Dylan Bundy was scratched from Saturday's start against the Dodgers due to a cut on his finger.
Manager Joe Maddon says that Bundy would've started had it been a potential postseason situation but the team didn't want to force the issue. The 27-year-old finally had a breakout season in his first year with the Angels, putting up a 3.29 ERA with 72 strikeouts in 65 2/3 innings pitched.
After being hammered in his previous outing vs. Arizona, Angels ace Dylan Bundy bounced back on Monday, pitching five innings and scattering three earned runs on five hits and two walks while striking out three batters in a win over Texas.
Bundy allowed one run in each of the first three innings, including a solo home run to Isiah Kiner-Falefa in the opening frame. However, he was able to limit the damage thereafter and improves to 6-3 on the season. While Monday wasn’t his sharpest performance of the season, 2020 nonetheless has been a breakout year for the former top Orioles prospect as he now boasts a 3.29 ERA. Bundy’s final start of the season will be a very tough challenge on Sunday at the Dodgers.
Angels ace Dylan Bundy turned in his worst start of the season on Wednesday night, giving up six runs (five earned) on six hits (all singles) and two walks in only 2.2 innings in a losing effort against the Diamondbacks. He added two strikeouts.
Much like fantasy aces Jacob deGrom and Jack Flaherty this week, Bundy sure picked an inopportune time to have his worst outing of the year as many fantasy owners are battling in playoff matchups at this juncture. Despite not giving up any extra-base hits, Bundy could not make it out of the third inning tonight and was pulled after only 63 pitches. Bundy’s ERA jumped from 2.48 to 3.12 after tonight’s performance. Bundy should bounce back in a friendly matchup at home vs. the Rangers on Monday.
Angels ace Dylan Bundy was terrific on Wednesday night as he recorded a season-high 12 strikeouts while limiting the Rangers to two runs, four hits, and one walk over 7.1 innings of work in a 6-2 victory.
Bundy improves to 5-2 while lowering his season ERA to 2.48 and WHIP to 0.91. Bundy also notched his third double-digit strikeout performance of the season. Bundy has been one of the breakout pitchers of 2020 and has proven to be an incredible draft-day value.
Dylan Bundy stayed sharp on Friday against Houston, spinning seven innings of two-run ball while striking out eight.
Bundy was saddled with a no-decision and allowed six hits and one walk in the contest. The former Oriole had a clunker back in the middle of August but has otherwise been outstanding this summer. The 27-year-old ace draws the light-hitting Rangers next time out.
