BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2011 Many scouts feel Villar might be better-suited for the bullpen than the rotation, but the Astros have held him in high enough esteem to have hidden him on the 40-man roster for the past two winters. His sinker/slider combination has held up as a starter in the minor leagues and might help him get by in the back of a major-league rotation. However, his long-term future seems to lie in relief, since he's saddled with a below-average changeup and the dubious durability suggested by his slight frame.
2010 Short Dominican Henry Villar—on the theory everyone under six feet is short—had an outstanding full-season debut, showing off a nice power assortment to pitch his way onto the 40-man.
