Tough news for O's fans.
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.
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.
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?
