2009 Overview


Career (2006-09)


What happened?

Villar appeared mostly out of relief in 2009, a year after starting all 13 games he appeared in for Greeneville. In Greeneville, he threw 65.1IP, 4.41 ERA/1.24 WHIP, so he fared much better in his second full season in the US after spending 2006-2007 in the DSL. Villar also improved upon his K:BB ratio, which had been over 5.00 in each of the last two seasons, until 2009 in which it was 6.06:1.

What went right?

Home games. In 45.1IP at home, Villar posted a 1.79 ERA/1.06 WHIP, and a .224 BAA. His away splits weren't bad (3.43/1.12, .246), either, which is promising as he moves forward.

What went wrong?

Not a whole lot.

I've lived here in the Greenville, SC area now for about 10 years. I just now realized that Lexington is in the SAL with the Greenville Drive. All these years I could have been watching our youngsters, and I've been missing out. This year I put a stop to it! They'll be here the 24-27 of April, and I will try to make all four games.

If you want me to do anything for the blog while I'm there, let me know.

Villar was a stud in Greeneville a few years ago. Let's see if he handles Lancaster well. I am optimistic.
