Dylan Bundy may be coming off an injury and is not in the plans for Baltimore this season but he has a legitimate chance to be in the Baltimore Orioles’ starting rotation in 2016. In fact, you’ll probably see him on the mound in relief for the Orioles sometime this September.
Orioles’ manager Buck Showalter has already announced that Bundy will start the season at Double-A Bowie but no physical restrictions will be placed on him. This is a great sign for Bundy whose been through a couple of injuries, including Tommy John surgery.

While Bundy may be starting the year in Double-A, he’s still a top priority for the Orioles.
You may remember seeing him in the majors back in 2012. The 22-year-old right-hander was the fourth overall pick by the Orioles in the 2011 amatuer draft. In his first professional season at 19 years of age, Bundy was brought up to the big leagues in September. He pitched in two games for the Orioles. Bundy went 2 1/3 innings allowing just one hit, one walk and no runs.
Tommy John sugery in June of 2013 derailed his big league plans but Bundy is back in business and headed back to the big leagues in 2016. For more on this story, Bundy’s background and pitching style use the link below to go to Baseball Hot Corner:
