Fantasy Impact:

Villar was actually in the Cubs' original lineup on Friday, so this was quite the fall from grace for the veteran. Chicago needed to clear a roster spot when the team activated David Bote from the 60-day injured list, so Villar, a veteran on a rebuilding club, was the casualty. He has six stolen bases on the year and has been productive throughout his career, so expect the Cubs to find a trading partner before releasing him.
