Dylan Bundy Updates

If you do that he won't have enough innings in 2016 to be a full-time starter in 2017.

He will if you build his innings during extended spring training (not official innings but his arm and elbow don't know the difference), his rehab assignment, major league bullpen, and a few starting appearances. He's also likely to be eligible to pitch in the AFL since he's coming off an injury. He may not build up enough innings to start the 2017 season in the rotation, but he could be by mid-season.

I have never heard of spring training innings, extended or otherwise, counting toward an innings cap.

That would be akin to counting bullpen sessions.

Shhh, don't try to derail the folks that still think Dylan Bundy is going to be a starting pitcher for the O's (any time before 2017).

I'd bet a little more than a wood nickel that he will never pitch meaningful innings in the majors.

I would take that bet. Players recover from Tommy John surgery.

An update from Roch.

Reactive calcification is different. Why it occurs is not clear. It doesn't seem to be related to degeneration, though it is more likely to cause shoulder pain than degenerative calcification. Doctors think of reactive calcification in three stages. In the pre-calcific stage, the tendon changes in ways that make calcium deposits more likely to form. In the calcific stage, calcium crystals are deposited in the tendons. Then they begin to disappear. The body simply reabsorbs the calcium deposits. Ironically, it is during this stage that pain is most likely to occur. In the post-calcific stage, the body heals the tendon, and the tendon is remodeled with new tissue.

No one knows what triggers the body to reabsorb the deposits. But once this occurs and the tissue begins to be remodeled, the pain usually decreases or goes away altogether.

If Bundy is healthy and effective, I could see him in a swing role, pitching in multi-inning relief and picking up an occasional start. They will want him to get about 5 innings a week in preparation for the 2017 rotation.

Many will consider him being healthy and effective as two very long shots, but I prefer to be optimistic.

Its normal for everyone to be down in the dumps with our top prospects of late being seriously bitten by the injury bug, however, it kinda seems this calcium build up he had is not THAT major of an issue. It kinda seems similar to having a bone mass removed in that it is a surgery but nothing that is career threatening or even career lessening(if that's a term). So if that is true, essentially people are expecting Bundy to fail because he had Tommy John Surgery which is totally illogical. Objectively speaking, forgetting that nearly every O's pitching prospect fails whether its performance or injury, would anyone really bet against a pitcher being any good because of TJ?

    • Live reaction everyone was upset by the lack of pitchers. My quick synopsis. Elias stuck to his guns by drafting all shortstop, catcher or center fielders as position players. I’m excited to see how they are able to do in terms of signing the high school kids. I think the draft will be defined by the success of Honeycutt and any of the high school position players. If I ranked the players I’m excited for it would be Honeycutt, George, Layton, O’Farral, Tess, Anderson, Overn. Looks like speed and defense were highly emphasized. Wonder if that has to do with the pitch timer rules.
    • I'd rather hold on to everybody and go with what we have. World Series be damned. Say goodbye to Santander, Urias and Mateo in the offseason, sign FA pitchers

    • Who are the FA pitchers available in the offseason? (other than Burnes)
    • Nothing can guarantee anything. But adding that kind of SP would give us the best chance possible (barring injury) this season and for the next few. Trading 2 of Holliday, Mayo, Basallo is not even on the table or a part of any realistic discussion/scenario. That kind of haul has not been landed for a pitcher and certainly not in this current era of MLB where prospects/cheap young players are more valuable than ever. Maybe Paul Skenes (currently) could land that kind of haul? Otherwise, the value proposition is not there to be considered. Skubal hasn’t even amassed a 10.0 career WAR and before this year didn’t even have a 5.0 WAR season. He simply not worth anything close to that, no matter what irrational fear or fandom suggests. 
    • Again there is nothing in terms of precedent in the last 10 years that suggests a pitcher of Skubal’s pedigree/career achievements with that amount of control left can bring back a Soto kind of haul. Look at Soto’s season average in terms of WAR and look at Skubal’s. The two are not similar in terms of value. Either Morosi is serving as a mouth piece for the Tigers in order to overstate Skubal’s value and drive up the price? Or he is serving his heart’s interest as a New Yorker and Yankee fan.
    • Doesn’t guarantee us a ring. That’s the risk. We could survive a package of Holliday, EBJ, McDermott, Norby, Stowers, and Willems.   Honestly, we could survive a lot but trading two of the big three would be just bidding against ourselves.
