The Dodgers have placed right-hander Josh Beckett on the 15-day disabled list with both a hip impingement and a groin strain, the team announced. The move cleared a roster spot for the recently acquired Roberto Hernandez.

Beckett, 34, has been dealing with the hip problem for a while and has been trying to pitch through it. The groin strain could be related. Beckett will be shut down completely for two weeks before resuming baseball activites. Manager Don Mattingly said he expects Becket to pitch again this year.
