Brewers Sign Former Top Prospect

They're bringing him back. 

The Milwaukee Brewers have re-signed first baseman Jon Singleton to a minor-league contract, with an invite to spring training. 

It's the second straight season in the Brewers' organization for Singelton, who slashed .219/.375/.809, with 24 home runs, 87 RBIs, three stolen bases and 84 runs scored over 456 at-bats in the minors last season. 
Singleton is a former eighth-round pick by the Philadelphia Phillies in the 2009 MLB Draft, and made the Top 100 prospects lists every year from 2011-14. 

The thirty-one-year-old hasn't appeared in a major league game since the 2015 season with the Houston Astros, where he played just 19 games. In his rookie season with the Astros in 2014, Singleton slashed a poor .168/.285/.335, but hit 13 home runs with 44 RBIs across 95 games. 

He'll get a chance to compete for another major-league job next spring.
