Brewers Place Slugger Who Made Remarkable Comeback To Baseball On Waivers

The Milwaukee Brewers have made the decision to designate Jon Singleton for assignment on Saturday.

Singleton, a first baseman, was called up to the majors earlier this month but struggled to find success at the plate, posting a disappointing slash line of .103/.188/.138 over 11 games.

Despite his remarkable journey back to the major leagues, Singleton's lack of offensive production led to uncertainty about his spot on the Brewers' roster, especially with the impending return of Jesse Winker from the injured list.

It is possible that another team may claim Singleton off waivers if he clears DFA waivers, offering him a chance to continue his baseball career elsewhere.

The 29-year-old's minor league numbers this season have actually been solid, posting a .258/.384/.483 triple-slash line, with 10 home runs, 29 RBIs, and 23 runs scored across 49 games played.

It is worth noting that Singleton's return to the major leagues marked a personal victory for him after battling marijuana addiction and taking a three-year break from baseball before making a comeback in the Mexican League in 2021. Photo Credit: Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports
