RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Singleton overcame a brutal midseason slump to string together a pretty nice season, hitting .284/.396/.497 with 21 long balls as a 20-year-old in Double-A. As a first baseman, Singleton is going to need to hit home runs consistently, especially if his batting average is not going to be north of .300. He silenced some of his critics with his 2012 campaign, but he will need to build on the progress to cement his future. The Astros' move to the American League should not do much to change Singleton's long-term positioning: teammate Brett Wallace doesn't offer much in the way of defense, which means first base should belong to Singleton when he is ready to take the reins. That will likely come in September of 2013 or later, as Singleton was given a 50-game suspension in January for violating the Minor League Drug Prevention and Treatment Program after testing positive for marijuana use.

2012

Coming over to the Astros in the Hunter Pence deal, Singleton immediately became the top hitting prospect in Houston's farm system. He reportedly has excellent raw power, though that has yet to manifest itself through nearly 1,000 minor league at-bats. He needs to improve his pitch recognition a little bit (123 strikeouts in 449 at-bats), but improvement is possible and likely. Singleton is worth a flyer now in dynasty leagues, while the price is still low.

2011

Singleton, who just turned 19-years-old last September, established himself as the Phillies' best offensive prospect behind Domonic Brown after hitting .290/.393/.479 with 14 home runs and nine stolen bases in 376 at-bats for Low-A Lakewood last season. The Phillies opted to move Singleton off first base and into left field this winter in order to give him a clearer path to the majors (the team clearly must feel he'll arrive in the majors before Ryan Howard's contract expires). Singleton reportedly looked good in his new position during Instructional League play and could move quickly through the minors. He has excellent power potential to go along with a stellar eye at the plate (62:74 BB:K ratio last year).
