The Baltimore Orioles are throwing 19-year-old pitching prospect Dylan Bundy into the middle of a pennant race.
Baltimore recalled Bundy from Double-A Bowie on Wednesday. The right-hander will provide depth in the bullpen for the Orioles, who played an 18-inning game against the Mariners on Tuesday night and have an upcoming doubleheader against Toronto on Monday.
Bundy has not yet played in the majors and will be the first Oriole to debut before his 20th birthday since right-hander Mike Adamson in 1967.
Bundy was selected fourth overall in the 2011 draft. He was a combined 9-3 with a 2.08 ERA with three minor league affiliates this season, including 2-0 with a 3.24 ERA in three starts at Bowie.
