Orioles prospect Dylan Bundy has more arm problems

11 Comments

Orioles pitching prospect Dylan Bundy’s comeback from Tommy John elbow surgery has been put on hold due to shoulder soreness.

Bundy was scratched from his scheduled start at Double-A, but Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports that an examination “went well” and the Orioles are “hopeful it’s just a mild case of tendinitis.”

Bundy made his big-league debut in 2012 at age 19 and then ranked as the consensus No. 1 pitching prospect in baseball, but three years later he’s still trying to get back on track. For now he’ll rest and try to re-start his comeback next month.

Prior to being shut down Bundy was pitching well at Double-A with a 3.68 ERA and 25/5 K/BB ratio in 22 innings as a 22-year-old.
