SARASOTA, Fla. -- Right-hander Dylan Bundy was scheduled to take a work day on Tuesday, participating in the biomechanical testing visiting Orioles camp, and said the groin issue that kept him out of Sunday's game was minor.
"It's good, I'm going to throw a bullpen today," said Bundy, who was pushed back for precautionary reasons after dealing with a groin spasm on Friday.
"It wasn't [from] throwing. It was sprints. I was kind of being stubborn, I wanted to run more. So it was just a little tweak, nothing big. I wasn't really worried about it. But they wanted to hold me back now instead of later in Spring Training."
The organization's top pitching prospect, Bundy last pitched on Feb. 27, and has appeared in two games, throwing three scoreless innings.
