Orioles willing to move Dylan Bundy

As the trade market begins to heat up with 48 hours to go, Fox Sports’ Ken Rosenthal is reporting that the Orioles will move top prospect Dylan Bundy in the right deal.

Bundy, 20, was generally regarded as one of the three best prospects in baseball prior to the season.  He was drafted fourth overall in 2011 out of high school and rocketed through the minors last year. Bundy made his major league debut with the Orioles last September.

While the Mets seemingly have a ton of right handed pitching, Bundy could be a superstar and a buy low candidate after undergoing Tommy John surgery a few months ago.

Guys who undergo Tommy John usually come back stronger if they don’t rush their rehab process.

I have idea what major league talent the Mets could give up for the contending Orioles but this is certainty a player to keep an eye on during the next 48 hours.

    Steve – This is a tricky and therefore, in my opinion, a high risk move. The old addage is a team can never have enough pitching but the Mets need more than pitching and the pitching they already have in the rotation and in the minors makes hitting and BP their #1 & #2 problems. If the Mets trade Marlon Byrd or Bobby Parnell they will again get the short end of the stick for Byrd because they will then probably lose 100 games this year and if Parnell goes they don’t have a closer waiting in the wings ready to go. In fact, they need a cross over set up man to compliment Parnell. I like Familia as a set up man propect and if he progesses into a closer then Parnell can be traded if the Mets then have a set up man waiting in the wings. For now, keep them both. Develop Mejia into a starter, be patient with Jon Niese, wait on Wheeler to continue to develop, Harvey is go to go and hopefully Montero will be ready sooner than we hope he will be. That makes Hefner and Gee expendable. Torres will also be gone or be the Mets long man if they decide to keep him. Mike

      This article was simply to acknowledge one of if not the best starting pitching prospect in baseball is available for the right bat.

      The mets don’t have the “right bat” (except David wright) and like the orioles will be shopping pitching prospects this offseason to find a bat.

      The mets and orioles have too similar needs to be trade partners, another bat and bullpen help.

      As for Parnell and Byrd. The Mets will only trade Bobby Parnell is if they get a top prospect. A “Wheeler” type prospect. We talked about castellanos a few weeks ago, if you can get that type of bat it’s a no brainer but that’s highly unlikely which is why Parnell stays.
      Byrd isn’t going to get traded just to be traded. If byrd gets traded it has to be for someone significant who can help next year. With so many other outfielders still available like pence and rios why overpay for Byrd?
      Teams won’t and he stays here.
      I don’t think this is a 100 loss team either way in today’s game that is very hard to do the Astros, marlins and white sox are the only three teams that seem like 100 loss teams.

      Again I don’t think they make a move but deadline is Wednesday at 4 well see. Thanks for the comment Mike!
