Orioles’ Top Prospect On Track For July Return

The Baltimore Orioles have announced that top prospect Dylan Bundy is continuing to progress nicely in his rehabilitation from Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery and should return to game action in July.

Bundy threw a 50-pitch bullpen session on Thursday and is currently scheduled to face live batters on Tuesday and be pitching in extended spring training games within two weeks.

A 21-year-old right-hander and the Orioles’ first round pick in the 2011 MLB player draft, Bundy went 9-3 with a 2.08 ERA, 0.92 WHIP, and 119 strikeouts in 103 innings pitched in the Orioles system in 2012 before missing last season due to the elbow injury.

Bundy could be a very interesting and valuable mid/late season addition to the Orioles’ pitching staff as they compete in the hotly contested AL East race.
