BREAKING: #Orioles, in need of a fresh arm following their 18-inning victory, have promoted their top pitching prospect, Dylan Bundy, 19

He will join the team in Boston and not head out west for the matinee game with the Mariners. It will be interesting to see if he is used, but I think his role will be strictly "emergency" related role.

My guess that would use him in a game like last night. That would allow plenty of time to warm since he would know he's going to start an inning.
Still wouldn't allow for him to begin playing long toss three hours before his first pitch, however.

Now that he's gotten this behind him I would feel comfortable bringing him in at any point.

How did he look?
