Jonathan Singleton released by Astros

The Houston Astros have released first baseman Jonathan Singleton.

Fantasy Impact

Singleton is most known for signing a five year, $10 million contract before ever having played a MLB game. The Astros were of course trying to get a discount on the former top prospect, but it never worked out. Singleton hit .171 in 420 plate appearances at the big league level during his time with the Astros.

Jon Singleton's woes continue in Triple-A debut

Jon Singleton opened up his season with the Fresnk Grizzlies by going 0-for-4 with two strikeouts.

Fantasy Impact

Jon Singleton was brought in by the Astros with hopes he would be the first baseman of the future. Well, that is looking less and less likely with every at-bat. While he still has a ton of home run potential he can't seem to make contact. Singleton is still worth holding on to in deep keeper leagues but other than that he isn't worth a roster spot especially with the emergence of Tyler White and A.J. Reed waiting for a call-up.

Jon Singleton optioned to Triple-A

Astros officially set eight players to minor league camp: Buchanan, Feliz, Heineman, Perez, Reed, Sclafani, Singleton, Valdez.

Fantasy Impact

Tyler White appears to be the Astros Opening Day starter at first base since Singleton has been optioned to the minors. Singleton had an abysmal spring training and did not show any sign of progress. He may be back on the roster later in the season, but he is not worth a roster spot at this time.

Jonathan Singleton homers against Detroit

Jonathan Singleton went 2-for-4 with a two-run double and a solo-homer against the Tigers on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Singleton needs a few more showings like this if he wants to keep his job. The Astros are likely to give Singleton one more shot to start the season, if only to keep incumbent A.J. Reed under team control for an extra year. However, Singleton has shown no ability to succeed at the major league level, and is only a flier in the deepest of mixed and AL-Only formats. Don't expect much.

Jonathan Singleton homers against Toronto

Jonathan Singleton went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and a two run double against the Blue Jays on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Singleton will need a lot more performances of this caliber if he wants to retain the 1B job this season for the 'Stros. It still seems like a matter of time before A.J. Reed takes over, but if Singleton does win the job out of camp it will make him just barely draft worthy in deep AL-Only leagues. Keep monitoring him this Spring to find out.
