Twins reliever Anthony Swarzak is expected to miss a month after fracturing two ribs late last month, the team announced Wednesday.

The team did not provide any details of how Swarzak suffered the injury at the time of the announcement.

General manager Terry Ryan later said that Swarzak injured himself while in Minnesota for TwinsFest, and that Swarzak was playing around and wrestling, according to Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com.

Twins’ pitchers and catchers are scheduled to report next Wednesday.
