CLEVELAND (AP) — White Sox All-Star shortstop Alexei Ramirez is out of Sunday’s lineup due to a stiff back.

Ramirez was removed from Saturday’s game in the fourth inning. He said following the game that he expected to play in Tuesday’s All-Star game in Minneapolis.

Ramirez is batting .282 with eight homers, 41 RBIs and 15 stolen bases in 95 games.

Shortstop Carlos Sanchez, called up from Triple-A Charlotte, is making his major league debut and is batting second. He was added to the roster when right-hander Andre Rienzo was optioned to Charlotte.
