Latest Update Jonathan Singleton hits seventh home run Mon Jul, 28, 09:13 AM
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.
A day with just one strikeout for Singleton should be considered a great day, regardless of his home run here. With 67 whiffs in 184 plate appearances (36.4-percent), Singleton's average has plummeted to a .178 mark and it's getting awfully tough to keep him on a roster, despite the clear power upside. If you have a strong overall team batting average, then he may be usable in deeper leagues as the .172 ISO promises to get better with more experience, but if that average and the strikeouts are going to weigh you down, there are certainly better power options to look into for the season.Analyst: Howard Bender
Singleton has struggled since his call up hitting just .182 with 18 runs, six home runs and 21 RBI. The Astros are in no hurry to make the playoffs and will allow their prospects such as Singleton and Springer to go through growing pains at the major league level in hopes to get them the experience they need to make a run in the coming seasons.Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
This is just a routine day off for Singleton as the Astros face lefty John Danks. Jesus Guzman will bat fifth and play first base.Analyst: David Kerr
A three-run home run is hot, but hitting .181 (19-for-105) with a .281 OBP and 41 strikeouts to 14 walks in 30 games is not. If you can use Singleton's fifth home run of the year to your advantage to help move him then jump on the opportunity.Analyst: Michael Pichan
