RotoWire News: Villar has rejoined the Brewers after playing in the WBC with the Dominican Republic, and he could return to spring action Tuesday, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. (3/20/2017)

Profile: Villar spend the first three years of his major league career as a part-time player for Houston, flashing bits of power and decent speed to go with a modest .653 OPS. The infielder completely changed his profile in his first season with Milwaukee, however. Villar exploded with a .285/.369/.457 line across 156 games in 2016, racking up 19 homers while pacing all of baseball with 62 stolen bases. The Dominican also led baseball by being caught 18 times on the basepaths, but considering how much the Brewers liked to run (their 181 total steals shattered the Reds’ 139 at No. 2), it is unlikely he is going to be slowed down any time soon. Villar strikes out plenty -- his 26% strikeout rate was close to his career norm -- but he bumped his walk rate all the way up to a solid 12%. Those worried about regression may point to Villar’s .373 batting average on balls in play, although he posted a .360 mark in ‘15 and a .362 BABIP in ‘13. The switch-hitter was especially productive against southpaws last year (.930 OPS), and considering he won’t turn 26 until May, he could certainly be a strong table-setter at the top of the Milwaukee lineup again. (Dylan Higgins)

The Quick Opinion: A change of scenery and a full-time opportunity saw Villar turn himself into one of the premier leadoff men in fantasy. With a solid average, double-digit pop, and the ability to lead baseball in steals again, the infielder has turned himself into an elite option -- especially considering he is likely to qualify at multiple positions.
