4. Brady Singer
The Royals' longest-tenured starter suddenly finds himself at the end of the rotation after a disappointing 2023, though he's still shown the promise that made the organization believe he was a front-line starter.
Singer had a 5.75 ERA after posting a 3.40 ERA in 2022, a huge drop-off from what looked like a potential breakout performance two years ago. Nonetheless, I'm willing to chalk last year up to a lost season due to outside factors and think Singer can find that ace potential again.
We know Singer's competitive fire runs deep and he's a bridge between the Royals of old and the Royals of new.
The former first-round pick has the stuff to be a reliable starter - can he find the magic without the pressure of leading a rotation?
