Bundy gets PRP, will rest six weeks

Top pitching prospect Dylan Bundy saw renowned orthopedist Dr. James Andrews on Monday and he received a platelet rich plasma (PRP) injection and was prescribed rest for six weeks.

Bundy, who has been diagnosed with what’s being called right flexor mass tightness, hasn’t throw off a regular mound since March and he experienced some discomfort when trying to throw off flat ground recently at the team’s spring complex. That prompted the 20-year-old Bundy to see a second opinion with Andrews, who saw him after Bundy was re-examined by team orthopedist Dr. John Wilckens.

The Orioles have remain optimistic in regards to Bundy’s injury given that an MRI done on his right elbow came back structurally OK, and the source of the injury is believed to mostly be in his forearm area. The injection was in the flexor mass area, which is where the forearm meets the elbow, and is the same treatment used for Zach Britton’s left shoulder impingement last spring.

So what is PRP?  The procedure consists of putting the patient’s blood through a special centrifuge to isolate platelets and growth factors, which are then injected back into the injured area to help spur healing.  There aren’t any side effects, meaning it won’t make Bundy any worse, but there are various degrees of success with it and the timetable for recovery is incredible varied.

Bundy will remain in Sarasota, Fla. while resting and allowing the PRP to take effect.  The fourth overall pick in the 2011 First-Year Player Draft, Bundy is rated as the No. 2 prospect in baseball by MLB.com. In 2012, he went 9-3 with a 2.08 ERA in 23 combined starts between the Class A and Double-A levels before making his highly anticipated big league debut in September. He turned in two scoreless relief appearances in the final week of the regular season.

Too bad Bundy wasn’t able to receive HGH injections along with other bodybuilding supplements and therapies. It would definitely work. Under the supervision of MLB doctor’s of course.
