Alexei Ramirez doubled twice and scored a run in four at-bats as the White Sox suffered a walk-off loss to the Tigers on Tuesday.

Ramirez helped start a White Sox rally down by three runs in the ninth, doubling to put runners on second and third with no outs. He would later score on an Avisail Garcia single, and the White Sox would soon thereafter temporarily tie the game. Ramirez has turned in a decent season, batting .276/.308/.415 with 15 home runs, 72 RBI, 21 stolen bases, and 81 runs scored.

Alexei Ramirez doubled and homered as the White Sox won the first half of Saturday's doubleheader against the Twins.

Ramirez hit a two-run shot off Phil Hughes in the bottom of the third inning and then doubled and scored in the bottom of the eighth, finishing the afternoon tilt with two RBI and two runs scored. He has a .275/.309/.417 slash line with 15 homers, 67 RBI, and 75 runs scored in 144 games this season.

Alexei Ramirez hit a solo home run on Friday.

The solo shot came in the third inning off of Indians' starter T.J. House. It was his fourteenth home run of the season. The RBI was Ramirez's 65th of the season. Unfortunately, he was hit in the left foot by a pitch in the fifth inning and had to leave the game. He finished 1-for-2 officially. This season, Ramirez has been a solid hitter in the White Sox lineup, slashing .281/.315/.422. It remains to be seen how much time, if any, the shortstop will miss. For now, consider him day-to-day.
Sep 5 - 11:14 PM

Alexei Ramirez left Friday's game in the fifth inning after getting hit on the left foot by a pitch.

Ramirez was in a great deal of pain, so it's possible there's a break in there. Marcus Semien will likely fill in at shortstop while he's out, opening up more playing time for Carlos Sanchez at second base. Semien has the greater value in fantasy leagues.
Sep 5 - 8:22 PM

Alexei Ramirez went 2-for-5 with a home run, two runs scored and three RBI in Tuesday's loss to the Indians.

Ramirez hit a two-run home run off Indians starter T.J. House in the fifth inning. The homer was his 13th of the year and his second in the last two games. A resurgent August after a down couple of months has Ramirez' season line back up to .286/.319/.424.

Alexei Ramirez homered and scored three runs in helping to lead the White Sox to a decisive victory over the Twins in Minnesota on Friday.

He finished the night 2-for-5, with his solo blast coming off opposing starter Kevin Correia in the third inning. The All-Star shortstop has been one of the finest offensive weapons at the shortstop position this season, slashing .283/.321/.401 with nine homers, 44 RBI and 17 stolen bases.
Jul 25 - 11:12 PM

Alexei Ramirez went 2-for-3 with two stolen bases in Tuesday's loss to the Royals.

Jul 23 - 12:16 AM

Alexei Ramirez (back) returned to the White Sox lineup on Friday, going 0-for-4 in a victory over the Astros.

Ramirez sat out the last two games of the first half due to stiffness in his back, but felt good enough to suit up for the All-Star Game. The 32-year-old shortstop is enjoying a fine season offensively, hitting .279/.315/.396 with eight homers, 41 RBI and 15 stolen bases.
Jul 19 - 6:20 AM

Alexei Ramirez (back) confirmed Sunday that he will be ready to go for Tuesday's All-Star Game.

Ramirez left Saturday's game due to stiffness in his back and sat out on Sunday, but he'll suit up and be ready for action in the Mid-Summer Classic. Fantasy owners can expect to have him back in their lineups on Friday.
Jul 13 - 4:53 PM

Alexei Ramirez (back) thinks he'll be available to play in the All-Star game.

Ramirez exited Saturday's game with back stiffness and will surely sit out Sunday, but he doesn't think it's a big issue. "I don’t think it’s going to be a major thing,’’ said Ramirez. The White Sox could still decide to play it safe and hold the shortstop out of the All-Star festivities.
Jul 13 - 9:43 AM

Alexei Ramirez left Saturday's game with back stiffness.

Ramirez tweaked his back in the bottom of the third inning while attempting to make a play on a groundball. The shortstop will likely sit out Sunday but should return to the White Sox starting lineup after the All-Star break.
Jul 12 - 4:15 PM

Alexei Ramirez left Saturday's game versus the Indians due to an apparent injury.

Ramirez appeared to tweak something in his leg in the bottom of the third inning when he shifted from covering second base on a hit-and-run to trying to field a single to his right. He was 0-for-1 prior to leaving the game. Moises Sierra replaced him as a pinch-runner.
Jul 12 - 4:07 PM

Alexei Ramirez went 2-for-4 with a double in Sunday's win over the Blue Jays.

Ramirez has cooled off considerably after an inferno-hot start to the season, entering Sunday's action with a .542 OPS in the month of June. Nevertheless, Ramirez is still slashing .298/.329/.426 with eight home runs, 39 RBI, and 13 stolen bases.
Jun 29 - 3:52 PM

Alexei Ramirez is not in the White Sox starting lineup for Saturday's contest against the Blue Jays.

He has been scuffling a bit at the plate recently, hitting just .203/.213/.297 with one homer, two RBI and 11 strikeouts over his last 18 games, so it appears manager Robin Ventura may want him to have a mental health day. Leury Garcia is getting the start at shortstop and hitting ninth for the White Sox on Saturday.
