Brady Singer News
The Kansas City Royals placed starting pitcher Brady Singer (arm) on the 10-day injured list on Wednesday. The 25-year-old right-hander is dealing with right arm inflammation. The injury came up during his start against the Cleveland Indians on Tuesday. He wasn't able to make it out of the first inning in the start as he felt what he described as a "grab" in his upper arm. Singer is officially done for the 2021 season. He made 27 starts this year and went 5-10 with a 4.91 ERA, a 1.55 WHIP and a 22.4% strikeout rate. The team called up pitcher Tyler Zuber from Triple-A to fill his roster spot.
Kansas City Royals starting pitcher Brady Singer (arm) was removed in the first inning of Tuesday's game against the Cleveland Indians due to upper right arm discomfort. After the game, he told reporters that he felt a grab in his upper arm, around the biceps area, after throwing a slider to Bradley Zimmer. He explained that he'd felt a similar pain before, but that it was a bit too much for him in this particular instance. He also added that he was feeling better and said that he's "not overly concerned about it." We likely won't see Singer again in 2021. Over 27 starts this year, he's gone 5-10 with a 4.91 ERA and a 1.55 WHIP.
Kansas City Royals starting pitcher Brady Singer (arm) left Tuesday's start versus the Cleveland Indians with upper right arm discomfort, according to the team. The 25-year-old surrendered three hits, a walk, and three earned runs before being pulled after 2/3 innings. More information should be available after the game, but it would be a safe assumption to say the right-hander's season is over. Provided the injury isn't major, Singer poses an intriguing back-of-the-rotation option for redraft leagues next season.
Kansas City Royals starting pitcher Brady Singer broke camp with the team in 2020, earning a spot in the rotation as a rookie. The former first-round pick rose quickly through the minors, giving the fledgling Royals little choice but to give him a shot. Singer impressed right away, limiting the Tigers and Indians to two runs over five innings in each of his first two starts. He had his share of ups and downs, like most rookie pitchers, but saved his best for last. Singer allowed a total of four runs on nine hits over his final four starts, spanning 24 innings. Of course, three of those four starts came against the Tigers and Indians, so a weak offensive division did play into his favor. He ended the year with a 4.06 ERA, 1.17 WHIP, and nearly a strikeout per inning.Aside from natural maturation process, Singer could develop his game further by integrating his changeup more often. Singer is essentially a two-pitch pitcher, relying heavily on a sinker-slider combo to induce a high 53.7% ground ball rate. He didn't throw the changeup often but when he did, it came with good results (.167 BAA). More confidence in the pitch could keep batters honest in laying off the sinker and earn him even more Ks. A favorable home park and schedule play into his favor, making him a solid back-end rotation piece on fantasy squads. His early ADP of 220 in NFBC drafts makes him a low-risk SP.
