MLB Injury News:
One visit with Dr. James Andrews can be scary enough. Baltimore Orioles top prospect Dylan Bundy made his second trip to see the infamous surgeon today, as he faced another setback involving his ailing elbow. Meetings with Andrews often don't end well, and Danny Knobler of CBS Sports believes this will be the case today. He spoke with sources who told him that the expectation is that Bundy will require Tommy John surgery.
Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports confirmed the bad news shortly after Knobler's report.
News on Dylan Bundy not good. Will undergo Tommy John surgery. Partial tear in elbow #Orioles
— Roch Kubatko (@masnRoch) June 26, 2013
Significant elbow surgery is never good news. However, Bundy is only 20 years old, and the operation has grown leaps and bounds since inception. For that reason, this isn't something that is expected to devastate Bundy's career.
What it will do is sideline him for at least a year after the operation is completed. He'll then have to work his way back, which could mean he doesn't pitch for the Orioles much at all next season.
At first, Bundy and the Orioles hoped to avoid surgery. To aid this, the right-hander received a platelet-rich plasma injection in his elbow after he was initially shut down. He got to the point where he was able to resume throwing, but this was also halted by another setback.
Bundy flew through the minors last season after the O's made him the fourth player selected in the 2011 MLB Draft. He was expected to join Baltimore's rotation for good at some point this season, as he's posted an ERA and WHIP of 2.08 and 0.916 with a 4.25 strikeout-to-walk ratio over 23 starts in the minors.

Prior to being dismissed as the Baltimore Orioles’ President of Baseball Operations, Andy MacPhail had his sights set on a new shortstop for the organization.

Davis and the Orioles continue a four-game set against the visiting Cleveland Indians, who are hoping to welcome shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera back Wednesday night following a three-week absence.
Last night in Baltimore the Indians played a game that made you proud to root for this team. Watching them battle, execute, and eventually win this one was another example of why this particular group can be easy to love.
Sure, for the first five innings you probably didn’t feel this way and I can certainly understand why. Baltimore’s Zach Britton shut the Tribe down completely...
