Orioles prospect Dylan Bundy dealing with elbow tightness

MASN’s Steve Melewski describes the tightness Dylan Bundy is feeling in his right elbow as “mild”.

Melewski also added that Dan Duquette expects the issue to resolve in a couple days, but is resting Bundy until then.

Bundy made his Major League debut at the age of 19 at the end of September last year, throwing 1.2 scoreless innings. He enters the 2013 season as the #2 overall prospect as rated by both Baseball America and MLB.com. He will start the year with Double-A Bowie, but is expected to be brought up to the Majors at some point this season, likely after the Super Two deadline which should occur some time in July — it varies from season to season and the new collective bargaining agreement pushed the Super Two threshold from 17 percent to 22 percent.

    Bundy!

      He has the rare opportunity to become the best person with the last name Bundy. He’s already ahead of Ted Bundy, now he’s just gotta get past Al Bundy and King Kong Bundy.

        It is still Kelly in my book, not matter how many Cy Youngs this kid wins.

        ding ding ding – we have a winner — Kelly! And that’s coming from an O’s season ticket holder :)

    He threw 105 innings last year. Regardless of where he is doing it, I doubt he gets above 150 IP this year. Because of the likely innings limits (which are mostly because of his age), I kind of doubt he with the big club as anything more than a bullpen guy after pitching about 120 innings in the minors.

      Boooo!!!

      Guess where he’s from.

      • paperlions - Apr 1, 2013 at 7:42 AM

        Man, I’m gonna have to give that some thought, I mean, could be anywhere, anywhere at all, he’s a Bundy, so I assume he played for Polk High, is that in Illinois?

      • historiophiliac - Apr 1, 2013 at 7:47 AM

        Nah, I think he’s from a magical place where they grow baseball studs. Kid reeks of fried okra and Red Dirt music. For sure, not Texas though.

      • paperlions - Apr 1, 2013 at 7:50 AM

        Magical? So….Oz?

      • historiophiliac - Apr 1, 2013 at 7:52 AM

        No. Think less Technicolor and more meth.

      • paperlions - Apr 1, 2013 at 7:53 AM

        Drought cancelling technicolor?

        Man, that meth thing is just so sad.

        kOZma….yep, it’s magical.

        Hey, we had rain most of the weekend. Unfortunately, we could use a lot more rainy weekends. :(

      • paperlions - Apr 1, 2013 at 7:58 AM

        1 rainy weekend > 0 rainy weekends

        I’m just glad the average high for March this year wasn’t 60F like it has been the last 3 years, each of which led to hot/dry springs and low stream levels.

      • historiophiliac - Apr 1, 2013 at 8:01 AM

        Sucks for noodling.

      • paperlions - Apr 1, 2013 at 8:04 AM

        I’ll bet….did you watch the season finale last night :-)…good stuff.

      • historiophiliac - Apr 1, 2013 at 8:13 AM

        I don’t have cable, and why would a grown person watch another person fish? Vicarious fishing? Really? lol

      • paperlions - Apr 1, 2013 at 8:18 AM

        Just to see 60 lb flathead catfish, to see a guy get pinned under a concrete slab underwater, and to see what happens if you stick your foot into a beaver lodge (beaver bites foot, if you were wondering).

      • historiophiliac - Apr 1, 2013 at 9:12 AM

        Well, when you put it like that…

    • tuberippin - Mar 31, 2013 at 11:06 PM

      I was anticipating something similar, akin to how David Price was called up in 2008 and used exclusively out of the bullpen for the Rays in September and October.

      Still, if the Orioles don’t contend this season, I think he’ll still get a cup of coffee in the majors. Either way, it seems like a poor idea to call this kid up from AA ball and have him start out in the O’s rotation. Calling up prospects early and placing them into the rotation has seemed to backfire on Baltimore in recent years.

      I love how the only person with more than 2 thumbs up on this page has 126. Apparently your comment was so factual it nearly broke HBT

    Hopefully this doesn’t lead to TJ surgery. I would hate to see a young star go through that

  4. randygnyc - Apr 1, 2013 at 3:49 AM

    How is he not scheduled for an MRI? Even to just get a baseline look. He’s their future star, for Christ’s sake.

    • sabathiawouldbegoodattheeighthtoo - Apr 1, 2013 at 8:59 AM

      Just slap a leech on his elbow to draw some blood and re-balance the humors. That with an ice bath and a little Laudinum and he’ll be fine.

      • historiophiliac - Apr 1, 2013 at 9:13 AM

        Maybe a nice purge too?

    • randomdigits - Apr 1, 2013 at 3:48 PM

      He had one, it came back clean. Not sure why they didn’t update the post.
