Jon Singleton not next in line -- yet
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Astros have another slugging prospect in Triple-A Oklahoma City, but Jon Singleton probably won't be following in George Springer's footsteps just yet. General manager Jeff Luhnow told MLB.com Wednesday he still wants to see Singleton prove himself at the Triple-A level like Springer did.

"We're happy that Singleton is off to a good start," Luhnow said. "He does not have the Triple-A track record that Springer has yet. We feel he needs to develop that track record. We're always going to be in a position where our fans want our top prospects to come up here sooner than we think they're ready to come up here."

Singleton has opened his season with four home runs and 16 RBI while hitting .333 in 12 games for Oklahoma City. Singleton hit just .220/.340/.347 at Triple-A last season, however.

Astros holding off bringing Jon Singleton to the majors
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Now that the Astros have promoted outfield prospect George Springer, the attention will now turn to first-base prospect Jon Singleton, who is off to a promising start at Triple-A Oklahoma City. Singleton is batting .333 with four home runs, five doubles and 16 RBI in 12 games.

However, Astros general manager Jeff Lunhow did his best Wednesday to avoid putting a timetable on Singleton's arrival to the majors.

"We’re happy that Singleton is off to a good start," Luhnow said, per MLB.com. "He does not have the Triple-A track record that Springer has yet. We feel he needs to develop that track record. We’re always going to be in a position where our fans want our top prospects to come up here sooner than we think they’re ready to come up here. Last year, it happened to [Jarred] Cosart. We did bring Cosart up at the right time and when he came up he contributed and helped us win ballgames. He still is showing that deserves to be at this level and is ready to help us win."

Manager not concerned about slow start for Jon Singleton
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Astros manager Bo Porter expressed little concern Sunday about first baseman Jon Singleton's slow start to open up spring training. Singleton is hitless in nine at-bats, which includes three strikeouts and four walks.

"I think he's taking quality at-bats," Porter said, per MLB.com. "The one thing in which Jon and I talked about and [hitting coach John Mallee] is going to get with him today -- he doesn't have to over-swing. You're talking about a guy with tremendous power and he has power to all fields. When you [try] to hit the 500-foot home run instead of hitting the ball hard, sometimes you can miss pitches that you probably could hit.

"Overall, I think his at-bats have been good. I think he's over-swinging right now, trying to make something happen."

Astros will have 'heated competition' for first-base job
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

During an interview with the Houston Chronicle, Astros manager Bo Porter gave no indication who might start at first base. The Astros have plenty of candidates, though, including Brett Wallace, Jesus Guzman, Chris Carter and prospect Jonathan Singleton.

"It’s going to be a heated competition," Porter said. "I like the guys that we have. At the end of the day, I believe that the player that ends up winning the first-base job will obviously make our lineup and make us a better team."
