Bundy tosses five scoreless in third rehab start

BALTIMORE -- Orioles pitching prospect Dylan Bundy made his third rehabilitation start Friday with short-season Class A Aberdeen. He pitched five scoreless innings, giving up three hits, walking a pair and posting seven strikeouts.

The start came one year to the day after Bundy, 20, underwent Tommy John elbow ligament reconstruction surgery.

Bundy, Baltimore's first-round Draft pick (fourth overall) in the 2011 First-Year Player Draft, had been dominant in his first two rehab appearances. Bundy allowed seven hits and one run in 10 innings while striking out 15 and walking one.

Orioles executive vice president of baseball operations Dan Duquette said earlier this week that Bundy -- ranked by MLB.com as the O's top prospect -- could join Double-A Bowie following his third appearance at Aberdeen.
