The Houston Astros have promoted prospects SP Jarred Cosart and SS Jonathan Villar recently. Top prospects OF George Springer and 1B Jonathan Singleton remain at Triple-A Oklahoma City, but they are expected to join the Astros during the final 65 games of a season devoted to player development and evaluation.
Fantasy Tip: For now, Springer and Singleton are only worth roster spots in the deepest of long-term fantasy keeper leagues, and they'll be worth adding in AL-only leagues if and when they are summoned.

The Houston Astros are set to promote top prospect OF Jonathan Singleton to Triple-A Oklahoma City.
Fantasy Tip: Singleton is the team's top hitting prospect, and he was a key member of the trade which sent Hunter Pence (now with the Giants) to the Philadelphia Phillies in the summer of 2011. Singleton is a great long-term keeper prospect, and he might see time in the majors in September.
