Jonathan Villar getting playing time in center field

Jonathan Villar started in CF on Sunday batting leadoff and went 1-for-4 during the Brewers' 5-4 loss to the Reds.

Fantasy Impact

With Keon Broxton struggling at the plate, Villar has started the last four games in CF. He is often replaced by Broxton as a defensive replacement in the late innings. Villar will continue to get opportunities to start as long as he continues to hit. He is batting .423 with two home runs and five RBIs over his last seven games.

Jonathan Villar homers for second straight day Thursday

Jonathan Villar went 3-for-5 with a two-run home run Thursday against the Nationals.

Fantasy Impact

This is Villar's second straight day with a home run, and third straight multi-hit game. Despite his well documented struggles Villar still provides a solid power-speed threat with 11 home runs and 23 steals in 405 PAs this season. Villar could make for a sneaky play down the stretch for owners in need of steals.

Jonathan Villar hits 10th home run Wednesday

Jonathan Villar got the start at 2B on Wednesday and went 2-for-4 with a home run, two RBIs and two runs scored in the Brewers' 6-5 win over the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact

With Travis Shaw (foot) out of the lineup on Wednesday, Neil Walker moved over to 3B with Villar playing 2B. The home run was Villar's 10th of the season but just his second since the All-Star break. He will need a prolonged absence by Shaw, which is not expected, to stay in the lineup on a consistent basis.

Jonathan Villar collects two hits off bench Tuesday

Jonathan Villar was not in the starting lineup on Tuesday but entered the game as a pinch-hitter in the fifth inning and remained in the game finishing 2-for-3 during the Brewers' 10-2 loss to the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact

Villar has been relegated to the bench since the addition of Neil Walker, with his last start coming on August 23. At this point, Villar will likely need an injury to find his way into the lineup on a consistent basis. He can be dropped in all standard leagues.

Jonathan Villar collects three hits, steal in Brewers' win

Jonathan Villar went 3-for-5 on Sunday during the Brewers' 8-4 win over the Rockies. Villar also swiped his 23rd base of the season.

Fantasy Impact

Sunday was the only start Villar had during the three-game weekend series in Colorado. He has been hitting well when given the opportunity over the last couple of weeks but he continues to fight for playing time with Neil Walker and Eric Sogard at 2B. Villar is only fantasy relevant in deep mixed and NL-only leagues right now.
