  • Astros' Jon Singleton: Goes yard in Tuesday's win

    Singleton went 1-for-2 with a two-run home homer and two walks in Tuesday's 6-5 win over the Angels.

    Singleton tied the ballgame up in the sixth with a 432-foot blast to center field for his fifth home run of the year and his first since May 9. He now has six hits and four RBI over his last five games and continues to step up with the Astros looking for production at first base after Jose Abreu's early season struggles, though it's worth noting that Abreu is expected to return to the team soon following some time in the minors. The 32-year-old Singleton is now slashing .229/.336/.385 with 14 RBI, 17 runs and an 18:30 BB:K in 128 plate appearances.

  • Astros' Jon Singleton: Productive across weekend series

    Singleton went 2-for-4 with two RBI and a walk Sunday against the Brewers.

    Singleton enjoyed a productive weekend series against the Brewers, collecting five hits across 12 at-bats while scoring a run and driving in two. He's started 18 of the last 19 games since the demotion of Jose Abreu and has hit .230 with a .342 OBP to go along with four homers, 12 RBI and 13 runs scored. Abreu could rejoin the team within the week, but Singleton has made the case to maintain playing time with his production across May.

  • Astros' Jon Singleton: Not in Wednesday's lineup

    Singleton is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Athletics.

    Singleton has taken over as the Astros' regular first baseman since Jose Abreu's demotion, but he'll begin Wednesday's contest on the bench. Mauricio Dubon will fill in for Singleton at first base.

  • Astros' Jon Singleton: Launches two-run homer

    Singleton went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run against the Yankees in Thursday's 4-3 win.

    Singleton's long ball was a first-inning, two-run shot that traveled an estimated 442 feet and gave the Astros a 3-0 lead. It was his fourth homer over a nine-game stretch that has helped him take over the starting role at first base that was made available when Jose Abreu was demoted to the minors. Singleton's recent playing time and power surge has put him on the radar in mixed fantasy leagues.

  • Astros' Jon Singleton: Showing power in regular role

    Singleton went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run Sunday against the Mariners.

    Singleton has started six straight games since Jose Abreu was optioned to the minors and has tallied all three of his home runs for the season in that span. He's gone 6-for-20 overall across those six contests while striking out at just an 8.7 percent clip. With Abreu out of the picture and Joey Loperfido getting his playing time in the outfield, Singleton appears to have the first base job to himself for the foreseeable future.

  • Astros' Jon Singleton: Settling in as regular first baseman

    Singleton will start at first base and bat sixth in Sunday's game against the Mariners, Matt Kawahara of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Rather than Singleton, the recent arrival of prospect Joey Loperfido from Triple-A Sugar Land has been most detrimental to outfielders Mauricio Dubon and Jake Meyers. In fact, with Jose Abreu getting optioned to the minors and with Loperfido seeing all of his opportunities to date in left field and center field, Singleton has settled into a regular role at first base for Houston. He'll stay in the lineup for a sixth straight contest after going 4-for-16 with a pair of home runs and walks over the previous five games.

  • Astros' Jon Singleton: Knocks in three runs Thursday

    Singleton went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run, an additional run and an additional RBI in Thursday's 8-2 win against the Guardians.

    Singleton gave Houston its first lead with a two-run blast in the sixth inning and plated the team's final run with a sacrifice fly in the seventh. The first baseman has gone deep in two of his past three games, driving in six runs over that span. Though Joey Loperfido was called up Tuesday in correspondence with Jose Abreu being demoted to the minors Wednesday, the rookie has made both of his starts thus far in left field. As such, Singleton could have a path to near-everyday playing time at first base moving forward.

  • Astros' Jon Singleton: Smacks first homer

    Singleton went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run, a walk and two runs scored in Tuesday's 10-9 win over the Guardians.

    Singleton was somewhat surprisingly in the lineup and starting at first base despite the promotion of Joey Loperfido. Singleton began his day with a walk before coming around to score in the third inning, and he followed that up one plate appearance with his first home run of the campaign. He has the chance to see additional at-bats at first base with Jose Abreu demoted to the minors and Loperfido picking up at least some starts in the outfield. However, for Singleton to log regular plate appearances, he'll need to improve upon his .239/.327/.348 line.

  • Astros' Jon Singleton: Hits bench in second straight

    Singleton is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rockies in Mexico City, Matt Kawahara of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    The lefty-hitting Singleton seems to have moved into the strong side of a platoon at first base of late with the struggling Jose Abreu, though Abreu got the start in Saturday's 12-4 win against Rockies right-hander Cal Quantrill. After going 2-for-5 with two RBI in the win, Abreu will stick in the lineup Sunday against southpaw Austin Gomber. It's unclear if the Astros plan to bring Singleton back in the starting nine the next time they face off against a righty.

