CHICAGO -- The Pirates announced this morning they have activated right-handed pitcher A.J. Burnett (strained right calf) from the disabled list and optioned right-handed reliever Ryan Reid to Class AAA Indianapolis.

Burnett will start today's game against the Cubs, which begins at 2:20 p.m. at Wrigley Field.

Burnett (4-6, 3.12) made his last start at Wrigley on June 8 before a sore calf sent him to the disabled list June 14, retroactive to June 8. He did not make any rehabilitation appearances heading into the game today.

Reid, 28, made his major league debut June 3 against Atlanta and has a 1.64 ERA in seven appearances.
