It seems like fantasy owners have heard about Lonnie Chisenhall’s “sweet swing” that could produce high batting averages with power for years.  With an OBP under .300 entering 2014 success seemed far away, but his hot hitting has him squarely on the radar again.  He is ripping line drives on 30.1% of balls in play and has positive pitch values against every offering except splitters and knuckleballs.  It is not too late to hop on and enjoy his favorable matchups this week.
