Bundy has setback, to be re-examined

Orioles top pitching prospect Dylan Bundy had a setback in his rehab program on Monday and is expected to be re-examined by team orthopedist Dr. John Wilckens on Tuesday.

Bundy, who had been throwing from 120 feet, felt some discomfort at the team’s spring facility in Sarasota, Fla. and he is also expected to see Dr. James Andrews after being checked out by Wilckens. Andrews administered the platelet rich plasma (PRP) in Bundy’s right flexor mass –the forearm/elbow area — and prescribed rest for six weeks following the April 29 injection, which is supposed to spur growth.

It’s unknown immediately the severity of Bundy’s setback or if he will undergo another series of tests. Until Monday’s news, he had been slowly progressing back toward getting up on a regular mound for the first time since March, but obviously this setback could change things considerably.

The fourth overall pick in the 2011 First-Year Player Draft, Bundy was rated as the No. 2 prospect in baseball by MLB.com entering the season but has yet to throw a pitch in 2013. 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.

Not good news. Probably done for the year to be extra cautious. Anybody know the money Bundy received at signing? What kind of deal he has? Thanks.

CBS is saying Tommy John surgery is needed.

News you don’t like to see for any player regardless if an oriole fan or not But as I stated the other day the setback didn’t look good. Hopefully he’ll make a quick comeback.
