White Sox SS Alexei Ramirez enjoys best game of season


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/9/2015) White Sox shortstop Alexei Ramirez began last season on fire. This year? Cold as ice.

But Ramirez has been heating up and he managed his first three-hit game Saturday against Cincinnati. He hit a two-run homer in the second, doubled and scored in the fourth and capped his night with an RBI single and run in the seventh.

Ramirez now owns a slash line of .237/.269/.381. Nothing spectacular - but all three numbers represent a season-high.


White Sox SS Alexei Ramirez connects for 100th-career home run


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/9/2015) White Sox shortstop Alexei Ramirez hit his first home run of the season Saturday, a seventh-inning solo homer to break up Reds starter Johnny Cueto's shutout.

The home run was Ramirez's 100th of his career, becoming the 10th Cuban-born player to reach that mark.

Ramirez hit 15 home runs last season and his season high is 21, tallied during his rookie season in 2008.

Ventura explains lineup moves of White Sox


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/30/2015) The lineup move Thursday made by White Sox manager Robin Ventura in which Alexei Ramirez was elevated to the second spot and Melky Cabrera dropped to third was done on a bit of a whim.

"It hasn't really jelled just yet so something to mix it up," Ventura told the Chicago Tribune. "Alexei has done well in the past hitting second."

Ramirez owns a .277 lifetime batting average hitting in the second spot, which is two points higher than his overall mark.

It is hope the switch will get Cabrera going. His .296 slugging percentage is 162 points lower than what he achieved in 2014. He has no home runs and five RBI.

The double was the third of the year for Ramirez, who has hit .184/.250/.263 with no home runs and eight RBI in 38 at-bats.
