RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

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.
