Bundy (8-6) allowed three runs on five hits and four walks while striking out eight across seven innings to earn the win Saturday against the Rays.
Bundy gave up a pair of homers in the third inning to blow a three-run lead, but the Orioles offense came up big in the seventh inning to help him earn his eighth victory of the year. After allowing 10 earned runs in his last 9.1 innings over his previous two starts, his quality start will hopefully end his brief skid and return him to being an strong fantasy option. He'll make his next start Saturday against the Rays.
Bundy will make his next start Saturday as normal, but will move to the back of the rotation afterward in order to give him more rest, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
It appears that manager Buck Showalter sees Bundy's recent struggles as a result of a heavy workload, so he'll push him back a bit so that he can get some extra days of rest. This also will put Bundy in line to start the last game before the All-Star break, which will give him the entire break plus four days to rest prior to pitching in the second half. Hopefully this will help turn things around for the former top prospect, who has a 7.63 ERA in his past three starts.
Bundy (7-6) allowed six runs on six hits and three walks across 4.1 innings in Monday's loss to the Indians. He struck out two.
Bundy fared well until the fourth inning, when he allowed four runs on four hits, a walk and a hit batsman before escaping the jam. He proceeded to allow a leadoff home run to Jason Kipnis in the fifth inning and was removed after issuing a walk to Edwin Encarnacion, who later came around to score. Bundy struggled to find the strike zone at times, walking three for the second straight start, but he was also tagged for five extra-base hits for the first time this season. His poorest effort of the campaign came on the heels of a mediocre effort against the White Sox last week, and he will take a rising 3.72 ERA into Saturday's start against the Rays.
Bundy (7-5) gave up five runs -- four earned -- on six hits and three walks over five innings in Wednesday's win over the White Sox. He whiffed four.
This was one of the worst outings we've seen from Bundy all year; he's only failed to finish six innings twice in his 14 starts, and this represents his second-highest run total of the season. That's a testament to how effective Bundy has been in general, but his peripherals suggest that worse times may be ahead of him -- with a meager 6.5 K/9 and a 4.53 FIP, Bundy looks like he's been lucky to maintain his current 3.29 ERA. Indeed, after putting up a 1.82 mark over his first six starts, his last eight have seen Bundy go 3-4 with a 3.50 ERA and 1.29 WHIP. He's still eminently ownable thanks to his upside and the premium on pitching these days, but don't confuse him with an elite arm.
Bundy (6-5) allowed three runs on five hits and two walks while striking out six over six frames in Friday's loss at Yankee Stadium.
The right-hander served up a solid outing, inducing 14 swing strikes en route to his third quality start in four games. It took 13 starts, but Bundy's ERA pushed above three for the first time all season following Friday's performance. Overall, the second-year starter has been everything the O's (and his fantasy owners) could have wanted in 2017. Bundy's been the best pitcher on the club's staff and has delivered great return on investment across most formats. He'll look to keep it going Wednesday when he takes on the White Sox.
