The roster moves continued for the Minnesota Twins on Sunday morning, as right-hander Anthony Swarzak was activated from the 15-day disabled list. Swarzak missed the start of the season after fracturing his ribs in an off-the-field incident in late January. Swarzak, 27, has spent three seasons in the majors with Minnesota and pitched in a career-high 44 games last season, including five games as a spot starter. He had a 5.03 ERA with 62 strikeouts and 31 walks in 96-23 innings. Because of his rib injury, Swarzak did not appear in a Grapefruit League game this spring. He'll be used out of the bullpen with the Twins. Additionally, left-hander Tyler Robertson was optioned to Triple-A Rochester following Saturday's win in Baltimore. The 25-year-old lefthander pitched in two games so far this season and allowed just one run but gave up a grand slam in relief Friday on the first pitch to Chris Davis in the Twins' 9-5 loss. Robertson entered the game with the bases loaded in the bottom of the eighth inning and the score tied. This spring, Robertson had a 7.82 ERA after allowing 11 runs in 12-23 innings (11 games). He made his major league debut last season with the Twins and pitched in 40 games with a 5.40 ERA out of the bullpen. The Twins face Baltimore on Sunday with a chance to win their second straight series to begin the season. Left-hander Pedro Hernandez, who was officially recalled from Triple-A Rochester on Sunday morning to replace the injured Cole De Vries (forearm), is making his first start as a Twin and just his second major league start of his career.
