Starting Pitcher Loses Arbitration Case Against Kansas City Royals

He won't be making as much as he wanted to this season.

Starter Brady Singer has lost his arbitration case against the Kansas City Royals and will make $2.95 million this upcoming season.

Singer had originally requested $3.325 million.

On the bright side, it's still a good raise for the young pitcher in his first season of arbitration eligibility. 

He'll repeat the ordeal three more times before he hits free agency following the 2026 season, barring any long-term contract extension before then. The Royals were rumored to have explored a long-term extension with Singer, but nothing has come of it yet.

The twenty-six-year-old had a nice season last year, posting a 3.23 ERA, 1.14 WHIP, and 150 strikeouts over 153.1 innings of work and 24 starts.

He is a former first-round pick (18th overall) by the Royals in the 2018 MLB Draft.
