Both Baltimore Orioles SPs Dylan Bundy (elbow) and Johan Santana (shoulder) threw off a mound Wednesday, March 19. Santana tossed 25 pitches, and he's eyeing working off a half-mound as his next step. Bundy threw off the mound for the first time Wednesday and is targeting March 31 for his first regular bullpen. Bundy is throwing at around 80 percent intensity.
Fantasy Tip: Bundy is aiming to return to the bigs as quickly as possible, but that may not be until sometime this summer, and the O's surely won't rush him back. When Bundy returns, he should be an immediate addition to all fantasy rosters. Santana doesn't elicit much excitement these days.

Baltimore Orioles SP Johan Santana said he's not ready to pitch in the majors yet, and the team is setting a target date of June 1 for his arrival. The team sees him as a starter that can pitch out of the bullpen if needed. He hasn't pitched in relief since 2003, however.
Fantasy Tip: Given his age and extensive injury history, Santana is unlikely to produce valuable fantasy stats this year. If he does, it'll probably be in a short-term window for desperate AL-only owners.
