Alexei Ramirez hit a two-run home run in the ninth inning to give the White Sox a 4-3 win over the Indians on Sunday.
Ramirez is absolutely on fire to start 2014, and Sunday was just another example. Facing Indians closer John Axford, Ramirez took a letter-high pitch over the left field fences. It was his third homer of the campaign, and the shortstop is batting a ridiculous .420/.463/.680 in the early going. Apr 13 - 8:49 PM

Alexei Ramirez continued his hot-hitting Friday night against the Indians, going 2-for-4 with an RBI, a stolen base, and a run scored.

Ramirez has now hit safely in all 11 games this season. Seven of them are multi-hit games. He has a ridiculous .429/.469/.667 batting line at the moment. Not bad for a No. 8 hitter.
Apr 12 - 12:12 AM

Batting eighth for the White Sox, Alexei Ramirez went 2-for-4 with a homer and three RBI versus the Indians on Thursday.

It's kind of odd that the White Sox have shied away from hitting Ramirez high in the order, especially in light of his hot start. But Robin Ventura isn't one to try to fix what isn't broken, and the White Sox have been scoring plenty of runs in the early going. Ramirez deserves plenty of credit; he's batting .421 with two homers and nine RBI.
Apr 11 - 12:01 AM

Alexei Ramirez went 2-for-3 with a two-run double and two walks as the White Sox edged the Twins 7-6 in 11 innings Wednesday.

The game ended on a wild pitch from Samuel Deduno, scoring Leury Garcia. Ramirez is 4-for-6 after two games, so he's already making a case to bat higher in the lineup. He finished last season batting second and third, but he's hit eighth and seventh in Robin Ventura's first two lineups this year.
Apr 2 - 6:49 PM

Alexei Ramirez went 4-for-4 with a double, two RBI, and a run scored against the Brewers on Monday.

Ramirez has had a slow spring, so a four-hit day is nice to see. However, Ramirez has finished with an OPS below .700 in each of the past two seasons. He did steal 50 bases in those seasons, which keeps him fantasy-relevant.
Mar 17 - 7:30 PM

Alexei Ramirez went 2-for-3 with a triple and an RBI in a losing effort against the Diamondbacks on Saturday.

The 32-year-old shortstop is off to a strong start this spring, hitting .353 (6-for-17) while striking out just once. His power numbers have deteriorated in recent seasons, but he's made up for it with a sharp increase in his stolen base totals. After the upper-echelon shortstops are off the board, he makes for a very attractive option in the middle rounds.
Mar 8 - 10:04 PM

Alexei Ramirez went 3-for-3 against the Royals on Thursday.

Ramirez finally got his first hits in Cactus League play, all singles. The 32-year-old has been lackluster with the bat, but has been a good source of steals, having stolen 50 of them over the last two seasons.
Mar 6 - 6:26 PM

Alexei Ramirez went 4-for-4 with his fifth homer and his 38th double Monday against the Twins.

Ramirez went seven straight games without scoring and 11 straight without driving in a run before his big game tonight. Apparently, he just likes facing the Twins; four of his five homers have come against Minnesota.

Alexei Ramirez went 2-for-3 with two runs scored as the White Sox came from behind to beat the Astros 4-3 on Tuesday.

Ramirez had a hand in both of the White Sox' run-scoring innings, as he scored in the fourth inning to tie the game before scoring again in the definitive three-run eighth inning. Ramirez also stole a base, his 26th of the year, and the shortstop is hitting .287 with 57 runs scored.
Wed, Aug 28, 2013 12:37:00 AM

Alexei Ramirez went 3-for-4 with a double, homer, three RBI and two runs scored as the White Sox beat the Twins 5-2 on Sunday.

Ramirez has hit safely in 13 of his last 14 games, spiking his batting average from .275 to .289. Despite beginning August 1-for-11 in his first three games, Ramirez is batting .338 with three homers and 13 RBI over 77 at-bats this month.

Alexei Ramirez went 1-for-5 with a solo homer as the White Sox dropped the nightcap of Friday's doubleheader against the Twins.

Ramirez batted third for the first time in his career earlier in the day, and responded by hitting just his second home run of the season. So logically, White Sox manager Robin Ventura left him in that slot for the second game, and Ramirez knocked another one over the boards. If he remains in this slot with the departure of Alex Rios, it could be a serious boon to his fantasy value.

Batting third for the first time in his career, Alexei Ramirez had a two-run homer and a two-run single in the first game of Friday's doubleheader against the Twins.

Well, now it's obvious Ramirez should have been batting third all along; he'd have 20 homers now instead of two. Ramirez entered the game with just 29 RBI all season. He's been hitting for average and stealing bases, but the lack of power and poor play of the hitters around him has really held him back as a fantasy shortstop. Maybe it will help if he continues to bat third with Alex Rios gone.
Fri, Aug 9, 2013 05:58:00 PM

Alexei Ramirez finished with four hits and two RBI against the Yankees on Monday.

Ramirez remains stuck on one homer for the season, but he's been consistently hitting singles and doubles since Opening Day. Unfortunately, because the rest of the lineup has been so weak, all it's gotten him is 45 runs scored and 29 RBI in 110 games.
Mon, Aug 5, 2013 11:46:00 PM

Alexei Ramirez went 3-for-4 with a double, RBI and two runs scored as the White Sox lost to the Braves on Friday.

Ramirez is now riding an eight-game hitting streak, which has boosted his batting average to .291. The veteran's average is mostly empty calories, as Ramirez has hit just one homer and posted a .681 OPS over 375 at-bats. His wheels have redeemed his fantasy value: Ramirez is on pace for 35 steals. With 20 swipes in 2013, Ramirez has already matched his career-high total, set last season.

Alexei Ramirez is back in the White Sox' lineup Friday.

Ramirez had to exit Thursday's game with right leg cramps, but he's fine. He returns to a .282/.309/.353 batting line with one homer and 19 steals.
