Ramirez worked out on the warning track at

“He obviously looked really good,” Mattingly said. “Everything was easy.”

Ramirez will bat second for the Dodgers.

Yasiel Puig

, who has no hits in his last 19 at-bats, was dropped to the fifth spot.

“I want to get Hanley the extra at-bat,” Mattingly said.

Before Ramirez was removed from the game Friday night, he was three for four with a home run and a double.

“I thought he looked good,” Mattingly said. “I think it’s the first time we’ve seen him with better timing since he’s been back. To me, it looks like he’s swinging better.”

San Diego Padres

. Third baseman

Juan Uribe

could also return from the disabled list.
