CLEVELAND (AP) - The Indians have optioned struggling starting third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall to Triple-A Columbus.
Chisenhall, who was given the everyday job in spring training, is batting .213 with three home runs and 11 RBIs. Chisenhall went 0 for 3 on Sunday with two strikeouts in a win at Detroit and is hitless in his last 11 at_bats.
The Indians had high hopes for the 24-year-old Chisenhall, who split time between Cleveland and Columbus last season. He batted .268 in 43 games for the Indians.
The team brought up left-hander David Huff before playing a traditional doubleheader Monday against the New York Yankees.
Mark Reynolds, who has played at first and designated hitter, started at third in the opener. The Indians can also use utility man Mike Aviles at third.
