Twins Activate Anthony Swarzak From DL, Option Relief Pitchers Jeff Manship, Luis Perdomo To Triple-A

The Minnesota Twins performed a bit of reshuffling in their bullpen on Wednesday afternoon following a 5-1 loss to the Detroit Tigers, and officially optioned relievers Jeff Manship and Luis Perdomo to Triple-A Rochester. This makes room for 26-year-old Anthony Swarzak's activation from the disabled list, according to MLB.com's Rhett Bollinger:

With one roster spot available to fill, many are projecting the upcoming call-up to be Chris Parmelee, a young infielder who has hit just .204 with two home runs in the big leagues this year. Parmelee struggled to adjust to major league pitchers after a few strong games in the month of April, but remains one of the more promising corner infield prospects in Minnesota's organization.

Swarzak's return should be seen as a boost for manager Ron Gardenhire's bullpen immediately, as the versatile righty served a vital role all season long as both a long reliever and spot-starter before going down with an injury at the end of July. Swarzak owns a 2.42-to-one strikeout-to-walk ratio in 31 appearances this year, and may just factor into the five-man rotation battle if Cole De Vries struggles through another outing.
