Baltimore Orioles

Dylan Bundy to be featured on Sports Illustrated TV show and in magazine

Orioles top prospect Dylan Bundy will be featured in a segment on the premiere episode of Sports Illustrated's new television series, which debuts Tuesday night on NBC Sports Network.

The 19-year-old right-hander is also the subject of a story by SI's Tom Verducci in the upcoming issue of the magazine.


The television series -- which seems a bit like ESPN's E:60 -- airs at 9 p.m. According to an email from an SI spokesman, "The show will take Sports Illustrated's renowned editorial pieces and play them out through feature segments with original reporting from SI journalists."

See the video above for the trailer.


This week's SI cover has been posted a few places and features Penn State, but it also displays a Bundy headline at the top.

This coverage amounts to the greatest national attention Bundy has received since being drafted by the Orioles out of an Oklahoma high school with the No. 4 overall pick last June.

The hard-throwing pitcher is a combined 5-3 with a 1.74 ERA in his first professional season pitching for Low-A Delmarva and now High-A Frederick. He also pitched an inning in the All-Star Futures Game earlier this month in Kansas City.

Baseball America ranked him as the No. 1 prospect in all of baseball on its midseason list.
