"He moved around really well and ran the bases a couple of times," Indians manager Terry Francona said. "From all accounts, everything went well. As long as he's OK [Sunday], he'll meet us in Denver."

Chisenhall had played 33 games and hit .261 with six home runs and 22 RBIs when he went on the DL retroactive to May 23.
