Found April 26, 2012 on The Outside Corner:
The line reads out of MLB 12: The Show on Rookie setting while using Justin Verlander against a Double-A team: 40 batters faced over 13 innings, no runs, no hits, one walk, 21 strikeouts at Low-A Delmarva. Go ahead and read that again. Okay, one more time. Impressed yet? Did I mention he's only 19 years old? And that he's doing this in the 4th best run-scoring environment in the minor leagues? Dylan Bundy is someone who would finishing up a freshman year at college right now. Then again, when you win the National High School Player of the Year Awards from Baseball America, USA Today and that bastion of baseball journalism, Gatorade, you might as well just see if the pros could challenge you. And right now, he needs a challenge in a BIG way. It could be possible that Bundy was underrated accross the board. Kevin Goldstein ranked him #6 on his Top 101 coming in to 2012. Baseball America's group of writers ranked him #10. Keith Law ranked him #11. (I also find it fun...

Orioles Pitching Prospect Dylan Bundy Dominating Competition, Has Yet to Allow Hit This Season

Dylan Bundy is a minor league pitcher in the Orioles system, but could very quickly be making his way to the bigs if he continues his recent run of success. The 19-year-old Orioles prospect has retired 39 of 40 hitters he has faced so far in his pro career, and the lone baserunner was a walk. That means he's in the midst of 13 no-hit innings, with 21 of those 39 outs recorded...

Matt Barnes and Christian Yelich: Scouting the Unknown

Matt Barnes | RHP, Red Sox | Born:  6/17/1990 As I’m writing this, Matt Barnes is on the bump for Low-A Greenville versus Delmarva, the Orioles South Atlantic League affiliate.  Delmarva is starting Dylan Bundy.  It’s a matchup of 2011 first-rounders and one could not handpick a better pitchers duel from SAL rosters.  Now, Bundy is the more highly touted prospect of the two...

New York Yankees: Can you not lose to Verlander please

Coming home after losing the last two games of a road trip is never a good feeling. Returning to face the 2011 MVP and CY Young award winner Justin Verlander makes that losing feeling never go away.

Nats' limit on Strasburg may hurt team

Six years ago, Justin Verlander was Stephen Strasburg. He was 23. He was an ace-in-training. He was in his first full major-league season. He was pitching for an underdog that created championship expectations with a fast start. All of that is true for Strasburg and the 2012 Washington Nationals. Jim Leyland, in his first season as the Detroit manager, vowed to take good care...

Tigers-Yankees Preview

The Detroit Tigers eliminated the New York Yankees in the opening round of the playoffs last fall.

Yankees-Tigers Preview

The Yanks just spent a couple of days getting shut down by a pair of pitchers they had no business being shut down by. The Detroit Tigers are coming off a sweep at the hands of the Seattle Mariners. Two teams expected to reside at the top have been decidedly mediocre early in the season, with both of them residing in .500 territory. Tonight, last year’s MVP will meet the Yankees’...
