It was only a matter of time until 2011 Orioles first-round pick Dylan Bundy found himself moving up the levels of Baltimore’s minor league sytem with the success and dominance he has been having.
The Orioles announced Wednesday that Bundy would be moving up from the Delmarva Shoebirds to the Frederick Keys, the “high-A” class of the Orioles’ minor leagues.
He will make his first start for Frederick Saturday against Salem, the Keys announced.
In 30 innings of work for Delmarva, Bundy-the fourth overall pick out of Owasso High School-registered 40 strikeouts while only allowing five hits, two walks, and two unearned runs.
If Bundy’s success were to continue, he could find himself moving up another level to the Orioles’ Double-A affiliate in Bowie, or maybe a major league call-up in September.
