Correia Hurt, Burnett activated.

I’m posting this from my phone so please forgive the lack of links. The Pirates have announced that tonight’s starting pitcher, Kevin Correia, has been scratched due to discomfort in his left side. A left oblique injury forced Correia to miss the end of last season.

Starting in his place will be A.J. Burnett, who was supposed to make his final rehab start tonight in Altoona. A corresponding roster move will be announced before the start of the game.

Update 4/22, 10:58: Jared Hughes was optioned to AAA to make room for Burnett. Added links.
