Houston Astros Looking To Trade First Baseman, Jon Singleton

Today marks the day that the Houston Astros could begin to shop Jon Singleton on the trade market. Singleton was optioned to the minor leagues today following a rough spring training. He was competing for the starting first base job with Tyler WhiteMatt Duffy, and A.J. Reed, but it looks as if he is out of the running. During spring training, he hit .125 with two home runs, six RBI’s, three runs, and a .176 OBP in 51 plate appearances. Singleton was once a prized first base prospect, but he has struggled to live up to those expectations since his promotion in 2014. In 420 plate appearances in the major leagues (from 2014 to 2015), he has hit .171 with 14 home runs, 50 RBI’s, 48 runs, and a .290 OBP. At only 24 years of age, Singleton still has time to turn his career around, but his chances are running out. Luckily for Singleton, he was signed to a five year/$10 million contract (expires in 2018), so he making good money, but I’m sure the Astros are tired of paying the contract of a guy who continues to disappoint the organization.
