  3. NM, I missed the last portion. Just ignore this comment.

  4. Bundy threw a cutter for me at Hagerstown on Sunday too. Fantastic pitch (at the 7:22 mark):

  5. Great video! Thanks.

    He has virtually perfect mechanics. Though I still have some questions with what kind of supplementation that body is getting.

  6. Awesome analysis, thank you.

  7. Reports from the team have said they’ll cap Bundy around 125 innings this year. They’ve started him off slow so he’ll be able to go deeper in games against better competition and still be able to pitch all year instead of being shut down early.

  8. The hip turn is really incredible. Reminds me some of Neftali Feliz.

  9. This is an example of why gauging a young player’s mental makeup is so important. The O’s could have recognized early on that Bundy is just better than the league he’s in, and I guess I can’t think of any reason the young man wouldn’t welcome a promotion. Sure, he’s young, but he’s a first-round pick that was given millions of dollars to become a professional baseball player. Professionals in this industry are ready to relocate for the sake of a promotion.

  10. Promoted to Frederick.

  11. Tim Britton @TBritton_Projo

    Orioles promoted Dylan Bundy to High-A. He will start against Salem on Saturday.

    so much for their thinking of keeping his psyche right.

  12. ETA in the majors? 2013? 2014?

  13. I wrote up his last start for Low A Delmarva on Sunday. I’m not a scout so it’s not as “scouty” as this piece, but I think you can get a good feel for his outing.

  14. I would say 2014 is a safer bet, but he may get some time as a September call up if the Orioles can somehow compete next year.

  15. I don’t know about others, but I feel like he opens up too much and stays back too much. Usually unless there is a change in mechanics or the pitcher is C.C. Sabathia’s size this leads to arm problems down the road. Think Rich Harden or Strasburg.

  16. Beckett was the name that came to my mind first as I was reading the report.

  17. He’s basically just getting exercise at this point. Not only is he facing tremendously weak competition, but he’s not experiencing hitter adjustments by at most facing a handful of hitters twice in the same game. Doubly easy. Seems like a great way to derail a kid when they throw a larger workload and stronger competition at him simultaneously if he continues breezing through these guys much longer.

  18. He’s going to have to be amazing and catch on at each level quickly to get up that fast. Right now he’s facing an A- lineup one time through. Logically he’s moving at a much slower pace, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see Baltimore rush him the closer he gets.

  19. the only qualm i have is that he slows down his arm too fast. he doesn’t follow through quite enough, but everything else i see is just about perfect.

  20. They actually gave him the choice of starting out of the gate pitching 5 IP/G and being shut down early or building up his innings to go al year and he chose the latter.

  21. He got promoted to High A Frederick yesterday.

  22. Most Bundy’s prefer light beer!

  23. Arm action is fair. Stabs in the back w/out a full arm swing. It’s obviously nitpicking but I wouldn’t say it’s the best I’ve seen either.

    Comment by John — May 24, 2012 @ 7:40 pm

  24. Rotowire has him at 2013.

    Comment by Nic — May 29, 2012 @ 5:32 pm

  25. I think he needs a nickname. If he’s from the south somewhere, he could be “crocodile Bundy”, because of his muscular frame he could be “King Kong Bundy”.

    We need a section dedicated to nicknames.
