Bundy is recovering from June Tommy John surgery. He could end up joining the team in the second half for a potential playoff push depending on how his recovery goes over the next few months.
"I'm doing great. I'm throwing every other day now," Bundy said Tuesday. "Literally, that's exactly what it sounds like. One day I throw and the next day I don't do much of anything except condition and work out. I do all lower body stuff and give my entire upper body a rest."
Bundy is recovering from June Tommy John surgery and will refrain from rushing back before his elbow is fully healed.
"I'm not there yet," Bundy said. "I don't want to rush it, not at all. Psychologically, I've handled it pretty well. I've been down here recovering all along. I've had a bunch of the Orioles help me out and stuff. I can talk to them, tell them every day how I'm feeling. Working out with them has been good."
Bundy is unsure of when he'll be ready to pitch off a mound.
Bundy plans to throw from 150 feet Sunday, but will add 20 additional throws from 90 feet at the end of his session. He said that he should be throwing from 180 feet sometime in the next 10 days. Bundy estimated that he's throwing about 75 percent right now. He wants to throw harder, but doctors have not cleared him for that much work yet.
Once Bundy is capable of throwing from 180 feet, the team will likely move him to a mound. That could take time, though, as the team wants to be sure his arm responds to the increased distance. While he's still a few weeks away from pitching competitvely, it's encouraging that he's been able to get this far without any setbacks.
A few weeks ago, manager Buck Showalter said he envisions have Bundy in the majors around June.
Bundy was able to throw from 150 feet again Friday. He's attempting to come back from Tommy John surgery, and has been able to increase his throwing distance in recent weeks. He's still not expected to be back until May or June, but it's a good sign he hasn't dealt with any setbacks yet.
Bundy is working to get back after Tommy John surgery. He'll have to throw from 180 feet before the team allows him to throw off a mound. Coming into camp, Bundy had thrown from 120 feet twice, so he's clearly looking to ramp things up early. He's expected to return to the majors around June.
