"From my understanding, it is not going to be an issue," Sox general manager Kenny Williams said. "He's going to make an adjustment and he will conform to how we like to have our players represented out there."
The White Sox are picking up the remaining $3.825 million of Ramirez's contract this season, a payment that won't be painful if it comes after a playoff appearance.
Even without Ramirez, the White Sox have been hitting. They have 10 or more hits 13 times in the past 16 games, and they wasted no time putting Indians starter Mitch Talbot in a 5-0 hole after two innings.
Rios hit his 19th homer in the sixth to give the White Sox a 6-3 lead.
NOTES: It was Paul Konerko's 1,744th game with Chicago, tying him with Guillen for fifth on the team's list. ... White Sox LHP Chris Sale, the team's first-round draft pick in June, struck out the side in the seventh. ... Nix was ejected in the seventh for arguing a called third strike. ... Guillen gushed when asked about Omar Vizquel's impact on the White Sox. "You want to talk about a savior. It's been my pleasure to manage that that kid," the 46-year-old Guillen said. "I never thought when we got him he would be this good for us." ... In addition to adding Ramirez, the White Sox moved RHP Jake Peavy to the 60-day disabled list. Peavy had surgery on a right side muscle in July and is out for the season.
