Dylan Bundy feeling better after sitting Sunday with groin injury

SARASOTA, Fla. --

Orioles

top pitching prospect

Dylan Bundy

, who missed his last scheduled spring outing Sunday after tweaking his groin, was slated to resume throwing Tuesday by participating in the team’s biomechanical testing.

Bundy said he felt the tweak while running sprints on Friday and said he could have pitched Sunday, but the team wanted to push him back as a precaution.

“I was kind of being stubborn and I wanted to run more, so it’s just little tweak, nothing big,” Bundy said. “I really wasn’t worried about it. They wanted to hold me back now instead of later during

spring training

.”
