Chisenhall exits with right calf injury

MLB.com

CLEVELAND -- Indians right fielder Lonnie Chisenhall left in the fourth inning of Sunday night's 5-3 loss to the Tigers at Progressive Field with a right calf injury.

"In the first inning, he broke on a ball to back up first base," acting manager Brad Mills said. "He felt a little grab in his calf, his right calf. He thought it was just like a cramp. And then he came in, I think it was the next inning, he hit the ground-ball double-play and it got worse and he still thought it was a cramp. Now it seems like it's going to be more like a mild strain-type thing."

Mills did not say whether the injury would land Chisenhall on the disabled list, but the Tribe has the All-Star break to figure that out before opening the second half in Oakland on Friday.

Brandon Guyer replaced Chisenhall in right to start the top of the fourth and went 1-for-2 with a single, a strikeout and a walk.
