Indians put Lonnie Chisenhall on DL with calf strain, recall Tyler Naquin

The Cleveland Indians placed outfielder Lonnie Chisenhall on the 10-day disabled list Sunday with a right calf strain.

Manager Terry Francona, citing early indications, said that Chisenhall could be sidelined for four to six weeks.

Cleveland announced the move before Sunday’s game against the Kansas City Royals. Chisenhall suffered the injury in Saturday’s loss to the Kansas City Royals.

Outfielder Tyler Naquin was recalled from Triple-A Columbus to replace Chisenhall on the active roster and will start in right field Sunday.

Chisenhall is batting .235 in 17 at-bats this season. Naquin began the season with the Indians and started in left field on Opening Day. He is batting .167 with one home run and two RBIs in 12 at-bats this season.

Another injured starter is exactly what the Angels don’t need with Matt Shoemaker and Andrew Heaney already on the shelf in their six-man rotation, but it’s no surprise for a team that struggled with injured starters throughout the previous two seasons.

“You walk 10 guys, and you’re not going to be in many games,” Scioscia said. “We were only OK because our bullpen kept it close.”

Brown is considered a potential late first-round pick even though he had a disappointing sophomore season that ended after 19 games because of a left foot injury requiring surgery.

He averaged 11.4 points and shot 27 percent from 3-point range for the Hurricanes, who went 22-10 and lost in the first round of the NCAA tournament.

The Flyers’ captain scored his first two goals during Philadelphia’s dominating second period in which it outscored the Rangers 3-0 thanks in part to an 18-5 shots advantage.

Giroux put the Flyers ahead 2-0 with 7:36 left in the second when his shot from the left circle got through Henrik Lundqvist’s legs after a screen by Nolan Patrick.

Raffl made it a three-goal lead when he took the rebound of Radko Gudas’ shot from the point with a turnaround shot that got past Lundqvist’s right pad with 2:07 left in the period.buccaneers_080
