Minnesota Twins Add To Their Rotation

The Minnesota Twins have signed pitcher Dylan Bundy to a one-year, $4 million contract. It also comes with an $11 million club option for 2023 and a $1 million buyout.

The 2021 season was an especially hard one for Bundy. In 23 games with the Angels, he had a 2-9 record, 6.06 ERA and 84 strikeouts. This came after a fantastic season in 2020 for the 29-year-old starter. He sported a 6-3 record and 3.29 ERA in 11 games with LA. Therefore, one has to wonder if he could be a bounce back candidate for 2022.

Over his career, Bundy showed great determination as soon as it began. After making his debut in 2012 with the Baltimore Orioles, he did not return to the team until the 2016 season due to injuries. Now, he has 161 career games under his belt, where he sports a 46-57 record, 4.72 ERA and 758 strikeouts.

With Minnesota, he will be looking to get back on track. Given the fact that he was so solid just a year ago, he certainly has the potential to. Overall, this is a low-risk, potential high-reward kind of signing for the Twins, so there isn't too much to complain about.
