Bundy's shoulder structurally sound

Bundy's shoulder structurally sound

BALTIMORE -- The Orioles got good news on one of their top pitching prospects on Tuesday. Dylan Bundy -- who was shut down with tendinitis -- does not have any structural damage in his right shoulder.

O's manager Buck Showalter said Bundy won't need an MRI or any other tests, though he will take some time off. Bundy was originally slated to start for Double-A Bowie on Tuesday, but he was scratched. The Orioles are being cautious with the 22-year-old Bundy, who had Tommy John surgery in June 2013.

Bundy, ranked No. 1 on the Orioles' Top 30 Prospect list, has not gone more than four innings in any outing this year and is 0-3 with a 3.68 ERA in eight starts. In 22 innings, he has allowed nine earned runs with 25 strikeouts and five walks.
