Mets' Dylan Bundy: Works two-inning sim game
Bundy threw a two-inning simulated game Tuesday, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.
Bundy is in the process of getting stretched out after just landing a minor-league contract from the Mets this past Saturday. He should be able to slide into the rotation at Triple-A Syracuse sometime in mid-to-late April and will function as organizational starting depth for New York in 2023.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Dylan Bundy: Signs minors deal with Mets
Bundy signed a minor-league contract with the Mets on Saturday, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.
Bundy showed promise with a 3.29 ERA in the shortened 2020 season but followed that up with a 6.06 ERA in 2021 and a 4.89 ERA in 2022, leaving him stuck without a big-league offer. His average fastball velocity dipped to 89.2 mph last season while his strikeout rate fell to 15.8 percent, so he won't be an exciting fantasy option even if injuries ahead of him open up a rotation spot....

Dylan Bundy: Team declines option
The Twins made Bundy a free agent by declining his 2023 option Monday, Aaron Gleeman of The Athletic reports.
An $11 million option was excessive for the righty, who posted a 4.89 ERA in 140 innings this season and struggles to miss bats with his low-velocity stuff. Bundy should get another chance to vie for an MLB roster spot somewhere next spring, but he'll likely begin the 2023 season as nothing more than a fifth or sixth starter.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Dylan Bundy: Gives up two runs in no-decision
Bundy gave up two earned runs on five hits and no walks while striking out three over five innings in a 3-2 loss to the Tigers on Saturday. He did not factor into the decision.
Bundy made his team-leading 29th start and looked good outside of a home run to Eric Haase. However, he suffered from some poor outfield defense by Matt Wallner in the first inning, which led to an earned run. The performance is a positive note on which to end the season for Bundy, who struggled immensely in September with a 7.06 ERA as the Twins fell out of playoff contention. He finishes the season with an ERA of 4.89, a WHIP of 1.28 and a Baseball-Reference WAR of -0.3.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Dylan Bundy: Charged with loss Sunday
Bundy (8-8) allowed five runs (four earned) on seven hits and two walks while striking out two in 3.1 innings to take the loss during Sunday's game against the Angels.
Bundy hasn't been particularly effective recently, and Sunday's start marked his fourth consecutive outing in which he's failed to last at least five innings. Although he's been charged with just two losses across that span, he's posted a 9.18 ERA in 16.2 innings over those four starts. The right-hander tentatively lines up to make his next start on the road against Detroit on Saturday.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Dylan Bundy: Surrenders pair of homers
Bundy allowed four runs on four hits and a walk while striking out two over 4.2 innings in a no-decision versus the Royals on Tuesday.
Bundy gave up a two-run home run to MJ Melendez in the third inning and a solo shot to Hunter Dozier in the fifth. After continued trouble in the fifth, Bundy exited with two outs and Griffin Jax allowed an inherited runner to score, tacking a fourth run onto the starter's line. Bundy has completed five innings only once in his last five starts, though he's gone 1-1 with three no-decisions in that span. The veteran right-hander has a 4.78 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 89:26 K:BB through 131.2 innings across 27 starts this year. He's projected for a home start versus the Angels this weekend.... See More ...

Twins' Dylan Bundy: Pulled after four innings
Bundy did not factor in the decision against Kansas City on Thursday, pitching four innings and allowing two runs on four hits and no walks while striking out two batters.
Bundy gave up a run in the second and another in the fourth, but he finished the latter frame holding a 3-2 lead. Manager Rocco Baldelli opted not to let him go out for the fifth, preventing Bundy from qualifying for the win. The veteran hurler had thrown only 60 pitches at the time of his departure, so Baldelli may have simply been avoiding having Bundy go through the order for the third time. This was Bundy's shortest start since Aug. 6.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Dylan Bundy: Lit up for seven runs
Bundy (8-7) gave up seven earned runs on 12 hits and no walks while striking out one over 4.2 innings to take the loss in a 7-6 defeat against the Guardians on Friday.
