The younger of Baltimore's Bouncing Baby Bundies, the growly-looking Dylan is a righthander with ace upside, but he remains relatively untested against pro hitters, and under professional pressure. His ungodly 0.25 ERA and 158 strikeouts in 71 innings as a high school senior earned him honors as the Gatorade National Baseball Player of the Year, BA's High School Player of the Year Award and USA Today's National Player of the Year. That said, he's still what we in the business like to call a high school pitching prospect, which is a term of art meant to indicate that this category of gamble is among the riskier bets in baseball.
His fastball/cutter combination is a genuine plus combo, and he's been improving his command and control while working on improving his changeup in the minors. He'll need that to succeed. The Baltimore organization has done nothing in the last few years to suggest they're not one of the very best incubators for pitching talent, so overall, we're believers. He found a good level at AA Bowie in 2012, and should spend most or all of 2013 in the same uniform.

News and Notes

Despite the fact that his name keeps coming up in conversations along with Dr James Andrews, all reports so far support the Orioles' official story that top prospect Dylan Bundy is suffering from nothing worse than 'elbow tightness'. He'll receive platelet-rich plasma injections and continue to rest his arm for another month or so before re-testing it. Surgery or not, 2013 is looking like a lost season for Bundy.

Nobody really expected Dylan Bundy to make the MLB club out of spring training, so nobody should be surprised that he'll open the year in AA instead. Bundy, along with Kevin Gausman, will provide a potent 1-2 starting punch for the Baysox until one, the other, or both are ready for MLB later this year.

Maybe they're running out of stops to pull out, or maybe they're just plain exhausted after that 18-inning marathon in Seattle, but either way the Orioles have finally made the long-awaited move to call up righthander Dylan Bundy. 19 year old Bundy, the O's top prospect (and one of the very tippy-toppiest prospects in all of baseball) will join the team on Wednesday.
