MILWAUKEE -- The Pirates today activated outfielder Chris Duffy from the 60-day disabled list and assigned him to Double-A Altoona.

To clear space for Duffy on the 40-man roster, right-hander Bryan Bullington was designated for assignment.

Bullington, 27, was the No. 1 overall draft pick in 2002, but never lived up to that billing. He pitched in six games with the Pirates over the past three seasons, going 0-3 with a 5.89 ERA. He was called up earlier this season to provide bullpen depth, but was never used in a game.

The Pirates have 10 days to either trade, release or send Bullington outright to the minors.

Duffy, 28, has not played for the Pirates since June 27, 2007, when he injured his left ankle during a game against Florida. In August, he had surgery on his left shoulder.
