According to MLB Trade Rumors, Bundy is currently ranked as the tenth-most valuable free agent, and he is the fourth-most valuable starting pitcher behind Trevor Bauer (No.1) Clayton Kershaw (No.2) and Noah Syndergaard (No.3)

Bauer would become a free agent in 2022 if he opts out of his current deal with the Dodgers.

Angels: Dylan Bundy ranks among big-name starting pitchers.

While these rankings are based on performances of the past and future projections, the current statistics could give Bundy a case as the second-most valuable free agent pitcher right now, even though his career numbers are not as good.

2021 Statistics:

  • Dyaln Bundy (3 starts): 19 IP 7 ER 5 BB 22 K (1.503 WHIP) (3.67 FIP)
  • Trevor Bauer (3 starts): 20 IP 6 ER 5 BB 29 K (0.600 WHIP) (3.24 FIP)
  • Clayton Kershaw (3 starts): 18.2 IP 6 ER 1 BB 16 K (1.071 WHIP) (1.59 FIP)
  • Noah Syndergaard Has Not Pitched–Tommy John Surgery

It’s taken longer than most anticipated for a former fourth-overall pick, but Bundy has provided legitimate reasons to believe he has turned the corner for good in his career.
