Orioles Pitching Prospect Bundy Shines In Minors

BALTIMORE (AP) — During his first season in professional baseball, Baltimore Orioles pitching prospect Dylan Bundy has learned about the goodness of Maryland crabs, explored the East Coast for the first time and displayed an enormous amount of patience.

The 19-year-old has also dominated the South Atlantic League, blowing away batters in much the same fashion he did one season ago in high school.

Bundy has started five games for the Orioles’ Class A affiliate, the Delmarva Shorebirds. Over 17 innings he has allowed one hit, walked two and struck out 25.

That doesn’t mean Bundy is destined to be pitching for the Orioles anytime soon. The team has decided to bring him along slowly, a plan designed to preserve the arm of the fourth overall pick in the 2011 draft.
