Dylan Bundy shut down with elbow stiffness

Well…so much for Bundy having to wear a phony sling now.

Orioles top prospect Dylan Bundy has been shut down after experiencing some mild elbow tightness in his throwing arm.

“He’s going to rest it for a few more days until it goes away, and we expect that to be in a couple of days and then at that point he would resume his throwing,” Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette said. “He’s had some tightness for a couple of days. I think it came to light last week.”

Duquette said Bundy complained of the tightness a few days after his final minor league spring start. Bundy had an MRI taken on the elbow and the results were negative, showing mild tightness in a muscle in the area of his elbow.

Bundy will have to begin a throwing progression once he returns, which places his availability for the beginning of the minor league season at Double-A Bowie in question. His first start of the season for the Baysox has not yet been scheduled.

“We’re just being cautious to shut him down until the muscle tightness goes away,” said Brian Graham, the Orioles’ director of player development. “He’ll start back with a throwing program and evaluate it from there. We really don’t know what day he’s going to pitch. It’s all based on how he feels when he’s throwing again.”

First break of season not in Baltimore's favor this year.

I did a control-F on 'forearm' and nothing came up so I guess there's hope. My informal study shows that forearm stiffness turns into TJ surgery 101 times out of 100.

In an effort to short-circuit future embarrassment, let me state that I simply can't keep Dylan Bundy and Trevor Bauer straight.

I'm starting to think they should just give every incoming top-tier pitching prospect a preemptive Tommy John surgery just in case.

@8: would shortening the key ligament by a little give a pitcher's arm more snap/more velocity?

This guy has an "I'll once tell my grandkid about this guy" level of talent.

I'd hate to see this be anything serious.

Pitchers are such teases.

You said stiffness. Ha. </beavis>
