Bundy said there is no structural damage in the shoulder, but plans to "get another [MRI] just to be safe in about a week."
The second MRI is precautionary, Bundy said, and will be done in case "the inflammation covered up some other stuff."
Bundy had tendinitis in his shoulder and was expected to undergo an MRI on Wednesday, but after getting his shoulder cleared on Tuesday, Showalter said Bundy wouldn't need an MRI or any other further testing.
Bundy was scratched from his last start Monday for Double-A Bowie. He is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Wednesday.
"I don't think it is anything too serious," Bundy said. "Fingers crossed and we'll see what they say tomorrow."
Bundy, who is working his way back from Tommy John surgery in 2013, will see a doctor Tuesday to determine the extent of the injury, which could be shoulder tendinitis.
Bundy hasn't worked more than three innings in any of his 8 minor league starts, where he is 0-3 with a 3.68 ERA.
Part of the reason behind the potential move involves Bunday's contract, as he's out of options in 2016.
"We talked about that," Showalter said. "No, not mandatory. Obviously, and we all know this, contractually he has to be on our major league club next year, so we've taken a number of people from Double-A. First of all, he's got to do well enough there. No, he doesn't have to pitch at Triple-A for us to feel good about him. It's a process for him, little by little. I think June, middle of June, we'll get an idea of what we've got."
Bundy hasn't worked more than three innings in a start and won't be pushed past five innings.
"I know he's going to get up to five I think at some point," Showalter said. "They've got a target going by a lot of homework and history with Tommy John and the whole nine yards. I hope that we're talking about whether we want to call him up in September."
There aren't any plans to give Bundy a reliever's schedule.
"Not at this point. I don't think that's important at this point," Showalter said. "I wouldn't want to get the cart in front of the horse at this point. Let's get through this next outing, see where we are. It's a process."
Bundy has posted a 4.50 ERA and 20:5 K:BB ratio in 18 innings.
