Pirates RHP Cumpton up from minors, starts vs Reds

PITTSBURGH (AP) The Pittsburgh Pirates have promoted right-hander Brandon Cumpton from the minors to start against the Cincinnati Reds.

The Pirates recalled Cumpton from Triple-A Indianapolis to pitch Thursday. Right-handed reliever Jared Hughes was optioned to Indianapolis.

Cumpton was 2-0 with a 1.42 ERA in three starts in Triple-A this season. The Pirates needed a starting pitcher after left-hander Wandy Rodriguez was put on the disabled list Monday because of inflammation in his left knee.
