Astros' Jonathan Singleton: Assigned to Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Singleton was assigned to Double-A Corpus Christi to open the regular season, the Houston Chronicle's Jake Kaplan reports.

Singleton has already been removed from the Astros' 40-man roster, but he will still make $2 million this season in the penultimate year of the extension he signed in 2014. With A.J. Reed set to be the everyday first baseman at Triple-A, Singleton will need to go down to Double-A, a level he has not played at since 2013, in order to get everyday at-bats. It's unclear how Singleton's career would have been different if he never signed that extension, but it has worked as something of a gift and a curse, as he will need to wait two years to get a fresh start in a different organization unless the Astros are willing to buy him out.

Astros' Jonathan Singleton: Headed back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Singleton has been reassigned to minor league camp, MLB.com's Brian McTaggart reports.

Singleton was 4-for-21 at the plate during Grapefruit League play, scoring three runs and driving in two during what will end up being a short spring. The next step for the 25-year-old, who was removed from the team's 40-man roster in April, remains to be seen. Singleton should still get some run at Triple-A Fresno, but after hitting just .202 and striking out at a 24.8 percent clip last year, he'll need to quickly turn things around in order to even keep his job there.

Astros' Jonathan Singleton: Off 40-man roster, what's next?
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Singleton, who was removed from the Astros' 40-man roster during the offseason, may find playing time at Triple-A Fresno difficult to come by, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Singleton dropped off the map last season, hitting just .202 at Fresno and never reaching the majors. A former top prospect, the 25-year-old first baseman will be challenged by younger prospects A.J. Reed and Tyler White.

Astros' Jonathan Singleton: Outrighted to Triple-A Fresno
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Singleton cleared waivers and was sent outright to Triple-A Fresno on Tuesday, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.

As expected, the former top prospect will remain an Astro farmhand after no teams were interested in picking up a bat that hasn't produced a major league batting average above .200. Singleton's power is intriguing, but he'll be nothing more than an organizational depth piece until he can make more contact.

Astros' Jonathan Singleton: Placed on outright waivers
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Singleton was placed on outright waivers by the Astros on Saturday, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Kaplan predicts that Singleton will clear waivers and be sent to Triple-A Fresno, an understandable thought given that Singleton is still owed $4.5 million. In 420 career plate appearances, the former top prospect has hit an anemic .171/.290/.331 with 151 strikeouts, which simply does not belong in a major league lineup. Blocked at first base and designated hitter by a combination of Yulieski Gurriel, Brian McCann, A.J. Reed, and Tyler White, it's unlikely Singleton sees significant time in the majors any time in the near future.
