Dylan Bundy is on schedule to begin a Minor League assignment in May, probably with Class A Advanced Frederick.
As previously reported here at Fantasy Alarm, Bundy has already begun throwing from 120 feet with the next step being throwing off a mound in March, if everything goes well. Orioles manager Buck Showalter said, "I really like the way his rehab is going." So, so far so good and if Bundy does not suffer any setbacks and his rehab outings go well he could possibly be ready for a call up sometime in the month of June.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Ravens announce extension for cornerback Jimmy Smith.
The deal is said to give him an average of just under $10 million per year. Smith was heading into the final year of his rookie contract – a reported $6.9 million option that the team picked up before last season. Considering his level of play and contributions on defense, it would have been quite the bargain but probably would have left a bad taste in the cornerback's mouth. He should be all smiles though heading into camp now with a new deal. Analysis: Howard Bender
