Orioles vs. White Sox lineups and pregame notes

*Dylan Bundy will not be a September callup and will instead head to instructional league when his season for Double-A Bowie ends, according to manager Buck Showalter. The organization is happy with the 19-year-old Bundy’s progress, but right now don’t think he’s ready. Bundy pitched 5 1/3 innings last night, allowing a pair of runs and walking four. Bundy has made three starts since being promoted to Bowie, going 2-0 with a 3.24 ERA over 16 2/3 innings, allowing 14 hits (three homers), three hit batsmen and eight walks against 19 strikeouts.

The organization’s top pitching prospect, Bundy didn’t allow an earned run in 30 innings of Low A ball, then had a 2.84 ERA in 12 starts in High A before being promoted to Bowie.

*Randy Wolf is in Baltimore and is expected to throw sometime in the next day or two before being added to the Orioles’ roster. Showalter insisted that the lefty Wolf is being looked at a starter first, although it looks like a better fit to have him as the second lefty in the bullpen.

*Seven Orioles prospects are included in the Arizona Fall League and on the Mesa Solar Sox roster : pitchers Michael Belfiore, Chris Petrini, Clay Schrader and Mike Wright; catcher Brian Ward; infielder Jonathan Schoop; outfielder LJ Hoes. There’s currently an empty spot on the roster and Showalter said that the original plan was to have Manny Machado play in the AFL as well.
