Dylan Bundy, the Baltimore Orioles’ top pitching prospect, was placed on the DL with a right latissimus strain, according to the Baltimore Sun. The injury is said to be caused while Bundy was running, not throwing.
Bundy was drafted fourth overall in the 2011 draft. He quickly rose through the minor leagues, making his professional debut in April 2012, six months after signing with Baltimore. He made his debut with Single-A Delmarva and was promoted to Class-A Fredrick one month later.Embed from Getty Images
He stayed with Fredrick until August of that year when he was promoted to Double-A Bowie in early August. Bundy was then promoted once again to the major league team as a September call up.
In June of 2013, Bundy had Tommy John Surgery and missed the rest of the 2013 season and half of this season until he started his rehab assignment. Bundy was progressing through his rehab starts but hadn’t regained his form completely.
The good news in all of this is the arm Bundy is rehabbing is said to be fine. In nine rehab starts, Bundy has a 1-3 record with a 3.27 ERA. He allowed 38 hits, struck out 37 and walked 16 batters in 41.1 innings pitched. With Bundy already being on a pitch limit, he might be shut down for the rest for the season.
