The Indians may be down one player for Game 5 as right fielder Lonnie Chisenhall is sick.

Manager Terry Francona said Chisenhall was stricken with a stomach bug Sunday afternoon. He came with the team to Wrigley Field, but the Indians sent him back to the hotel so he wouldn't infect any other players. Chisenhall is getting rest and liquids, but Francona won't know until closer to game time whether he will be available.

Chisenhall is just 1 for 13 in the Series.

Brandon Guyer is starting in right field, but that was the plan all along.
