Lonnie Chisenhall Injury: Indians 3B Placed On DL, Jason Donald Recalled

With third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall sidelined after fracturing the ulna in his right arm on Friday, the Cleveland Indians have called up Jason Donald as a temporary replacement. According to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Donald arrived in Baltimore on Saturday and will be in uniform for the Indians' 4:05 game against the Orioles.

The 27-year-old Donald started the year as a utility infielder with Cleveland but struggled early, hitting .178 in 45 at-bats. Since being sent down to the Triple-A Columbus Clippers, he's gone 38 for 151 with two home runs and 18 RBI.

Chisenhall will be placed on the 15-day disabled list, but is expected to be out for the foreseeable future. He suffered his broken arm during Friday's game against the Orioles when he was struck by a Troy Patton pitch in the fifth inning.
