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.

Jon Singleton has been working with hitting coach John Mallee on shortening his swing.

Mallee said the results so far have been "absolutely amazing" and Singleton just has to trust his new swing in game action. "I'm trying to get better each and every day," Singleton said. "I'm trying to make small adjustments and trying to adjust to what they throw me and stuff like that and trying to time the ball better. Nothing too major. Just daily adjustments." Singleton has homered seven times but is batting just .178 in 163 at-bats with the big club.

Jon Singleton hit his seventh home run of the season in Sunday's loss to the Marlins.

Singleton took Marlins closer Steve Cishek deep in the ninth inning, just the second home run Cishek has allowed this season. It was Singleton's only hit in two at-bats, as he also walked twice. He's got seven home runs in 46 games but has struggled mightily at the dish, hitting .178/.266/.350 in his first taste of major league pitching.

Jon Singleton went 3-for-4 with a three-run homer, an RBI double and a walk as the Astros topped the Rangers 12-7 on Monday.

Singleton's best-game to date. In fact, he had as many hits tonight as in his previous 10 games combined. But while Singleton is batting just .188, he has six homers and 20 RBI in 33 games for the Astros. He should only get better.

Jon Singleton launched a solo home run Friday against the Rays.

It was the only offense of the night for the Astros. Singleton is hitting .250 (11-for-44) with four home runs and 10 RBI over his first 11 games in the majors. We're not counting on much in the batting average department for the rookie, but the power should make him relevant in fantasy leagues.
