Dylan Bundy- The Killer of Single-A Baseball

Friday night, summer time, beautiful weather, baseball, a home game for the Short-Season Single-A Aberdeen Ironbirds, what more could a fan want? Oh yeah, did I mention the top pitching prospect in the Orioles organization was starting the game, which just so happened to be exactly one year after he had Tommy John Surgery? Friday night, that is what fans got; Dylan Bundy started for the Aberdeen Ironbirds and continued his domination of Low-A minor league baseball.

Friday night, Bundy threw five innings of three-hit shutout ball. Bundy also struck out seven and walked two batters. As mentioned, Friday’s date marked the one-year anniversary of Bundy having Tommy John Surgery but more importantly Friday was his third rehab start of the season. Needless to say, Bundy is right on schedule.

Dylan Bundy injury update

A lot of people have been asking me how Dylan Bundy is doing and how far off he is.  Remember he pitched mostly at double-A Bowie before he got injured and needed Tommy John Surgery. 

Bundy has been pitching in extended spring training which means he is closing in on starting a rehab assignment.  Bundy tweeted yesterday that he threw two innings in extended spring training and feels great, which is a good sign.  Some reporters have said that Bundy’s fastball is starting to come back and it is right now in the low 90’s.  Read more about Dylan Bundy injury update
