On Monday MLB.com named the Top-50 2018 MLB Draft prospects. Florida RHP Brady Singer topped the list. Singer’s teammate and fellow righty, Jackson Kowar rounded out the Top-10.
Singer has amassed a 11-7 record and a 3.65 ERA in two seasons with the Gators. He sports a 8.84 strikeouts per nine innings rate (167 k’s in 170 innings of work). Singer has thrown three complete games thus far in his collegiate career.
In August MLBPipeline.com named Singer the #1 college prospect.
Kowar joined the list as the #10 draft prospect despite not being in the Top-10 among MLBPipeline’s college prospects.
Kowar has recorded a remarkable 15-1 record at Florida to go along with a 3.90 ERA. Kowar has struck out 128 hitters and walked only 54.
This is the third consecutive year that a Gators pitcher has been included in the Top-5. In 2016, AJ Puk was ranked #2, and Alex Faedo entered 2017 as the #4 prospect.
Singer, Kowar, and junior Tyler Dyson are expected to round out Florida’s weekend rotation and played a major part in Florida winning the program’s first National Championship in June.
