RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Villar disappointed fantasy owners who drafted him for his 40-plus stolen base potential last season, as the Dominican native struggled offensively and swiped only 17 bags in 87 games with the Astros. By comparison, the 23-year-old shortstop had 18 steals in 54 games the year prior. He did hit seven home runs, but Houston eventually decided his .209/.267/.354 slash line and 18 errors at shortstop wasn't cutting it and turned to Marwin Gonzalez and Gregorio Petit to man the position. With uber-prospect Carlos Correa at least a year away from reaching the big leagues, Villar should get an opportunity to redeem himself this season, but he'll need to improve his fielding skills (.949), contact rate (70%) and cut down on his strikeouts (27.7%) in order for that happen.

2014

Once the Astros realized that Ronny Cedeno wasn't cutting it as their starting shortstop, Villar was given an opportunity to show what he could do at the big league level. After displaying elite speed in the minors, the 22-year-old Dominican Republic native was extremely aggressive on the basepaths for Houston, swiping 18 bags in 54 games. He made some baserunning gaffes along the way (he was caught stealing eight times) and he didn't hit the ball particularly well (.243 batting average, 29.5 percent strikeout rate), but the switch-hitter showed good plate discipline (10 percent walk rate) while hitting from the leadoff and ninth spots in the batting order. With top prospect Carlos Correa still a few years away, Villar will be given an extended look in Houston this season. He should be a relatively cheap source of steals in 2014 drafts since he does not offer much outside of that category.

2013

Villar was putting together a passable season at Double-A as a 21-year-old before deciding to punch a door in July, which caused him to miss most of the rest of the year. While some days Villar flashes his potential and gives you a glimpse of a future big league star, most days he looks pretty average. Villar improved his plate discipline somewhat from 2011, increasing the walks while decreasing the strikeouts, but he will have to do a lot more growing as he reaches the upper minors. Villar was probably the closest middle-infield prospect to the big leagues in the Houston system, but after missing so much time in 2012, a September callup is probably optimistic.

2012

Villar continued to fail to live up to expectations again in 2011, hitting .241/.320/.396 with 34 stolen bases in 130 minor league games. If he learned some plate discipline, Villar could become someone that owners could count on to do a little bit of everything. Without that growth, his long-term future is probably best suited to role-player status. He's still just 20, and should start the year back in Double-A.

2011

Villar came over to the Astros in the midseason deal that sent Roy Oswalt to Philadelphia. Villar is fast and athletic, but still very raw as a hitter. He will need plenty of time to develop, and bear in mind the Astros do not have a good track record with similar prospects. The steals alone will keep him on the fantasy radar, but he may never nail down a major league job if he can't rack up enough hits and draw more walks.
