Indians place 3B Chisenhall on paternity list

Posted: Updated:

CLEVELAND (AP) - The Indians have placed third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall on the paternity list and recalled infielder Justin Sellers from Triple-A Columbus.

Chisenhall is batting .400 (6 of 15) so far this season for the Indians, who open a four-game series Thursday in Chicago against the White Sox. Chisenhall has gotten a hit in all five games he's played.

Chisenhall remained in Cleveland with his wife, Meredith, for the birth of the couple's second child. Players can remain on the paternity list for up to three days.

The Indians acquired Sellers on March 2 from the Dodgers. He appeared in 13 games this spring with Cleveland, batting .450 (9 of 20) with three doubles and three RBIs. He opened the season at Columbus and hit .158 (3-for-19) in six games.
