Orioles’ prospect Dylan Bundy had been given three, three-inning starts to begin the season in low-A Delmarva, and he hadn’t allowed a hit. So last night they gave him four innings. And he still hasn’t allowed a hit. Not a bad way to begin a professional career.
He struck out six, needing only 44 pitches to do so. As usual he sat in the high-90s. He also flashed his high-80s changeup. It all sounds so very Strasburgian, yes?
I know the O’s want to be careful with Bundy and don’t want to move him a long too quickly, but I think it may be time to investigate high-A ball. Because, really, at some point he’s gonna have to see what it feels like to pitch out of the stretch, ya know?
