Minor Leaguer Ohlman Suspended; Dylan Bundy Dominates Again

Looks like an O's minor leaguer has been suspended for drug use...

From the Orioles: The Office of the Commissioner of Baseball announced today that Baltimore Orioles Minor League catcher Michael Ohlman has received a 50-game suspension after a second violation of the Minor League Drug Prevention and Treatment Program for a drug of abuse.

The suspension of Ohlman, who is currently on the roster of the Single-A Delmarva Shorebirds, will be effective immediately.

The Baltimore SunBaltimore Sun and Roch's blogRoch's blog has more on the news. Ohlman was not suspended for steroids.

Not sure why any player would want to risk their career or development to use drugs; however, temptation is a hard thing to beat. I'm sure Ohlman is sorry for everything, and he'll learn a lesson in a hard way from this.

Finally, Dylan Bundy has dominated in yet another minor league start -- this time at home for Delmarva.

From MASN Sports, Steve Melewski's blog: OriolesOrioles top pitching prospect Dylan Bundy just completed his third outing as a pro and he has now pitched the equivalent of a nine-inning no-hitter over his three games for the Single-A Delmarva Shorebirds.

In the first inning tonight versus Hagerstown, the 19-year-old right-hander got a strikeout, followed by a pair of ground outs. In the second inning he got a fly out and then a pair of strikeouts. In the third he retired the first two hitters on ground outs before allowing a two-out walk before getting an inning-ending ground out.

Bundy retired the first 26 batters he faced as a pro before allowing a two-out walk in the third inning tonight.

Well, I don't think Bundy will be with Delmarva for too long. As it is, it may look like Bundy too good for the level of ball that he is in.
