Dylan Bundy gets fan vote for top minor league starting pitcher of 2012

This award surely won't earn the centerpiece on Dylan Bundy's mantel, but the Orioles' top pitching prospect has earned the MiLBY Award as the fans' choice for minor league starting pitcher of the year in all of baseball.

Miami Marlins prospect Jose Fernandez earned the vote of the writers at MiLB.com in results announced Tuesday.

Bundy -- who pitched the first 33 innings of his career without allowing an earned run and quickly made his way up to Bowie, and then Baltimore -- earned 20 percent of the fans' votes to beat out Fernandez and 10 other nominees.

The Orioles have another affiliate up for an award next week when the best moment of the season is unveiled. Rip Tide, the mascot at Triple-A Norfolk, is nominated for wiping out while riding an ATV.

Only in minor league baseball.
