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.

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.

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.
Jun 28 - 10:28 AM

Alexei Ramirez's struggles continued, going 0-for-4 in Thursday's loss to the Blue Jays.

Ramirez, who went 0-for-5 on Wednesday, struck out twice on the evening. His RBI-less streak continued as well, as he has not driven in a run since May 26. The shortstop is now 19-for-91 (.209) with only four extra-base hits (all doubles) in June. Overall, Ramirez still has a respectable .294/.326/.413 slash line with seven home runs, 36 RBI, and 13 stolen bases.
Jun 26 - 10:25 PM

Alexei Ramirez went 2-for-4 with a stolen base and a run scored Saturday against the Padres.

Ramirez slowed down a bit earlier this month, but he has five multi-hit games in his last eight. The 32-year-old is up to 11 stolen bases on the year, so he's currently on pace to come close to the 30 he had in 2013.
May 31 - 5:29 PM

Alexei Ramirez went 3-for-4 with a two-run homer Friday against the Yankees.

Ramirez now has seven home runs through 50 games this season. He had six all of last season. The 32-year-old has slowed down a bit this month, but he still has an impressive .325/.361/.497 batting line on the year.
May 24 - 12:37 AM

Alexei Ramirez went 1-for-3 with a walk and a stolen base as the White Sox defeated the Yankees 3-2 on Thursday.

Ramirez swiped his ninth bag on the season and moved his average up a single point. The shortstop is slashing .316/.353/.476 with 32 RBI on the season, making him one of the top offensive players at his position over the first two months of the season.
May 22 - 11:17 PM

Alexei Ramirez went 2-for-5 with a three-run homer and four RBI as the White Sox overcame the Royals' five-run first to win 7-6 on Monday.

This was a particularly ugly loss for Royals fans. Ramirez, hitting in the top half of the order for the first time all year, matched his 2013 total with his sixth homer. Manager Robin Ventura held off on moving him up for the longest time, but now it looks like Ramirez will bat third during Jose Abreu's absence, giving his fantasy value a boost.
May 20 - 12:24 AM

Alexei Ramirez went 2-for-4 and hit his sixth career grand slam Friday in the White Sox's 9-3 drubbing of the Diamondbacks.

Six grand slams is pretty good for someone with 89 homers total, but four of those came in his rookie season of 2008 and the fifth was his first homer as a sophomore, making this his first slam since April 25, 2009. He's up to 25 RBI in 37 games for the season, putting him more than halfway to his 2012 total of 48.
May 10 - 12:59 AM

Alexei Ramirez went 4-for-5 with two runs scored in Thursday's loss to the Cubs.

All four of Ramirez's hits were singles, pushing his batting average back into the mid-.300's. Ramirez had been cooling off after an incredibly hot start to the season, but is still slashing a very respectable .338/.367/.486. Don't wager too much on his ability to finish the season hitting over .300.
