Alexei Ramirez's ability to hit to all fields key to success


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/13/2014) White Sox shortstop Alexei Ramirez is off to a great start this season, entering Sunday's game against the Indians with a 12-game hitting streak and batting .413.

Ramirez leads the AL in average and hits (19), and he ranks among the leaders in multi-hit games (tied for first, seven), OPS (third, 1.090), slugging percentage (fourth, .630), on-base percentage (fourth, .460) and RBI (tied for fourth, 10).

Ramirez said using the whole field has been key to his success, per MLB.com.

"Pitchers are trying to pitch, and if I hit them good on one side, they are looking for another," Ramirez said through translator and White Sox manager of cultural development Lino Diaz. "So I've been lucky to be able to pretty much hit the ball where it's pitched. If I'm getting hits in one area, then they are throwing to other areas. I've been waiting for [the pitcher] in that area too.

"Everything is about the preparation, I believe. You know, this year I've been working on that and being prepared. I have my routine and, obviously, things have been good."

Alexei Ramirez changing his approach


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/21/2013) White Sox shortstop Alexei Ramirez hit 15 or more home runs in four of his previous five seasons, but he is focusing on becoming a more well-rounded hitter this season. Ramirez has just one home run in his first 70 games this season, though his .277 batting average is the highest it has been since 2010.

Ramirez has spent more than half the season hitting No. 2 in the order, and he is hitting .284 in that spot. He told MLB.com Friday he is trying to focus on putting the ball in play more in that role, which could explain the diminished power production, and manager Robin Ventura agreed.

"Batting second is probably some of it," Ventura said. "He has power, but he's trying to use that [right-side] hole a little bit more when guys are on first base. The weather at the start of our season probably didn't help. But as it warms up, I think he'll probably be hitting some home runs."


White Sox trying to find rest for Alexei Ramirez


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(6/19/2013) White Sox shortstop Alexei Ramirez has been an everyday player all season as he's played in 69 of 69 games for Chicago, MLB.com reports Wednesday. Ramirez hasn't missed a game all year, though manager Robin Ventura would like to get him a rest before the All-Star break. 

"I think it'll help," Ventura said. "You would like to, but you can't guarantee that. You'd like to get him a day somewhere in here that you can -- maybe even get in around one of those off-days, so you can make it an extra day. It might not happen, but I think right now if we were able to do it, Gordon [Beckham] would go over to shortstop."

The 31-year-old Ramirez is batting .268 this season with 14 RBI and 14 stolen bases. He's been pretty warm of late with 10 hits in his last 30 at-bats.
