A good diagnosis from Dr. James Andrews provides hope, but the Orioles still need to hope Dylan Bundy can pitch this year.

The pressure on prospects in Major League Baseball to perform puts every little thing they do under such an intense microscope that if they aren't living up to their billing right out of the gate, some will be ready to give up on them. 

One month into the minor league season isn't enough to give a proper judgement of where players are in their development, but we can see some things they have to start working on changing for the future. 

Baseball is a humbling game. Even the best players will fail a lot more than succeed. The key is to make sure the successes come at the expense of a prolonged slump. The superstars are able to do that, while the pretenders get weeded out in the minors.
