Analysis: The 29-year-old free agent spent his third consecutive season with the Twins. His 237.1 relief innings are the second most in the majors since 2012. Swarzak had been with the Twins his entire professional career after his second-round selection in the 2004 draft.

Analysis: Swarzak has made 29 career starts dating back to 2009, but this was his first since Oct. 2, 2012. Such a surprise assignment can be a challenge for a pitcher, less than 14 hours after finding out, but that can also work against an opponent that hasn't fully prepared to face him. Four of Swarzazk's five innings were perfect. "I felt like I might've had a little bit more in the tank," Swarzak said.

Gibson, 8-8 with a 4.19 ERA, will be replaced by Swarzak.
Analysis: Swarzak is 1-0 with 4.34 in 30 relief appearances this season. The right-hander has 28 career starts but hasn't started a game since 2012.
