24-Year-Old PitcherSP
2020 Fantasy Outlook
Still mostly a sinker/slider pitcher, Singer's lack of a deep repertoire did not prevent him from having steady success in his debut season, as he stayed healthy and logged a 2.85 ERA and 1.19 WHIP over 148.1 IP. He generated groundballs at over a 50% clip and logged a 17.6 K-BB% at High-A and a 15.3 K-BB% at Double-A. His lack of a reliable changeup led to left-handed hitters slashing .276/.352/.385 against him, but he stifled right-handed hitters, who slashed just .222/.273/.337. His plus slider and low-90s sinker give him the floor of a back-of-the-rotation starter, but he needs to improve his changeup in order to become a well-rounded No. 3 starter. The Royals have a wave of well-regarded pitchers coming. They should all spend most of 2020 pitching in the upper levels of the minors, and Singer could be the first of that wave to reach the majors if his changeup improves this summer. Read Past Outlooks

Sharp in season finale
PKansas City Royals
September 27, 2020
Singer (4-5) allowed one run on three hits and no walks while striking out five over seven innings as he earned the win Sunday against the Tigers.
ANALYSIS
Singer struggled with command in his last start, but he ended the season on a high note by allowing only three baserunners over seven innings in the season finale. The right-hander pitched well in his first major-league season, finishing with a 4.06 ERA and 61:23 K:BB over 63.1 innings across 12 starts.

2019 Fantasy Outlook
The Blue Jays selected Singer in the second round out of high school in 2015, but he opted against signing, instead choosing to attend the University of Florida. His bet on himself paid off, as Singer improved his stock during his time in college and ended up going 18th overall in last June's first-year player draft. While Singer did not pitch for an affiliate after being drafted by the Royals, he did achieve some level of fame after he used part of his $4-plus million signing bonus to pay off his parents' debt, with the reaction video going viral. Singer is a big, 6-foot-5 right-hander with a low arm slot and incredible horizontal movement on his two primary pitches (fastball/slider). He's now 22 and so the clock is ticking on the development of his changeup and command. If neither of those pieces of the puzzle come along, Singer could transition to a high-leverage relief role. He figures to open 2019 at the High-A level.
