Seattle, WA – The Minnesota Twins reinstated pitcher Anthony Swarzak from the 15-day disabled list and selected the contract of outfielder Matt Carson from Triple-A Rochester on Friday.
Swarzak was 2-4 with a 4.43 earned run average in 31 games (four starts) prior to landing on the DL in late July with a mild right rotator cuff strain.
Carson hit .277 with 14 home runs, 23 doubles and 49 RBI in 110 games for the Red Wings this season. He hasn't played in the majors since a 36-game stint with the Oakland Athletics in 2010.
To make room for Carson on the 40-man roster, the Twins outrighted Rene Tosoni. The outfielder is currently playing for Double-A New Britain.
