The Cleveland Indians activated third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall from the disabled list yesterday and expect him to be in the starting line-up today, reports Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer:

Third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall rejoined the Indians before Sunday's game against the Twins. He's scheduled to play his first game in over two months Monday night.

Chisenhall suffered a broken ulna bone above his right wrist on June 29 when he was hit by a Troy Patton pitch at Camden Yards. Surgery was needed to correct the break.

The 23-year-old Chisenhall has been on a rehab assignment for the last few days, playing three games in a playoff series with the Double-A Akron Aeros. Chisenhall went two for ten in the three games, plating an RBI single in Saturday's game.

Manager Manny Acta did not expect the left-handed-hitting third baseman to return this season and realizes that Chisenhall might not quite be at full strength, so he will ease the youngster back into the line-up over the team's final twenty-three games.

Chisenhall played in twenty-four games for the Indians this season before breaking his arm, hitting .278/.297/.458 with three home runs in seventy-four plate appearances. Right-hander Josh Tomlin, who is recovering from Tommy John surgery, was transferred to the 60-day DL to make room for Chisenhall on the roster.
