Terry Francona Remains A Big Believer In Lonnie Chisenhall At Hot Corner

Santana To Provide Flexibility Not Replace Lonnie Chisenhall

Tribe Manager Terry Francona was on MLB Network Radio and talked about Carlos Santana’s transition to third base. He also says he is still a big believer in Lonnie Chisenhall.

He explains that moving Santana to third base is a way to maximize the teams versatility and wonders if Santana handle some duties at third base awhile also serving as the backup catcher.

As for Lonnie Chisenhall and whether or not he is still a believer in him, “I’m actually a big believer,” Francona said. “I just think he’s 23 or 24 years old, he’s got bat speed, sometimes when you come to the big leagues it doesn’t come as fast as you want it to. If you have a hole or you have a weakness big league pitchers will find it.”
