Brady Singer, the touted starter who Royals fans have been waiting for, will likely make the team this year as the fifth starter out of spring training. Now, this is undetermined at this moment, but expect to see a lot of Singer this year whether it’s as a starter or in the bullpen.

With the current rotation, the Royals fifth starter is either Jorge Lopez, Glenn Sparkman, or Jesse Hahnwhat a group of talent. The only one I think has a chance of being the fifth starter is Sparkman, because I believe Lopez is a long reliever with his stuff and Hahn hasn’t played in two years due to injuries.

The fifth spot in the rotation comes down to Sparkman or Singer, and I believe Singer has the advantage due to raw talent. Sparkman has also stated he would be fine coming out of the bullpen. That leaves the door open for Singer to win the spot outright and Royals fans should expect to see a lot of Singer as a starter this year.

Royals fans will get a chance to finally see some of the young talents that were developing in the minors. Even though this year probably won’t be great record-wise, fans should be happy for the youth movement and seeing some great players in the coming years.
