Astros | Jon Singleton sent down by Houston

Mon, 28 Mar 2016 11:04:12 -0700

Houston Astros 1B Jon Singleton was optioned to the minors Monday, March 28, which likely leaves 1B Tyler White as the starting first baseman.

Fantasy Tip: This shouldn't come as a huge surprise. Singleton has always had power potential, but he never could cut it at the major league level. Now he has both White and A.J. Reed ahead of him. Singleton should be ignored everywhere.

Astros | Tyler White to win 1B job?

Wed, 23 Mar 2016 12:26:22 -0700

Houston Astros 1B Tyler White has impressed scouts this spring, and he could definitely be the Astros' starting first baseman to begin the year. "(He's) making a great push to potentially make our team, and he's doing everything that he can do to make a good impression. His quality of at-bats are very good," manager A.J. Hinch said. "He doesn't go outside of the strike zone very often. He doesn't pull off the ball very often." White is hitting .371 with a .452 on-base percentage, .514 slugging percentage and a home run in 35 spring at-bats. 1B Jon Singleton, on the other hand, is hitting .146 in 18 games and 41 at-bats.

Fantasy Tip: White's skills could certainly be used on a Houston squad that whiffs often and doesn't reach base all that consistently. It's time to put White on the deep sleeper list in deep mixed and AL-only leagues, and he'll have more value in on-base percentage leagues.

Astros | Jon Singleton bulked up

Mon, 22 Feb 2016 09:49:28 -0800

Houston Astros 1B Jon Singleton is at 250 pounds of muscle this spring after he played at around 235 pounds last year.

Fantasy Tip: First base is Singelton's job to lose this spring. He has big-time power and has made small gains in contact at just 24 years old. However, he still strikes out way too much. He's a high-risk, high-reward late-rounds gamble in deep mixed affairs.

Astros | Luis Valbuena, Jon Singleton to have big roles

Tue, 08 Dec 2015 16:31:05 -0800

Houston Astros 3B Luis Valbuena will play every day next year either at third base or first base, according to general manager Jeff Luhnow. Luhnow also said first base was 1B Jon Singleton's position to lose.

Fantasy Tip: Valbuena was all or nothing in 2015, hitting just .224 but slugging 25 home runs in 434 at-bats. He's not guaranteed 20-plus homers again in Houston, and he's best utilized for his power in deeper mixed leagues. Singleton has yet to hit above .200 in his two limited seasons in the bigs, but he still has plenty of upside, mainly with his power. He's worth a low-cost investment in deeper leagues at the tail end of drafts.

Astros | Jon Singleton back in the majors

Wed, 23 Sep 2015 09:21:51 -0700

Houston Astros 1B Jon Singleton was called up from the minors Wednesday, Sept. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Singleton is one of Houston's more promising young players, but he hasn't panned out in the majors so far after hitting only .205 (9-for-44) with one home run and six RBI when he was called up earlier this year. With the 'Stros battling for a playoff spot and time running out in the regular season, it's unlikely we'll see much of Singleton this time around.

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.
