The Dodgers' Hanley Ramirez was removed from the lineup Saturday due to bruised ribs. Nick Punto will start Game 2 of the NLCS against the Cardinals in his place.

Ramirez was hit by a Joe Kelly in his first at-bat Friday night, which caused the bruising. He dealt with the pain during the game and continued to play, but Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said the shortstop was a "little sore" Saturday.

Ramirez suspects there is a crack in his ribs and will undergo a CT scan on Sunday in Los Angeles, according to CBSSports.com's Scott Miller.

Through five games this postseason, he is is 8-for-18 (.444) with a home run, double, six RBI and five walks.

Craig Sager of TBS reported during the game that Ramirez attempted to take swings in an indoor batting cage but didn't feel well enough to complete the exercise. Ramirez reportedly left Busch Stadium before Game 2 to have X-rays taken of his sore rib cage.
