News and Notes
6/2/2014 by KDaddy
Jonathan Singleton became the first player to sign a major, multi-year extension before playing a single MLB game when the Astros bought out his next five to eight years for a guaranteed $10M and a ceiling of $35M. Singleton will leave his AAA season behind, having slashed .267/.397/.544 and logged 14 home runs for AAA Oklahoma City, and move to Houston for Tuesday's game against the Angels. He'll need to fresh new drug test shortly, of course.

As his 50-game suspension winds down, Jonathan Singleton is preparing to finally start his 2013 season. The top Astros prospect will probably debut in rehab-fashion, appropriately enough, by dipping his toes back into A-ball briefly. He'll wind up in AAA, ultimately, but probably won't see Minute Maid Park until September. Assuming he's healthy, he should compete for a job in 2014.

Jonathan Singleton has received a fifty game suspension for a 'drug of abuse' (hint: it's legal for Rockies and Mariners fans), which should harsh a little of his buzz: assuming the ban stands up, his chances of making the Astros opening day roster will have evaporated.

Jonathan Singleton collected three hits in Sunday's Futures Game. The big slugger is looking more and more like an invaluable part of the Astros lineup, and soon.
