Astros' Jon Singleton: Losing work to Diaz
Singleton is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Red Sox.
Since his big two-homer, five-RBI effort in a 11-3 win over the Angels on Aug. 11, Singleton has fallen into a 1-for-25 rut at the plate over his subsequent eight contests. Though Jose Abreu (back) remains on the injured list and without a clear timeline for a return, Singleton's ongoing slump may have cost him his role as the Astros' primary first baseman. Singleton will hit the bench for the second time in three games while the hot-hitting Yainer Diaz picks up another start at first base at his expense.... See More ... See Less
Astros' Jon Singleton: Scores twice
Singleton went 1-for-3 with two walks and two runs scored Wednesday against the Marlins.
Singleton has started every game since Aug. 10, when Jose Abreu (back) was placed on the injured list. He's struggled for the majority of that stretch, collecting only four hits in 25 at-bats. While Singleton has run into some bad luck -- he's struck out at only an 11.5 percent clip -- his playing time will almost certainly dry up as soon as Abreu can return, which is likely to occur Sunday....

Astros' Jon Singleton: Parties like it's 2015
Singleton went 3-for-4 with two homers, five RBI and three runs scored in Friday's 11-3 win over the Angels.
The two blasts marked Singleton's first big-league home runs in more than eight years. The 31-year-old was called up Aug. 8 and was making his second consecutive start for the Astros in place of an injured Jose Abreu (back). Prior to a previous stint this year with the Brewers, Singleton hadn't played in the majors since October 2015. His return is a great story, but he'll likely have difficulty carving out a regular role over the final two months of the season.... See More ... See Less
Astros' Jon Singleton: Selected to MLB roster
The Astros selected Singleton's contract from Triple-A Sugar Land on Tuesday, Matt Kawahara of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Singleton had slashed .333/.446/.692 with 12 home runs and 28 RBI through 33 games this summer for Sugar Land. He is not in the starting lineup Tuesday against the Orioles and could struggle to carve out regular playing time, but the 31-year-old should be a useful bat off the bench. He last appeared in a major-league game for the Astros way back in 2015, but he did suit up for 11 games with the Brewers earlier this season and produced a .103/.188/.138 slash line across 32 plate appearances over 11 games....

Astros' Jon Singleton: Set to be recalled Tuesday
Singleton is expected to be recalled from Triple-A Sugar Land on Tuesday, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.
It has been eight years since Singleton last played for the Astros, but it appears he will get a chance to show what he can do at the top level for the first time since rejoining Houston in late June. Singleton appeared in 11 big-league games with the Brewers earlier this year but posted just a .326 OPS.... See More ... See Less
Astros' Jon Singleton: Back with Astros
Singleton signed a minor-league contract with the Astros on Saturday, Chandler Rome of The Athletic reports.
Singleton's less-than-stellar .103/.188/.138 slash line through 11 games with Milwaukee prompted the Brewers to designate him for assignment June 17. Now, Singleton will rejoin the Astros -- the same team he debuted with in 2014 -- and provide organizational depth at first base. Barring injuries, Singleton's chances to return to the majors this season are low.... See More ... See Less
Jon Singleton: Headed for free agency
Singleton elected free agency after clearing waivers Wednesday, Curt Hogg of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Singleton will seek out an opportunity in a new organization after he was recently moved off the Brewers' 40-man roster following a two-week stint with the big club. In his first MLB action since the 2015 campaign, the 31-year-old first baseman/designated hitter slashed .103/.188/.138 with 11 strikeouts in 32 plate appearances.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Jon Singleton: DFA'd by Brew Crew
The Brewers designated Singleton for assignment Saturday.
Singleton is slashing .103/.188/.138 since being called up by the Brewers, and the return of Jesse Winker (neck) from the injured list will push him off the Brewers' active and 40-man rosters. The veteran first baseman has had a successful season in Triple-A, so it's definitely possible another team claims him off waivers.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Jon Singleton: On bench versus lefty
Singleton is not in the starting lineup Sunday versus Oakland.
Singleton will head to the bench as the Brewers face off with southpaw JP Sears on Sunday. Singleton has gone 3-for-22 with a double, two RBI and three runs scored while drawing a walk and striking out six times since being promoted from Triple-A Nashville on June 3. Christian Yelich will slot in at designated hitter while Blake Perkins enters the lineup in left field and will bat eighth as Milwaukee looks to avoid the sweep.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Jon Singleton: Makes first appearance since 2015
Singleton went 1-for-4 with one run scored in Saturday's 10-8 win over Cincinnati.
Singleton made his first MLB appearance since 2015, playing first base and batting sixth. Rowdy Tellez operated as the designated hitter Saturday, but he figures to man first on a regular basis, so Singleton will presumably be relegated to a backup role, limiting his overall fantasy value....

