Scouting Reports from Brooks Baseball.
Brady Singer: Brady Singer has thrown 162 pitches that have been tracked by the PITCHf/x system in 2020, all of them occuring in the MLB Regular Season. In 2020, he has relied primarily on his Sinker (94mph) and Slider (84mph), also mixing in a Change (88mph).
His sinker generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers’ sinkers, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers’ sinkers, has less armside run than typical and has slightly above average velo. His slider has exceptional depth and results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers’ sliders. His change is much firmer than usual, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers’ changeups and has slight armside fade.
Sean’s note: Singer is currently a top prospect. The 2018 first round pick generates a ton of grounders with his power sinker.
Final Thoughts: Little bit of a lineup change for the Cubs today. Steven Souza Jr. faces a righty and Jason Kipnis is in for Nico Hoerner. Kyle Hendricks was a bit off in his last outing after dominating opening day.
