Lonnie David Chisenhall (born October 4, 1988) is an American professional baseball third baseman in the Cleveland Indians organization. He was selected in the 2006 MLB Draft, but attended college at the University of South Carolina rather than entering the draft. After a disciplinary issue in his freshman year, he transferred to Pitt Community College before being selected in the 2008 MLB Draft by the Cleveland Indians.

Chisenhall made his MLB debut in June 2011. In 2012, he finished with a .260 batting average, 12 home runs, and 38 runs batted in.

Minor leagues

Chisenhall was drafted by the Pittsburgh Pirates in the 11th round of the 2006 Major League Baseball Draft but chose to attend University of South Carolina. Chisenhall played for the South Carolina Gamecocks baseball team in his freshman year, but was dismissed from the team after being charged with breaking into a dorm room and stealing electronic equipment.[1] He then transferred to Pitt Community College.

He was drafted by Cleveland Indians 29th overall in the 2008 MLB Draft.[2] In 2009 and 2010, he played with the AA Akron Aeros.

Major leagues

On June 27, 2011, Chisenhall was promoted from the Class AAA Columbus Clippers, and went 2-for-4 in his major league debut against the Arizona Diamondbacks.[3]

On July 6, 2011 Chisenhall hit his first major league home run, off of Boone Logan of the New York Yankees.[4]

On July 7, 2011, Chisenhall was hit with a fastball thrown by Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Carlos Villanueva and had to leave the game with facial contusions.[5]

On May 13, 2013, Chisenhall was sent down to the Class AAA Columbus Clippers.[6] He was recalled on June 18.
