The Los Angeles Dodgers placed pitcher Josh Beckett on the 15-day disabled list with a left hip impingement and recalled reliever Pedro Baez from Triple-A Albuquerque on Tuesday.

Beckett left Sunday's win in Colorado after five scoreless innings and 82 pitches.

After starting the season on the DL with a thumb bruise, Beckett made 17 straight starts and was 6-5 with a 2.26 ERA, 32 walks and 95 strikeouts in 103 2/3 innings. He will be eligible to come off the disabled list soon after the All-Star break and could miss only one to two starts.

The 26-year-old Baez pitched one game for the Dodgers on May 5 at Washington, giving up two runs and two hits in one inning of relief in his major league debut.

In 17 appearances for Albuquerque, Baez has a 4.50 ERA. He gave up three runs and two hits in one inning against Las Vegas in his latest outing last Saturday.

Baez, formerly an infielder, started the season with Double-A Chattanooga and was 2-1 with six saves and a 2.79 ERA in 17 games.
