Chisenhall was in the cleanup spot on Sunday for the second game in a row for the Indians. Alomar feels trusting the young third baseman with that role is a good way to give him a boost over the final week.
"I think Chisenhall is going to grow into a role like that," Alomar said. "He's going to become a pretty good hitter. I'm just giving him a spot in the four-hole, and I hope it'll help his confidence build up like the player he's supposed to be."
During Saturday's 7-6 loss in 14 innings to the Royals, Chisenhall went 3-for-7 with a run-scoring double and a walk in his first taste of the four-hole. It marked the second three-hit game in a row for Chisenhall, continuing his solid September.
Since rejoining the Indians' lineup on Sept. 10, following a two-month stay on the disabled list due to a fractured right forearm, Chisenhall has hit .291 with two home runs and seven RBIs in 15 games for the Tribe.
"He did a great job," Alomar said of Chisenhall's first game as the cleanup hitter. "He's swinging the bat much better. I feel like I can increase his confidence level much higher."
Chisenhall went 0-for-3 in the Indians' 15-3 win on Sunday, and is batting .277 with five homers and 16 RBIs in 40 games this year.
