Career

Kowar attended and graduated from Charlotte Christian School in Charlotte, North Carolina.[1] He signed to play college baseball for Clemson University as a sophomore, but was granted his release following a coaching change.[2] As a senior, he compiled a 10-1 record and 0.20 ERA with 118 strikeouts in 71 innings. He was drafted by the Detroit Tigers in the 40th round of the 2015 Major League Baseball Draft,[3] but he did not sign and instead enrolled at the University of Florida.

As a freshman in 2016, Kowar appeared in 12 games, pitching to a 3-0 record and 3.37 ERA with 44 strikeouts in 34.2 innings pitched. His season was ended in May as he was sidelined due to a medical condition not related to baseball.[4][5] He returned in 2017 and went 12-1, tying Florida's best single-season record in school history, along with posting a 4.08 ERA with 84 strikeouts in 19 games (18 starts).[6] During the 2017 College World Series, Kowar earned the save in the championship game, pitching 1.2 scoreless innings, clinching Florida's 2017 national title.[7] In 2018, as a junior, Kowar was named to the All-SEC Second Team.[8] He finished his junior year with a 10-5 record and a 3.04 ERA in 18 starts.[9]

The Kansas City Royals selected Kowar with the 33rd overall pick in the 2018 MLB Draft,[10] and he signed for $2,147,500.[11] He made his professional debut with the Lexington Legends.[12]
