Astros | Jon Singleton heading back to minors

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 10:38:23 -0700

Houston Astros 1B Jon Singleton will be optioned back to the minors Friday, July 31.

Fantasy Tip: Singleton ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) struggled again in his second taste of the big leagues, going 9-for-44 (.205) with one home run and six RBI. He still has power upside at the major league level, but owners will need to be patient. He's only worth holding in dynasty leagues. Even with Singleton gone, Chris Carter could lose playing time now that Jed Lowrie is back on the active roster.

Astros | Chris Carter not playing

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 15:42:07 -0700

Houston Astros 1B Chris Carter is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 29. 1B Jon Singleton is starting at first base and is hitting eighth against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Garrett Richards.

Fantasy Tip: Singleton ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) has yet again struggled to transition to the majors, as he has only seven hits in 41 at-bats (.171 average) with no home runs and 16 strikeouts. He'll continue to be a low-end first base pick on FantasyScore, especially with inconsistent playing time off the bench.

Astros | Marwin Gonzalez starting at first base

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 09:12:01 -0700

Houston Astros SS Marwin Gonzalez is starting at first base and batting seventh against Kansas City Royals SP Yordano Ventura Sunday, July 26. 1Bs Chris Carter and Jon Singleton are not in the starting lineup Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) stands as a sneaky source of cap relief at FantasyScore Sunday. While his production is modest (.267/.300/.438 with 27 runs, seven home runs and 22 RBI over 222 plate appearances), Ventura ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) has struggled (6.21 ERA over his past six starts), so the Astros have a chance to score plenty Sunday.

Astros | Chris Carter sitting out

Fri, 24 Jul 2015 14:02:41 -0700

Houston Astros 1B Chris Carter is not in the starting lineup against Kansas City Royals SP Jeremy Guthrie Friday, July 24. 1B Jon Singleton will start at first base and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Carter ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) likely is receiving a day off and should return to the lineup soon. Singleton ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is hitting .184 with four RBI this season and is not a great option for owners on FantasyScore.

Astros | Chris Carter out of the lineup

Wed, 22 Jul 2015 13:42:19 -0700

Houston Astros 1B Chris Carter is not in the starting lineup against Boston Red Sox SP Joe Kelly Wednesday, July 22. 1B Jon Singleton will start at first base and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Carter ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) likely is receiving a day off and should return to the lineup soon. Singleton ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is hitting only .167 this season and is not the best option for owners on FantasyScore to consider.

Astros | Jon Singleton starting

Sat, 18 Jul 2015 13:27:38 -0700

Houston Astros 1B Jon Singleton is starting at first base and hitting eighth in the order Saturday, July 18, against the Texas Rangers and RHP Colby Lewis. 1B Chris Carter (ankle) is out of the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Singleton ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) has a horrendous 42.4% strikeout rate through 33 plate appearances in the majors this season, but the power upside is clearly there, as he had hit 17 home runs at Class AAA this season. Singleton can be used in GPP tournaments on FantasyScore when he faces right-handed pitching.

Astros | Chris Carter has sprained ankle

Fri, 17 Jul 2015 18:27:18 -0700

Houston Astros 1B Chris Carter (ankle) left the game against the Texas Rangers Friday, July 17, because of a right ankle sprain. He suffered the injury after being pulled off the bag by an errant throw from 2B Jose Altuve on SS Elvis Andrus' infield single during the second inning. He was replaced in the game by 1B Jon Singleton.

Fantasy Tip: Expect Singleton ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) to receive regular playing time at first base if Carter ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) is sidelined for an extended period. Singleton was 3-for-25 with three RBIs entering play Friday, July 17, and is an inexpensive source of power in FantasyScore if you don't mind a low batting average.

Astros | Luis Valbuena could move across diamond

Wed, 15 Jul 2015 17:08:39 -0700

Houston Astros 3B Luis Valbuena has taken ground balls at first base recently and could be moved across the diamond to first base when SS Jed Lowrie (thumb) returns from injury. 1B Chris Carter hasn't gotten going in the first half and 1B Jon Singleton hasn't replicated his success in the minors to the major leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Valbuena ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has 19 home runs and is an excellent source of power for home run-starved fantasy teams, but he's hitting just .199 (57-for-286) on the season. A move across the diamond could help him add dual-position eligibility, though, which would make him a little more attractive to owners. Don't forget about Lowrie ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) in deep mixed and AL-only leagues as he nears a return.

Astros | Jon Singleton playing Saturday

Sat, 11 Jul 2015 11:48:03 -0700

Houston Astros 1B Jon Singleton will bat eighth against Tampa Bay Rays SP Jake Odorizzi Saturday, July 11.

Fantasy Tip: Singleton ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is a high-risk, high-reward player who is just 3-for-24 since being called up and hitless in three career at-bats versus Odorizzi. FantasyScore owners should search for safer fantasy options and avoid using him this afternoon.

Astros | Jon Singleton draws into the lineup

Thu, 09 Jul 2015 13:13:24 -0700

Houston Astros 1B Jon Singleton is starting at first base and batting eighth against Cleveland Indians SP Cody Anderson Thursday, July 9. 1B Chris Carter has been relegated to a bench role Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Singleton ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) owns huge power potential, but he has struggled to reach base consistently during his short career (.279 on-base percentage). FantasyScore players should view him as a high-risk, high-reward option, and with first base being such a deep position, the risk is even greater. Seasonal players should reserve Singleton for AL-only and cavernous mixed leagues, as Carter ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) will likely continue to see the majority of starts at first base.
