Dodgers shortstop Hanley Ramirez will not start against the Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday

Hanley Ramirez won’t be in the Dodgers lineup Saturday for the second game of their three-game series against the Milwaukee Brewers.

Ramirez couldn’t take the field in the bottom of the first inning of the series-opening defeat on Friday because of tightness in his right side.

Miguel Rojas, who replaced Ramirez on Friday night, will start in his place Saturday.

Ramirez was scheduled to undergo a MRI exam.

Ramirez said he felt discomfort when hitting in an indoor batting cage at Miller Park before the game.

“It just tightened up on me,” Ramirez said.
