Dylan Bundy rumors: Orioles may make top prospect available

Denny Medley-US PRESSWIRE

The Orioles may be willing to trade top-prospect Dylan Bundy if the right deal arises before the trade deadline according to a report from Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports.

In any case, the Orioles’ aggression is notable. Sources say the team is even willing to move one of its top prospects, right-hander Dylan Bundy, for the right return.
Bundy, 20, underwent Tommy John surgery last month, but the success rate of pitchers recovering from the operation is quite good. The Chicago Cubs acquired right-hander Arodys Vizcaino from the Atlanta Braves last season just four months after he had the surgery. Vizcaino, 22, was the centerpiece of the package that the Cubs acquired for left-hander Paul Maholm and outfielder Reed Johnson.

The Orioles believe that Bundy will make a strong return from Tommy John surgery in his age 21 season and entertaining discussions for their top prospect would hurt his value. Bundy, however, may be Baltimore's top trade asset at the deadline as Kevin Gausman, Jonathan Schoop and Eduardo Rodriguez are not going anywhere anytime soon.

What the Orioles need to decide is if they are still building towards even greater success in the future or are playing for now.
