GLENDALE, Ariz. -- White Sox shortstop Alexei Ramirez left Wednesday's game against the Indians with a right shoulder contusion after being hit by a Daisuke Matsuzaka pitch in the second inning. The club listed him as day to day.

"X-rays were fine, nothing's broken, it's just the muscle," White Sox manager Robin Ventura said. "He'll be fine. You just worry about it at the end, getting guys out of here healthy."

In 56 at-bats this spring, the 31-year-old had 15 hits, including four doubles. The White Sox will play two exhibition games against the Brewers in Milwaukee this weekend before hosting the Royals on Monday to open the season.

"We'll see how he feels," said Ventura when asked if Ramirez will play in Milwaukee. "I don't worry about at-bats with him. It's more of how he's feeling."
