Orioles top prospect Dylan Bundy cleared to begin throwing program
Orioles right-hander Dylan Bundy has been given the OK to start a throwing program after being sidelined with elbow stiffness/discomfort.
Orioles prospect Dylan Bundy has been cleared by Dr. James Andrews to begin a throwing program, the team announced. He has been on the DL all season due to elbow stiffness/discomfort.
Bundy, 20, received a platelet-rich plasma injection in late April after visiting Andrews and was told to rest for six weeks. He was widely regarded as the best pitching prospects in the game coming into the season. Back in February, Baseball America considered him baseball's second-best prospect behind Jurickson Profar.
Since being selected with the fourth overall pick in the 2011 draft, Bundy has pitched to a 2.08 ERA and 0.92 WHIP with 10.3 K/9 and 2.4 BB/9 in 103 2/3 minor league innings while climbing three levels. He made his MLB debut as a 19-year-old last September, throwing 1 2/3 shutout innings across two relief appearances.
Baltimore recently recalled right-hander Kevin Gausman and inserted him into their rotation. He was the fourth overall pick in the 2012 draft and has gone 0-2 with a 7.20 ERA in three big league starts so far. Like Bundy, he came into the year regarded as one baseball's best pitching prospects.
