Dylan Bundy is hoping to avoid surgery with the help of the world-renowned Dr. James Andrews.  Bundy is battling a right elbow strain.  Dr. Andrews prescribed and injection Bundy with platelet rich plasma.  The procedure is designed to help promote healing. Bundy is one of the highest-rated prospects in baseball, and the Baltimore Orioles want to take every precaution they can.  Roch Kubatko of MASN says Dr. Andrews also prescribed six weeks of rest. Dr. Andrews recommended and administered a PRP(platelet rich plasma) injection to Dylan Bundy & prescribed rest for six weeks #orioles — Roch Kubatko (@masnRoch) April 29, 2013 Bundy made his Major League debut last season.  He appeared in two games and did not allow a run.  However, this season was supposed to be Bundy's first real shot at the show.  Unfortunately, the elbow injury has prevented Bundy from proving himself worthy of being on the Orioles' 25-man roster. Bundy is the second-best prospect in baseball according to both Baseball America and MLB.com.  That's high praise for a player who has only appeared in 23 minor league games.  Bundy's meteoric rise has been impressive, but the O's are not willing to risk pushing him now.  They will take their time, let him heal and bring him along naturally. Bundy's six weeks of rest will likely just be the beginning.  He's not going to jump right onto the 25-man roster after that.  If he is healthy, he will make some minor league starts after throwing some bullpen sessions.  It's not likely that Bundy returns to the Orioles before July.
