Top pitching prospect Dylan Bundy has been named to the Carolina League All-Star Game despite pitching in just three games for High-A Frederick.
He will be joined by two Keys teammates: Ty Kelly, who will start at third base, and Jeremy Nowak, who was named as a reserve outfielder.
The 19-year-old Bundy is 2-1 with a 3.00 ERA in three games after a promotion from Low-A Delmarva. For the Keys, Bundy has allowed five runs on 13 hits and four walks in 15 innings pitched. Last year’s first-round pick of the Orioles (fourth overall), Bundy has struck out 18 batters.
Kelly, a 13th rounder of the Orioles in 2009, is hitting .321 with a .426 on-base percentage and four homers in 47 games for the Keys. The 23-year-old switch-hitter also hit .278 in an 11-game stint with Triple-A Norfolk.
Nowak, a 13th rounder in 2010 for the Orioles, hit .316 with a .353 on-base percentage and three homers for the Keys in his first 50 games. He is a 24-year-old switch-hitter.
The game, against the California League All-Stars, will be held June 19 in Winston-Salem, N.C. Starting pitchers for the contest have not been named, but Bundy is a possibility.
