Jonathan Villar has three hit night Tuesday

Jonathan Villar went 3-for-4 with three singles and a run scored in the Brewers' win over the Royals Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

Villar is now hitting .300 with a .686 OPS on the year. He's struck out 23 times and walked just three times in 73 plate appearances, which make his .300 average look fluky. He's currently benefiting from a .435 BABIP. He should be a good source of steals, but expect the average to drop.

Jonathan Villar wears golden sombrero Friday

Jonathan Villar went 0-for-4 with four strikeouts and a walk in the Brewers' 8-0 win over the Marlins Friday.

Fantasy Impact

Villar also stranded seven runners in his five plate appearances. He now has 23 strikeouts to just three walks so far this year, meaning his .270 AVG could begin to tumble. His speed gives him fantasy value, but don't expect a 2016 repeat with this plate discipline and poor contact skills.

Jonathan Villar hits three-run home run Saturday

Jonathan Villar went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run and two walks Saturday against the Mets.

Fantasy Impact

The home-run was Villar's first of the year, and it came off Matt Harvey in the second inning. Villar is hitting .298 this season, but his 13-0 K-BB and 71.9% groundball rate suggest that his batting average is not sustainable.

Jonathan Villar goes 0-for-4 in Wednesday's win

Jonathan Villar went 0-for-4 with an RBI groundout and a strikeout in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Cardinals. Villar is now hitting .310 through 42 at-bats so far this season.

Fantasy Impact

Villar has had a hot start to the season so far, however, the power numbers aren't there and he hasn't drawn any walks yet, which is slightly concerning. Keep Villar in your lineup, but be careful if the batting average starts to fall, as he's not scoring points many ways besides singles.

Jonathan Villar hitless in loss

Jonathan Villar went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in Saturday's loss to the Cubs.

Fantasy Impact

Despite the 0-for, Villar has posted a solid .290 batting average through the early going. He has also chipped in two stolen bases. The lack of power is a bit disappointing, but he had multiple hits in three straight starts entering Saturday's game.
