kevin Goldstein)
2010-10-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Should the Indians be more resigned (Jayson Nix), hopeful (Cord Phelps), risk-taking (Lonnie Chisenhall), or irrationally imaginative (trade prospects for Chone Figgins + much cash, or Travis Hafner for Figgins straight up) with their third base situation? I am not excited about a potential Brandon Inge Era.
(buffum from Austin TX)
When you are where the Indians are, I think a combination of hopeful and risk-taking is the way to go about things. The last thing we need is to bring Figgins aboard so we can have this conversation again in three years when his contract is expiring. (Marc Normandin)
2010-10-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)From an overall hitting standpoint who has a better career... Mike Moustakas, or Lonnie Chisenhall? Mike Moustakas is one of the best power hitting minor leaguers while a lot of people like Lonnie's overall game... what do you see for a future for both of these players? Thanks
(Colin from Longmeadow, MA)
Obviously, this is more a KG question than a CK question, but I'm more enthusiastic about Moustakas while liking both. The problem is whether or not the Royals fall into another way to handicap the kid's career and achieve incremental growth instead of greatness, a la Gordon or Butler or Ka'aihue or... (Christina Kahrl)
2010-10-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Regarding the third base void in Cleveland. Do you think Lonnie Chisenhall will be given a shot if he starts out well in AAA?
(Trevor from Cleveland)
I could see a situation where the Indians get a veteran to start the season then transition over to Chisenhall around the All-Star break. That's very possible. (John Perrotto)
2010-08-20 15:30:00 (link to chat)Did everyone get more a little too excited over Moustakas earlier in the year? He put up huge #s at home, mediocre #s on the road, and is just holding his own at AAA. Is he any better than Lonnie Chisenhall?
(Claudio from San Juan)
Yes, he's better. (Kevin Goldstein)
2010-05-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)Do you know the story on Lonnie Chisenhall's shoulder issue? Anything serious?
(Tony from Santa Rosa)
I believe he was activated today. (Kevin Goldstein)
2009-11-17 14:00:00 (link to chat)Kevin, Looking forward to Cleveland's List. Did Lonnie Chisenhall move up your personal list this year? What's his ceiling?
(Randy from Cleveland)
Not going to give away too much, but man oh man do I like me some Lonnie Chisenhall. (Kevin Goldstein)
2009-10-09 13:30:00 (link to chat)Where does Cord Phelps fit into the Indians' long-term plans? He looks like he is approaching a decision point, but the current middle infield of Cabrera/Valbuena seems promising and Lonnie Chisenhall is a better bet at third. Am I overrating Phelps' chances of becoming an everyday second baseman?
(buffum from Austin TX)
Probably. He has some interesting skills, but I don't think becoming an every day player in the big leagues is a sure thing or anything. (Kevin Goldstein)
