Bundy (shoulder) remains shut down indefinitely with tendinitis, Roch Kubatko of MASN reports.

Bundy has been on the shelf since late-May with tendinitis, and though there has been no talk of surgery, this extended layoff is certainly not good news for those hoping he would reach the majors this season. Bundy is still one of the top pitching prospects in all of baseball, but this prolonged absence is cause for concern.

Bundy (shoulder) will remain on the shelf for the time being after Friday's MRA revealed "more inflammation than the Orioles had hoped," Brittany Ghiroli of MLB.com reports.

The latest in a seemingly constant stream of arm issues for Bundy doesn't appear to be anything overly serious, but it will keep him on the shelf for now. Manager Buck Showalter told reporters that Bundy will undergo more testing on the shoulder, but it remains to be seen when he will be able to return to game action.

Bundy (shoulder) had a follow-up MRA scan Friday, the Baltimore Sun's Eduardo Encina reports.

He was already scheduled for a check-up after an MRI last weekend, of which the team has not yet released the results. Bundy's dynasty league owners can only wait apprehensively until the team is finally able to give a better prognosis of how serious the shoulder ailment is.

Bundy will have a precautionary MRI on his shoulder, MASN's Roch Kubatko reports.

The hope is that the MRI confirms the previous diagnosis of shoulder tendinitis, but this whole situation is pretty bothersome. Owners will have to wait until the MRI results are released in the coming days to get a firm read on Bundy's situation, but it certainly doesn't sound like he'll be pitching in the big leagues anytime soon. Less than five pitchers in the minor leagues can match Bundy's frontline potential, but with each ensuing elbow/shoulder injury it becomes tougher to bet on him reaching that potential.

Bundy (shoulder soreness) was placed on the disabled list at Double-A Bowie on Thursday, MASN's Steve Melewski reports.

With the transaction retroactive to Tuesday, it's essentially a meaningless procedural move. There was little question Bundy would miss at least one start, but with an MRI showing nothing more than inflammation, he could return within the next few weeks. For now, the Orioles will play it safe, allowing Bundy to rest. There may not be another update until Bundy starts throwing again, and it's unclear when that will happen.

Bundy's MRI on Wednesday just showed shoulder inflammation, which is nothing new, MASN's Roch Kubatko reports.

While shoulder inflammation is nothing to dismiss, it is good that no structural damage was revealed on the second exam of Bundy's shoulder. The prescription for the Orioles' top prospect will be to rest, so he should be considered out indefinitely.

Bundy said he will have an MRI on his shoulder Wednesday, MASN's Steve Melewski reports.

This runs a little contrary to what the O's had been saying earlier Tuesday as they downplayed any need for an MRI and said Bundy would just need rest to get over the tendinitis. He had an exam on the shoulder that revealed no structural damage, but the fact that he will get an MRI Wednesday is still a little concerning. Do not look for Baltimore's top prospect to be on the mound in the big leagues anytime soon.

An exam on Bundy's shoulder went well, and the Orioles are hopeful he's just dealing with mild tendinitis, Roch Kubatko of MASN reports.

The current prescription is simply rest and anti-inflammatories, with the hope Bundy will get back on the mound for Double-A Bowie before long. After spending most of 2014 recovering from Tommy John surgery, Bundy has a 3.68 ERA, 10.2 K/9 and 2.1 BB/9 through 22 innings for Bowie this season. The Orioles don't want to rush their top pitching prospect, but manager Buck Showalter did recently say that Bundy could make it to the majors by the end of the season. Even if that happens, it probably won't be until late in the year, and Bundy might only be used in a relief role. He's yet to face more than 15 batters in an outing for Bowie this season.

Bundy will not make his scheduled start Tuesday at Double-A Bowie due to a sore shoulder, Roch Kubatko of MASN reports.

The highly touted prospect is 0-3 at Double-A this season, but he's posted a respectable 3.68 ERA while failing to allow a home run in eight starts (22.0 innings). At this time, the shoulder issue appears to be minor, but additional details should emerge over the coming days. Earlier this month, Orioles' manager Buck Showalter indicated that it's a possibility that Bundy could make the jump to the majors from Double-A at some point this season.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Wednesday that Bundy could make the jump from Double-A to the major leagues this season, Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun reports.

The O's don't think Bundy is ready yet, but they are leaving the door open for him to bypass the Triple-A level and return to the majors this year if he can sustain success over a period of time with Bowie. So far this season, Bundy has gone 0-3 with a 4.50 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 20:5 K:BB in 18 innings at Double-A. Showalter said there are no plans set for Bundy to start or serve out of the bullpen once he's up.
