  • Royals' Brady Singer: Strikes out nine Sunday

    Singer allowed two runs on six hits and three walks while striking out nine in 4.2 innings during Sunday's win over the Tigers. He didn't factor into the decision.

    Singer had his shortest start of the season during Sunday's outing, but he matched his season-high mark in strikeouts during the victory. In spite of his strong strikeout rate, he was held out of the win column for a fourth consecutive outing. The right-hander has given up at least seven runs in each of his last seven starts, and he's posted a 5.54 ERA and 1.33 WHIP in 39 innings during that time. He tentatively lines up to make his next start at home against the Guardians on Friday.

  • Royals' Brady Singer: Next start pushed to Sunday

    Singer, who initially scheduled to start Saturday's game in Detroit, will instead take the hill for Sunday's series finale, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports.

    Kris Bubic will pick up his second start of the week Saturday before Singer returns to the mound Sunday on six days' rest. The Royals likely just wanted to extend Singer some extra recovery time after he tossed a season-high 8.1 innings and 99 pitches in his most recent outing June 26 against the Athletics.

  • Royals' Brady Singer: Allows five runs in loss

    Singer (3-3) took the loss against the Athletics on Sunday, allowing five runs on seven hits while striking out five and walking one over 8.1 innings.

    Singer pitched an efficient game, throwing 66 of 99 pitches for strikes across 8.1 frames, yet he was unable to pick up the win. He allowed five earned runs in the contest, which turned out to be too much for the Royals' offense to overcome. The righty has allowed three or more runs in four of five June appearances. Singer will take a 4.50 ERA into his next appearance.

  • Royals' Brady Singer: Allows three runs in loss

    Singer (3-2) took the loss against the Athletics on Sunday, allowing three runs on six hits while striking out four and walking none in 5.1 innings.

    Singer gave up three runs in Sunday's loss to Oakland thanks to home runs from Seth Brown and Sean Murphy. Singer threw 58 of 82 pitches for strikes in the outing. The righty has not lasted more than 5.2 innings since a seven-inning outing on May 22 and has been tagged for three or more earned runs in four of five appearances since then. Singer will take a 4.34 ERA into his next appearance.

  • Royals' Brady Singer: Wild in no-decision

    Singer did not factor in the decision against San Francisco on Monday, allowing two runs on two hits and five walks while striking out five over five innings.

    Singer allowed only two hits -- both doubles -- in his five frames, but he yielded a season-high five walks. Four of the free passes came consecutively in the third inning, when Singer couldn't find his control and walked in a pair of runs with two outs. Walks hadn't been an issue for Singer this season -- he entered Monday having yielded just four free passes across 35.1 frames -- but the right-hander has been worse in that area in previous campaigns. After hurling 16.2 scoreless innings over four appearances across a month-long period in April and May, Singer has come back to earth by giving up 15 earned runs over 20.2 frames in his past four starts.

  • Royals' Brady Singer: Nabs third win

    Singer (3-1) picked up the win in Wednesday's 8-4 victory over the Blue Jays, giving up three runs on eight hits over five innings. He struck out five without walking a batter.

    Two of the hits off Singer left the yard, but the right-hander got enough run support to weather the blows. Keeping the ball in the yard has become a problem for the 25-year-old, as he's served up six homers in his last three starts. However, Singer still sports a 3.94 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and sharp 29:3 K:BB in 29.2 innings since rejoining the Royals' rotation.

  • Royals' Brady Singer: Gives up three homers

    Singer (2-1) allowed seven runs on eight hits and no walks with four strikeouts in five innings, taking the loss against the Astros on Friday.

    Singer had allowed just two homers in 25.1 innings this season, but the Astros muscled up for three long balls Friday to account for six of the seven runs on his line. The right-hander has been mostly solid since rejoining the rotation -- this was his first bad start in four since May 17. He owns a 4.15 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 30:4 K:BB across 30.1 innings overall. He'll look to bounce back in another tough home matchup next week versus the Blue Jays.

  • Royals' Brady Singer: Scoreless streak ends, grabs win

    Singer (2-0) earned the win Saturday after he pitched 5.2 innings, surrendering three runs on six hits while striking out eight versus the Twins.

    Singer gave up a solo homer to Trevor Larnach in the bottom of the second before later surrendering two more runs in the sixth frame, recording two outs in the inning before exiting. He fell one out short of recording his third straight quality start while he gave up his first earned runs since getting recalled from Triple-A Omaha on May 17. Since his call up, Singer has compiled a 1.37 ERA and 0.86 WHIP with 20 strikeouts over 19.2 innings in three starts.

  • Royals' Brady Singer: Another scoreless start

    Singer allowed four hits and three walks over seven shutout innings in Sunday's loss to the Twins. He struck out three and did not factor in the decision.

    Singer faced a couple of threats Sunday, including in the sixth inning when he loaded the bases with just one out, but he managed to keep the Twins off the board. He's fired 14 scoreless frames in two starts this month and has a 16.2-inning shutout streak dating back to April. With the way he's pitching of late, the 25-year-old righty should continue seeing regular action at the MLB level. Singer is currently projected to get a rematch in Minnesota next week.

  • Royals' Brady Singer: Promoted for Sunday's start

    Singer was recalled from Triple-A Omaha and will start Sunday's game versus the Twins.

