ANTHONY SWARZAK RUMORS

Twins' Swarzak hit around by Tigers in spot start

MINNEAPOLIS -- Anthony Swarzak has gotten used to making spot starts. He's now made a pair of starts this season and did the same thing five times in 2012 as a reliever. The Twins right-hander has aspirations of once again pitching in a starting role, something he did to start his big league career. Outings like Monday against Detroit won't exactly help his cause, though. In his...

Twins Injury Update: Anthony Swarzak could hit DL with ankle sprain

The Minnesota Twins defeated the Houston Astros on Wednesday by the score of 3-1. The win improved the last-place Twins to 54-65 on the season. The Twins, who have scored the 11th most runs in the Major Leagues, have been hindered all season by the pitching staff which is near the bottom of the league in ERA. One pitcher who may help the situation is Ricky Nolasco, who is coming...

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...

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, his outing...

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

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...
