Singer was Kansas City’s top pick in the 2018 MLB Draft and rose quickly through the organization. The Leesburg, FL native started 26 games in 2019 and allowed only a 2.85 ERA across Single-A and Double-A ball.
The Royals open the season on Friday in Cleveland. Singer will make his debut in a 5:10 PM start on Saturday.
Known for his firey demeanor, the twenty-three year old righty pitched at The University of Florida from 2016-18 and led the Gators to their first national championship in 2017. Singer was selected with the No. 18 pick of the 2018 MLB Draft after being taken in the second round by Toronto out of high school.
