Jon Singleton to sit during the weekend
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(9/26/14) Astros first baseman Jon Singleton will be limited to pinch hitting duties this weekend, according to the Houston Chronicle.
Singleton is mired in a slump, and hasn't picked up a hit since September 9. Singleton said the season has been "very hard, very difficult." He added, "when you fail it’s really hard to be positive, but you have to continue to motivate yourself and get up and go do it." Singleton is hitting .168/.287/.336 over 304 at-bats.

|(8/23/14) Astros first baseman Jon Singleton had just one hit Friday against the Indians, but it was a big one in a 5-1 win.
Singleton went 1 for 4 in the game, and his lone hit was a late three-run home run to clinch the game. He scored just once while striking out twice in the game.
Singleton has been a solid power source for the Astros, but contact issues have impacted him as a rookie. He is hitting .187/.290/.374 with 12 home runs and 40 RBI in 70 games.

Jon Singleton shines light in midst of darkness with home run

|(7/30/14) Astros first baseman Jon Singleton has still not achieved a multi-hit game since July 8, but he certainly made the most of his one hit in a Wednesday rout of Oakland. It left the yard for his eighth homer of the season.
The two-run blast in the fifth inning was merely the cherry on top of an 8-1 victory. Singleton has just five hits in his last 44 at-bats.
Jon Singleton hits his seventh home run Sunday
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(7/28/14) Astros first baseman Jon Singleton hit his seventh home run Sunday against the Marlins.
Singleton waited until the ninth inning to strike. With the bases empty in the ninth inning, Singleton hit a 92 mph fastball out to left for a solo shot. He also walked twice earlier in the contest. Singleton finished 1 for 2, with one run scored and one RBI.
|Jonathan Singleton began 2013 neck-and-neck with George Springer in a loaded Astros farm system, with notoriously patient general manager Jeff Luhnow even saying he had a chance of reaching the majors by year's end. But a 50-game suspension for repeated marijuana use put him on the wrong track early, and when he finally returned in late May, he was too eager to make up for lost time, striking out in more than one-third of his at-bats. Granted, he had always struck out at a high rate, but never to the detriment of his batting average. All that swinging and missing also prevented him from tapping into his raw power, which scouts have described as "plus-plus." Singleton has always known how to take a walk and did so with regularity in 2013, giving reason to believe his other numbers will catch up with a fresh start in 2014. He's still enough of a prospect to deserve a flier in AL-only leagues. Given his elite pedigree and the dearth of talent at the major-league level, it's not so far-fetched that he could make the team out of spring training in a Julio Teheran-like, minor-league-numbers-be-darned sort of move, though the perennially rebuilding Astros have every reason to give him a chance to master Triple-A first.
