One year ago this week, the Kansas City Royals used their first five draft picks on collegiate starting pitchers. Their top choice, Florida right-hander Brady Singer, is already the top prospect in the organization.
Singer dominated in 10 starts at Class A Wilmington, and he made his Double-A debut Saturday night in Springfield.
The 6-foot-5 starter says he knows he must be patient, but his 2018 draft class could be one to remember for the Royals.
“The Royals fans have been great,” Singer said. “I saw a bunch of them here [Saturday] night for my debut. That means so much to me as an upcoming guy, hopefully being in Kansas City one day.”
Singer threw five innings and earned the win in his first start for the Naturals.
