Brewers Designate Slugger For Assignment; 24 Home Runs In Triple-A Last Season

This is the corresponding move for the signing of Brian Anderson.

The Milwaukee Brewers have designated first baseman Jon Singleton for assignment.

Singleton is removed from the 40-man roster and placed on waivers to make room for the club to finalize a one-year contract with slugger Brian Anderson.

Singleton did not get into a major league game last season, but he smashed 24 home runs along with 87 RBIs and 84 runs scored over 456 at-bats with Triple-A Nashville last season. However, he posted a poor .219/.375/.809 triple-slash line to go along with it.

Regardless, the power is real and that alone could have some teams interested in putting in a claim for him.

The thirty-one-year-old has not made an appearance in the majors since the 2015 season when he was with the Houston Astros. Singleton has played all 114 games of his major league career with the Astros, racking up 14 home runs, 50 RBIs, three stolen bases and 48 runs scored to go along with a .171/.290/.331 triple-slash line. 

We'll wait and see if another team claims Singleton.
