The Pittsburgh Pirates have activated right-handed pitcher Jose Contreras from the bereavement list. To make room, Jared Hughes has been optioned to Triple-A. The move is the exact opposite of the move from a few days ago, when Contreras was placed on the bereavement list due to a death in the family and Hughes came up to take his place.
