Dylan Bundy finally gave up a run

We’ve been keeping track of Dylan Bundy’s firsts because he’s started so well — he didn’t give up his first hit until his fifth professional start — so why not keep track of the first run too?

It came last night. It was unearned. And it wasn’t exactly a case of him getting knocked around: the runner reached on a wild pitch strike three, and came around on a couple of errors. Overall, Bundy struck out eight batters in three innings. He hit his pitch count, however, and had to come out.

So, through six professional starts, Bundy has now¬†pitched 20 innings, given up that unearned run, has allowed only two hits and has struck out 33. ¬†Think he’s ready for the next level Mr. Duquette?

    The Yankees should just take this kid.

      You mean the yankees who just got held to 3 runs over 3 games and went 1-2 in their series v. the O’s, then proceeded to play the terrible Royals and split? Yea they could use some pitching, but this kid is untouchable. They can stick to trading talented bats for injured pitchers.

    LOL… Now we’ll see how he handles adversity.

    He just needed to work from the stretch position. No one has gotten to second base, and before the game only two people have reached first. It was all a ploy to work on some things he couldn’t unless someone got on base.

    I’ve got Bundy on a dynasty fantasy team, and I’m incredibly excited about him. But after the last few years, I have next to no faith that the Orioles pitching coaches won’t find a way to screw him up.

    You know who hates that Dylan Bundy a-hole? Cole Hamels.

    AHHHHH the wheels have fallen off. Trade him for Suppan now. (sarcasm oozing out)

    Give him a few more starts where he is, then test him at Single A. Possibly a late AA run if all goes well. A late 2013 debut or 2014 please, our rotation is good right now (but all of us O’s fans are still terrified of it). Future looks bright for this kid, as of right now at least.

    Hell, even Matusz couldn’t get those numbers in low Single A.

    It should be noted that Bundy is starting games and pitching just 3-4 innings per start. That’s not to dis what he’s done, which is amazing, but just to put in perspective that he’s still a long, long way from the majors. They’re not going to ruin this kid.
