BALTIMORE – Dylan Bundy visited team orthopedist Dr. John Wilckens on Tuesday. Manager Buck Showalter said the 20-year-old right-hander, who hasn’t pitched this season because of forearm tightness, will have a second opinion with an influential orthopedist.

“I would assume he’s probably on his way to follow up with Dr. [James] Andrews,” Showalter said.

Andrews administered a Platelet Rich Plasma injection to Bundy on April 29 in Gulf Breeze, Fla. He was told to rest for six weeks then on June 10 was allowed to begin throwing. All went smoothly for the first two weeks, but on Monday, Bundy felt tightness when throwing from 120 feet.

“They’re still in the process of putting everything together. Dr. Wilckens, I’m sure, will tell Dr. Andrews, what he thinks, and he’ll look at it, and see what he thinks, and we’ll go from there,” Showalter said.

“There’s the potential for some good things, the potential for some things where we’re going to have to continue to work at.”
