Chisenhall placed on 7-day concussion DL

Chisenhall placed on 7-day concussion DL

The Indians' depleted outfield got even thinner on Thursday, when Lonnie Chisenhall was shelved with what manager Terry Francona described as a lower-grade concussion.

Cleveland placed Chisenhall on Major League Baseball's seven-day concussion list -- retroactive to Tuesday. With Thursday's game against the Reds postponed due to rain, the Tribe will hold off on making a subsequent roster move until Friday.

"He was experiencing concussion-like symptoms," Indians manager Terry Francona said. "You talk about a lower-grade ankle, that's one thing. But, when you're talking about a concussion, you need to err on the side of caution."

In 33 games this season, Chisenhall has hit .261 with six home runs, six doubles, 22 RBIs and an .877 OPS, while bouncing between center and right field. Chisenhall started in center and went 0-for-3 on Monday against the Reds, but he was out of the lineup on Tuesday and then informed the team on Wednesday that he was not feeling right.
