Top pitching prospect Dylan Bundy has been called up Wednesday by the Baltimore Orioles, and is expected to pitch out of the bullpen.
Bundy, the No. 2 overall prospect on MLB.com's Top 100 Prospects List, behind Texas Rangers phenom Jurickson Profar, was barely challenged in the minors. The 19-year-old went a combined 9-3 with a 2.08 ERA between Single-A Frederick and Double-A Bowie.
The fourth overall pick in the 2011 draft will become the first Baltimore player to make his Major League debut before age 20 since right-handed pitcher Mike Adamson in 1967.
The Orioles are percentage points behind the New York Yankees in the American League East race. Last month, they summoned their top offensive prospect, Manny Machado, and inserted him at third base.
