Dylan Bundy's return from 2013 Tommy John surgery has been slow, showing a decline in stuff and command when he came back last summer just prior to the one-year anniversary of his operation. But Bundy's fastball has been creeping up in recent starts, and in his outing Thursday night at Double-A Trenton, he had three pitches working and something around average command of all of them.

Bundy has hit 97 mph this year but was 92-95 on Thursday night for Bowie, throwing four innings with five strikeouts and no walks against a Trenton lineup loaded with former high draft picks and other big-bonus players.
