The Milwaukee Brewers released Singleton on the 27th (Korean time). Milwaukee recently signed infielder Brian Anderson and made Singleton a transfer to make room on the 40-man roster. Singleton, who had a question mark on his future, eventually ended his relationship with Milwaukee and became ‘invincible’.
Singleton was once a promising prospect representing the Houston Astros. He seemed to explode his potential with 21 home runs in minor league double-A in 2012, but trouble came from an unexpected place. In June and December 2012, he tested positive for marijuana consecutively, and in January 2013, he was suspended for 50 games. 메이저사이트
Having digested all of his discipline, Singleton made his big league debut in 2014 and hit 13 home runs. He had a low batting average (0.168), but was recognized for his long-running ability. However, he seldom established himself, only appearing in 19 games in 2015. Singleton, who looked for opportunities in the minor leagues in 2016 and 2017, was caught with a banned substance for the third time in his personal career in January 2018, and his career was completely disrupted. As a result of the discipline, he was suspended for 100 games and released from Houston in May of that year.
In April 2020, he managed to find a team in the Mexican League, but suffered twists and turns that prevented him from participating in the game due to the spread of corona. Singleton, who signed a minor contract with Milwaukee in December 2021, aimed to return to the big leagues. Last year’s minor league triple-A record was 0.219 batting average, 24 home runs and 87 RBIs. Singleton, who failed to return to the MLB, was pushed out of the main power this winter and could not avoid the notice of ‘release’. His last major league game was on October 3, 2015 against the Arizona Diamondbacks. His MLB career (2 years) was a batting average of 0.171 (61 hits in 357 at-bats) in 114 games, 14 homers and 50 RBIs. The combined OPS of on-base percentage (0.290) and slugging percentage (0.331) is 0.621.
