Brewers | Jonathan Villar out of a starting job?

Tue, 20 Jun 2017 09:53:41 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 2B Jonathan Villar (back) is expected to begin a minor-league rehab assignment this week, but 2B Eric Sogard may not come out of the lineup when Villar is ready to be activated, according to manager Craig Counsell. "We have a tough situation. Sogard is playing extremely well. … We're a ways into it and (he) continues to play at a really high level and get on base at a really incredible pace. … He's playing at a really high level. I think there's space for us to give (Villar) some playing time, but we're looking for the players who are helping us win games," Counsell said.

Brewers | Jonathan Villar benched for blunders

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 21:14:43 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers SS Jonathan Villar was removed from the game in the third inning and replaced by OF Jake Elmore against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Wednesday, July 27. Prior to that, Villar committed two errors and was caught stealing for a league-high 12th time.

Fantasy Tip: Villar is tied with Pittsburgh's Starling Marte for the league lead in steals (36), but no on else in baseball has been caught more than eight times this year and it appears as though manager Craig Counsell had seen enough. It's possible the team will sit Villar in Thursday's finale so keep an eye on the situation to see if he should remain in your starting lineup.

Brewers | Jonathan Villar swipes a pair

Sat, 09 Jul 2016 14:57:59 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers SS Jonathan Villar extended his major-league leading stolen base total Saturday, July 9 versus the St. Louis Cardinals with his 30th and 31st steals of the season.

Fantasy Tip: The Brewers stunningly swiped four bags against Yadier Molina on Saturday, but it proved nearly worthless as Carlos Martinez struck out 11 in five innings. Villar has at least one steal in four straight games and is well on pace to finish with the third-highest single-season stolen base total in franchise history, trailing only Tommy Harper (73; 1969) and Scott Podsednik (70; 2004). His steals alone make him a must-start in fantasy, although the .295 average, six homers and 31 RBI don't hurt either.
