Injuries won't prevent Peavy, Ramirez from playing

BALTIMORE -- White Sox pitcher Jake Peavy and shortstop Alexei Ramirez are not expected to miss any action while recovering from minor injuries.

Peavy's next start had already been pushed back from Wednesday to Friday before he developed a right eye infection, similar to one he had during Spring Training. The right-hander left the park early on Tuesday for treatment, but was back on Wednesday and remains on target to pitch Chicago's series opener at Detroit on Friday.

"He looks better," manager Robin Ventura said before Wednesday's game. "There's still a little something there, but he wasn't wearing glasses today, which I took as a good sign. They're not very attractive."

Ramirez suffered an injury to the nail on his right pinkie finger while going for a barehanded pickup on Monday. He started on Tuesday and went 0-for-1 with two walks before he was replaced by Ray Olmedo before the bottom of the seventh inning.

Ramirez was in the lineup again on Wednesday, playing shortstop and batting seventh.

"He's fine," Ventura said. "I think it's one of those things, it's going to be time for it to totally heal, but it's a little sore. Last night, just tried to give him the last couple of innings off, just to get it treated."
