Breaking News: Royals select RHP Brady Singer from the University of Florida

With the 18th pick in the 2018 MLB Draft, the Kansas City Royals have selected RHP Brady Singer from the University of Florida.

I did not expect Brady Singer to be here at #18. The consensus #1-2 pick in the draft a year ago, Singer slid after a bit of a rough start to his 2018 campaign. The ace of the Florida Gators’ staff, Singer features a brilliant fastball/slider combo that figures to rise through the minor leagues very quickly.

Here’s a quote from the Philly Inquirer: ““I’d take Singer if I was them,” an American League scout said. “He’s a little bit like [Aaron] Nola in that he is very competitive, he throws strikes and his stuff is above average, especially his fastball. He has a chance to be a middle-of-the-rotation guy, if not better than that, and it could happen fast.”

This guy could be in KC’s rotation very soon. He’s probably a #2 at his peak, but I’d expect him to be a mid-rotation starter.
