The Pirates placed relief pitcher Jose Contreras on the bereavement list due to a death in his family before Friday's game and recalled pitcher Jared Hughes from Class AAA Indianapolis.

Contreras must spend at least three days on the bereavement list and can stay there as long as seven days.

Hughes allowed seven runs in 13 2/3 innings before the Pirates optioned him to Indianapolis in early May.
