Anthony Swarzak (ribs) threw a successful bullpen session Wednesday.
It's his first since he fractured two ribs in an off-field incident with his teammates. "It was good," Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said. "He threw the ball over. That was good. He felt great. He said it felt great to be back on the mound again so that was good." Swarzak will begin the year on the DL, but it sounds like he won't miss too much time.
