Jared Hughes Hopes To Bolster Pittsburgh Pirates' Struggling Bullpen

The Pirates gave their bullpen a boost recently by recalling right-hander Jared Hughes from his rehab assignment and optioning right-hander Rob Scahill to Class AAA Indianapolis.

He had a 2.12 ERA in 139 appearances the past two seasons. Hughes strained his lat muscle midway through spring training and started the season on the 15-day disabled list. Since his return in five games Hughes has posted a 3.86 ERA. PiratesDugout.coms George Von Benko spoke with Hughes recently.
