|Prospect Jonathan Singleton to start at Class A|
|by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com|
(5/19/13) Astros top prospect Jonathan Singleton is almost finished with his 50-game suspension for a second failed drug test, MLB.com reports Sunday. He will begin his season next week at Class A Quad Cities.
Singleton is expected to move quickly to Triple-A Oklahoma City as the top prospect in the organization, as ranked by MLB.com.
The left-handed hitting first baseman hit .284 with 21 homers and 79 RBI over 131 games with Double-A Corpus Christi. He could push for playing time with Houston later this year.

(3/28/13) Astros first base prospect Jonathan Singleton, who will begin the year in Triple-A, gave a glimpse into what the future might hold for Houston Thursday. Singleton, who is considered a top-100 prospect by Baseball America (No. 27) and MLB.com (No. 27), homered twice off Tigers starting pitcher Anibal Sanchez in an 11-4 spring win.
"I was just going out there trying to do my best," Singleton said to MLB.com. "He left a couple of pitches over the plate and I tried to put a good swing on it."
Singleton will remain in Florida through the end of May as he finishes off a 50-game suspension for failing a second drug test. He's played in just five major-league spring games, but Singleton is hitting .300 (3 for 10) with a triple, two homers, two walks and six RBI.

(3/27/13) Astros first base prospect Jonathan Singleton revealed Wednesday that he'll start the year at Triple-A Oklahoma City, according to the Houston Chronicle. Singleton must serve a 50-game suspension for testing positive for marijuana. He has just one hit (a triple) in seven plate appearances this spring after going 0 for 4 against the Mets Wednesday and playing first base in a game where the Astros rested many of their regulars.
|GM: Singleton could arrive in 2013|

(1/25/13) Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow said Friday that first base prospect Jonathan Singleton could make his major-league debut during the upcoming season despite his recent suspension. Singleton, considered the team's top prospect, will be suspended for the first 50 games of the season after testing positive for marijuana. He will be able to participate in Houston's minor-league camp and could appear in some Grapefruit League games. "I think we've always thought this is the year Jonathan Singleton probably gets to the big leagues, whether it's the beginning, middle or end of the season," Luhnow told MLB.com. "I think he's got a good shot. If he stays healthy and continues to produce, he'll be there."
|Singleton suspended for marijuana|

(1/9/13) Astros first base prospect Jonathan Singleton, who was expected to be in the running for a roster spot this spring, has tested positive for marijuana and will be suspended for the first 50 games of 2013, according to ESPN.com. Singleton apologized in a statement Wednesday. "The Astros have been nothing but supportive of me and good to me in my short time with the organization," the 21-year-old said. "My hope is to use this as a learning experience and spend the rest of my career proving to myself and the baseball community that this was a lapse in judgment, and is not in any way indicative of my character or my dedication to baseball or to my team.''
2012 Draft Prep: Top 50 Fantasy prospects
Which prospects should you circle on your Draft Day cheat sheets in 2012? Our Scott White unveils his Top 50 prospects and identifies which players will make an impact on your Fantasy teams this summer.
|The biggest thing Jonathan Singleton has going for him right now is that the Astros' roster -- the major-league one -- looks like something an owner puts together when he wants to move the team to Miami. As difficult of a time as the Astros had filling out a lineup in 2012, they actually have one more spot to fill now that they're in the American League. Singleton is only 21 and has yet to play a game above Double-A, so asking him to fill a void at this stage of his development is rushing things, to say the least. But the Astros are at least entertaining the possibility. Singleton projects as a fixture in their lineup long-term. With his size, he should generate good power in his prime, and he has a good grasp of the strike zone for a player his age. Still, you have reason to wonder if he's capable of handling major-league pitching right now. If a job seems to be his for the taking in spring training, he'll get some late-round looks in mixed leagues, but for the most part, he's better left for long-term keeper formats. (Updated 1/4/13)|
