The Orioles placed starting pitcher Dylan Bundy on the 10-day injured list with right knee tendinitis, the team announced today. Pitcher Tayler Scott was recalled from Triple-A.
Bundy underwent a medical exam this morning after feeling discomfort during yesterday’s shellacking at the hands of the Rays, per MASN’s Roch Kubatko. Bundy and the Orioles will sleep better chalking this one up to the injury after Bundy suffered through an 8-hit, 7-run barrage in his shortest outing of the year. He was pulled after one inning. The cavalry didn’t fare much better against the Rays, as Gabriel Ynoa wore the damage a day before they’d planned to use him in a piggyback role. Ynoa was ultimately tagged with 9 runs, 7 earned in 5 1/3 innings.
Bundy took the loss, falling to 4-11 on the year. In 18 starts, Bundy has a 5.28 ERA (5.30 FIP) with a 3.03 strikeout to walk ratio while lobbing 2.1 home runs per nine innings. His numbers took a hit with yesterday’s loss, of course, but the overall numbers aren’t far off what the Orioles have come used to seeing out of Bundy.
Scott, 27, is recalled for the first time since being acquired from the Mariners. He made two starts and three bullpen appearances in Seattle, serving up 10 earned runs in just 7 2/3 innings of work. The South African native was a 5th round draft pick of the Cubs in 2011. David Hess, meanwhile, will serve as the 26th man for today’s doubleheader, a role with which he is by now quite familiar.
Right knee tendinitis is the fancy way of saying that he sucks and doesn’t want to pitch for a while
Uh-huh. Gotcha. Is that Ritchie Bancells? No, right knee tendinitis is a condition in which the tissue connecting muscle to bone in the right knee becomes inflamed.
Your degree is in chemical engineering, Dolf.
Go back and look at his accolades in high school. And if you watch a game every few years its not his fault when he pitches orioles score 1-2 runs.
Even though his ERA is 5.28 and was 5.45 last year.
I would have figured it was from a sore neck.
I see what you did there. Only 1 of the 7 runs yesterday came from HRs, though
Might have been a Trade Candidate.
Gooooo Bundy !
Sit out a few starts to avoid the possibility of losing 20.
What an f’n loser this guy has been/is……I’d keep his butt on the bench or in the minors til he was 50 years old so he doesn’t get the money he is trying to steal because he wants to be traded for big bucks. No team will give anything worthwhile for this loser.
Yep. You’re nasty alright.
Erik Gonzalez and bag of balls for Bundy.
Who says no?
