The Astros have reached a contract agreement that will move star Oklahoma City RedHawks first baseman Jon Singleton to the parent team in Houston.

The Astros inked Singleton to a five-year, $10 million guaranteed deal that includes three club-option years that could conceivably increase his pay to $30 million in eight years, with the base deal running from 2014 until 2018.

The 22-year-old was originally with Philadelphia before being shipped to Houston in a five-player deal for Hunter Pence in 2011 and has been a standout in Triple-A for Oklahoma City.

In 54 games with the RedHawks, Singleton hit .267 with a .544 slugging percentage and 14 home runs.
