Villarreal doesn't throw particularly hard, nor does he induce a significantly high percentage of groundballs, so there's a pretty low ceiling on what he can accomplish at the big league level. It took the Reds three years of his service time at Triple-A Louisville to decide he was better suited for relief work than starting, and his spot on the 40-man roster with the team is hanging by a thread with them as a result. At best, he profiles as a middle reliever or spot starter that might be able to vulture a few wins.
