Dylan Bundy; move him up!

This O’s fan can’t wait to see Bundy (right handed starter) in the majors but the kid is only 19 so somebody please slow me down.  Bundy was drafted straight out of Owasso High School in Oklahoma, and is in his first year of professional ball playing at low Class A Delmarva.  Think he has more success against righties than lefties?  Not the case.  Check out these stats from his first four starts:  13 innings pitched, 40 batters faced, 0 hits, 0 runs, 21 strikeouts, one walk.  OMG!  Is it too early to get excited?  On a selfish note, the Orioles need to promote him asap to high Class A Frederick, which is 30 minutes from my house because I’d be there every time he pitched.  Can’t imagine he’d last in A ball too long and should probably play/end the year in AA Bowie.   My guess is he would need two full seasons in the minors and with early indications of the Oriole’s pitching staff coming alive this year, Charm City would be in for a treat!  I might just need to make my way down to the eastern shore to check this out.
