Indians | Lonnie Chisenhall working on swing

Cleveland Indians manager Terry Francona said hitting coach Ty Van Burkleo has spotted a problem with 3B Lonnie Chisenhall's swing and that Chisenhall is working on solving the problem. "All spring he was thinking left-center," Francona said. "Not necessarily wanting to hit the ball there, but being lined up so he could cover the plate. And he did it extremely well. I think as he continued into the season, his batting stance started to close off more and more and more, and I don't think he realized it." Francona said he will look to give Chisenhall more days off against left-handed pitchers.
