Minnesota Twins pitcher Anthony Swarzak is expected to miss part of spring training after fracturing two ribs in what general manager Terry Ryan revealed Wednesday was the result of "playing around and wrestling," according to Rhet Bollinger, the Twins beat reporter for MLB.com.

Swarzak, 27, will be out for a month but the incident happened January 25 at TwinsFest, one of the largest team-run fan festivals in professional sports, so he should be back with the team by the end of February. Pitchers and catchers are to report to the Twins' spring training facility in Fort Meyers, Fla next week.

Swarzak recorded a 5.03 ERA in 96 2/3 innings last season and is expected to compete for the Twins' long reliever next season.
