KC Royals news is all about the organization’s first two picks in the draft, as they dazzled for the Florida Gators over the weekend in the Super Regionals of the college baseball playoffs.

It was already pretty cool that the Kansas City Royals took pitchers from the same school their first two picks, but what was even cooler was that fans had a chance to watch both guys in action this weekend. It was the Super Regionals for college baseball and Florida once again was partaking.

The Royals’ first two draft picks – Brady Singer and Jackson Kowar – both took the mound this weekend for the Gators. While Florida will play a deciding Game 3 vs Auburn on Monday to decide who goes to Omaha, Singer and Kowar did what was asked of them and Royals fans have to be thrilled at what they saw from their future guys.

Singer twirled 6.2 innings of two run ball while walking two batters and striking out nine. He also got the win. Kowar went seven innings while only allowing one run, issuing zero walks, and striking out six. Both guys were electric!

If Florida wins on Monday, the Gators will go to Omaha for the fourth straight year and we’ll continue to see what Singer and Kowar can do. If they lose, then well… They’ll officially become Royals. That’s cool too obviously.

Here’s what’s trending in KC Royals news throughout FanSided.

More from Kansas City Royals

"Due to the lack of productivity, the Royals starting rotation has had the last two years, Singer could be a nice adjustment. Being a college pitcher, he could be closer to being MLB ready than a high school pitcher. Meaning he could contribute to the team sooner rather than later."

"The Royals want Escobar to keep up his consecutive starts record, but he’s not part of the future plans and it’s time to give Mondesi some of those starts."
