Brady Singer – Florida
Another SEC pitcher with a big arm … surprise, surprise. Singer entered the year as the consensus first overall pick, but he has dropped on a lot of people’s radar as his stuff has dipped a little bit.
Still, this 6-foot-5 righty has been dominant this year, and actually out-dueled Mize a few weeks back.
Much like Mize, his career started a little shakey and he’s gotten better each year. In 2016 he posted a 4.95 ERA in 43.2 innings pitched with 38 strikeouts. Then he pitched in the Cape Cod League that summer with a 0.82 ERA in 22 innings pitched with 20 strikeouts.
Last year he led the Gators to a College World Series title by posting a 3.21 ERA in 126 innings pitched with 129 strikeouts.
This year he’s actually been better thus far with a 2.63 ERA in 72 innings pitched with 81 strikeouts.
He also throws a mid-90s fastball with some two-seam run. Singer also throws a plus slider and a developing change-up.
