Orioles Prospect Profile #5: Bobby Bundy

Can Bundy produce in Double-A Bowie, as well as he did in Single-A Frederick last year?

Bobby Bundy

Position: RHP

Height: 6'2”

Weight: 215 lbs

Born 1/13/1990

Throws: Right

Bats: Right

Background:

The Orioles eighth round selection in the 2008 draft, Bundy hails from Sperry High School in Oklahoma.

Bundy was an original first round talent, but fell due to a torn ACL he suffered during his senior year. He signed for $600,000 and still is considered one of the higher level prospects for the Orioles in 2012.

Scouting Report:

Considered a power pitcher, Bundy also has a good build and will continue to add strength as he continues to mature.

The Orioles see Bundy as a guy who could throw 200+ innings in the rotation, or a pitcher that can serve as a middle reliever.

In terms of mechanics, Bundy touts a fastball that sits in the 91-94 mph range. The fastball shows good life and does have a sinking motion. He also throws a changeup that sits in the 82-85 range; changeup still needs some fine tuning, but can be a plus pitch. The curveball is considered his out pitch as its above average and sits in the 75-79 mph range. The key is to find consistency with his location.

Health Record

Bundy suffered a torn ACL in his senior year in high school that dropped him to the eighth round.

Future

The future looks bright for the 22-year-old. He struggled in his time with the Baysox late in the season, but has the potential to make adjustments and improve himself within the organization. At peak he is a number three starter at the major league level.

As long as he stays healthy and pitches well, expect Bundy to reach Camden Yards by 2013.
