Orioles prospect Dylan Bundy makes second Arizona Fall League start

How did Dylan Bundy do in his second AFL outing?

Orioles pitching prospect Dylan Bundy made his second Arizona Fall League appearance Friday, making a one-inning start for the Peoria Javelinas against the Surprise Saguaros.

Bundy allowed one run on two hits in the 19-pitch outing, but threw all of his pitches. His fastball was in the 92-94 range and he also added in a slider, changeup and curveball in his inning. Fourteen of his 19 pitches were strikes.

As was the case in his first fall league appearance Monday, Bundy was limited to one inning. These are Bundy’s first two games since May after he was shelved with right shoulder inflammation.  

The 22-year-old Bundy is scheduled to pitch again Monday. He will make two appearances a week for the two remaining weeks of the fall league schedule.

Because injuries have limited Bundy to 17 minor league appearances since his 2013 Tommy John surgery, the Orioles wanted to give him some game innings before this spring. Bundy will also attend the Orioles minicamp in January in Sarasota, Fla.  

On Friday, Bundy allowed a leadoff single to Charlie Tilson (St. Louis Cardinals) to open the game. After stealing second base and moving to third on a groundout, Tilson scored on Texas Rangers prospect Jurickson Profar’s sacrifice fly. Bundy also allowed a two-out bloop single to Gary Sanchez (New York Yankees).

In his first outing on Monday, Bundy needed just seven pitches to retire the side in order.
