Ramirez went 3-for-4 with a stolen base in a 3-2 win against the Twins on Friday.

It was only Ramirez's second steal of the season, as he's struggled in every facet of his offensive game in the season's first month-plus. He has only two homers, and his .250 average and .629 OPS are both career lows. Fantasy owners had raised expectations after Ramirez hit 15 homers and swiped 21 bags -- valuable numbers at shortstop -- last season, but his career track record has been one of wild year-to-year inconsistency. On the bright side, he's been generally better in May than he was in April, but it certainly hasn't been a drastic improvement.

Ramirez went 5-for-8 with two home runs, four RBI, and three runs scored in the White Sox's doubleheader against the Reds on Saturday.

Ramirez is not in the lineup Monday against the Orioles.

Ramirez has yet to receive a day off to this point as he's struggled out of the gate to the tune of a .203/.246/.288 slash line, so it appears the club is just giving their shortstop a regular day of rest. Gordon Beckham will fill in at short in his stead, batting seventh.

Ramirez is resting Sunday after tweaking his hamstring in Saturday's contest, Dan Hayes of CSN Chicago reports.

Ramirez has started 157 games at shortstop in 2014, but will sit for the regular season finale in favor of Leury Garcia. The minor ailment shouldn't have an effect on Ramirez's outlook heading into next season.

Ramirez is out of the lineup Thursday against the A's, Scott Merkin of reports.

Ramirez owns a healthy 6-for-19 career mark against Thursday's starter Scott Kazmir, but manager Robin Ventura has opted to rest 32-year-old shortstop for just the second time since the All-Star break. Marcus Semien will take over at short with Carlos Sanchez moving up to the two-hole in the batting order. Ramirez was hit by a pitch on his foot last weekend, so that may have played a role in Ventura's decision.
