Chisenhall cleared for Minors rehab game

KANSAS CITY -- Indians outfielder Lonnie Chisenhall, who has been on the seven-day concussion disabled list, received medical clearance and was scheduled to play for Double-A Akron on Saturday night.

"He's going to play right field tonight and hit second," manager Terry Francona said. "He's all set, and then we'll re-evaluate after the game."

Francona said the most important factor in determining when Chisenhall will rejoin the Indians is getting input from Chisenhall after he plays in a game.

The Indians will conclude their weekend series in Kansas City on Sunday and then have an open date on Monday before opening a series in Colorado. Chisenhall had played in 33 games and was hitting .261 with six home runs and 22 RBIs when he went on the concussion DL retroactive to May 23.
