Hanley Ramirez makes early exit in Dodgers' opener against Brewers

Dodgers' Hanley Ramirez leaves game against Milwaukee Brewers early because of 'right side tightness'

Another day, another injury for Hanley Ramirez.

Ramirez, who has battled shoulder and calf problems this season, added another ailment for the Dodgers medical staff to monitor.

Ramirez couldn’t make it through the first inning of the Dodgers’ series opener against the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday, as he was removed in the bottom of the inning because of what the team described as “right side tightness.”

Ramirez is listed as day to day, according to the Dodgers.

Ramirez drew a two-out walk in the first inning, after which Matt Kemp flied out.

When the Dodgers took the field for the bottom of the inning, Miguel Rojas was at shortstop in place of Ramirez.
