Baltimore Orioles second baseman/shortstop Jonathan Villar went 2-for-4 with a single, a double, two RBI, a walk, and a strikeout in Wednesday's 6-5 loss to the Yankees. The 28-year-old has hit well in August, batting .302 with two home runs, seven RBI, and three stolen bases. Villar has been a solid fantasy contributor all season long and should be a fixture in owners' lineups down the stretch so long as he continues to hit and steal bases.
Baltimore Orioles second baseman/shortstop Jonathan Villar had a landmark game in Monday's 9-6 loss to the Yankees, hitting for the cycle in just the fifth time in O's history. Villar was left with just a single to go in his last at-bat but was facing Aroldis Chapman and was able to go the other way with the pitch into right field to complete the feat. His final line was 4-for-5 with two RBI and a strikeout. The 27-year-old now owns a .267/.331/.437 slash line with 15 home runs, 51 RBI, and 24 stolen bases. His multi-skill toolbox makes him a must-start in most fantasy leagues.
Baltimore Orioles second baseman/shortstop Jonathan had a nice overall game in Sunday's 5-4 loss to the Angels, going 3-for-4 with two singles, a double, two RBI, and a stolen base. The 28-year-old has been a serviceable fantasy option this season, posting a .262/.326/.421 slash line with 13 home runs, 47 RBI, and 22 stolen bases. He remains valuable in medium to deep leagues, especially roto leagues given his speed.
