Brady Singer made his MLB debut for the Kansas City Royals on Saturday in the team’s second game of the 2020 season.

Kansas City Royals fans have to be feeling pretty good about Brady Singer after his Major League debut on Saturday. The 2018 first round pick threw five innings while allowing two runs and striking out seven.

The first two innings were scoreless efforts from Singer and the only inning we truly saw him struggle in was the third inning where both runs were allowed. He pitched scoreless fourth and fifth innings and the seven strikeouts were just a tad shy of the record for a Royals pitcher.

It’s only one game, but it’s hard not to be excited about this outing for Singer. The Royals are hoping he’s a huge part of the next wave of contenders and he’s the first of that 2018 draft class to find his way into the majors.

As the broadcasters noted, guys like Jackson Kowar and Daniel Lynch saw Singer go out there and pitch well and they’ll be motivated to get to that level and try to out do him in friendly competition.

The Royals might not have a ton going for them in 2020, but these debuts are what fans should be the most excited for. Tyler Zuber set the bar high on Friday with his two scoreless innings of relief and now Singer raised the bar with five innings of two run ball.

It’ll be a season of MLB debuts for this team and so far, they’re off to a good start.
