Dylan Bundy, the 4th overall selection in 2011 by the Baltimore Orioles, is facing a delay in his return. The 20 year old pitcher has been working on rehabbing his various arm injuries in an attempt to join the club for the first time this season.
However, that process will take longer than originally expected, as something did not feel right, and his throwing session was cut short as a result.
He will see two doctors today, Orioles orthopedist John Wilkins, as well as surgeon James Andrews. They will assess the situation with Bundy and presumably tell him if he should continue throwing, or if more needs to be done to fix whatever has been ailing the future ace.
He was originally diagnosed with some basic tightness in various arm locations, and was given an injection to combat it. However, it sounds like he is not progressing like they had hoped he would, and there could be something more to it.
Bundy pitched at four levels last year, from A ball to the bigs, and he was dominant at just about every stop. The O’s will not doubt want him back as soon as possible to help what has been a somewhat sub-par rotation.
