Pirates | Jose Contreras released

The Pittsburgh Pirates have released RP Jose Contreras in order to clear a spot on the 40-man roster for SP Charlie Morton (elbow), who is being activated from the disabled list in order to start on Thursday, June 13.

Fantasy Tip: The Pirates placed A.J. Burnett on the DL as well. Morton may get an additional start out of this, depending on what happens with other Bucs starters on the mend, but he's not a recommended fantasy option yet.
