Singer (shoulder) is set to make his second rehab start Wednesday, Omaha Storm Chasers announcer Jake Eisenberg reports. Singer had a rough outing versus Triple-A Toledo last week, giving up four runs on five hits and a walk in 1.1 innings. He'll look for better results Wednesday, and if all goes well, he could be activated from the 10-day injured list next week.
Singer (shoulder) began a rehab assignment with Triple-A Omaha on Friday. Singer is already eligible to return from a bout of shoulder fatigue but will make at least one rehab start before doing so. If that one outing is all he needs, he should return to the active roster sometime next week.
Manager Mike Matheny said Thursday that Singer (shoulder) will likely begin a rehab assignment soon, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports. Singer has been on the injured list for just over a week due to right shoulder fatigue, but he's felt much better in recent days. Matheny isn't sure what day the right-hander could report to a minor-league affiliate, but he should return to game action soon.
The Royals placed Singer on the 10-day injured list Tuesday due to right shoulder fatigue, Joel Goldberg of Bally Sports Kansas City reports. Singer's move to the IL comes just a few days after he was lit up for seven runs over two innings en route to taking a loss to the Orioles. The young righty hasn't won any of his last eight starts and has posted a 5.24 ERA and 1.78 WHIP over that span. In addition to Singer, the Royals also placed another rotation member, Danny Duffy (elbow), on the 10-day IL ahead of Tuesday's game against the Brewers. Due to a pair of off days this week, the Royals could elect to get by with a four-man rotation for the time being, with long reliever Kris Bubic presumably moving from the bullpen to pick up a start this weekend against the Tigers.
Singer (3-7) allowed seven runs on eight hits and a walk with just one strikeout to take the loss Saturday to Baltimore. Singer needed 60 pitches to record just six outs before being taken out in the third inning. After a scoreless opening frame, Singer gave up a pair of runs in the second and five more in the third on his way to an eighth straight start without a victory. The 24-year-old produced a promising rookie campaign in 2020 but hasn't been able to put it together as a sophomore, posting a 5.13 ERA and 1.55 WHIP over 87.2 innings. Singer has been able to miss bats (92 strikeouts), but he's allowed a flood of baserunners with 99 hits and 37 walks while hitting nine batters.
