Orioles promote top prospect Dylan Bundy to Double-A

11 Comments

Dylan Bundy is on the move for the second time in less than three months, as the Orioles have promoted the No. 4 overall pick in the 2011 draft from high Single-A to Double-A.

For a 19-year-old in his first pro season to play at three different levels is pretty rare, but Bundy posted a ridiculous 0.00 ERA in 30 innings at low Single-A and has been fantastic at high Single-A with a 2.57 ERA and 56/15 K/BB ratio in 49 innings.

He doesn’t turn 20 years old until November, but this promotion gives Bundy a chance to face strong competition for the final month of the season and lines him up to possibly reach the majors around the middle of next year if he continues to thrive.

He projects as a potential No. 1 starter and Baseball America‘s midseason rankings update pegged him as the top prospect in all of baseball now that Mike Trout, Bryce Harper, and Matt Moore are in the majors for good.

Astros third baseman Alex Bregman apparently wasn’t happy with his mustache on Sunday afternoon as he shaved it off in between innings during his team’s contest against the Royals. Bregman walked and later scored in the Astros’ eight-run second inning, but when he took his next plate appearance in the fourth inning, he was clean-shaven.

Sometimes you just need to switch things up. 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♀️

Bregman made a throwing error in the seventh and finished 0-for-4 with the walk on the afternoon. The Astros won 11-3.

Bregman isn’t the only player to make headlines for his facial hair recently. Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper recently shaved his signature beard. The Yankees approve of what both players have done.
