Astros send Singleton, Chapman to Triple-A; DFA Alex Presley

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/1/15) The Astros have optioned first baseman Jon Singleton and left-hander Kevin Chapman down to Triple-A Fresno, and designated outfielder Alex Presley for assignment, according to the Houston Chronicle on Tuesday.

According to MLB.com, the Astros may try to trade Presley if they are unable to keep him. Presley, 29, slashed .212/.316/.333 with three RBI over 33 spring at-bats.

Singleton, 23, made his debut in 2014 and hit .168 over 310 at-bats in his first season in the majors. He hit .213 this spring.

"There are definitely things I need to improve on," Singleton said. "This move was necessary."

Chapman, 27, registered a 4.64 ERA in his second season in the majors last year. This spring, he posted a 2.16 ERA, a 1.44 WHIP and 10:3 K:BB ratio over 8 1/3 innings.

"I just need to just polish up a little bit," Chapman said.

Astros 1B Jon Singleton working to simplify things at the plate

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/27/15) Astros first baseman Jon Singleton is continuing to progress as a hitter. Singleton has hit .244 so far this spring and manager A.J. Hinch is seeing him get better every day, reports the Houston Chronicle.

"He's working on things to simplify things at the plate, clear his head and take a good pass at the ball and swing at strikes," Hinch said Friday. "Get in a good body posture, making sure that his effort level is at the right consistent. He can swing ferociously with the best of them, and that's not always the best balance swing for him. I think he's trying to find a happy medium on how to try to take his best swing while staying under control. And I think that’s starting to translate into games."

Singleton is getting in the mindset of focusing more at the plate.

"A lot of it is thinking," Singleton said. "You got to get in the box and just let everything go. Let everything that you're working on go. Compete. I think that has a little bit to do with it. I also think it's still early, pitches that I'm missing now I don't think I'm going to miss in May or June. But it’s all a work in progress."

Astros' Hinch on Singleton: 'He's a very, very dangerous hitter'

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/25/15) Astros manager A.J. Hinch indicated Wednesday that first baseman Jon Singleton is making a good case to break camp on the team's 25-man roster, MLB.com reports.

"He's a very, very dangerous hitter, and he knows it, the other teams know it," he said. "He got off to a really hot start in the spring and continues to grind towards the roster spot that's becoming more and more debatable."

The team has the option of going with Chris Carter or Evan Gattis at first base if Singleton doesn't make the team, but he remains unworried about the potential roster crunch.

"I'm still out here playing ball and leaving it all on the field," he said. "I'm just trying to compete."

Singleton has hit .244/.295/.390 while striking out 14 times in 41 at-bats this spring.

Astros' Jon Singleton ready to fight off disappointing 2014 season

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(2/28/15) Astros first baseman Jon Singleton is ready to put the 2014 season in his rear view mirror. Singleton hit a woeful .168 with 13 home runs and 44 RBI in 310 plate appearances in 2014.

"To be honest, I believe the only competition I have is myself," Singleton said. "I feel like I'm the only person who can prevent myself from reaching the potential I need to reach or getting out of the game what I need to get out, but if I prepare and I work and I leave it all out there, there's nothing really else to worry about."

Manager A.J. Hinch thinks Singleton is a threat to hit 30 home runs this year.

"He's done what he needs to do this offseason to come in and improve off of, not only a tremendous Minor League career, but his start to the Major League career last year, which was mixed," general manager Jeff Luhnow said. "My money's on Jon Singleton to do the things he needs to do to make this club."

Astros' Singleton has plan to improve game after rough rookie season

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/25/15) Astros first baseman Jon Singleton had a rough MLB debut in 2014. Not only did he struggle offensively, batting .168 with 134 strikeouts in 95 games, he also made 11 errors. 

It seems, however, Singleton has formulated a plan to make sure his output improves in 2015.

"Just try to take things slow, just day by day, moment by moment, really," Singleton said, per the Houston Chronicle. "I know things I need to work on. Everything's a work in progress, as long as I can take things slow and moment by moment and work on progressing and not the entire picture. I have an effective plan when I go up to the plate. I just have to slow my thoughts down and prepare myself better before I attack."

Although, Singleton still needs to prove this spring he deserves a starting job at the major-league level. He could be sent back to the minors, if he is unable to make an impact this spring.

"Maybe," manager A.J. Hinch said when asked if Singleton needs to receive everyday at-bats. "It's yet to be determined. You want him to play; he's a young player. It probably depends exactly how that breaks down before we determine what's more valuable to Jon Singleton being a great major-league player.

"There's always that debate at the end of the camp if guys are on the bubble. But he's not on the bubble yet. He's right at the beginning of a camp. (First base is) where he's going to be playing for a new coaching staff, a new manager and just being himself -- and taking a deep breath in between at-bats."
