Alexei Ramirez SS CWS 2 Months

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 not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Royals.

Ramirez will sit out the final day of the season -- and for just the fifth time all year -- after starting the previous 15 games. Leury Garcia will draw the start at shortstop in Ramirez's place.

Ramirez went 3-for-5 with three singles, one RBI and a run scored in Friday's win over the Rays.

Ramirez continues to swing a hot bat of late, as the veteran shortstop has now put up four multi-hit performances across his last seven games. Overall during this stretch, he is batting .355 (11-for-31) with one homer, five RBI and six runs scored.

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

Ramirez (foot) is in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Indians.

Ramirez left Friday's game after being struck by a pitch on the foot, but it appears he did not suffer anything more than a minor injury. As he has regularly done lately, Ramirez will bat second and play shortstop Saturday night.

Ramirez left Friday's game after being hit by a pitch on his foot, but he may be available Saturday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Ramirez swatted his 14th home run of the season before being lifted in the fifth inning. While he may end up missing a game or two, Ramirez's injury does not sound serious. Leury Garcia replaced Ramirez at shortstop following the injury.

Ramirez was 1-for-2 with a solo home run in the White Sox' extra-innings loss to Cleveland on Friday night.

He's had a solid season as a shortstop, swatting 14 home runs, and driving in 65 RBI to go with a .281 average. While not spectacular numbers, they have been useful for fantasy owners opting not to pursue a top tier shortstop on draft day.

Ramirez is out of the lineup Sunday against the Tigers.

Sunday represents an optimal time for manager Robin Ventura to give Ramirez a day off, since the shortstop has batted just 8-for-50 (.160) for his career against the opposing starter, right-hander Rick Porcello. It will mark Ramirez's first time out of the lineup since July 13.

Ramirez clubbed his 13th homer of the season and drove in three runs in Tuesday's loss to the Indians.

Ramirez's resurgent power has made up for the expected decline in steals after he swiped a career-high 30 bags in 2013, as the 32-year-old checks in as one of the top fantasy producers among shortstops. The White Sox would probably like to see him draw walks more frequently, but his contributions in the counting stats categories work to offset that deficiency in his game.

Ramirez went 1-for-4 as the White Sox's leadoff batter Saturday against the Jays.

Adam Eaton and Alejandro De Aza have typically served as the team's No. 1 batter this year, but Ramirez got a shot with Eaton on the DL and De Aza on the bench.
