MILWAUKEE — Hanley Ramirez is not in the lineup one day after pain in his right side forced him to leave the Dodgers’ game against the Brewers. Ramirez walked in his only plate appearance Friday in the Dodgers’ 9-3 loss.

Ramirez was scheduled to undergo an MRI exam today. The results haven’t been made available yet. Ramirez hasn’t been placed on the disabled list this season.

Update (2:45 p.m.): Ramirez was scheduled to undergo the MRI around 2 p.m. PST, Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said, for an injury involving his oblique muscle. “They’re pretty serious as far as I’m concerned,” Mattingly said, “because they don’t allow you to do anything. That’s the area. The MRI will give us a good indication of severity, swelling, bleeding or any of that stuff.”

Miguel Rojas is starting at shortstop in Ramirez’s place. The full lineup:

Dee Gordon 2B
Yasiel Puig CF
Adrian Gonzalez 1B
Matt Kemp RF
Carl Crawford LF
Juan Uribe 3B
A.J. Ellis C
Miguel Rojas SS
Zack Greinke P
