BEREA, Ohio -- The Browns say offensive guard Jason Pinkston has not been medically cleared to practice. Josh Anderson Jersey . The team and Pinkstons agents released a joint statement Monday saying the four-year veteran has been in communication with the Browns. The team says it will respect Pinkstons privacy and not provide further details "at this time." Pinkston started 16 games as a rookie in 2011. The next year he was sidelined with blood clots in his lungs, threatening his career. The fifth-round draft pick from Pittsburgh played only three games last season because of an ankle injury. On Sunday, first-year coach Mike Pettine said there was a "possibility" Pinkston will return to the team. Pinkston said on Twitter he has not considered retiring. David Savard Jersey . Hoffman, the former star closer, will evaluate and help co-ordinate all pitchers at Double-A, Triple-A and the big league team. Byrnes says Hoffman "will be a key part of finishing the development of our younger pitchers. Zach Werenski Jersey . -- At the beginning of training camp, Andrew Bogut set a goal to play all 82 regular-season games and regain his place among the NBAs best centres.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. He was left off the National League roster for the All-Star game. Manager Don Mattingly said a baserunning mishap Sunday may have led to Becketts latest problem. "We were hoping to get him to the (All-Star) break to get him a little extra time," Mattingly said. "I think that little run between short and third the other day -- it looked like he stopped and started, and then the slide looked a little funny. I cant tell you exactly what sent him over the edge, but obviously that was a little bit tricky." The team on Tuesday recalled right-handed reliever Pedro Baez from Triple-A Albuquerque. It wasnt immediately clear who will start in Becketts place Saturday against the San Diego Padres. Mattingly said he wasnt sure how quickly Beckett would be back after his DL stint. &"I dont really think we know," he said. Brandon Dubinsky Jersey. "I dont know if hell need a few extra days past the DL time." Baez was previously recalled for a game on May 5 at Washington, and allowed two runs and 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 and two hits in one inning against Las Vegas. Baez has a 4.50 ERA in 17 appearances with the Isotopes. "Hes the guy thats been throwing the best," Mattingly said. "Thats the guy they felt like has been throwing the ball good. Thats what we always try to do. Whoevers throwing the best is the guy that comes." Beckett was limited to only eight starts last year. He had a rib removed last July in a surgery to alleviate a nerve condition that was affecting his right arm. Neck problems and numbness in his right hand had troubled Beckett for the past few years. It got to the point where he learned how to drive with only his left hand.
