Rookie Indians third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall left the game in the bottom of the second inning Thursday night after being struck in the head by an errant pitch from Blue Jays' starter Carlos Villanueva. Chisenhall was replaced by Jack Hannahan at third base. Chisenhall was bleeding and is reportedly being treated for bruises under left eye. The official word from the Indians is that he has a facial contusion (Paul Hoynes via Twitter).
Chisenhall, 22, is a highly touted prospect in the Indians' system and is 8 for 30 after his recent promotion. Three of those hits have been doubles and, Wednesday night, he hit his first career home run in a win over the Yankees. A concern likely won't be as much the bruise as it will be a possible concussion. He suffered one earlier this season playing in Triple-A and missed nine games. The MLB is heavily monitoring head injuries this season.
