Bundy and the Angels reached a one-year, $8.325 million deal Friday, avoiding arbitration.
Bundy was able to reach an agreement with the Angels on Friday without an arbiter. The 28-year-old should enter the 2021 season as one of the team's top starting options after posting a 3.29 ERA and 1.04 WHIP with 72 strikeouts over 65.2 innings across 11 starts last season.
Bundy was scratched from Saturday's start against the Dodgers with a cut on his finger, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.
The 27-year-old apparently would have pitched were the Angels still in playoff contention, but the team will play it safe and hold him out now that it's been eliminated. It brings an early end to Bundy's rebound season, and he finishes 2020 with a 3.29 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 72:17 K:BB over 65.2 innings (11 starts)
Bundy (6-3) picked up the win Monday against the Rangers, allowing three runs on five hits and two walks while striking out three over five innings.
Bundy lasted just 2.2 frames in his outing prior to Monday, surrendering six runs (five earned) on six hits and two walks, but he responded by securing the victory over Texas. He gave up a solo homer in the first, followed by an RBI double in the second and an RBI single in the third, however, the Angels put up eight runs on the day, plenty of scoring to bring home the win. The 27-year-old owns a 3.29 ERA and 1.04 WHIP to go along with 72 punchouts across 65.2 innings this season.
Bundy (5-3) was tagged with the loss Wednesday against the Diamondbacks. He gave up six runs (five earned) on six hits and two walks while fanning two across 2.2 innings.
This was Bundy's shortest and worst outing of the entire season by a wide margin -- he was coming off back-to-back starts in which he hurled at least seven innings while allowing two runs each time. Bundy also snapped a streak of four outings allowing two or fewer earned runs with this woeful performance, and he will attempt to turn things around in his next scheduled Sept. 21 start at home against the Rangers.
Bundy (5-2) picked up the win Thursday against the Rangers, allowing two runs on four hits and one walk across 7.1 innings. He struck out 12.
Bundy allowed a run in the first, but did not allow Texas to score again until the eighth. The right-hander's 12 strikeouts set a season high. Bundy has allowed two earned runs or fewer in each of his last four outings and will take a strong 2.48 ERA into his start against Arizona on Wednesday.
Bundy did not factor into the decision during Friday's win against Houston, allowing two runs on six hits and a walk while striking out eight across seven innings.
Facing Houston for the first time this season, Bundy held the Astros scoreless until the fourth inning, when he gave up a leadoff walk and a pair of doubles that resulted in two runs. The 27-year-old threw 66 of 100 pitches for strikes and left the game with the lead, though Houston tied things up in the ninth, preventing him from earning the win. Bundy now sports a 2.49 ERA and 0.95 WHIP on the season. He'll take the mound next Thursday at Texas.
Bundy (4-2) earned the win Saturday against the Mariners. He allowed one run on four hits and three walks while fanning three across 5.1 innings.
Bundy received strong support from the offense as the Angels mustered six runs in the first five innings before adding 10 more against Seattle's bullpen. The right-hander now has a 2.32 ERA in five starts this month and has allowed more than two earned runs just once in that stretch.
Bundy allowed four runs (two earned) on seven hits and one walk while striking out six across 5.2 innings Sunday against the Athletics. He did not factor into the decision.
Bundy ran into trouble in the first inning after the leadoff hitter reached base on an error. After what should have been the third out of the inning, he surrendered a double and single to allow two runs to cross the plate. He then pitched scoreless ball until the sixth frame, when he got two outs prior to another trio of hits that scored one and left an inherited runner on base -- who eventually crossed the plate. Overall, it was a solid outing for Bundy, who kept the ball in the yard after allowing a pair of home runs in his previous start. Bundy now has a 2.58 ERA with 44 strikeouts across 38.1 innings for the season. He's in line to draw his next start Friday against Seattle.
Bundy (3-2) allowed four earned runs on four hits and four walks while striking out three across four innings to take the loss Tuesday against the Giants.
Bundy surrendered a home run in each of the first two innings, accounting for three of his four earned runs. He also struggled to find the strike zone, beginning only 10 of the 20 batters he faced with a strike and throwing 41 of his 73 pitches in the strike zone. Bundy has been excellent to start the campaign, as even with the poor outing he has a 2.48 ERA with a 38:7 K:BB across 32.2 innings. He'll look to bounce back in his next start, currently projected to come Monday at Houston.
Bundy will switch turns in the rotation with Griffin Canning, pushing Bundy's next start to Tuesday against the Giants, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Bundy has shouldered a heavy workload this season, averaging over seven innings per start, so the Angels will push him back in order to give him extra rest. The right-hander last pitched Aug. 11, thus he will have enjoyed a full week off when he toes the mound against San Francisco on Tuesday afternoon. Bundy has been among baseball's best pitchers so far this season, registering a 1.57 ERA, 0.63 WHIP and 35:3 K:BB over 28.2 innings.
