Dylan Bundy 2017

Not worried.    First of all, he was hitting 93 consistently in the early innings.    Second of all, this guy is commanding four pitches.    It's a pleasure watching the hitters try to guess what's coming.    

Totally paraphrasing and have no real source to back it up, but heard Dave Johnson on the post game that a Steve Johnson (not his son) had done or read research which indicated that the fastball is now the major stressor on the elbow, not the offspeed stuff (specifically cited the previous contention that throwing too many curveballs would cause issues).   So maybe Bundy's higher usage of offspeed pitches could be a good thing in the long run.    Either way, I agree it is fun to watch.

I didn't get to watch tonight's game, but it seemed like Bundy pitched out of trouble almost every inning.   I would not have brought him out for the 8th, but I guess Buck wanted him to face the RHB before going to Hart.

Just shut out the best offense in MLB without his best stuff. Wow. Can't remember the last time I was this excited about an Oriole pitcher. The cutter/slider changes everything.

That's the biggest thing. Truly maturing.

He was pitching better in the later innings.  No issue with him being sent out on a short leash.  His stuff was still solid.

What impresses me most about Bundy is his pitchability.

Yep.   He's commanding four pitches.   He's a pleasure to watch.    I do think Buck has to be careful about pitching him one batter too far, and I'm also cocerned about whether the number of breaking pitches he's throwing will take a toll.    But for now, it's all good!

    • Ha.  Let me guess.  Ryan Mountcastle and Kyle Stowers.  😀
    • Kiley McDaniel newest mock has us taking college SS Kaelen Culpepper. Mentions that we are considered to be the floor with Carson Benge, but he goes to Milwaukee at 17 (who Kiley says is “all over” him). Also lists Kellon Lindsey, Dakota Jordan, Vance Honeycutt as guys we’ve been “mentioned” with, as well as Brody Brecht. Says we appear to be “shooting for upside.”
    • JD Martinez would be nice right now. I know I wasnt the only one who wanted him
    • What you just named are a bunch of guys with poor approaches…so I wouldn’t expect them to be reliable in any situation. I mean, Mounty and Santander can certainly get scorching hot and Mullins and Hays have been good players in the past but none of them are guys you feel confident in unless they get a hit. For all the grief we gave guys like Hicks and Frazier last year, they had good approaches and would take good at bats, even when they were sucking. They didn’t do much with anything most of the time but you at least felt good about them giving you a good at bat most of the time.  That’s why I think Cowser will eventually be really good in these situations. It’s why I think Adley is good in them…same with Gunnar.  Same with Holliday when he gets up here  But players with poor approaches who like to go fishing a lot?  It’s just not going to work out for them in the long run.
    • It did need to be pointed out though. 24 year old at high A is no great feat. Basallo is at double A 5 years younger. Sometimes you have to swallow your pride and look around for help. I would continue to try to poach coaches and scouts from great organization at developing pitching. The Pirates already had Skenes and Jones come up. They have 2 kids in Harrington and Chandler coming soon. They have invested in pitching and now are set for the future barring injury.
    • It was 6-9 last year as well IIRC.
    • It’s okay.  It’s a “Phil” thing.  Have you ever noticed any poster with the name “Phil” all have something else in common?   🙂
