Singer has been able to pitch with such top college talent like A.J. Puk, the No. 6 overall pick in 2016, and Alex Faedo, who went No. 18 last June, at the University of Florida. After playing a pivotal role in helping the Gators win a national title, and pitching better than Faedo in many ways, it’s now Singer’s turn to be the Florida ace with a chance to go No. 1 overall in the Draft.
Singer checks off all of the boxes teams are looking for out of a potential top pick. Long and lean, he has a terrific pitcher’s body that has thus far proven to be durable. He’ll throw his fastball up to 95-96 mph consistently, with plus life. His slider plays well off of his fastball, a second plus pitch he manipulates in terms of depth and velocity whenever he wants to. His changeup continues to improve and should be at least an average offering. He commands the ball well, gets high marks for his makeup and is a plus competitor.
Both Puk and Faedo entered into their Draft seasons as potential 1-1 selections, but didn’t peform quite well enough to go in that top spot. Singer is a more complete pitcher than his predecessors were at the same point in their college careers and, assuming health, should be in the conversation at the very top of the first round.
