The Chicago White Sox entered the All-Star break with a record of 45-51, fourth in the American League Central. Although eighth in the league in runs scored, the pitching staff will have to improve on their 25th in the league ranking in ERA if the White Sox will make a run in the second half. One of the first half bright spots has been the play of Alexei Ramirez, who was name to the All-Star team. His status for the game was iffy due to a stiff back. But it appears now that he'll be ready to go come game time tomorrow.

Our own Raymond Bureau reported that Ramirez left a game against the Cleveland Indians on July 12 in the fourth inning with a stiff back. It's unsure when the injury occurred, but in the bottom of the third he was seen stretching after attempting to field a ground ball.

Daryl Van Schouwen, who covers the White Sox for the Chicago Sun-Times, tweeted the following on Ramirez.
Ramirez, in his seventh Major League season, was name to his first All-Star game. He's batting .282 with eight home runs and 41 RBI this season. Ramirez had his best season in his rookie year, when he batted .290 with 21 home runs and 77 RBI. He's a career .278 hitter with 92 home runs and 447 RBI.
