Villar will be the starter at second base in 2017 following the acquisition of Travis Shaw, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

With Shaw claiming the hot corner from Villar, at least against righties, the 26-year-old will take over for Scooter Gennett as the starting second baseman for Milwaukee in 2017. Villar made starts at shortstop, second, and third base last season, and his versatility will likely lead to him seeing occasional starts at third and shortstop this season.
