PITTSBURGH (AP) The Pittsburgh Pirates have activated Gerrit Cole from the 15-day disabled list and will start him right away against Atlanta.

Cole came off the DL on Wednesday night to face the Braves.

Cole was put on the disabled list for the second time this season on July 9 because of soreness in his right lat. He also was out for three weeks in June because of right shoulder soreness.

The overall No. 1 pick from the 2011 draft is 7-4 with a 3.78 ERA in 14 starts.

Infielder Brent Morel was optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis to make room for Cole on the 25-man roster.
