Dylan Bundy was the Orioles’ top draft pick. I can’t say that I like interleague play, but based on what he said about the Bryce Harper argle-bargle while appearing on 105.7 The Fan in Baltimore yesterday, I’d like to see the Nats and Orioles play 50 times a year starting in 2013:
Host Steve Davis: “So Dylan I’ll ask you the question: if you were facing Bryce Harper in the next game or you were the next pitcher to face him, what happens to Bryce Harper?”
Dylan Bundy: “Well if I was pitching the next game I’d hit him all four at bats.”
Remember that stuff I said about someone in the Nats organization needing to sit down and talk with Harper? Yeah, same goes for Bundy and the Orioles.
Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports that the Padres will place outfielder Franchy Cordero on the 10-day disabled list and activate outfielder Hunter Renfroe from the DL on Monday.
Cordero, 23, has been slumping, batting .140 with four extra-base hits in 47 plate appearances dating back to May 11. The Padres noticed that the forearm issue has been affecting his swing in recent games. Manager Andy Green said, “It was something where he could swing a certain way to manage it. But swinging that way was not him.”
Renfroe, 26, has been out since mid-April due to inflammation in his right elbow. He hit .200/.281/.440 in 57 PA prior to landing on the disabled list. Renfroe played in 10 rehab games with Triple-A El Paso.
