The Twins released minor league infielder Steve Singleton from the organization today, writes La Velle E. Neal III of the Minneapolis Star Tribune. In a follow-up tweet, Neal adds that "off the field issues" played into the Twins' decision to release the 25-year-old.
Singleton excelled in 41 games at Double-A New Britain this season, hitting .295/.331/.452 with three homers and 17 doubles. He struggled in a promotion to Triple-A Rochester, though, batting just .246/.289/.380. Singleton was an 11th round selection by the Twins back in 2006 and has seen significant time at second base, shortstop, and third base in six minor league seasons, compiling a .282/.329./.418 triple slash line along the way.
