This isn't good news....
brady singer, hs rhp and u of florida commit, looks like he will not sign w/ jays. was No. 56 pick w/ $1,091,200 slot— Jon Heyman (@JonHeymanCBS) July 17, 2015
Singer was the Jays second round pick in this year's draft. They will get a compensation pick next year, but I hate to miss out on a top pick. Even if next year's pick is just as good as Singer, we lose a year of development.
Minor League Ball didn't like the pick of Singer:
Brady Singer throws from a low 3/4 slot and has bumped up to 96 this spring while sitting in the low 90's. Due to his funky low slot, he struggles to break off a breaking ball consistently but he should be able to spin a slider with his arm speed. He is very projectable and could get his velo to sit closer to what he maxes out as. Commitments to Florida are often strong and I would rather see what he does at Florida than pay him top 2 round money. I'm not sure he can start with that arm angle and build.
