BSB: Brady Singer named SEC Co-Pitcher of the Week

Florida RHP Brady Singer is red-hot and the SEC seems to have taken notice.

Singer threw his first career complete game shutout on Friday as the Gators topped Texas A&M 9-0. Singer allowed only six hits while striking out five and walking none in the win.

On Monday, the Southeastern Conference announced Singer as the Co-Pitcher of the Week for his effort.

Singer has thrown 30 innings in his last four starts while only allowing four runs in that span for an ERA of 1.20.

Last week, the junior from Esutis, FL, outduelled perennial first overall pick Casey Mize of Auburn (whom he shared this week’s honor with).

Singer was a second round (#56 overall) pick in the 2015 MLB Draft by the Toronto Blue Jays and surprised many when he chose to come to Florida instead of chasing his professional dreams. However, he appears to have improved his draft stock and is widely considered to be taken the first several picks by draft analysts.

Singer is 10-1 with a 2.33 ERA in 12 started this year to go along with a 86:17 K/BB ratio in 81 innings of work.

The Gators (38-11, 18-6) return to action on Tuesday with a midweek showdown with #24 South Florida before a weekend series at home against SEC rival Georgia beginning Friday.