    The 25-year-old was demoted after delivering seven scoreless innings for the Royals during Tuesday's doubleheader, but he's now back with the big-league club and will retain his spot in the rotation. Carlos Hernandez was sent down to Omaha on Friday, so Singer should have a secure starting spot for the near future.

  • Royals' Brady Singer: Expected to start Sunday

    Singer is on the Royals' taxi squad and is expected to start Sunday against the Twins, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports.

    Singer was sent down after starting in the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader, but he'll pitch on normal rest during Sunday's series finale at home against the Twins. The 25-year-old began the season in a relief role but allowed four hits and no walks while striking out nine in seven innings during Tuesday's start against the White Sox.

  • Royals' Brady Singer: Fires seven shutout frames

    Singer (1-0) earned the win during the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the White Sox after giving up four hits with nine strikeouts and zero walks over seven scoreless innings. He was optioned to Triple-A Omaha after the contest.

    Singer served as the 27th man for the twin bill, so it's not a surprise he's returning to the minors despite the impressive showing. The right-hander pounded the zone and threw 70 of his 93 pitches for strikes while generating 18 swings and misses and showing new confidence in his changeup, which he used 17 percent of the time Singer was shifted to the bullpen for the start of the season and was sent to Triple-A after three relief outings, but he returned to the majors and pitched a gem in his first start of the year. The 25-year-old should receive another look in the major-league rotation before long following Tuesday's performance.

  • Royals' Brady Singer: Called up for doubleheader start

    The Royals recalled Singer from Triple-A Omaha ahead of his scheduled start in the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader with the White Sox.

    As anticipated, Singer is being designated as the Royals' 27th man for the twin bill, but he'll have a chance to stick around as the fifth member of the Kansas City rotation if he outperforms the starter in Game 1, Jonathan Heasley. After failing to escape the fourth inning while issuing four walks and allowing four hits in his first start with Kansas City last week against the Rangers, Heasley doesn't enter Tuesday with a long leash as a starter. Meanwhile, Singer started 39 games for Kansas City between the past two seasons, and despite opening the 2022 campaign in the bullpen, he's fared well as a starter since being optioned to Triple-A in late April. He stretched out to six innings in his most recent outing last week, so he shouldn't face any major workload restrictions when he makes his first start for the big club later Tuesday.

  • Royals' Brady Singer: Locked in to start nightcap Tuesday

    Singer will be called up from Triple-A Omaha to start the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader with the White Sox, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

    Kansas City will presumably designate Singer as its 27th man for the twin bill, but that doesn't necessarily mean he'll be sent out to Omaha immediately after the outing. Instead, Singer's performance in his first start with the big club this season along with how Jonathan Heasley fares in Game 1 of the twin bill will likely determine which of the two sticks around in Kansas City as the team's No. 5 starter. After failing to win an Opening Day rotation spot and making three appearances out of the bullpen before being optioned to Omaha in late April, Singer gradually upped his pitch count in the minors while serving as a starter. He most recently tossed six innings for Omaha on May 11, conceding four runs on four hits and two walks while striking out four in a game against Iowa.

  • Royals' Brady Singer: Candidate to start Tuesday

    Singer joined the Royals' taxi squad Monday and could be formally recalled from Triple-A Omaha on Tuesday to start one game of Kansas City's doubleheader with the White Sox, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

    After missing out on a spot in Kansas City's season-opening rotation, Singer made three relief appearances for the Royals before being optioned to Omaha on April 28. Since being demoted, Singer has been building up in preparation for a starting role, with the right-hander most recently covering six innings and giving up four runs in his last start May 11. Singer previously made 27 starts at the big-league level in 2021, submitting a 4.91 ERA, 1.55 WHIP and 131:53 K:BB across 128.1 innings.

  • Royals' Brady Singer: Goes to minors, preparing to start

    Singer was optioned to Triple-A Omaha on Thursday, Alec Lewis of The Athletic reports.

    Singer began the season in a bullpen role and posted a 6.35 ERA and 1.41 WHIP in 5.2 innings during three relief appearances. He'll attempt to right the ship as a starter in the minors and will presumably be an option to fill in if the Royals' rotation staff deals with injuries at some point, per Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star.

  • Royals' Brady Singer: Logs two scoreless innings

    Singer allowed a hit and struck out two in two scoreless innings in Tuesday's 6-0 win over the White Sox.

    Singer gave up four runs in three innings in his first appearance of the year, but he's cover 2.2 scoreless frames in his last two outings. The right-hander has added a 6:1 K:BB this season in a small sample. For now, he's expected to remain in a multi-inning relief role, but he will be near the top of the list of candidates for spot starts whenever the Royals need one.

  • Royals' Brady Singer: Poor in first relief outing

    Singer allowed four runs on six hits and a walk with three strikeouts in three innings during Sunday's 17-3 loss to the Guardians.

    Singer's first career relief appearance didn't go very well, though it had little impact on what was already a blowout before he entered the game. The right-hander allowed a two-run home run to Jose Ramirez and an RBI single to Ernie Clement in the seventh inning, and then ran into more trouble that yielded a Franmil Reyes RBI single in the eighth. Starter Kris Bubic and long reliever Jackson Kowar both struggled as well, with the latter being reassigned to Triple-A Omaha on Monday as a result. While Singer is expected to continue working out of the bullpen, he'll need to pitch better than he did Sunday to get back into the rotation.
