Bundy struggles again at Frederick
BALTIMORE— Orioles righty Dylan Bundy, who will likely be limited to 75 pitches in every outing this year, exited Thursday’s start for Class-A Frederick in the fourth inning.
Bundy, who allowed a pair of singles before he was replaced, was charged with three runs against the Salem Red Sox. Making his fifth start, fourth with Frederick, Bundy had a 1-2-3 first inning that consisted of 15 pitches.
The 21-year-old issued a pair of walks to start the second inning and allowed a pair of RBI singles to Kendrick Perkins and Jordan Weems after that. Bundy worked around a one-double in the third inning, and started the fourth at 64 pitches.
The Orioles top pitching prospect, Bundy is recovering from Tommy John surgery and it’s unlikely -given his pitch constraints— that he’s a factor for the big league club this season.
