Dylan Bundy was once regarded as one of the three best prospects in all of baseball. He made his MLB debut as a 19-year-old in 2012, but then saw his once promising future derailed by elbow injuries.
This season, Bundy has shined out of the bullpen for the Orioles. After a June 4 relief appearance where he allowed two runs, Bundy hasn’t allowed a run over his last 14 1/3 innings and lowered his ERA from 4.94 to 3.08
Bundy will now get his chance to start for the first time in the majors and his first start since May 21, 2015 in Double-A Bowie.
In 2016, Bundy has thrown more than 50 pitches in just three of his 22 appearances, though two of those came in his last three appearances. Bundy likely won’t surpass more than 60-70 pitches in his start on Sunday.
