BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2014 Due to publishing agreements, the 2014 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2014 book (available in hardcopy, e-book, and Kindle).
2013 Villareal, a former seventh-round pick out of Howard College in Texas, has been used primarily as a starter in the minors. His career 4.35 ERA and 6.4 K/9 over five seasons are about as exciting as buying socks at K-mart. But pitching staffs, like socks, sometimes get holes in them. And when they do, isn't it nice to know that you can pop on down and grab yourself a Villareal?
2012 On the Reds' long list of surprise additions to their 40-man this winter, Villarreal might have rated as the most surprising. A seventh-round selection in the 2008 draft with nice control, a willingness to work inside, and a successful 2011 jump to Double-A, the stocky Texan didn't have a whole lot else going for him—except for that other skill that can get overlooked among pitchers: health. That's something that was hard to find among upper-level pitchers in the organization.
