Even if you get the major reinforcement, their corps commander cannot be used because there is no nearby army. Their uncommanded force is commanded by leaders with zero skills, literally. Despite command of the sea, the game gives you no transports, so you can't leave Stralsund even if you want to. Marching the Russian or Reichsarmee three star up there is possible, I suppose, although that leaves the Russians (and Empire forces) without their own three star.
In the game I am in, the Prussians marched an army twice the size of the Swedes up to Stralsund and have earned about 20 NM beating them down (the remnants of the Swedes are now besieged), while training up Prince Henry some more.
The only thing I can think of doing different is not getting the major reinforcement, letting the Prussians siege (and destroy) the starting Swedish force, then wait for the Prussians to leave and, at some time when perhaps the Russian three-star is close enough to give command, time the big reinforcement for then. That, or getting the aforementioned three-star from the Empire or Russia up there early. But that would see to just delay the inevitable, since the Swedes are so isolated, so terrible and unable to sail away by sea.

However, if Prussia commits to this extermination, then Russia and Hanover have an opening, also.
