Bundy allowed one earned run on five hits and one walk while striking out six across 5.2 innings Wednesday against the Tigers. He did not factor into the decision. Bundy kept the Tigers lineup in check, with the only damage coming on a solo home run by Harold Castro. He racked up 14 swinging strikes on 85 total pitches and struck out at least six batters for the third time in seven starts this season. Since returning from the COVID-19-related injured list, Bundy has allowed only one earned run across 8.2 innings. Overall, he has a 4.54 ERA and 31:8 K:BB across 33.2 frames.
Bundy struck out three, walked two and allowed two hits in three shutout innings in a 5-2 loss Tuesday in Oakland. He did not factor into the decision. Bundy was effective but inefficient in his first outing in nearly two weeks, needing 54 pitches to complete the three frames. It was expected that he would have a limited pitch count in his first appearance following a stint on the COVID-19 injured list. While his 5.14 ERA leaves something to be desired, his 25:7 K:BB is solid and he's allowed one run or fewer in four of six starts. His next start will likely be early next week against Detroit.

However, manager Rocco Baldelli noted Monday that Bundy would be on a pitch count upon his return, though the skipper neglected to disclose how long the right-hander will be able to work.

Bundy cleared COVID-19 protocols Tuesday but has yet to be activated off the injured list, Megan Ryan of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
