Dylan Bundy tells Pirates, Royals not to draft him

http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/news;_ylt=Ak7itvG54LSl70KH6Ttfr9gRvLYF?slug=jp-passan_baseball_draft_bundy_bauer_long_toss_debate_051911

Bundy has reportedly told the Pirates and Royals not to draft him because he does not want his long toss program altered.

Seattle, Arizona, and Washington are all advocates of long toss.

This is a pretty interesting development IMO, and I am curious to see thoughts on this. Should the Pirates and Royals become more flexible on pitcher development? What are the real concerns with long toss? Is there evidence to support the concerns?

Another part I don't quite understand is that Royals pitchers Mike Montgomery and John Lamb both have testimonials on Jaeger's long toss website. I know the Royals and Montgomery have butted heads in the past about his long toss, so I am not sure if they have relented, if he does it in the offseason, or if he has abandoned it.

FYI Trevor Bauer is also a noted long tosser.
