Singer was reinstated from the COVID-19 injured list ahead of his scheduled start in the first game of Monday's doubleheader in Cleveland. Singer had only been on the injured list since Friday, so his quick return seemingly indicates that he was only on the list for precautionary reasons. He'll be looking to bounce back from a poor performance in his previous start which saw the Twins clear the fence against him five times.
Singer is expected to be activated from the injured list and start Game 1 of Monday's doubleheader versus Cleveland, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports. Singer was placed on the injured list Friday for an undisclosed reason. The quick return indicates he's cleared COVID-19 protocols and will be able to pitch in the first game of the twin bill. He'll still need to be officially activated prior to the start.
Singer was placed on the injured list for undisclosed reasons prior to his scheduled start Friday against the Mariners. The absence of an injury designation suggests it could be a COVID-related move, but there's been no indication of that. Singer gave up six runs on five home runs in his last start Saturday, raising his ERA to 4.85 and his WHIP to 1.56 on the season. Jon Heasley was selected from Double-A Northwest Arkansas and may start in Singer's stead.
Singer (4-10) took the loss Saturday against the Twins, giving up six runs on seven hits and a pair of walks over 4.2 innings. He struck out five. Singer was tagged for five -- count 'em, five -- home runs after having allowed just one over his previous eight starts. Jorge Polanco took him deep twice, while Byron Buxton, Nick Gordon and Max Kepler each added solo blasts -- the first time an opposing lineup has hit multiple homers off Singer since June 22. Singer, who has just one win in his last 14 outings (1-6), is tentatively lined up to face Seattle at home next week.
Singer (4-9) allowed four hits over seven scoreless innings Sunday, striking out six and earning a win over the White Sox. Singer was terrific in Sunday's win, coughing up just four singles and never letting a runner reach scoring position. It was his first scoreless outing since April 18, and he picked up his first victory since June 1. Over his last four starts, the 25-year-old righty has allowed four earned runs over 24.2 innings (1.46 ERA) with a 23:9 K:BB. Singer is lined up to face the Twins on the road next weekend.
