AKRON, OH (WKBN)-Baseball fans in the Akron area have been given a treat the last few days as all-star Michael Brantley and former Scrapper and current Indian Lonnie Chisenhall have graced Canal Park on rehab assignments.
In addition to Brantley and Chisenhall, RubberDucks fans have seen two other first round picks (in addition to Chisenhall) see extended time with AA Akron in Bradley Zimmer and Clint Fraizer.
Monday proved to be a productive night for the rehabbing Indians as Chisenhall went 1-4 with a double and a run scored. As for Brantley, the 28-year-old was held without a hit, but did walk in the 3rd inning.
Chisenhall is expected to be activated from the DL Wednesday, and Brantley could go back with the big team by next week.
Zimmer and Fraizer each had a double and an RBI in the 4-1 win.
