Padres' Christian Villanueva: Homers again Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Villanueva went 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in Thursday's 3-0 win over the Rockies.

Villanueva followed his first-career homer Wednesday with an encore performance Thursday. The 26-year-old has started three of the Padres' last four games -- all against southpaws, but he could begin receiving starts against righties following his strong major-league debut. He's worth a flyer for power in deeper formats in the event he can carve out an everyday role.

Padres' Christian Villanueva: Hits first career homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Villanueva went 2-for-4 with his first major-league home run in Wednesday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

The 26-year-old rookie has appears to be platooning with Cory Spangenberg at the hot corner, starting two of the three games since his callup, both against southpaws. Villanueva slashed a healthy .296/.369/.528 in 108 games with Triple-A El Paso this season, so there is some power potential to be had if he plays his way into a larger role.

Padres' Christian Villanueva: Contract selected Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Villanueva had his contract purchased from Triple-A El Paso on Monday. He is starting at third base and batting sixth against the Diamondbacks.

Villanueva, who was non-tendered by the Cubs in the offseason before joining the Padres on a minor-league deal, will get his first taste of the majors after compiling a respectable .296/.369/.528 line with 20 homers in 109 games for the Chihuahuas. With Jose Pirela (finger) and Jabari Blash (undisclosed) both dealing with injuries, it wouldn't be surprising for Villanueva to see a few more starts down the stretch as the Padres get a look at him against big-league pitching.

Christian Villanueva: Non-tendered by Cubs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Villanueva was non-tendered by the Cubs on Friday and is now a free agent, the Chicago Tribune's Mark Gonzales reports.

The 25-year-old third baseman was in a pretty awful situation with the Cubs, as he was not only blocked at the big league level by Kris Bryant and even Javier Baez, but a superior big league ready third base prospect was also waiting in the wings ahead of him on the organizational depth chart in Jeimer Candelario. Villanueva is essentially ready for a shot with a non-contender. After hitting 18 homers and making a lot of contact at Triple-A last year, he is likely to be given a chance to make another club, even if it is only in a bench role.

Cubs' Christian Villanueva: Activated from DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Villanueva (ankle) was activated from the 60-day DL on Monday, MLB.com's Carrie Muskat reports.

He ended up missing the whole season with a broken ankle, but the Cubs still think he is worthy of a spot on the 40-man roster, despite their impressive infield depth. Look for him to provide organizational depth if he is not traded this offseason.
