Neither Morton or Singer have been too sharp in 2023 but they’ve gotten better results than expected. Charlie Morton has an xERA (expected era) of 7.0, he’s currently at 4.35. His BA against is at .326, he’s walked 5, and hit 1 batsman. He has a WHIP of 1.94 so far this season. The Royals lineup has just started swinging the bats well too. They put up 10 runs on Texas in their last game and 5 the game before that.
Singer’s xERA is 8.37, he’s at 4.91. His Barrells/PA % is at 9.1%, sweet spot % is 44.1, and he’s allowed a hard-hit ball 64.7% of the time. Those are ridiculously poor numbers. Hard Hit balls (exit velo 95mph+) results in a hit more than 50% of the time. This is the 4th best line-up in baseball that’s he’s pitching against today. The Royals bullpen also stinks. Their 5.65 era ranks 26th.
