Swarzak Throws Two Innings in Simulated Game, Scheduled to Pitch Saturday

Anthony Swarzak pitched two innings in a simulated game today and came away from the appearance feeling great, as Anthony Dicomo of MLB.com reports.

Tim Britton of The Athletic further reports that Swarzak is now scheduled to pitch his first game since February 27th on Saturday.

The right-hander had made only two appearances before going down with a strained left calf in which he allowed two runs (one earned) in 1.2 innings.

The 32-year old was a solid reliever last season with the Chicago White Sox and Milwaukee Brewers, logging a 2.33 ERA, 2.74 FIP and 1.034 WHIP over 77.1 innings pitched.

Swarzak signed a two-year, $14 million contract with the Mets in December.
