Indians' Antonetti: 2015 could be a really good year for Chisenhall
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The Indians have raved about the strides third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall has made in the offseason following an inconsistent campaign in 2014, per MLB.com. They hope the improvements don't stop once spring training begins.

"I think one of Lonnie's personal goals next year is to be more consistent from Day 1 through the end of the season," Indians general manager Chris Antonetti said. "But, you really can't script how a season is going to unfold. I think what we look at is, on balance, Lonnie had a very productive season when you look at the totality of his contributions."

Chisenhall got off to a hot start last season, batting .393 with seven home runs, 17 doubles and 32 RBI in his first 53 games (44 starts). Unfortunately, he hit just .219 with six home runs, 12 doubles and 27 RBI over his final 89 games.

A major reason for Chisenhall's decline was his success against left-handed pitchers once he became the team's regular third baseman. Prior to June 12, Chisenhall only saw left-handed pitching in 16 percent (31 out of 189) of his plate appearances, and hit .500 in those plate appearances. After June 11, Chisenhall faced lefties in 26 percent (90 out of 344) of his plate appearances and hit .222 (.564 OPS) in those at-bats.

"Lonnie worked incredibly hard at that and made great progress," Antonetti said. "So we're really excited to see how that continues, because he's such a young player. If he continues the same path he's on, next year could be a really good year for him."

Indians 3B Giovanny Urshela expected to be ready for spring training
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Indians third base prospect Giovanny Urshela, who sprained a knee ligament in a Venezuelan winter league game in November, should be ready for spring training, reports the Cleveland Plain Dealer. Urshela, 23, is considered the most skilled defensive third baseman in the organization.

He likely will begin the season at Triple-A Columbus, but "could get a look" if Lonnie Chisenhall falters, the paper said.

Chisenhall committed 18 errors in 114 games in 2014. he also hit .280 with 13 home runs and 59 RBI.
