CINCINNATI -- Los Angeles Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said Hanley Ramirez is available to pinch-hit in Thursday's series finale against the Cincinnati Reds, but he won't be able to play the field for at least one more day. Ramirez is dealing with irritation in the A.C. joint in his right shoulder.

"The fact he walked in today feeling a little bit better with a little more movement is encouraging to us," Mattingly said.

Miguel Rojas got a second straight start at shortstop.

The team contemplated activating catcher A.J. Ellis before Thursday's game, but decided to give him one more day on the disabled list. Ellis likely will be activated before Friday night's game against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Ellis sprained his right ankle landing on Drew Butera's catcher's mask while celebrating Josh Beckett's no-hitter on May 25.