Bundy's start got off on the wrong foot, as two runners quickly reached base on a couple of cheap infield singles. The Guardians made Bundy pay by cashing them in as part of a big four-run first inning. Ultimately, Bundy gave up three home runs on 94 pitches, including two off the bat of Oscar Gonzalez. Bundy's ERA rose to 4.68 with the appearance. He tossed five scoreless innings his last time out against the White Sox and can be an effective streamer when matched up against the right opposition, but he didn't have what it takes in this intense high-stakes divisional contest. He is expected to take the bump next week against the Royals.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Dylan Bundy: Records win with scoreless outing
Bundy (8-6) earned the win Sunday against the White Sox, striking out four over five scoreless innings. He surrendered two hits and one walk.
Bundy was effective Sunday, as he allowed just three White Sox batters to reach base all afternoon, a relief after allowing 10 batters to reach base over 4.2 innings in his prior start. The scoreless outing was Bundy's fifth on the season and second in his last five starts. He will carry a 4.34 ERA into his next start.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Dylan Bundy: Turns in lackluster performance
Bundy allowed two runs on nine hits and a walk over 4.2 innings against the Red Sox on Monday. He struck out three and did not factor in the decision.
Bundy would've earned his eighth win if he would've been able to finish the fifth frame. He gave up an RBI double to Alex Verdugo in the third inning followed by another RBI double to Reese McGuire in the fourth. Bundy is now sporting a 4.53 ERA with an 80:24 K:BB through 23 starts and he's given up two or fewer runs in five straight outings, though he's failed to complete six innings in any of them. The 29-year-old is lined up for a road start against the White Sox this weekend.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Dylan Bundy: Takes loss Wednesday
Bundy (7-6) was handed the loss by Houston on Wednesday. He pitched five innings and allowed two runs on three hits and one walk without notching a strikeout.
Bundy gave up a home run to Jose Altuve on his first pitch of the contest, but he settled down from there and limited the Astros to just one additional run over the remainder of his outing. The veteran right-hander induced only one swinging strike and failed to fan a single batter, yet he kept Minnesota in the game and could have had a better fate if not for the continued excellence of opposing starter Framber Valdez. Bundy has quietly pitched well in August, allowing just five runs and 12 hits over 19.1 innings despite earning only one win.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Dylan Bundy: Picks up seventh win
Bundy (7-5) gave up one earned run on two hits and a walk while striking out two over 5.1 innings to earn the win in a 2-1 victory over the Rangers on Friday.
Bundy found success at home against the Rangers by leaning heavily on his off-speed offerings and pitching to contact. Only 28 of the 71 pitches he threw were fastballs. Bundy also benefited from errorless defensive support which helped him to notch his seventh win in 21 starts this season despite not having gone six innings in a start since June 24. The 29-year-old right-hander has a 4.60 ERA and 1.23 WHIP this season. Bundy is tentatively expected to make his next start at Houston.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Dylan Bundy: Throws five scoreless innings
Bundy allowed two hits, a walk and a hit batsman while striking out one across five scoreless inning in a no-decision versus the Angels on Saturday.
Bundy again saw a limited pitch count, throwing 46 of 65 pitches for strikes. It's the second start in a row he's been limited to 65 pitches, though he was sharp in his first start against the Angels since leaving the team as a free agent last December. The right-hander has exceeded five innings just once in his last eight outings -- that limited workload makes it tough for him to pick up many wins. He has a 4.76 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 75:21 K:BB through 98.1 innings across 20 starts this season. Bundy is projected for a home start versus the Rangers next week.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Dylan Bundy: Yields two runs in no-decision
Bundy allowed two runs on five hits and a walk with six strikeouts in four innings in a no-decision versus the Blue Jays on Saturday.
It was an unusually short start for Bundy (65 pitches, 45 strikes), with the only blemish on his line a two-run home run to Bo Bichette. It doesn't sound like Bundy had any issues, though it may be part of workload management -- his 93.1 innings this season is his highest total in three years. He's logged a 5.01 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 74:20 K:BB through 19 starts, and he's projected for a road start versus his former team, the Angels, next weekend.... See More ... See Less
