SARASOTA, Fla. – Dylan Bundy gets to throw from 150 feet again on Sunday.

“It feels good to throw it. It doesn’t hurt. I guess it’s good,” Bundy said.

Bundy, who underwent Tommy John surgery nearly eight months ago has to hold himself back.

“I want to throw harder, but I know I’m not supposed to. They say right now it’s a touchy stage because people feel really good about their arm, and they throw harder, but if they keep at 75 percent, they should be fine,” Bundy said.

Bundy should soon progress to 180 feet, but he doesn’t know when. It could possibly be within the next week to 10 days, he said.

The Orioles are hoping he can be ready to pitch in May or June.
