Aberdeen IronBirds manager Matt Merullo sat down before his news conference at the team's media day Tuesday, cellphone in hand and eyes locked on the screen. Merullo, who is entering his second season as the manager of the Orioles' short-season Single-A affiliate, joked about what he did wrong at the beginning of last year's news conference: He forgot to put his phone on silent, and it went off as he as was talking. But what he did get right last year is something no Aberdeen manager had been able to do in the club's first 11 years.

At the Aberdeen IronBirds' media day Tuesday, manager Matt Merullo confirmed that Orioles pitching prospect Dylan Bundy will make his first rehab start with the short-season Single-A club Sunday on the road against the Hudson Valley Renegades.  Merullo said the goal is to get Bundy, the Orioles' first-round draft pick in 2011, two starts with Aberdeen. The right-hander, who has been pitching in extended spring training after undergoing Tommy John surgery last June, will also start June 21 when the IronBirds return home to face the Brooklyn Cyclones at Ripken Stadium, Merullo said.  "Sunday will be his first start," Merullo said.

Finally away from the Gulf Coast League's hot and humid midday games in Florida, Orioles first-round draft pick Hunter Harvey took to the mound for the first time in the state where he hopes to make his pro career. And before an announced 5,485 - including his parents and some Orioles officials - at Ripken Stadium to see Harvey in his debut for short-season Single-A Aberdeen, the right-hander thrived. With his fastball at 93 and 94 mph while mixing in a high-70s curveball and occasional changeup, Harvey allowed one unearned run on four hits and one walk in 41/3 innings while striking out five.

At a preseason news conference Thursday at Ripken Stadium, first-year Aberdeen IronBirds manager Matt Merullo said the time will come when fans become frustrated with him. And that's because a time will inevitably come when one of his players on the Orioles' short season Single-A squad will be struggling. And that will be the time Merullo lets him play. "I'm gonna give guys chances to pull themselves out of slumps and pull themselves out of tough times," said Merullo, a 48-year-old former big league catcher who rendered reporters solemn and observant in this instance.
