Baltimore Orioles: Return on the Dylan Bundy trade
The Baltimore Orioles received four minor league prospects in return for starter Dylan Bundy, who was traded to Anaheim. All four are pitchers: Kyle Bradish, Zach Peek, Kyle Brnovich, and Isaac Mattson (who I mentioned yesterday. All four are right handers.
