FANTASY BASEBALL TRADE DEADLINE (BUY LOW)
BEAST DOME NATION.
There is no doubting, when Jonathan Villar gets the chance to play, he is a Fantasy Baseball stud. Whether it is a run, a Stolen Base, maybe even a HR. Villar made his season work for him for the Brewers in the 1st Half of the season.
In 257 At-Bats, Villar had 6 HRs and 14 SBs and hit over .260, while those numbers are not amazing, they are pretty good for someone who batted towards the end of the order and had inconsistent playing time. If he played a Full season with those numbers, 10+ HRs and 25+ SBs were automatic.
Villar was losing playing time to just about every Middle Infielder the Brewers had, and then a thumb injury forced him to the DL. After the Brewers traded for Moustakas, it seemed inevitable Villar’s 2018 was done. Then out of nowhere, the Brewers traded him to the Orioles for Jonathan Schoop. A player I said to buy low for months ago.
Since July 2nd when that article on Schoop was published, Schoop had at least 1 hit in 23 of the 24 games he has played to go with 9 HRs and .360 Batting Average, and likely AL Player of the Month. Somehow turning Villar into Schoop seemed to be mandatory.
Villar was on the DL a week later, and Schoop has been tearing it up since.
With Villar going to Baltimore, the tables have turned. Villar should be batting leadoff or 2nd for the Orioles everyday to close out the season. He plays in Hitter friendly ball parks, and is on an offense that is going to let him be aggressive on the bath paths. The Orioles want to see what they got in Villar and will let him play everyday to close out the year. He could easily be among the AL Leaders in Stolen Bases to close out the year, and should hit a handful of HRs.
Buy Villar now, and see the BEAST results later.
