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.
