Villar is batting .240 since the All-Star break with a two steals, two runs and eight strikeouts. Sogard is currently on a rehab assignment and could rejoin the team as early as this weekend in Philadelphia.

Jonathan Villar collects two hits, steal in Brewers' win

Jonathan Villar went 2-for-4 on Saturday batting leadoff for the Brewers. He hit two singles, scored a run and stole his 17th base of the season in the 3-2 win over the Phillies.

Fantasy Impact

Since moving back into the leadoff spot on July 3, Villar is batting .282 (.310 OBP) with six runs and two steals. Eric Sogard (ankle) is eligible to come off the DL but received a cortisone shot on Friday which could delay his return. Villar and Sogard could end up sharing at-bats hurting both players fantasy value when he returns.

Jonathan Villar swipes 16th base in Brewers' rout over Cubs

Jonathan Villar hit leadoff on Thursday with Eric Sogard (ankle) on the DL. Villar went 1-for-4 with a single, walk, two runs, a RBI and a steal as the Brewers' crushed the Cubs 11-2.

Fantasy Impact

Villar will get everyday at-bats in their weekend series in New York against the Yankees as the first-place Brewers wrap up the first half before the All-Star break. Villar needs to take advantage of Sogard being out of the lineup to re-assert himself as the primary 2B and leadoff hitter for the Brewers. Since returning from the DL on June 27, he is batting just .176 with two homers and two steals.

Jonathan Villar is 1-for-19 his last five games

Jonathan Villar went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts on Tuesday after going 0-for-5 with three strikeouts on Monday. Over his last five games, he is 1-for-19 with 10 strikeouts.

Fantasy Impact

Villar is now hitting .207 after this most recent slump, frustrating fantasy owners who were hoping for a repeat of Villar's spectacular 2016 campaign. While he does boast an elite combination of power and speed, he is striking out 31.5% of the time. After posting a wOBA of .356 last season, Villar's wOBA through 67 games in 2017 is just .271.
