Astros | Jonathan Villar working in OF

Thu, 11 Jun 2015 18:38:29 -0700

Houston Astros SS Jonathan Villar will work at all three outfield positions and receive regular playing time at Class AAA Fresno, manager A.J. Hinch said Wednesday, June 10.

Fantasy Tip: Villar ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) was the odd man out when Carlos Correa ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) was called up, and learning a new position could be his only path back to the majors. For now, Villar has no value at FantasyScore or in seasonal leagues.

Astros | Preston Tucker out vs. lefty

Mon, 08 Jun 2015 14:21:11 -0700

Houston Astros OF Preston Tucker is not in the starting lineup against a left-handed pitcher Monday, June 8. SS Jonathan Villar is starting in left field and hitting second in the batting order against Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale.

Fantasy Tip: Villar ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) isn't much of an offensive threat (.264-1-7) and is a very weak play on FantasyScore this evening against the dominant Sale.

Astros | Jonathan Villar receives start

Sat, 06 Jun 2015 08:52:27 -0700

Houston Astros SS Jonathan Villar is starting at shortstop Saturday, June 6, and is batting ninth in the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Villar ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) has six hits in his last seven games but only one RBI in his last 12 games. Villar could be an option for owners on FantasyScore, but owners could also look for better options to use.

Astros | Marwin Gonzalez out Friday

Fri, 05 Jun 2015 13:21:04 -0700

Houston Astros SS Marwin Gonzalez is not in the starting lineup Friday, June 5. SS Jonathan Villar is starting at the 6 and hitting ninth in the batting order against Toronto Blue Jays SP Aaron Sanchez.

Fantasy Tip: Villar ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) has very little power to speak of (career high seven home runs), making him a low-end shortstop commodity for daily gamers.

Astros | Preston Tucker sitting out

Thu, 04 Jun 2015 08:37:01 -0700

Houston Astros OF Preston Tucker is out of the lineup Thursday, June 4, and SS Jonathan Villar is in his spot in left field.

Fantasy Tip: Tucker has been hitting third in recent days and receives the breather today. Villar ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) isn't doing enough to warrant the play on FantasyScore.

Astros | Marwin Gonzalez out of lineup Wednesday

Wed, 03 Jun 2015 13:43:11 -0700

Houston Astros SS Marwin Gonzalez is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 3, against the Baltimore Orioles. SS Jonathan Villar is starting and batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) appears to be out for a night off, so remove him from consideration. Villar ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is hitting .417 over the past week and would not make a bad replacement for Gonzalez in the lineup.

Astros | No Marwin Gonzalez Friday

Fri, 29 May 2015 14:18:46 -0700

Houston Astros SS Marwin Gonzalez is not in the starting lineup Friday, May 29. SS Jonathan Villar is starting at the 6 and hitting seventh in the batting order against Chicago White Sox SP Carlos Rodon.

Fantasy Tip: Villar ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has very little offensive upside and is a poor FantasyScore play tonight against up-and-coming youngster Rodon.

Astros | Marwin Gonzalez on the bench

Mon, 25 May 2015 07:54:39 -0700

Houston Astros SS Marwin Gonzalez is not in the starting lineup Monday, May 25. SS Jonathan Villar will be the starting shortstop for the team.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) probably will be back in the starting lineup in the next game or two. Villar ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is hitting .283 so far in May, but owners likely will be able to find better options to use on FantasyScore.

Astros | Jonathan Villar in at short

Sun, 24 May 2015 08:08:06 -0700

Houston Astros SS Jonathan Villar will start at shortstop and bat eighth in the order Sunday, May 24, against the Detroit Tigers.

Fantasy Tip: Villar ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is coming off a 2-for-4 performance Saturday, in which he started at third base. Villar wasn't able to provide any offense other than the two singles, and FantasyScore owners can certainly find more appealing options.

Astros | Marwin Gonzalez sitting vs. Detroit

Thu, 21 May 2015 07:58:11 -0700

Houston Astros SS Marwin Gonzalez is not in the starting lineup against the Detroit Tigers Thursday, May 21. SS Jonathan Villar is batting seventh and starting at shortstop Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Facing tough-lefty David Price, Villar ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) should be viewed as nothing more than a desperation flier. Make sure to avoid Gonzalez ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) in all fantasy formats Thursday, too.
