Troy McClure warned us, but did we listen? We did not. After TwinsFest at Target Field two weeks ago, Minnesota reliever Anthony Swarzak got into a good-natured tussle.

"When he was up here for TwinsFest, he was messing around with a couple guys and cracked a couple ribs, so he'll be out a month," Ryan said. "He was wrestling around. It was some horseplay. He was out with a couple friends and the team and cracked a couple ribs fooling around. It wasn't a fight or anything. It was just bad judgment wrestling around."

This goes down as a "non-baseball-related injury," but there's nothing more baseball than a player hurting himself doing something foolish or mundane. Swarzak will be out about a month, rough timing considering pitchers and catchers report next week.