Brewers' Jon Singleton: Joining team Saturday
Singleton will have his contract selected from Triple-A Nashville on Saturday, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.
The 31-year-old first baseman will have a chance to play in the majors for the first time since 2015 with Darin Ruf (leg) headed for the IL. Singleton was signed to a minor-league contract over the winter, and he hit .258 with 10 homers and an .867 OPS over 178 plate appearances with Nashville. He could see time at first base as well as designated hitter while he's with the Brew Crew, but isn't likely to see much action.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Jon Singleton: Officially promoted
The Brewers selected Singleton's contract from Triple-A Nashville on Saturday.
With Darin Ruf (knee) headed to the 10-day injured list, Singleton will play in the majors for the first time since 2015 and serve as Milwaukee's backup first baseman. Singleton is slashing .258/.384/.483 with 10 homers and 29 RBI through 216 plate appearances with Nashville, but he likely won't make a big enough impact in Milwaukee to become a fantasy asset....

Brewers' Jon Singleton: Reassigned to minors camp
Singleton was reassigned Tuesday to the minor-league side of Brewers camp, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Singleton was released by the Brewers back in January before re-signing with the club on a minor-league pact a few weeks later. He hasn't appeared in a game at the major-league level since all the way back in 2015.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Jon Singleton: Back with Milwaukee
Singleton signed a minor-league contract with the Brewers on Friday and received an invitation to major-league spring training, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
After being cut by the Brewers roughly two weeks ago, Singleton will rejoin the club as an organizational depth piece. The 31-year-old first baseman recorded an .809 OPS with Triple-A Nashville last year after playing in Mexico in 2021.... See More ... See Less
Jon Singleton: Released by Milwaukee
Singleton was released by the Brewers on Thursday, per the MLB transaction log.
Singleton was designated for assignment by Milwaukee on Monday, and he unsurprisingly went unclaimed on waivers. He spent the entire 2022 season with Triple-A Nashville and managed a .219/.375/.434 line across 581 plate appearances.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Jon Singleton: Loses 40-man spot
The Brewers designated Singleton for assignment Monday, Curt Hogg of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
The move opens up a spot on the 40-man roster for Brian Anderson, whose one-year deal with Milwaukee became official Monday. The 31-year-old Singleton was added to the Brewers' 40-man roster earlier in the offseason after he slashed .219/.375/.434 with 24 home runs in 134 games with Triple-A Nashville in 2022. The former top prospect will hit waivers, and he could elect free agency if he goes unclaimed.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Jon Singleton: Joins 40-man roster
Singleton was added to the Brewers' 40-man roster Tuesday.
Singleton recently re-signed with Milwaukee on a minor-league deal, and he's now been bumped up to the 40-man roster. The 31-year-old, who was a highly-regarded prospect with the Astros nearly a decade ago, spent 2022 at Triple-A Nashville and had a .219/.375/.434 slash line with 24 home runs, 87 RBI and 84 runs in 134 games. He'll likely receive an invite to big-league camp but will need a strong showing in spring training to have a chance of cracking the Opening Day roster.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Jon Singleton: Back with Milwaukee
Singleton agreed Monday with the Brewers on a minor-league contract, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
For the first time since 2017, Singleton made his return to affiliated ball in 2022 and provided a nice blend of power and on-base skills for Triple-A Nashville in Milwaukee's organization. While playing in 134 games, the 31-year-old first baseman slashed .219/.375/.434 with 24 home runs and a 20.4 percent walk rate across 581 plate appearances. He'll likely get the opportunity to join the Brewers for big-league camp this spring as a non-roster invitee, but the expectation is that he'll report back to Nashville for the start of the 2023 campaign....

Brewers' Jon Singleton: Homers in first game back
Singleton went 1-for-4 with a home run in Tuesday's season opener with Triple-A Nashville.
Singleton signed a minor-league deal with the Brewers over the offseason, and he wound up going deep in his first official appearance since 2017. Now 30 years old, the once-heralded prospect has mostly lost his shine, but he showed Tuesday he still has some pop. He's going to need a stretch of success at the Triple-A level to earn another shot in the big leagues, but a promotion at some point is not out of the question.... See More ... See Less
