Minnesota Twins: Anthony Swarzak ready, finally, to return to mound - TwinCities.com (http://www.twincities.com/sports/ci_22783412/minnesota-twins-anthony-swarzak-ready-finally-return-mound)

But before you get too excited about his imminent return....

Swarzak threw a light bullpen session that lasted just a few minutes and wasn't even from regulation distance. Afterward, he gave a fist bump to pitching coach Rick Anderson and a thumbs-up to a group of onlookers.


A valuable swingman who threw the fifth-most innings on last year's Twins pitching staff, Swarzak still doesn't know if there will be enough time to break camp with the big-league club. For now, he's just focused on the next challenge before him.

Anyone have a feel for how long it takes to get ramped up if he's still not even throwing from full distance? That doesn't sound too promising to me.

Let's hope that they are being very conservative. But maybe this will give a young guy a chance to establish himself.
