Description: Astros first baseman Jon Singleton went 1-for-3 with a homer, two RBI and two runs Wednesday against Oakland.
Insight: Singleton has been working on shortening his swing with hitting coach John Mallee, and Mallee said the results so far have been "absolutely amazing," according to mlb.com. The first baseman has hit .174 with eight homers, 26 RBI, 23 runs and a Chris Carter-esque 35.7 percent K rate in 196 plate appearances.

Description: Houston first baseman Jon Singleton homered in his big league debut Tuesday against Los Angeles.

Insight: Singleton, who signed a five-year extension today, will start off batting out of the No. 6 spot in the lineup. The impressive power he displayed in Triple-A (14 HR in 195 at bats) suggests he could be a factor right away.
 
6/2/2014 6:55:00 PM
Description: The Astros have signed first baseman Jon Singleton to a five-year, $10 million contract extension.
Insight: He's slated to make his big league debut on Tuesday. Singleton's career was briefly derailed by substance abuse but he's put that behind him and has had a very good season for Triple-A Oklahoma City (.267, 14 HR, 43 RBI).

Description: Astros first base prospect Jon Singleton has 10 homers and a .997 OPS in 32 games with Triple-A Oklahoma City this season.
Insight: MLB.com ranks Singleton as the top first-base prospect in baseball. He may already be in the majors if he wasn't suspended 50 games in 2013 for failing two drug tests for marijuana. Astros first basemen have a .533 OPS this season, third-worst in the majors.
 
6/16/2013 4:08:00 PM

Insight: After serving a 50-game suspension for failing a second drug test for marijuana, Singleton has hit .271 with five homers and a 1.024 OPS in 17 games with Class-A Quad Cities and Double-A Corpus Christi.
