Description: Astros first baseman Jon Singleton went 1-for-3 with a homer, two RBI and two runs Wednesday against Oakland.

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
