Orioles shut down top prospect Dylan Bundy

BALTIMORE –- Dylan Bundy, who is shut down with shoulder tendinitis, will not be throwing any time soon, manager Buck Showalter said.

Bundy, the Orioles’ No. 1 pick in 2011 and the fourth overall choice, was 0-3 with a 3.68 ERA in eight starts for Bowie when he was forced to stop pitching last month.

“Dylan, throwing again is not imminent,” Showalter said.

Showalter said surgery on Bundy’s shoulder has not been discussed. Bundy underwent Tommy John surgery in June 2013.

When asked if Bundy would pitch again this year, Showalter responded: “Is [Arizona] Fall League this year? He’s just kind of shut down for the near future, for a while, kind of let everything calm down, see where we are. Depending on how you look at it, it’s probably as good a news as you can expect….He won’t be throwing for a little while. We’ll see how long that is.”

Hunter Harvey, the team’s top pick in 2013, who has yet to pitch this season due to a flexor mass strain in his right forearm, will soon begin a throwing program.

Matt Hobgood, the team’s No. 1 pick in 2009, will have surgery on his right shoulder. He had pitched in six games at Bowie before being hurt.

NOTES: Bowie right-hander Elih Villanueva and Frederick right-hander David Hess have been named Pitcher of the Week in the Bowie and Carolina Leagues respectively.

Orioles Roundup: O's acquire Keon Broxton from Mets

The Orioles made a flurry of moves before falling to the Yankees 7-5 Wednesday night.

Here is your latest news on Baltimore and New York:

Player Notes:

ORIOLES:

Baltimore acquired OF Keon Broxton from the Mets for international signing bonus slots. Broxton hit .143 in 34 games with New York this season before he was designated for assignment last week. The Orioles designated RHP Yefry Rodriguez for assignment to make room on the 40-man roster for Broxton. 

The Orioles transferred RHP Alex Cobb from the 10-day IL to the 60-day IL, meaning he won't be back until late June at the earliest. Cobb has been out since April 27 with a lumbar strain. Baltimore also claimed RHP Chandler Shepherd off waivers for the Cubs and optioned him to Triple-A Norfolk. 

YANKEES:

Giancarlo Stanton has been pulled away from his rehab assignment with High-A Tampa and placed back on the 10-day injured list with left calf tightness. Per manager Aaron Boone, Stanton will be shut down for the next 7-10 days. 

Boone also told reporters Zach Britton was unavailable for Wednesday's game against his former team, and CC Sabathia could miss his next start due to knee trouble.
