MLB Draft Tracker: Baltimore Orioles Select Dylan Bundy, RHP, Owasso (OK) High School

The 2011 MLB Draft continued with the Baltimore Orioles selecting Dylan Bundy with the fourth pick. Bundy, out of Owasso (OK) High School, is the top-rated high school prospect in this year's draft.

Bundy is an elite talent. At just age 18, this 6'1, 195 pound prospect has already hit 100 mph on the radar gun. While committed to Texas, Bundy will likely sign with any MLB team that selects him in the first 10-15 picks of the draft.

Aside from an overpowering fastball, Bundy also has a hard breaking ball and a good delivery - in spite of the fact that he's short for a pitcher, he is well balanced and rarely, if ever, appears to be out of control on the mound.

At this point, it's very difficult to see a downside to this tremendous pitcher. From what the scouts are saying, you get what you expect when you draft Bundy, but he won't develop too much more based on his frame. - link to this: http://www.prospectwire.com/pw/article.php?id=217

Still, scouts are very enthusiastic about this player, and you can't blame them. His ability is unmatched in his age group.

The Kansas City Royals are up next with the fifth pick in the 2011 MLB Draft.
