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' Luhnow: Evan Gattis will mostly DH, play left field
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow said Thursday that Evan Gattis will mostly play left field and serve as the team's designated hitter but could see some work at catcher as well, MLB.com reports.

"He will catch some, probably later in season," Luhnow said.

Gattis will slot in as the team's third catcher in addition to his regular role after coming to the team from the Braves this past offseason. He's 8 for 20 with one home run and two walks this spring.

Astros P Brady Aiken says he had Tommy John surgery
by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com

Astros pitcher Brady Aiken took to Twitter to announce that he had Tommy John surgery on Wednesday. 

Aiken talked about the surgery and what he'll have to overcome in a piece on theplayerstribune.com. 

"Yesterday, I had Tommy John surgery to fix my left arm. I’m obviously extremely disappointed. I wanted to let my pitching speak for itself, but now there are going to be new distractions. For that reason, I wanted to be the one to tell people what’s happened and make this a fresh start.

"When I visited the doctor’s office and got the news I had torn my UCL, I can’t even begin to express how I felt. I was — and still am — overwhelmed with a lot of different feelings, but mostly it’s disappointment. I won’t be able to pitch this season, and this is going to keep me from doing what I love most of all — competing. It’s going to be frustrating, and not just from a baseball perspective. When it’s 90 degrees at home in Cardiff and the waves are perfect and I can’t surf, that’ll be tough, too. I know the road ahead will be full of patience and hard work, and I’m ready for that challenge."

Aiken was the first overall pick by the Astros in 2014.
