The Pittsburgh Pirates have promoted right-handed pitcher Jose Contreras to Indianapolis, per an Altoona press release. Contreras was previously with Altoona, working his way back from an elbow injury last year. He pitched back to back games last week on the 20th and 21st in Altoona, and will now go to Indianapolis for the next step.
The Pirates also transferred infielder Oscar Tejeda from Indianapolis to Altoona.
