Recommended Pickup
Jonathan Singleton, 1B, HOU Singleton's finally on his way to Houston, where he'll join the Astros before Tuesday's game and presumably step right into the starting job at first base. Singleton's in the midst of a strong Triple-A campaign, with 14 homers, a 42:52 BB:K and a .941 OPS, but it's worth noting that he's hitting just .267 and has cooled since his hot start after a .293 average in April, he hit just .240 in May. Still, Singleton is a high-end talent who's in line for plenty of playing time and likely a featured lineup spot in the vicinity of fellow budding star George Springer.
