Dylan Bundy SP BAL 12 Days

Bundy will be limited to around 100 innings in 2015, MiLB.com's Jake Seiner reports. "He's definitely taken a step forward," Orioles director of player development Brian Graham said of Bundy's performance this spring. "He's better now than he was in August of last year when he last pitched. Certainly, from a velocity standpoint and command and healthy, he's going to continue to get better."

The results were not great for Bundy this spring, but his velocity (he was hitting 95 mph with his fastball) and command more important than the results in exhibition games. Look for Bundy to start the year at Double-A, and potentially finish the year in the Orioles' bullpen. The 100-inning limit, while understandable, certainly limits his fantasy potential in 2015.

Bundy was sent to minor league camp Monday after allowing a run on two hits and two walks in 1.1 innings, MASN Sports reports.

Bundy struggled in four spring appearances, allowing four runs on seven hits and six walks in six innings. He remains slated to begin the season at Double-A. All reports suggest he is healthy and recovered from Tommy John surgery in 2013, but Bundy's performance did not impress. Things could come back to him as he stretches himself out in preparation for the season and if things go well Bundy could be in Baltimore this summer.

Bundy threw a scoreless inning with two walks in Wednesday's spring training game against the Tigers.

This was the first game action for Bundy since August when he was shut down with a strained lat muscle in his shoulder. Most pitchers spend spring training working on secondary stuff and Bundy worked on his changeup, according to MASN Sports. Bundy should stick with the MLB team for most of camp before beginning the season at Double-A.

Bundy (elbow) threw a bullpen session Sunday and has had no restrictions at spring training, MASN Sports reports.

Bundy will be turned loose this year, but he will certainly have an innings limit. He will begin the year at Double-A, but manager Buck Showalter said there is a chance he could get to the Majors this year. Bundy is still a long term play and his return in 2015 will be limited at best at the MLB level.

Bundy will pitch without restrictions in spring training, Roch Kubatko of MASN reports. "He's crossed every physical hurdle, and then some," manager Buck Showalter said.

Bundy, who hit the DL near the end of the season with a lat strain, made just nine total starts last season after undergoing Tommy John surgery in June of 2013. The fourth overall pick in the 2011 draft will ramp up his activity this spring, and should receive a full workload as he looks to make up for the ground he's lost over the past season-and-a-half.

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.
