ANTHONY SWARZAK RUMORS

Indians dropped by Twins fill-in starter Anthony Swarzak

This trippy combo picture froze on my screen as I was looking at pics from yesterday’s game. (I apologize for the lateness of this recap. I’m filling in for TD today.) I had to look up Anthony Swarzak’s name three times. Apparently Carlos Santana did too, according to Alex Smith of MLB.com. His game story says that Carlos Santana had no idea who was pitching yesterday 90 minutes...

Swarzak strong in spot start, Twins top Cleveland

Anthony Swarzak has been begging for a start for the nearly two years since his last one. So much so, that it became a running joke in the clubhouse and a source of friendly teammate teasing. The Twins righthander probably wasn’t expecting to have the last laugh in the form of a notice that he was starting a little more than 12 hours before Wednesday’s game. But Swarzak stepped...

In spot start, Swarzak spins a beauty for Twins

MINNEAPOLIS -- Twins right-hander Anthony Swarzak has aspirations of one day returning to the starting rotation. For one day, at least, he had that chance. Swarzak started Wednesday's game against Cleveland as a spot starter when Minnesota's Kyle Gibson was scratched with lower back stiffness. Though Swarzak found out about his start less than 24 hours before it happened...

Spot-Starter Swarzek Shuts Down Tribe; Twins 3, Indians 1

Until Wednesday afternoon Anthony Swarzak had been used exclusive as a reliever by the Minnesota Twins. When scheduled starter Kyle Gibson came down with a sore back on Tuesday, the Twins needed a spot starter on the fly and turned to Swarzak. Hoping to get perhaps a few innings of decent work out of the 28-year-old right-hander, who had made 31 relief appearances this season, Minnesota...

Indians fail to figure out fill-in starter, drop series to Twins

Danny Santana scored after two of his three hits for the Twins, and five relievers totaled six strikeouts over four scoreless innings.

Twins agree to contract with RHP Swarzak

The Minnesota Twins and right-hander Anthony Swarzak have agreed to a $935,000, one-year contract, avoiding arbitration. Swarzak went 3-2 with a 2.91 ERA in 48 games for the Twins last season. He made all of those appearances out of the bullpen for the first time in his four-year career. In years past, Swarzak was often used as a spot starter when the rotation faltered or someone...

Twins: Swarzak has cracked ribs -- from wrestling

Swarzak on Sasquatch: 'I believe they're real'

MINNEAPOLIS What began as a simple curiosity about Sasquatch after watching a few television shows has turned into a bit of an obsession for Twins reliever Anthony Swarzak or so say his teammates. Swarzak downplays his passion and interest in Sasquatch, otherwise known as Bigfoot. But ask those in Minnesota's clubhouse and they'll tell you it's more than just a passing...

Twins, Swarzak seek repeat of Sunday's outing

Since opening two years ago, Target Field has been a house of misery for the Texas Rangers. While they appear to have the right man taking the mound to pick up a rare win there, their offense may be the bigger concern in Minnesota. Scheduled starter Matt Harrison tries to lead the Rangers to their second victory at Target Field in Friday night's series opener against the Twins...
