Director of sports medicine Todd Tomczyk said Wednesday that there was "no change in status" with regard to Chisenhall's recovery from left and right calf strains, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports. Chisenhall has been on the Pirates' injured list all season, initially as the result of a fractured right index finger before the calf issues cropped up in late April and mid-May while he was on minor-league rehab assignments. The Pirates shut him down after the second setback with the calf and allowed him to continue his rehab away from the team, but Tomczyk's comments suggest he hasn't made much meaningful progress in his recovery over the past three months. Pittsburgh has presumably ruled him out for the season and will likely part ways with Chisenhall when he hits free agency over the winter.
Chisenhall is seeking another opinion regarding his calf injury, John Perrotto of DKPittsburghSports.com reports. Chisenhall has been dealing with a calf injury since the end of April, and he's shown little improvement over the past month, prompting the outfielder to seek another opinion before moving forward with his recovery. This isn't an encouraging sign for Chisenhall, who was limited to just 29 big-league games last season due to a similar injury.
Chisenhall (calf) has yet to resume baseball activities and is without a clear timeline to return from the 60-day injured list, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports. Signed to a one-year deal in the offseason with the expectation he would open the campaign in a strong-side platoon role while Gregory Polanco rehabbed from shoulder surgery, Chisenhall's hopes of making the Opening Day roster were dashed when he fractured his right index finger late in spring training. That injury is no longer a concern, but Chisenhall then developed a calf issue in late April that he aggravated during his rehab assignment in May. Now nearly a month removed from any meaningful activity, Chisenhall's chances of making it back before the All-Star break appear slim.
Chisenhall is still dealing with calf discomfort, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports. Chisenhall was pulled off his rehab assignment at the end of May after experiencing renewed discomfort in his calf, and the issue apparently still hasn't improved. This certainly isn't an encouraging sign for the outfielder, who was limited to just 29 big-league games in 2018 due to a similar injury.
Chisenhall (calf) is taking a break from his rehab since his left calf is still sore, Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Chisenhall was given a few days off from his rehab assignment last week for reasons unrelated to his injury, but this time around he's been shut down due to the ongoing calf issue. The 30-year-old has missed the entirety of the season to this point and remains without a timeline for his return.
