JONATHAN SINGLETON RUMORS

Jon Singleton Gets His Payday and the Astros Get a Bargain

Jon Singleton is a prospect. He may have his first Major League home run and is on a 25-man roster, but he is still a prospect in the sense that he is not a fully known entity.

It is perfectly rational then that when Singleton was offered a five year, $10...

Astros prospect Jonathan Singleton’s Twitter feed will get him in some trouble if he’s not more careful

Astros’ prospect Jonathan Singleton’s Twitter account is raw and unvarnished. For now anyway.
