Bad news. His season is basically shot and you have to wonder about this injury. Doctors seems to be baffled right now.. 8-)

This news is not good, I would expect surgery will be the next announcement we will here about Dylan. Looking forward, next season will have serious limitations. Gotta wonder how the longevity of his career will be effected as well. New eta for Baltimore 2015.
Tough news for O's fans.

I posted this on April 30th.

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.

and this on May 22nd.
consider the dilemma we may face with Dylan Bundy. Drafted and signed to a ML contract in 2011 we've already used two options on him. If his arm problems cause him to lose a full season or so we may be placed in a situation where he has to complete his recovery on a 25 man roster AND cause his conversion to a reliever because we can't rebuild his innings in the minors.

I have also posted on many occasions that it wasn't realistic to consider Bundy as a viable option in the starting rotation until at least the beginning of next season and maybe mid 2014 because he needed to build up innings. Now that looks like it might not happen until 2015.

What are Bell's credentials other than the fact she writes for ESPN?? I think I would rather listen to a team of doctors first rather than a self-described medical expert.. 8-)

Bundy to undergo Tommy John surgery

After consulting today with orthopedic specialist Dr. James Andrew in Gulf Breeze, Fla., Orioles pitcher Dylan Bundy will undergo ligament-reconstructive surgery on his right elbow Thursday morning, according to an industry source.

Bundy was examined yesterday by team orthopedist Dr. John Wilckens before returning to Florida for a follow-up opinion.

An MRI taken on Bundy's right elbow back in April came back clean, but he's now been diagnosed with a small tear.


Who else saw this coming?

Oh well. He'll recover for a year, and get into some minor league action by the end of next year. Hopefully, he's ready to go at the beginning of 2015, where the Orioles could then decide to:
1.) start him off in the minors throwing limited innings
2.) pull a Kris Medlen and start him off in the bullpen
3.) pull a Stephen Strasburg and shut him down towards the end of the season

Props on making an (unfortunately) accurate call well in advance. I still think there's no way they could have actually gone ahead with the TJ surgery at that time though considering that his injury was to his flexor mass and not his UCL which was reportedly clean. If they had been aggressive with it like you suggested he may have had a chance to contribute next season but I still think they made the right call.

It's devastating to Dylan Bundy and the Orioles. Bundy doesn't know if he has a MLB career ahead of him. Nor do the Orioles. He went from being the #2 prospect in all of baseball to someone we can bump down into the 40-50 range in the teams list of minor league prospects.

Ghastly.

I agree it's a devastating turn of events but I wouldn't bump him down that far. TJ surgery has become an extremely successful procedure which has even lead to teenagers having it done as a preventative type measure (which on a side note I think we can all agree is absurd). Given Bundy's excellent work habits and determination I like his prospects for coming back as strong as ever from the surgery. It definitely pushes his timeline to where he can help the ML club back substantially though.
