Houston Astros 1B Jon Singleton is mired in an 0-for-10 slump and did not start for the second game in a row Monday, Sept. 15. Singleton is hitting .168 since the All-Star break, and interim manager Tom Lawless believes it is a result of a lack of confidence.

Houston Astros 1B Jon Singleton worked closely with hitting coach John Mallee Monday, July 28, in the batting cages. Mallee said the results were "absolutely amazing" and said now it's a matter of Singleton trusting it enough to use in games. "I'm trying to get the big-muscle-bodyness out of his swing and trying to get him more direct to the ball, shorten his path," Mallee said. "He's been overswinging and hitting long. We came out and did some tee work on the field and some flips and some high-velocity sport pitch to where the ball is on him almost at the same reaction time as it is in the game."
Fantasy Tip: Singleton has plenty of power, but he has posted a poor .178 average in 163 at-bats since his recall. He is a promising talent, and a must-have in long-term keeper fantasy formats, but right now he is not helping anyone in re-draft leagues.

The Houston Astros will recall 1B Jon Singleton from Triple-A Oklahoma City for their game Tuesday, June 3.
Fantasy Tip: Singleton is one of this year's top prospects in all of baseball. He has a natural swing from the left side that will generate plenty of power at the next level, especially while taking his hacks in Houston. He should be added in all formats immediately, and he should play at least semi-regularly the rest of the way.
