Did they push him back or are they on a 6-man rotation? He pitched the first game, and they've played 6.

Six man rotation for now. Tim Berry, Parker Bridwell, Tyler Wilson, Eduardo Rodrigez and Miguel Chalas as well as Dylan Bundy.

How are they going to see how he makes adjustments when he only pitches three innings every six days? If he is clean then he is looking at one trip through the lineup, that doesn't give the other team much of a chance to adjust to him, even less of a chance for him to adjust back.

I don't think Baltimore is concerned with what LoA players can or can't do against Bundy. He's getting his work in, adjusting to travel/lifestyle, and building momentum for later in the year.

I don't know. But it appears to be their plan for now. They are trying to be real careful.

The article Weams linked to specifically mentioned Bundy making adjustments.

"My curve isn't there today, so I need to figure out something else."

"Not getting the low strike, so I'll need to work in/out more often."

rather than

"I set up this overmatched hitter with fastballs last time so I'm going to back-door him with a breaking ball to start off his second at bat."

At least, that's what I think when someone says they want to see a pitcher make adjustments over the course of the first three innings. I maintain that the LoA hitters are mostly inconsequential to the exercise, but what do I know -- I'm no developmental guy.

I see your point but I still assert three inning increments at this level of competition isn't going to accomplish one of their stated goals.

I wanted him in High A to begin with.

Noted. I'm not sure how to test your hypothesis, but I guess we'll see how Bundy develops, eh?
