Dodgers recall Darwin Barney from Triple-A; Hanley Ramirez goes on DL.

MILWAUKEE–Darwin Barney’s flight landed here at 5 a.m. Sunday. A new uniform was waiting for him at Miller Park with number 30 on his back. A new position was waiting for him, too.

Barney, a second baseman for most of his professional life, might need to help the Dodgers more at shortstop — one of two positions (along with third base) he was asked to learn at Triple-A Albuquerque. Hanley Ramirez strained his right oblique muscle in the batting cage Friday and was placed on the 15-day disabled list for the first time this season, retroactive to Saturday.

Ramirez underwent an MRI scan Sautrday. Results have not been made available to the media.

Barney said he’s comfortable playing shortstop. He played three innings Saturday night in Las Vegas with Albuquerque, then flew out at 11:30 pm.
