Alexei Ramirez went 0-for-3 with a walk and a strikeout in Friday's loss to the Indians.

Ramirez wasn't alone in scuffling through the contest, as the Indians out-played the White Sox in every facet of the game. While he didn't have a hit, Ramirez has now walked six times in his last three games, so there's that. He's hitting .251/.288/.358 with 10 homers, 57 RBI and 17 steals, providing fantasy owners with a nice little combo of power and speed. The average and on-base percentage numbers remain underwhelming.

Ramirez hit his three-run homer off of Royals starter Danny Duffy in the fourth inning to pace the White Sox to a 3-0 lead. They would ultimately win 6-1. For the season, the 33-year-old shortstop has hit nine homers and driven in 54 runs while maintaining a .253/.283/.359 triple-slash over 490 at-bats.

Alexei Ramirez went 1-for-4 with a two-run single in Sunday's loss to the Royals.

The White Sox fell behind 3-0 after one inning, but came back with a three-spot of their own in the third inning. Ramirez had the key hit in the frame, a shallow single that drove in two runs. It would be his only hit of the game. For the season, the 33-year-old shortstop is hitting a light .236/.262/.344 with seven homers, 40 RBI and 14 steals.
Aug 9 - 5:23 PM

Alexei Ramirez was 3-for-5 with a two-run double, two steals, and a run scored against the Indians on Friday.

Ramirez continues to show signs of life. While the 33-year-old has a disappointing .234/.260/.317 batting line on the year, he's hitting .328 (20-for-61) this month. He's up to 13 steals on the year, so he still has a chance to reach 20 for the third straight season.

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

Ramirez had to be lifted from Thursday's game after fouling a ball off his left ankle. X-rays came back negative, though, and he's expected to be fine.
Jul 10 - 12:51 PM

Alexei Ramirez hopes to play Friday after X-rays came back negative on his left ankle.

Ramirez sat out Thursday's game after fouling a ball off his foot on Wednesday. He's still dealing with some swelling, so it's no sure thing he'll play Friday, but the good news is that X-rays didn't show anything serious.
Jul 9 - 5:19 PM

Alexei Ramirez is out of the White Sox lineup on Thursday due to a bruised foot.

Ramirez fouled a ball off his foot on Wednesday night and is undergoing X-rays. Gordon Beckham will start at shortstop in Thursday's series finale against Toronto.
Jul 9 - 11:53 AM

Alexei Ramirez went 2-for-4 with a stolen base in Tuesday's loss to the Blue Jays.

Ramirez had two of the team's seven hits in the loss. He's quietly been improving at the plate in recent days, going 9-for-18 during a six-game hitting streak. Unfortunately for Ramirez, he's needed it to simply pull his overall line up to .230/.256/.301 in what has been a disastrous first half. The shortstop does have 10 stolen bases after Tuesday's theft.
Jul 7 - 11:20 PM

Alexei Ramirez is not in the White Sox lineup Thursday.

Gordon Beckham will start at shortstop and bat second against Tigers right-hander Alfredo Simon. It's just a day of rest for Ramirez, who should return on Friday.
Jun 25 - 10:13 AM

Alexei Ramirez went 2-for-4 with an RBI double in Saturday's loss to the Tigers.

Ramirez doubled home Emilio Bonifacio in the third inning to give the White Sox a 1-0 lead. This would be their high point of the game, as David Price absolutely shut them down the rest of the way. Ramirez is hitting a dismal .236/.257/.325 this season, but he's currently in the midst of a five-game hitting streak and does have four hits in his last eight at-bats.
Jun 6 - 10:47 PM

Alexei Ramirez is out of the starting lineup for the second game of Thursday's doubleheader against the Orioles.

Gordon Beckham will start at shortstop and bat fifth. This will be his first start at shortstop this season and just the third of his career.
May 28 - 4:26 PM

Inserted into the two hole, Alexei Ramirez doubled twice in five at-bats Thursday against the Twins.

Manager Robin Ventura didn't move Ramirez up because he deserved it, but to try to get him going; he entered the night with a .194/.235/.274 line in 62 at-bats. Ramirez ended up having a good game, but the rest of the team didn't. Sixth is where Ramirez belongs in the lineup -- even during his fine 2014, he had just a .305 OBP -- but he gets a value boost for however long he hits second.
Apr 30 - 11:13 PM

Alexei Ramirez is not in the White Sox starting lineup Monday versus the Orioles.

It's just a day of rest for Ramirez. Gordon Beckham is starting at shortstop and Conor Gillaspie is playing third base Monday against O's righty Ubaldo Jimenez.
