Jonathan Singleton 1B HOU 17 Days

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.

Jon Singleton went 2-for-6 with a grand slam as the Astros pounded the Twins 14-5 on Sunday.

Singleton's ninth inning blast was the second grand slam of the game for the Astros, following Chris Carter's shot in the seventh. It was the first baseman's second home run in six games since being recalled, with all six of his runs batted in coming on homers. It's been an up and down first week, as he's hitting just .200 with a .231 on-base percentage and a 10/1 K/BB ratio to go along with the two bombs.

Jon Singleton homered in his major league debut, and the Astros beat the Angels 7-2 on Tuesday.

Singleton looked silly in striking out against C.J. Wilson in his first major league at-bat, but the first baseman worked a bases-loaded walk for his first RBI as part of the Astros' five-run third inning. Later, with the bases empty, Singleton launched a Matt Shoemaker pitch to right field for his first big league blast. Enough hype surrounded his promotion that he's likely been snatched up in most leagues, but he's worth a flyer for his power potential in any leagues where he's still on the wire.

Astros signed 1B Jon Singleton to a five-year, $10 million contract extension.

The deal also includes three club options and can be worth up to $35 million if all the options and incentives are triggered. It's a nice safety net for Singleton, but it will wind up being an extremely club-friendly deal if he comes anywhere close to reaching his ceiling. Singleton will make his major league debut on Tuesday.

According to Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports, the Astros have signed top first base prospect Jonathan Singleton to a five-year contract with three club options.

The historic deal -- a first for a player with zero major league service time -- carries $10 million in guaranteed money and can be worth up to $35 million if all the options and incentives are triggered. Singleton, 22, will be promoted from Triple-A Oklahoma City before Tuesday's game against the Angels to take over as Houston's regular first baseman. He was sporting a .941 OPS, 14 home runs, and 43 RBI in 54 games this year at Triple-A and should be owned in all mixed fantasy leagues.

Astros prospect 1B Jonathan Singleton went 2-for-5 with his 13th home run of the season on Monday for Triple-A Oklahoma City.

The long ball was Singleton's first since May 12, and it pulled him out of an 11-game skid during which he batted .158 with zero extra-base hits and 12 strikeouts. Overall, the 22-year-old is batting .272/.392/.550 with nine doubles, 39 RBI and a 49/36 strikeout-to-walk ratio through 49 games. He figures to be the next Astros prospect to join George Springer in the major leagues, possibly as soon as next month.

That's presumably when the time will be right. Singleton, 22, is batting .293/.401/.629 with 12 home runs and 34 RBI in 38 games this year at Triple-A.
