Lonnie Chisenhall Undergoing Surgery For Forearm Fracture

Friday night, Baltimore's Troy Patton hit Cleveland's Lonnie Chisenhall with a fastball. Chisenhall was removed from the game, and first it was said that he had a wrist contusion. Then it was said that he had a wrist fracture. Then it was said that he had a forearm fracture. It's a forearm fracture that he's got, and in order to repair it, Chisenhall needs to go under the knife.

Chisenhall didn't make the injury look that bad when it first happened, but this is reasonably serious, and now we've got a timetable. If everything goes great, Chisenhall could be back with the Indians in a month. Otherwise, it'll be more than that, and that's a sentence fragment that went without saying. Glad I took the time to write it, and aren't you glad you took the time to read it?
