Biographical Information[edit]

Pitcher Brady Singer was selected by the Toronto Blue Jays in the second round of the 2015 amateur draft but did not sign, choosing to go to the University of Florida instead. In 2018, he was drafted again, this time with the 18th overall pick, by the Kansas City Royals. Heading into the draft, he was considered the #2 college pitcher available, after #1 overall pick Casey Mize and was described as "nearly major league ready", so it was a surprise that he was not picked earlier. He was a finalist for the Golden Spikes Award after the season, alongside Mize, but lost out to Andrew Vaughn. He did win the Dick Howser Trophy, the other major college baseball prize, however. He signed with the Royals for a bonus of $4.25 million. He did not make his professional pitching debut that year. The following Christmas, he revealed that he did not use the bonus money to buy himself a fancy car, as is often the case, but instead to pay off his parents' debt, as a thank you for supporting and accompanying him on his journey to becoming a top prospect.

He was named to the roster of the American League team for the 2019 Futures Game.
