DETROIT -- The Los Angeles Dodgers have put pitcher Josh Beckett on the 15-day disabled list with a left hip impingement.

The right-hander pitched five scoreless innings in a win at Colorado on Sunday, but was removed after just 82 pitches. Beckett began the season on the DL with a right thumb contusion, but has made each of his 17 starts since then, going 6-5 with a 2.26 ERA.

The team on Tuesday recalled right-handed reliever Pedro Baez from Triple-A Albuquerque.

Baez was previously recalled for a game on May 5 at Washington, and allowed two runs on two hits in one inning of relief in his major league debut. The converted infielder opened the year at Double-A Chattanooga and went 2-1 with six saves and a 2.79 ERA in 17 games to earn a May 25 promotion to Albuquerque.

The 26-year-old pitcher last worked on Saturday, allowing three runs on two hits in one inning against Las Vegas. Baez has posted a 4.50 ERA in 17 appearances with the Isotopes.