Bundy (3-1) earned the win against Oakland on Tuesday, pitching seven scoreless innings and allowing four hits and one walk while striking out 10.
Bundy's outstanding start to the season continued Tuesday with his first scoreless outing as an Angel. The right-hander pitched a complete game his last time out, and he was equally impressive against Oakland, limiting the Athletics to six baserunners while tying his season high with 10 punchouts. Bundy's recent mastery over hitters is evident in his swinging-strike totals -- 16 in his last outing and 17 on Tuesday -- and he has yet to give up more than four hits in an appearance this season. The 27-year-old will carry a sparkling 1.57 ERA and 0.63 WHIP into his next start, which is scheduled to come at home against San Francisco on Monday.
Bundy (2-1) earned the win against Seattle on Thursday, pitching nine innings and allowing one run on four hits while striking out 10. He did not walk a batter.
Bundy single-handedly provided a breather for the Angels' struggling bullpen, tossing his third career complete game and first since 2018. The right-hander gave up a fourth-inning home run to Dan Vogelbach but otherwise faced little resistance from the Mariners' offense, yielding only five baserunners while striking out 10. Bundy tossed 76 of 107 pitches for strikes in the contest and induced an impressive 16 swinging strikes over his nine frames. The 27-year-old has been a revelation for Los Angeles at the start of the campaign, allowing only five earned runs over 21.2 innings while compiling a superb 25:2 K:BB. He'll carry a 2.08 ERA and minuscule 0.60 WHIP into his next scheduled start, slated for Tuesday at home against Oakland.
Bundy (1-1) allowed three runs on four hits and two walks while striking out eight in six innings in a loss to the Mariners on Thursday.
Bundy cruised after allowing a three-run homer to Jose Marmolejos in the first inning, and the end result just met the standard for a quality start. The right-handed Bundy now has a 2.84 ERA through 12.2 innings this season. He's projected to start in a rematch in Seattle next Thursday.
Bundy (1-0) struck out seven and earned the win Saturday, giving up just one run on three hits over 6.2 innings in a 4-1 victory over the A's.
Bundy retired the first eight batters he faced and looked impressive throughout the entire game, allowing two singles and a double before departing the game in the seventh inning. He had a 4.79 ERA in 2019, but he will undoubtedly try to build on this performance ahead of his next outing. He is tabbed for a home start against the Astros on July 31.
Bundy took five turns on the mound and struck out eight hitters in an intrasquad game Tuesday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.
Against a lineup of mostly minor-league hitters, Bundy flashed his swing-and-miss arsenal while walking only one batter. It's always wise to avoid getting too excited about exhibition performances, but Bundy has thus far looked outstanding in an Angels uniform between spring training and summer camp. He's lined up to be an important piece of the team's rotation during the abbreviated season.
Bundy allowed two earned runs in 11.1 innings this spring while posting a 16:1 K:BB.
Though the sample size is small, Bundy appears to have adjusted well to his move from Baltimore, leading all Halos pitchers with 16 punchouts in Cactus League action. High strikeout numbers aren't abnormal for Bundy -- he whiffed over a batter per inning each of the last two seasons -- but he also combined for a 5.13 ERA and 1.38 WHIP over that span. Those numbers can be partly attributed to playing for a poor defensive club in a hitter-friendly home park, so it wouldn't be surprising to see Bundy take a leap and become a more attractive fantasy option in his first season with the Angels.
Bundy pitched two perfect innings against San Francisco on Saturday, striking out three.
Bundy followed a scoreless debut with another strong performance in Saturday's win. The veteran has combined for seven strikeouts in four innings in Cactus League play while allowing only one baserunner (via a walk). He figures to be a solid source of strikeouts this season and could emerge as a fantasy sleeper now that he's pitching in a less hitter-friendly ballpark and has a solid defense behind him.
Bundy tossed two scoreless innings against Cincinnati on Tuesday, allowing one walk and striking out four.
The 27-year-old couldn't have looked much better in his first game in an Angels uniform, punctuating his performance by striking out the final three batters he faced. Bundy has yet to post a sub-4.00 ERA over a full major-league season, but he has struck out over a batter per inning in each of his last two campaigns.
Bundy signed a one-year contract with the Angels on Friday, avoiding arbitration.
Bundy accrued a 4.79 ERA and 1.35 WHIP with a 162:58 K:BB over 161.2 frames in 2019 with the Orioles. After being dealt to Los Angeles in December, he's expected to slot into the middle of the starting rotation.
Bundy was traded to the Angels on Wednesday in exchange for right-hander Isaac Mattson and three other minor leaguers, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.
Bundy bounced back from his struggles in 2018 with a 4.79 ERA and 1.35 WHIP over 30 starts in 2019, although it only resulted in a 7-14 record with the rebuilding Orioles. The 27-year-old will likely have the chance to serve as a key piece in the Angels' rotation, and he could have the chance to earn a few more wins in 2020.
