So, maybe Dylan Bundy should have been started above low-A ball. In his pro baseball debut, for the Delmarva Shorebirds, Bundy pitched 3 perfect frames (they're trying to limit his innings). He struck out 6, and apparently threw 21 out of 21 pitches* for strikes (that's 100%, which seems pretty good). Even though he's coming from high school, he's already 19 and is more advanced than your average high schooler. I don't think it'll be too long before Bundy moves up, maybe even hitting Double-A early enough to get a fair number of starts there this year. I'm not generally a fan of picking pitchers high in the draft (if there are comparable position players around), but if it works out it's pretty awesome.

In other top O's prospects news, Manny Machado homered on the first pitch he saw for Bowie and then added a single and a steal. Good day for the organization.

* It was pointed out that that means the 6 K's were on 3 pitches each, and the other three outs were each on one pitch. Seems unlikely - the count is probably off. Or Dylan Bundy is made of magic.
