Houston Astros Sign Slugger Who Made Remarkable Comeback To Baseball

After a challenging journey filled with ups and downs, Jon Singleton has found his way back home to the Houston Astros.

The first baseman recently signed a minor league contract with the Astros, marking a significant milestone in his baseball career.

Singleton had previously played 114 games for the Astros between 2014 and 2015 before moving on to various teams.

Singleton's return to the major leagues comes after impressing with his performance in the minor leagues.

Following his designation for assignment by the Milwaukee Brewers, Singleton seized the opportunity to showcase his skills and dedication. He excelled, batting .258/.384/.483 with 10 home runs, 29 RBIs, and 23 runs scored in 49 games played.

The Astros recognized Singleton's potential and decided to offer him a chance to contribute to their organization. His signing provides the team with valuable depth and a left-handed hitting option at first base.

It also serves as a testament to Singleton's perseverance and determination, as he overcame personal challenges, including a battle with marijuana addiction and a three-year break from the game.

While Singleton's return to the majors is a significant accomplishment, it is expected that his role with the Astros will primarily be within their Triple-A affiliate, the Sugar Land team.

Barring any injuries, opportunities for Singleton in the major leagues may be limited this season. Nonetheless, his story serves as an inspiring example of resilience and the power of second chances in the world of baseball. Photo Credit: Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports
