From beat writer Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer comes word that the Indians have activated third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall from the 60-day disabled list and intend to start him on Monday evening in their series finale against the Twins.

Josh Tomlin was transferred from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list in order to clear room on Cleveland’s 40-man roster. He is out for the remainder of this season and most of 2013 after undergoing Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery.

Chisenhall has been sidelined since late June with a fractured right forearm that required surgery.

The 23-year-old was batting .278 with a .756 OPS in 74 plate appearances before hitting the shelf.

    He’ll play Monday, then sit on Tuesday so Brent Lillibridge can play 3rd.

    Great now that our saving grace is back hopefully we can clinch the bottom of the central standings.
