Astros' Jon Singleton has 27 RBI in last 10 games at Triple-A
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Astros first baseman Jon Singleton homered again Thursday for Triple-A Fresno, giving him six in his last 10 games and a minor-league leading 13 on the season. Singleton also has 44 RBI in 39 games, with 27 coming in his last 10 games.

"He's locked in right now. He's been having great at-bats, swinging at good pitches," Fresno teammate Carlos Correa said, per MiLB.com. "He's doing the work he needs to do to be successful on the field, and he can be proud of what he's bringing to the table. He's going to bring a lot to the Houston Astros eventually."

Singleton is batting .295 with a .406 on-base percentage, .651 slugging percentage and 1.056 OPS this season.

Astros' Jon Singleton racking up home runs in Triple-A
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Astros first baseman Jon Singleton has slugged 12 home runs in 133 at-bats with Triple-A Fresno.

Singleton has particularly picked things up in May, racking up eight home runs in the span of 11 games. He's shown plenty of patience at the plate as well, drawing 26 walks while striking out 31 times. Singleton doesn't have a clear path to playing time in the majors, but the team will likely be looking to give him a shot at first base at some point after he struggled last year in his rookie season.

Astros send Singleton, Chapman to Triple-A; DFA Alex Presley
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

The Astros have optioned first baseman Jon Singleton and left-hander Kevin Chapman down to Triple-A Fresno, and designated outfielder Alex Presley for assignment, according to the Houston Chronicle on Tuesday.

According to MLB.com, the Astros may try to trade Presley if they are unable to keep him. Presley, 29, slashed .212/.316/.333 with three RBI over 33 spring at-bats.

Singleton, 23, made his debut in 2014 and hit .168 over 310 at-bats in his first season in the majors. He hit .213 this spring.

"There are definitely things I need to improve on," Singleton said. "This move was necessary."

Chapman, 27, registered a 4.64 ERA in his second season in the majors last year. This spring, he posted a 2.16 ERA, a 1.44 WHIP and 10:3 K:BB ratio over 8 1/3 innings.

"I just need to just polish up a little bit," Chapman said.

Astros 1B Jon Singleton working to simplify things at the plate
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Astros first baseman Jon Singleton is continuing to progress as a hitter. Singleton has hit .244 so far this spring and manager A.J. Hinch is seeing him get better every day, reports the Houston Chronicle.

"He's working on things to simplify things at the plate, clear his head and take a good pass at the ball and swing at strikes," Hinch said Friday. "Get in a good body posture, making sure that his effort level is at the right consistent. He can swing ferociously with the best of them, and that's not always the best balance swing for him. I think he's trying to find a happy medium on how to try to take his best swing while staying under control. And I think that’s starting to translate into games."

Singleton is getting in the mindset of focusing more at the plate.

"A lot of it is thinking," Singleton said. "You got to get in the box and just let everything go. Let everything that you're working on go. Compete. I think that has a little bit to do with it. I also think it's still early, pitches that I'm missing now I don't think I'm going to miss in May or June. But it’s all a work in progress."

Astros' Hinch on Singleton: 'He's a very, very dangerous hitter'
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Astros manager A.J. Hinch indicated Wednesday that first baseman Jon Singleton is making a good case to break camp on the team's 25-man roster, MLB.com reports.

"He's a very, very dangerous hitter, and he knows it, the other teams know it," he said. "He got off to a really hot start in the spring and continues to grind towards the roster spot that's becoming more and more debatable."

The team has the option of going with Chris Carter or Evan Gattis at first base if Singleton doesn't make the team, but he remains unworried about the potential roster crunch.

"I'm still out here playing ball and leaving it all on the field," he said. "I'm just trying to compete."

Singleton has hit .244/.295/.390 while striking out 14 times in 41 at-bats this spring.
