PITTSBURGH, Pa. — The Pirates have reinstated RHP A.J. Burnett from the 15-day disabled list and he will start the game tonight in Pittsburgh against St. Louis.
Right-hander Kevin Correia is experiencing discomfort in his left side and will not be starting the game tonight.
Burnett was originally scheduled to make his final rehab start for Double-A Altoona tonight.
The Pirates optioned righty reliever Jared Hughes to Triple-A to make room for Burnett on the 25-man roster.
Nice one, Kevin!
Any guesses on the roster move? A trade of Hanrahan to the Giants? Pedro to Indy?
Hughes sent down
If anyone has a sense of humor in the Pirates’ clubhouse, they should have a bundt cake for him during the pre-game buffet.
