Breaking news: Orioles prospect Dylan Bundy is human

Orioles stud prospect Dylan Bundy was almost literally unhittable at low Single-A to begin the season, throwing 30 innings with a 0.00 ERA and 40/2 K/BB ratio while holding opponents to a .053 batting average.

That earned him a promotion to high Single-A and Bundy has continued to pitch well there with a 23/6 K/BB ratio in 19 innings–particularly considering he’s just 19 years old–but he’s also allowed at least one run in all four of his starts and yesterday struggled for the first time as a pro.

Bundy failed to make it out of the fourth inning while allowing four runs, including his third homer in four starts, and now has a 4.42 ERA at high Single-A.

None of which changes the fact that he’s among the truly elite handful of prospects in all of baseball, but it does show why teams don’t just rush a prospect through the farm system when he dominates at the lower levels. Bundy still projects as a future ace and still figures to be in the majors by his 21st birthday, but it turns out he’s also human.

    Bundy is a fantastic prospect, and young for high A ball at 19….he’s 29 days younger than Bryce Harper.

    No way this guy is human. There’s probably a small bug in his android brain. A quick diagnostic and tune up with reset his system back to their proper insane dominance of feeble batters having the unfortnate experience of facing him.

      He’s probably been spending too much time
      at the nudie bar
      where there`s a cop at the door
      and a Kennedy on the floor
      at the nudie bar

    Is this Al Bundy’s or Ted Bundy’s son?
