With the minor-league season set to end in two weeks, there may not be time for
"I don't know what's in store for me the next two or three weeks. The minor league season ends on Sept. 1," Bunday said. "We'll see what happens. If I go home, I'll go back to Oklahoma and enjoy the off-season. Hunt some and hang with my friends and my dad and rest for about 2 1/2 months and start throwing again."
Bundy did say his elbow still feels good following his recovery from Tommy John surgery. Bundy started nine games between two Class A stops, posting a 3.27 ERA with 37 strikeouts and 16 walks in 41 1/3 innings of work.
Bundy strained his latissimus muscle while running in the outfield. It's unclear if Bundy will be able to return to the mound before the end of the season. Bundy opened the year attempting to recover from Tommy John surgery.
Bundy has struggled lately, but insists he's 100 percent healthy. "So far, there are no problems," Bundy said. "No pain, no soreness. As far as health-wise, I'm perfectly healthy." He admitted facing better competition was part of the reason for his struggles, but also said he's making mistakes with his pitches. "I'm leaving my fastball up and I've got to bury pitches when I need to and I'm not doing that."
Bundy's next start is slated for Tuesday. Over his last three starts, Bundy has a 9.26 ERA in 11 2/3 innings.
Bundy has made three starts with Class A Frederick, none of which have produced strong results. Over 11 2/3 innings at the level, he's posted a 9.26 ERA. Bundy is working his way back from Tommy John surgery. It was assumed he would return to the majors at some point this season, but that could change if he continues to struggle during his rehab outings.
Bundy had Tommy John surgery a little more than a year ago, and his progress is being closely monitored by the team. He could still be a factor for the Orioles in the second half, but since he isn't expected to top 75 pitches in any of his starts, he'd likely be limited to five-to-six innings in most of his outings.
