CLEVELAND (AP) -- Indians rookie Lonnie Chisenhall broke a nasal bone on the right side of his face when he was struck by a pitch.
Chisenhall was drilled on Thursday by Toronto's Carlos Villaneuva. The ball ricocheted off Chisenhall's ear flap and hit his cheek. Trainer Lonnie Soloff said Chisenhall visited a specialist on Friday and underwent tests at the Cleveland Clinic. Soloff said Chisenall did not suffer a concussion. The third baseman missed playing time in the minors earlier this season with a concussion.
Soloff said Chisenall could be back in a few days. The club is looking into options for him to wear a mask or a helmet with a protective bar.
As his teammates took batting practice, Chisenhall stayed behind on a clubhouse couch pressing an ice pack to his face.
