O’s select Dylan Bundy with the 4th Overall Pick
With the 4th overall pick in the 2011 MLB Draft, the O’s have selected HS P Dylan Bundy.
I personally would have preferred Anthony Rendon, but Bundy is extremely highly regarded in his own right. Obviously the O’s were scared off by the received medical reports on Rendon. Bundy is considered the most advanced HS arm in the draft, but you would figure he is still a minimum of 3 years away from touching the Orioles Major League roster. Due to that, there will always be questions if Bundy was the right selection over the available College arms.
The selection of Bundy has to be exciting for the Joe Jordan and the O’s organization. They select a player whose family they are already very familiar with, and have already conducted negotiations with previously.
