A first round pick in the 2008 draft, expectations were high for Cleveland Indians 3B Lonnie Chisenhall. The 3B of the future for the Tribe, Chisenhall made his major league debut in 2011 after a successful minor league run, responding by hitting 7 HR in 223 PA. He was never able to hold the job down though, spending 2012 and 2013 bouncing between the majors and minors.
The inconsistency was enough that the Indians moved Carlos Santana to 3B over the winter to share time with Chisenhall. That seemed to be all the motivation Chisenhall needed as he has finally secured the starting job in Cleveland and helped force the Indians to ditch the Santana-to-3B experiment.
Now that Chisenhall is finally living up to expectations, the question for keeper league owners is whether Chisenhall is a keeper.
