CLEVELAND – Indians right fielder Lonnie Chisenhall will miss 8 to 10 weeks with a strained left calf muscle.

A second medical opinion confirmed the severity of the injury.

Chisenhall suffered a Grade 3 strain while warming up before a July 2 game in Kansas City. He previously spent two months on the disabled list with a strained right calf before being activated on June 5.

The 29-year-old is hitting .321 with one homer and nine RBIs in 29 games for the AL Central leaders. He was returned to the DL on July 3.

Cleveland also placed right-hander Josh Tomlin – its longest-tenured player in his ninth season – on the DL with a strained right hamstring.

Tomlin has allowed a team-high 21 homers in 49 innings, including three in his past five appearances. He gave up a two-run shot to Cincinnati’s Scott Schebler in the ninth inning of a 7-5 loss Monday.
