Houston Astros 1B Jon Singleton is "making a push to factor into the major league roster," manager A.J. Hinch said Thursday, May 14.
Fantasy Tip: Singleton was feast or famine at the dish last season during his major league debut. He hit 13 home runs but struck out 134 times over 362 plate appearances and sported an unimpressive .168/.285/.335 slash line. So far this season with Class AAA Fresno (Calif.), he has 25 runs, 11 home runs, 35 RBI with a .274/.386/.632 slash line. Singleton's power potential would be worth adding in all deep mixed and AL-only seasonal leagues.

Houston Astros 1B Jon Singleton was optioned to Triple-A Fresno Wednesday, April 1.
Fantasy Tip: Singleton has plenty of power potential and is worth keeping in the back of your mind for a call-up. Chris Carter ($5,100, 10.2% of your cap) will likely be at first base and is a daily consideration on FantasyScore.

Houston Astros 1B Jon Singleton worked closely with hitting coach John Mallee Monday, July 28, in the batting cages. Mallee said the results were "absolutely amazing" and said now it's a matter of Singleton trusting it enough to use in games. "I'm trying to get the big-muscle-bodyness out of his swing and trying to get him more direct to the ball, shorten his path," Mallee said. "He's been overswinging and hitting long. We came out and did some tee work on the field and some flips and some high-velocity sport pitch to where the ball is on him almost at the same reaction time as it is in the game."
Fantasy Tip: Singleton has plenty of power, but he has posted a poor .178 average in 163 at-bats since his recall. He is a promising talent, and a must-have in long-term keeper fantasy formats, but right now he is not helping anyone in re-draft leagues.
