BALTIMORE (WJZ)– The Orioles have recalled right-handed pitcher Dylan Bundy from their minor league team, Double-A Bowie.
Bundy, 19, will be the second player in the team’s history to debut before his 20th birthday. The first player to do so was RHP Mike Adamson on July 1, 1967. Adamson was also 19 at the time.
Bundy was the Orioles first-round selection in the 2011 First Year Player Draft with a combined 9-3 with 2.08 ERA in 23 starts with three team affiliates, striking out 119 and walking 28. He was selected for the Baseball America Minor League All-Star Team after his minor league season.
Bundy began his career with Class A-Delmarva where he went 1-0 in eight starts without allowing an earned run in 30 innings. He has a 6-3 with a 2.84 ERA in 12 starts for Class-A Frederick. He finished his minor league season with Double-A Bowie going 2-0 with a 3.24 ERA in three starts. Bundy was responsible for Bowie’s win against Akron in Game One of the Eastern League Playoffs on Sept. 5, allowing one earned run over 6 innings with seven strikeouts.
Bundy will join infielder Manny Machado, 20, to become the first pair of Orioles to debut in the same season at such a young age since 1964 when outfielder Paul Blair and left-handed pitcher Frank Bertaina made their debut.
