Ryan Doumit has been activated; Ronny Paulino has been optioned to Class AAA Indianapolis.
"What I can I say?" said Paulino, who hit .310 as a rookie in 2006 but whose defense tailed off last season. "It's an opportunity for me to go there and play every day, work on what they want me to work on and try to come back here as soon as possible."
It's nice to see that Pirates management is backing up their statements on accountability.
