Jonathan Singleton 1B HOU 3 Months

Singleton is not expected to start any of the Astros' final three games, the Houston Chronicle reports.

Singleton's last hit came all the way back on Sept. 9, as he's 0-for-his-last-23 with 18 strikeouts over that span. The 23-year-old admitted that it's been a "very difficult" way to his end his rookie campaign, and he'll likely be relegated to pinch-hit duty for the entire Mets series, unless Chris Carter's nagging lower-back injury presents issues. Singleton has hit just .168/.287/.336 with 13 homers and 133 strikeouts in 92 games with the big club, after inking a long-term extension with the team in early June.

Singleton is out of the Astros' lineup again Saturday.

Singleton will ride the pine for a second straight day, following a 4-for-37 start to September. The 23-year-old has struggled to adjust to major league pitching (.169 average), but it seems likely he'll open 2015 in an everyday role, after inking a long-term extension with the club in June.

Singleton is out of the lineup Friday against the Mariners.

Singleton will get a day off following an 0-for-4 night at the plate Tuesday, wearing the golden sombrero with four strikeouts. He has been floundering at the plate recently, and is currently riding a 0-for-19 skid at the plate with 15 strikeouts over his past seven games. Chris Carter gets the start at first base while Jose Altuve takes the designated hitter spot for Friday's contest.

Singleton is out of the lineup Saturday.

He hit his 13th home run of the season Friday, but 13 of his 49 hits have gone for homers, and he really shows no signs of getting his average over .200 (currently at .179) this season. Jesus Guzman will get the start at first base.

Singleton is out of the lineup Saturday against the Rangers.

Singleton will take a seat with a five-game hitless streak in hand, though he did draw five walks during that span. He'll be relieved at first base, at least for a day, by Jesus Guzman.

Singleton is out of the lineup Wednesday against the A's.

With lefty Drew Pomeranz on the hill for Oakland, Singleton will head to the bench for the second time in four games, opening the door for Jesus Guzman to start at first base. Singleton is batting just .186/.296/.372 with the big club this season, and while his struggles have mostly come against right-handed pitching (.160/.280/.326), manager Bo Porter may be inclined to further limit Singleton's exposure to lefties over the remainder of the season.

Singleton is not in Saturday's lineup, the Houston Chronicle's Jose de Jesus Ortiz reports.

The rookie first baseman has been playing everyday despite still sporting a sub-.200 batting average. While he still offers plenty of upside over the rest of the season for owners looking for some help in home runs, he's going to be a drain on batting average in roto leagues. Jesus Guzman will get the start at first base.
