where is Dylan Bundy?

where is Dylan Bundy?

First, there was a slight dip in velocity.

Then there was elbow tightness.

Then there was an MRI that reportedly looked o.k.

We haven't heard anything in a while. Anyone have any updates?

According to Roch Kubatko he started a throwing program last Thursday.

Forearm soreness after beginning his throwing program. Heading to Alabama to meet with Dr. James Andrews for a second opinion, possible second MRI.

It's safe to say this is ungood.

That would be an understatement.

No. It's not good. However, as we all know this wasn't one of those things they blew off. They at least by all appearances have taken his issue seriously and tried to act responsibly.

Let's wait and see what is said after the visit to Dr Andrews. This could still be a sortable situation.

The report I heard on the local news stated that Dylan is still feeling discomfort after throwing, so he is seeking a second opinion from Dr. Andrews. This does not sound very posative at all.
Im glad to see the team has excersied caution with Dylan, so is this injury just bad luck or is this a result of bad mechanics? Bobby has also had arm issues. Just wondering if the breakdown on his delivery revealed anything that the club should be worried about?

Sort of...

The main thing is that the "S" word isn't mentioned. However, we know little for six more weeks.

I was thinking the same thing. Chad Billingsly had the same treatment (although for a different affliction) last November, but decided that he needed surgery this spring to actually correct the problem. That delay probably cost him half of next season.

IMO if there's a 60% or better chance that he'll need surgery then I think they should just get it done now and have him ready for ST next year.

I think the jury is still out on this one. This seems like vodoo medicine to me but apparently Andrews has had some success with it. I'm of the opinion that if surgery can eradicate the problem totally then let's do it because I don't see much hope for Bundy this season anyways 8-)

According to multiple sources (Will Carroll and Don Olsen) on twitter, Bundy's issue was muscular and his UCL ligament (the Tommy John ligament) is clean. I agree with the concept that if it there's a good chance he'll need Tommy John they mine as well get it over with now considering how successful it has become, but fortunately it looks as though that isn't the case.
