Pirates activate Cruz from disabled list
Share with others:
The Pirates activated right-hander Juan Cruz from the 15-day disabled list before Sunday's game and optioned right-hander Jared Hughes to Class AAA Indianapolis.
Cruz was on the DL because of right shoulder inflammation.
Hughes had allowed six runs in his previous six innings of work spread over a four-game span. Manager Clint Hurdle said the move was related to activating Cruz rather than Hughes' performance and that it is possible Hughes could return to the Pirates soon.
