Pirates' Lonnie Chisenhall: Seeking another opinion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Pirates' Lonnie Chisenhall: Remains idle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Pirates' Lonnie Chisenhall: Still dealing with soreness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Pirates' Lonnie Chisenhall: Still battling calf soreness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Pirates' Lonnie Chisenhall: Transferred to 60-day IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chisenhall (calf) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Saturday.

Chisenhall has been out all season, first with a broken finger and now with calf soreness. He's currently on a non-injury-related break from his latest rehab assignment. The transaction has no effect on his return timeline, as he's already missed 60 days. It's not clear when he's actually expected to return.

Pirates' Lonnie Chisenhall: Break unrelated to injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chisenhall's (calf) absence from his rehab stint since Wednesday isn't due to his injury, general manager Neal Huntington told 93.7 The Fan on Sunday.

"Lonnie's healthy -- he asked to take a short period of time and get some things in order and we've been supportive of his ask to do that," Huntington said. Chisenhall has five hits in 24 at-bats during his rehab stint, split over two periods in April and May. He has yet to debut for Pittsburgh.

Pirates' Lonnie Chisenhall: Break from rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chisenhall (calf) has been given a few days off from his rehab assignment, though no setback has occurred, Shaun O'Neill of MLB.com reports.

Chisenhall began his most recent rehab assignment on May 14, but he hasn't appeared in a game since May 15. While there is no reported setback, the timing is curious as Chisenhall had two hits -- including a double -- in his most recent performance. His continued absence will keep Melky Cabrera and Bryan Reynolds in the lineup more regularly.

Pirates' Lonnie Chisenhall: To begin rehab stint Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chisenhall (calf) will start a rehab assignment with Triple-A Indianapolis on Tuesday, John Perrotto of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

Chisenhall figures to need at least a handful of games in the minor leagues before coming off the injured list, considering he hasn't played thus far in 2019. He'll be a candidate for starts at the hot corner once deemed healthy, with Colin Moran and Jung Ho Kang struggling to get the job done.

Pirates' Lonnie Chisenhall: Nearing minor league rehab
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chisenhall (calf) is expected to begin a rehab stint "sometime this week," general manager Neal Huntington said on his weekly radio show on 93.7 The Fan.

Huntington said Chisenhall will be ready for a rehab stint, provided he felt okay after his Sunday work. With both Colin Moran and Jung Ho Kang both struggling at third base, Chisenhall could see playing time at the hot corner when he returns. He hasn't appeared in a game at third base since 2016, however, and holds a career fielding percentage of .943 at third.

Pirates' Lonnie Chisenhall: Goes through lateral drills
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chisenhall (calf) took part in lateral cone drills Friday and is expected to run the bases over the weekend, Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

As anticipated, Chisenhall has slowly begun to ramp up his baseball activities, and he'll take a big step forward if he can run the bases this weekend. If successful, he'll likely need a rehab stint prior to his activation from the injured list.

Pirates' Lonnie Chisenhall: Ramping up baseball activities
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chisenhall (calf) is expected to run the bases soon, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

Chisenhall was pulled from his rehab assignment at the end of April after experiencing tightness in his calf, but it sounds like he's close to heading back out on another rehab stint, assuming he avoids any setbacks while running the bases. The outfielder remains without a timetable for his return, though one will hopefully come into focus once he begins his rehab assignment.

Pirates' Lonnie Chisenhall: Taking BP on Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chisenhall (calf) will run and take batting practice Tuesday, Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Chisenhall was pulled from his rehab assignment after dealing with tightness in his calf, though it appears that he's beginning to ramp up his baseball activities once again. If Tuesday's drills go well, he's expected to participate in more "side-to-side stuff" Wednesday, per Brink.

Pirates' Lonnie Chisenhall: Cleared for light activities
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chisenhall (calf, finger) has been cleared to resume light baseball activities, John Perrotto of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

Chisenhall, who was rehabbing a broken index finger with Triple-A Indianapolis, was pulled off his rehab assignment after the outfielder experienced tightness in his calf while running the bases. It's unclear how much time this setback will cost Chisenhall, though the Pirates figure to handle him with care after calf issues forced him to miss most of the 2018 campaign.

Pirates' Lonnie Chisenhall: Dealing with calf issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chisenhall (finger) felt tightness in his calf while running the bases Saturday, Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Chisenhall is on a rehab assignment for a broken right index finger and could have been close to a return. His timeline will now presumably be pushed back after the calf issues which cost him most of 2018 appear to have returned. It's not yet clear how serious the setback is.

Pirates' Lonnie Chisenhall: To play infield, outfield in minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Clint Hurdle said Chisenhall (finger) would receive time at first and third base during his rehab assignment at Triple-A Indianapolis in addition to his normal duties in the corner outfield, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

Chisenhall's broken right index finger is fully healed, but he could stay on the rehab assignment for close to the full 20 days in order to pick up at-bats after the injury sidelined him for the past month. With Gregory Polanco (shoulder) beating him back from the IL and Corey Dickerson (shoulder) and Starling Marte (abdomen) also entering the outfield mix at some point down the road, Chisenhall will take reps at the two corner-infield spots in an effort to improve his playing-time outlook upon returning. Chisenhall broke into the big leagues as a third baseman, so he should have a fairly seamless transition as he gets familiar with infield work again.

Pirates' Lonnie Chisenhall: Rehab assignment begins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chisenhall (finger) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Indianapolis on Friday.

A broken right index finger has kept Chisenhall sidelined since the start of the regular season. His role once he returns will be determined in part by whether Gregory Polanco and Corey Dickerson are still out with their shoulder injuries.

Pirates' Lonnie Chisenhall: Rehab assignment on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chisenhall (finger) could begin his rehab assignment with Triple-A Indianapolis this weekend, John Perrotto of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

Chisenhall was placed on the 10-day injured list at the end of March with a fractured right index finger. Gregory Polanco (shoulder) is due back within the next week and Corey Dickerson (shoulder) figures to return in early May, at the latest. As a result, Chisenhall may find himself filling in at first base and third base in addition to the corner outfield spots. Melky Cabrera, Pablo Reyes, J.B. Shuck, and Jason Martin continue to split time in the outfield corners while the starters remain out of action.

Pirates' Lonnie Chisenhall: Timetable remains uncertain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chisenhall (finger) will be reevaluated in 10 days, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.

Chisenhall was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday with a fractured right index finger. The outfielder was originally handed a 4-to-6 week recovery timeline, but medical director Todd Tomczyk said it would be "inaccurate right now" to say he'll be sidelined for that long. Chisenhall will be shut down for the next 10 days before being reassessed. In the meantime, look for Melky Cabrera, who is starting in right field Thursday, and Pablo Reyes to see the majority of opportunities while Chisenhall is sidelined.

Pirates' Lonnie Chisenhall: Hits IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chisenhall (fractured right index finger) was placed on the 10-day IL, Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

It was revealed just hours before the first game of the season that Chisenhall's injury was much worse than anticipated. Melky Cabrera, who is starting in right field Thursday, and Pablo Reyes figure to get the bulk of the playing time while Chisenhall is out. This also resulted in J.B. Shuck making the team, so he could get a start every now and then. Chisenhall will be reassessed in 10 days.

Pirates' Lonnie Chisenhall: Out 4-6 weeks with broken hand
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chisenhall has been diagnosed with a broken hand and will miss 4-to-6 weeks, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

This explains why he wasn't able to get ready for Opening Day, which was the hope as recently as Tuesday. Melky Cabrera, who is starting in right field Thursday, and Pablo Reyes figure to get the bulk of the playing time while Chisenhall is out.