  • Astros' Jon Singleton: Takes advantage of rare start

    Singleton went 2-for-4 with a run scored Wednesday against the Cubs.

    He was in the lineup for the ninth time this season while filling in for Jose Abreu at first base. Singleton managed his second multi-hit performance of the campaign and is hitting .256 across 43 plate appearances. Even with Abreu's struggles this season, Singleton looks unlikely to pick up significant playing time.

  • Astros' Jon Singleton: Fills in for resting Abreu

    Singleton will start at first base and bat sixth in Wednesday's game against the Blue Jays, Matt Kawahara of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Despite posting a lowly .500 OPS in spring training, Singleton was able to secure a spot on Houston's Opening Day roster as a bench bat. Singleton will pick up his second start of the season Wednesday, spelling a resting Jose Abreu at first base.

  • Astros' Jon Singleton: Could land on Opening Day roster

    Singleton is out of minor-league options and could have the first chance on the big-league roster as a result, Chandler Rome of The Athletic reports.

    Singleton had a standout game in which he hit two home runs and drove in five on Aug. 11, but his 105-plate appearance sample in the majors last year was otherwise unproductive. He maintained just a .165/.267/.264 line, though his 0.57 BB/K and .194 BABIP suggest he may have deserved better results. Singleton's most direct competition for a spot on the roster is likely to be the recently acquired Trey Cabbage.

  • Astros' Jon Singleton: Secures spot on ALDS roster

    Singleton is on the Astros' roster for the ALDS, Chandler Rome of The Athletic reports.

    Singleton slashed .194/.301/.323 across 73 plate appearances with the Astros during the regular season and will continue to serve as Jose Abreu's primary backup at first base in the playoffs. Singleton is 6-for-22 with two homers and six RBI against lefties, so he could draw a few at-bats whenever Minnesota sends a southpaw to the mound.

  • Astros' Jon Singleton: Losing work to Diaz

    Singleton is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Red Sox.

    Since his big two-homer, five-RBI effort in a 11-3 win over the Angels on Aug. 11, Singleton has fallen into a 1-for-25 rut at the plate over his subsequent eight contests. Though Jose Abreu (back) remains on the injured list and without a clear timeline for a return, Singleton's ongoing slump may have cost him his role as the Astros' primary first baseman. Singleton will hit the bench for the second time in three games while the hot-hitting Yainer Diaz picks up another start at first base at his expense.

  • Astros' Jon Singleton: Scores twice

    Singleton went 1-for-3 with two walks and two runs scored Wednesday against the Marlins.

    Singleton has started every game since Aug. 10, when Jose Abreu (back) was placed on the injured list. He's struggled for the majority of that stretch, collecting only four hits in 25 at-bats. While Singleton has run into some bad luck -- he's struck out at only an 11.5 percent clip -- his playing time will almost certainly dry up as soon as Abreu can return, which is likely to occur Sunday.

  • Astros' Jon Singleton: Parties like it's 2015

    Singleton went 3-for-4 with two homers, five RBI and three runs scored in Friday's 11-3 win over the Angels.

    The two blasts marked Singleton's first big-league home runs in more than eight years. The 31-year-old was called up Aug. 8 and was making his second consecutive start for the Astros in place of an injured Jose Abreu (back). Prior to a previous stint this year with the Brewers, Singleton hadn't played in the majors since October 2015. His return is a great story, but he'll likely have difficulty carving out a regular role over the final two months of the season.

  • Astros' Jon Singleton: Selected to MLB roster

    The Astros selected Singleton's contract from Triple-A Sugar Land on Tuesday, Matt Kawahara of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Singleton had slashed .333/.446/.692 with 12 home runs and 28 RBI through 33 games this summer for Sugar Land. He is not in the starting lineup Tuesday against the Orioles and could struggle to carve out regular playing time, but the 31-year-old should be a useful bat off the bench. He last appeared in a major-league game for the Astros way back in 2015, but he did suit up for 11 games with the Brewers earlier this season and produced a .103/.188/.138 slash line across 32 plate appearances over 11 games.

  • Astros' Jon Singleton: Set to be recalled Tuesday

    Singleton is expected to be recalled from Triple-A Sugar Land on Tuesday, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

    It has been eight years since Singleton last played for the Astros, but it appears he will get a chance to show what he can do at the top level for the first time since rejoining Houston in late June. Singleton appeared in 11 big-league games with the Brewers earlier this year but posted just a .326 OPS.

  • Astros' Jon Singleton: Back with Astros

    Singleton signed a minor-league contract with the Astros on Saturday, Chandler Rome of The Athletic reports.

    Singleton's less-than-stellar .103/.188/.138 slash line through 11 games with Milwaukee prompted the Brewers to designate him for assignment June 17. Now, Singleton will rejoin the Astros -- the same team he debuted with in 2014 -- and provide organizational depth at first base. Barring injuries, Singleton's chances to return to the majors this season are low.
