Dylan Bundy SP BAL 4 Months

Bundy (elbow) strained a lat muscle while running in the outfield and will head to 7-day DL at High-A Frederick, MASNsports.com's Steve Melewski reports.

Orioles GM Dan Duquette said that while the strain shouldn't take long to recover from, Bundy might not pitch again this season with the minor league campaign winding down in two weeks. While it's good news that Bundy didn't suffer any sort of setback with his elbow, he could desperately use some innings after being limited to nine starts over in the minors over the past two seasons. He wasn't especially effective in his six turns with Frederick while rehabbing from Tommy John surgery, posting a 4.78 ERA and 15:13 K:BB ratio over 26.1 innings.

Bundy (elbow) has a 4.78 ERA and 15:13 K:BB ratio through 26.1 innings in six rehab starts for High-A Frederick.

Not exactly the numbers the O's were hoping for from Bundy, who is still making his way back from Tommy John surgery. The big club is surging without him, though, so while Baltimore initially wanted to have him back for the stretch run, they may not end up rushing him back after all.

Orioles prospect RHP Dylan Bundy allowed two runs on five hits in 4 1/3 innings on Tuesday for High-A Frederick, walking five batters while recording only one strikeout.

Bundy, who continues to work his way back from 2013 Tommy John surgery, has struggled over his five rehab outings at Frederick, with a 5.73 ERA and 8-13 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 22 innings. He still has the potential to contribute in the major leagues before the end of the season, but first the 21-year-old right-hander will need to have success against hitters at higher minor league levels.

Orioles right-handed pitching prospect Dylan Bundy allowed six hits, two walks, and six runs over 4 2/3 innings while striking out one batter for High-A Frederick on Wednesday.

With the news that Bundy's pitch count will be limited for the rest of the season, it appears likely that he will not have much of an impact at the major league level. The Orioles are treading lightly with Bundy, giving him copious time to build arm strength and work on his command and pitches before he is brought back up to the major leagues. Bundy is part of Baltimore's three-headed monster of young pitchers, as he, Kevin Gausman, and Hunter Harvey could form three-fifths of the best rotation in the majors for years to come.

Dylan Bundy (elbow) will be limited to 75 pitches in each of his starts for the remainder of the 2014 season.

The Orioles are being extra cautious with their 21-year-old pitching prospect, who is on his way back from Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery. Bundy could still pitch in the majors this season, but the limit obviously affects his potential value in standard fantasy leagues. He's scheduled to make his next rehab start Thursday at High-A Frederick.

Dylan Bundy (elbow) fired five scoreless innings in his third minor league rehab start with Low-A Aberdeen on Friday.

The impressive young right-hander who is working his way back from Tommy John surgery punched out seven on the night while walking two. His fastball sat in the 90 to 94 mph range throughout the effort, and Bundy reported no soreness after the game. The next step in his recovery process is likely to come at Single-A Frederick.

Dylan Bundy (elbow) will make his next minor league rehab start on Friday with Low-A Aberdeen.

Bundy, who is making his way back from Tommy John surgery, has allowed one run in 10 innings with a 15/1 K/BB ratio over his first two rehab starts. After Friday's outing, he'll likely move up to Class A Delmarva or High-A Frederick. The 21-year-old could be an option for the Orioles right after the All-Star break and is worth stashing right now in deeper mixed leagues.

Dylan Bundy (elbow) tossed five scoreless innings Saturday in a rehab start at Low-A Aberdeen.

It was his second official rehab outing and he looked terrific, striking out nine batters while surrendering just two hits and a walk. Bundy should be allowed to move to High-A Frederick by next week and could be an option for the Orioles' starting rotation after the All-Star break. He's worth stashing right now in deeper mixed leagues.

Dylan Bundy (elbow) pitched well in his first minor league rehab start with Class-A Aberdeen on Sunday, allowing one run on five hits over his five innings of work.

Bundy punched out six on the afternoon without allowing a walk, throwing 65 total pitches. The 21-year-old will surely make several starts in the minor leagues before becoming an option for the Orioles, but could actually make an impact in fantasy leagues in the second half of the season.
