Solid frame and good lower half. Described as “athletic thick” and carries weight well. Limited by height. Carries a bit of muscle for his age, could continue to add 5-10 pounds without adverse effect. Body type consistent with the workhorse power pitchers. Fastball sits in the mid 90’s late in games and he touches high 90’s with ease. Normally hits 98 mph and 99 mph several times per start; commands fastball well. Added cutter to arsenal in 2011; now a plus pitch. Cutter has a very nice horizontal plane with a tight late break; ranging from upper 80’s to low 90’s. Curveball has two plane curveball and sits in the mid to upper 70’s; should be above-average going forward. Changeup is a good pitch with room for improvement; sits in the upper 70’s and very low 80’s; should also become above-average pitch. He simply makes bats miss and racks up strikeouts. Dylan Bundy does a great job of working off the fastball with the cutter and really likes to attack hitters. Passion on the hill is obvious and he is constantly in a showdown against each and every hitter. Arm slot in the loading phase is a little stretched and he goes beyond the 90 degree angle with the hand. It is only slight and depending on coaching it could remain the same. His arm slot does add a bit of pressure, but nothing alarming of inverted problems. Has a lot of traits of a power pitcher with a solid tuck and a powerful stride to go with a smooth and seemingly effortless approach. Dylan Bundy gets a great amount of push from the lower half and it shows you why he can reach the upper 90′s. Downhill thrower with limited “wasted motion” and a solid plant foot. Could use a bit more follow through and finish the delivery better. Projects as a true ace.
