Villarreal, Brayan

Again, as part of Villanelle Week here at NotGraphs, I offer:

A Villanelle about Villarreal

Villarreal shut down till spring
He has an elbow that is sore
Will he help the Tigers get a ring?

He throws it fast, the batters swing
In the pen, just Benoit struck out more
Villarreal shut down till spring

The heat mid-90s he can bring
But he was off the postseason roster before
Will he help the Tigers get a ring?

About his elbow he was complaining
It is inflamed, but nothing tore
Villarreal shut down till spring

They’re gonna have him stop throwing
He has had soreness there before
Will he help the Tigers get a ring?

To the bullpen this will sting
They thought perhaps he’d close the door
Villarreal shut down till spring
Will he help the Tigers get a ring?
