Chisenhall learning much from Hannahan
ARLINGTON -- Lonnie Chisenhall will be the first to welcome back Jack Hannahan when he returns to the club for the Indians' weekend series in Minnesota.

Hannahan, out the last 10 days with a left calf muscle strain, has guided Chisenhall, his rookie understudy, during their season together, teaching the Indians' top prospect the tricks of the trade of playing third base at the Major League level.

"He's helped me a lot," Chisenhall said. "He's helped me be under control and relax more out there."

Indians manager Manny Acta said Hannahan, known for his outstanding glove during his time with Detroit, Oakland and Seattle, has been unselfish in his approach to helping out the 22-year-old third baseman.

"Having Jack with him for a few months has had a big impact on him," Acta said. "He's been unselfish in being willing to pass on whatever knowledge he has to share with him."
