Brady Singer News
The Kansas City Royals have shut down starting pitcher Brady Singer (back) for the rest of the season, according to Anne Rogers of MLB.com. The right-hander started Monday's game against the Cleveland Guardians and experienced back tightness afterward. Following a breakout 2022 campaign in which he registered a 3.23 ERA, Singer struggled over 159 2/3 innings this year, posting a 5.52 ERA, 1.45 WHIP, and 18.9% strikeout rate. Fantasy managers who still own the 27-year-old can easily replace that kind of production with someone on the waiver wire.
The Kansas City Royals reinstated right-hander Brady Singer (arm) from the paternity list on Monday and optioned infielder Samad Taylor to Triple-A Omaha in a corresponding move. Singer is on track to make his next start on Tuesday against the Chicago White Sox. In addition to being away from the team for the birth of his child, Singer hasn't pitched since Aug. 25 due to arm fatigue. Even though the White Sox are a great matchup in fantasy, the 27-year-old will come with some extra risk after the longer-than-usual layoff. Singer struggled in his previous two starts against the Cubs and Mariners, allowing 10 runs (eight earned) on 18 hits (three home runs) while walking three and striking out nine in 7 2/3 innings.
Kansas City Royals starting pitcher Brady Singer (arm) remains on the paternity leave list, but could be activated this week. The organization is hopeful that Singer will be available for their upcoming series against the Chicago White Sox. The team has already confirmed Cole Ragans and Jordan Lyles as their starters for Monday and Wednesday. The assumption is that Singer will pitch Tuesday, but he hasn't started since August 25 due to arm fatigue. He was shut down from throwing and then went on the paternity leave list on Friday. The right-hander is scheduled to throw a bullpen session on Sunday. It's assumed he'll start on Tuesday, but fantasy managers will have to check back for another update on his status. The 27-year-old has not pitched well this season and can be avoided in most fantasy formats.
Following a rocky start to his 2022 season, Kansas City Royals right-hander Brady Singer ended up sporting some quality surface stats. Singer finished the season with a 3.23 ERA across 24 starts, and 27 appearances spanning 151 1/3 innings pitched. He was solid in the second half, turning in a tidy 2.53 ERA across 81 2/3 frames with a fantastic 5.2% BB% to boot. However, the 26-year-old's fantasy upside was capped due to a lukewarm 24.2% K%, a figure Steamer projects to slip to a 21.9% mark in 2023. More concerning are Singer's Statcast rankings. He ranked in the league's 28th percentile in average exit velocity, 44th in xERA/xwOBA, 33rd in barrel rate, and 17th in chase rate. His control is robust, but Singer's minor-league track record suggests he will not be a strikeout pitcher in the big leagues. The 2018 first-round pick is Rotoballer's 52nd-ranked starter and the 174th-ranked player coming into the 2023 campaign while boasting an ADP of around 190 in NFBC leagues. ATC projects Singer with a 3.87 ERA, 3.74 FIP, and an 8.34 K:9 across 175 innings in 2023. Given the uneasy metrics and limited strikeout potential, we don't suggest reaching for Singer anywhere before the 175th pick.
