    Orioles Rush Other Star Prospect

    Dylan Bundy has been promoted to the Orioles just in time for the playoff race. The 19 year old, considered unanimously to be at least baseball's #2 prospect, had been pitching in AA prior to the call-up. Do you like the Orioles all-out approach or the conservative method displayed by the Nationals?

    If he can play - let him play. Coach knows how to use a young player like that and won't put him in anything he cant handle. Great way to let your younger players feel that playoff intensity as well. Great for the future and possibly the present if he handles the pressure. Win Win

    He's only up because of the 18 inning game last night. They are hoping not to have to use him.

    They'll use him. He's a dynamite pitcher who has put up gaudy numbers without his best pitch. He dominated the high-school ranks with a cut fastball as his out pitch. This year the O's asked him to shelve it to work on his off speed pitches and his 4-seamer. If they let him use it in the big leagues he could be a handy bullpen piece come playoff time. Similar to what the Rays did with David Price a few years back... It also won't hurt him to get a taste of a pennant race

    How is this rushing? He hasn't been challenged at any level thus far. This gives him a chance to be challenged this year. Then he goes to AA/AAA and is allowed the whole arsenal next year and likely moves to the rotation full time sometime next summer. He was considered as MLB ready as the college pitchers in his own draft class.

    Good for the O's to have that kind of player. If he can swim with the big fish why keep him in a pond?

    He's barely pitched, and will pitch in relief probably. I don't get how there could be any concern at all. Frankly, he should have been up earlier.
    Lighten up Francis....
