RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Villanueva spent the year with Double-A Tennessee and had 62 extra-base hits, but his 34:117 BB:K ratio indicates he still has some work to do at the plate. There are a lot of options for the hot corner in Chicago, and Kris Bryant is definitely the future at the position, but Villanueva could get to the majors first and might be able to find some success if he works on his batting eye.

2012

Villanueva made the Sally League All-Star team in his full-season debut, hitting .278/.338/.465, and is expected to play at High-A Myrtle Beach in 2012. He could switch positions, as Texas is well-stocked at third base with Adrian Beltre and Mike Olt.
