It’s time for another edition of our Baltimore Orioles Minor League Spotlight and this week we focus on a particular pitcher and particular position player in the O’s system. Today we take a look at how RHP Dylan Bundy and OF Conor Bierfeldt.
Why these two guys? Well first off, there’s never a need for a reason to check in on Bundy, who is widely known as the Orioles’ top prospect, but Bierfeldt may be a surprise to you and what he’s doing deserves to be pointed out.
First we will start with Bundy, who we have all seen and know. Still just 22 years old, the right hander is in his first full season after undergoing Tommy John Surgery in 2013 that cost him all of 2013 and a major portion of 2014.
Bundy saw some action for the O’s in Spring Training and pitched okay. He had a 6.00 ERA over four appearances spanning six innings.
More importantly, he stayed healthy during the spring and was able to begin the 2015 with no limitations other than the organization imposed innings restrictions. Bundy has been in the starting rotation for the AA Bowie Baysox all season, and began working just two innings per start, then moved to three innings and on Thursday, he posted his first four inning start.Read more...
