Dylan Bundy News
The Minnesota Twins declined starting pitcher Dylan Bundy's $11 million club option Monday, per MLB's Do-Hyoung Park. The option included a $1 million buyout. The 29-year-old turned in some strong starts in 2022 but ended the season with a disappointing 8-8 record, 4.89 ERA, 1.28 WHIP, and 15.8% strikeout rate in 29 starts and 140 innings pitched. The former prospect has never lived up to expectations, serving as a point of frustration for fantasy managers. Now a free agent, Bundy will look for a new opportunity with a team in need of rotation help.
The Minnesota Twins reinstated starting pitcher Dylan Bundy from the COVID-19 injured list on Tuesday and designated right-hander Jharel Cotton for assignment in a corresponding move. Bundy has missed the team's last 10 games since going on the COVID list on May 6. In his five starts this year, the right-hander has gone 3-2 with a 5.76 ERA with five walks and 22 strikeouts in 25 innings pitched. Bundy will make the start in his return against the Oakland Athletics on Tuesday, and because he'll likely be on a limited pitch count due to the length of his absence, fantasy managers should look for better streaming options.
Minnesota Twins right-hander Dylan Bundy (illness) is expected to start for his team against the Oakland A's on Tuesday. Bundy has been on the injured list since he came down with COVID-19 early in May. The veteran right-hander draws a plus assignment against Oakland on Tuesday, but he may not work very deep into the contest in his first game back. Bundy has compiled a 3-2 record, 5.76 ERA, 1.32 WHIP, and 22 strikeouts over 25 innings of work in 2022.
Entering the 2020 season, there was plenty of unknown regarding Bundy, as he was moving from Baltimore to Anaheim. Those who believed that the change would be a boon for him profited handsomely, as Bundy was being drafted as 79th pitcher and 245th overall player. He finished the season as the 20th best pitcher, as the strikeout rate increased while the walk and home run rates plummeted. Some of the changes can be attributed to the new division and ballparks, but Bundy also tweaked his repertoire, throwing fewer fastballs and more offspeed pitches. Coming into the 2021 season, Bundy's ADP is now 110 overall and the 40th pitcher off the board. Some regression could be in order, as the BABIP was .272 last season but a strikeout rate around 25% with a walk rate around 7% should be viable with 170 plus innings pitched. The RotoBaller rankings have Bundy as the 30th pitcher, so you're still getting a discount, although not as much as last year.
