Astros | Jon Singleton sent down by Houston

Mon, 28 Mar 2016 11:04:12 -0700

Houston Astros 1B Jon Singleton was optioned to the minors Monday, March 28, which likely leaves 1B Tyler White as the starting first baseman.

Fantasy Tip: This shouldn't come as a huge surprise. Singleton has always had power potential, but he never could cut it at the major league level. Now he has both White and A.J. Reed ahead of him. Singleton should be ignored everywhere.

Astros | Tyler White to win 1B job?

Wed, 23 Mar 2016 12:26:22 -0700

Houston Astros 1B Tyler White has impressed scouts this spring, and he could definitely be the Astros' starting first baseman to begin the year. "(He's) making a great push to potentially make our team, and he's doing everything that he can do to make a good impression. His quality of at-bats are very good," manager A.J. Hinch said. "He doesn't go outside of the strike zone very often. He doesn't pull off the ball very often." White is hitting .371 with a .452 on-base percentage, .514 slugging percentage and a home run in 35 spring at-bats. 1B Jon Singleton, on the other hand, is hitting .146 in 18 games and 41 at-bats.

Fantasy Tip: White's skills could certainly be used on a Houston squad that whiffs often and doesn't reach base all that consistently. It's time to put White on the deep sleeper list in deep mixed and AL-only leagues, and he'll have more value in on-base percentage leagues.

Astros | Jon Singleton bulked up

Mon, 22 Feb 2016 09:49:28 -0800

Houston Astros 1B Jon Singleton is at 250 pounds of muscle this spring after he played at around 235 pounds last year.

Fantasy Tip: First base is Singelton's job to lose this spring. He has big-time power and has made small gains in contact at just 24 years old. However, he still strikes out way too much. He's a high-risk, high-reward late-rounds gamble in deep mixed affairs.

Astros | Luis Valbuena, Jon Singleton to have big roles

Tue, 08 Dec 2015 16:31:05 -0800

Houston Astros 3B Luis Valbuena will play every day next year either at third base or first base, according to general manager Jeff Luhnow. Luhnow also said first base was 1B Jon Singleton's position to lose.

Fantasy Tip: Valbuena was all or nothing in 2015, hitting just .224 but slugging 25 home runs in 434 at-bats. He's not guaranteed 20-plus homers again in Houston, and he's best utilized for his power in deeper mixed leagues. Singleton has yet to hit above .200 in his two limited seasons in the bigs, but he still has plenty of upside, mainly with his power. He's worth a low-cost investment in deeper leagues at the tail end of drafts.
