Christian Villanueva: Joining Yomiuri Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Villanueva (finger) was sold to the Yomiuri Giants of Nippon Professional Baseball in Japan on Tuesday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

It was originally reported that Villanueva was headed to the Hanshin Tigers, but he was actually sold to the Giants. The 27-year-old had a hot start with San Diego this season, but ended up with a .236/.299/.450 slash line before a broken finger ended his season in August. The Padres will instead look to their younger infield options, namely top prospect Fernando Tatis.

Christian Villanueva: Sold to Hanshin Tigers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Villanueva (finger) was sold to the Hanshin Tigers of Nippon Professional Baseball in Japan on Tuesday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

Villanueva got off to a hot start with the Padres in 2018, but finished the season with a .236/.299/.450 line across 110 games -- his season was cut short in August due to a broken finger. With prospect Fernando Tatis waiting in the wings, the Padres opted to see Villanueva to the Japanese club.

Padres' Christian Villanueva: Officially shut down
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Villanueva (finger) has been shut down for the season, MLB.com's AJ Cassavell reports.

Villanueva suffered a fractured middle finger Aug. 22, and was expected to miss three to four weeks. With nothing to play for over the final weeks of the season, the club formally shut down their young infielder for the 2018 campaign. Villanueva should be ready to compete for a starting job in camp next year after slashing .236/.299/.450 with 20 homers over 384 plate appearances in his first full season with the Friars.

Padres' Christian Villanueva: Will miss 3-to-4 weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Villanueva underwent X-rays on Wednesday that revealed a fractured right middle finger, which will sideline him for 3-to-4 weeks, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

Villanueva was already expected to miss 10 days after being placed on the disabled list Wednesday, but the back end of the updated timetable makes it possible that his 2018 season is over. The 27-year-old had fallen into a backup infield role after slashing .236/.299/.450 over 110 games this year. A corresponding move will be made Thursday to provide infield depth for the Padres.

Padres' Christian Villanueva: Headed to DL with broken finger
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Villanueva will be placed on the disabled list with a fractured finger, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

Villanueva was reportedly battling a "nagging" finger issue, but the issue is apparently more serious. It's not clear how long he'll be out. A corresponding move to fill his bench role is expected to come Thursday.
