Latest Update Jonathan Singleton is not in the Astros' starting lineup Wednesday. Wed Sep, 24, 06:02 PM
Has a great bat with big-time power and run-producing potential. Is also a sneaky baserunner, capable of stealing a few bases here and there. Is a perfect target at first base at 6-2, 235 pounds.
Flaws: : Must keep the strikeout totals down in order to maximize his vast potential with the stick. Also, he needs to cut down on his number of errors with the glove, since he is a little below-average.
He's batting just .168 on the year and has only seen three at-bats in the last five games. His absence shouldn't be a surprise. Chris Carter is at first base Wednesday.Analyst: Howard Bender
The Astros are going to sit Singleton because they are facing a left handed starting pitcher.Analyst: Mark Kaplan
Singleton will sit for the second straight game Saturday. Hopefully the day off will help clear his mind, as he's been dreadful so far in September, lowering his season average to .169.Analyst: Ben Diamond
Although Singleton has shown great signs of power upside since his promotion this summer, he is slashing a mere .181/.297/.362 through 282 at-bats in his first year with the Astros. However, he has shown some discipline in between his 115 strikeouts, taking 46 walks, but until he shows more consistency at the plate he should be reserved to AL-only leagues moving forward.
