Brady Singer News
Kansas City Royals right-hander Brady Singer is being called up from Triple-A Omaha on Tuesday to start the second game of a doubleheader against the Chicago White Sox. Jonathan Heasley will get the nod in Game 1. Singer could stick around in KC's starting rotation if he has a solid outing on Tuesday. The 25-year-old will be making his first start of the season after allowing four earned runs on seven hits while walking one and striking out six in 5 2/3 relief innings over three appearances earlier this year. He has started 39 games for the Royals in the last two season and was doing well in Omaha's rotation before his call-up. Singer is a more attractive option than Heasley in deeper fantasy leagues.
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 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.
