ST. PETERSBURG -- Orioles top pitching prospect Dylan Bundy threw Thursday with no reported issues, and the organization remains optimistic that it is a minor issue with Bundy, who was placed on the Minor League disabled list with tightness in his right forearm/elbow.

Bundy, who will start the season with Double-A Bowie, is on the seven-day DL in the Minor Leagues. The 20-year-old appeared in four big league games this spring before he was optioned, and his velocity was down from last year along with some mechanical issues that Bundy said caused him to be a little "out of whack." The Orioles will proceed cautiously with Bundy, who ascended to the Majors in his first full pro season last year.

Right-hander Steve Johnson (right lat strain) began a throwing program Wednesday at the team's spring complex in Sarasota. Johnson is expected to start the season at Triple-A Norfolk when deemed healthy.
