Alexei Ramirez SS CWS 8 Days

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.

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.
