Hanley Ramirez out of Dodgers starting lineup against Brewers

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.
