Orioles' Jonathan Villar: Scores three runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Villar went 3-for-5 with a double, a solo home run, a stolen base and three runs scored Wednesday against the Blue Jays.

Villar enjoyed a productive day at the plate, highlighted by a solo home run in the fourth inning followed by a stolen base in the eighth. He now has 23 homers and 36 swiped bags in 152 games on the season. While his aggressiveness on the basepaths doesn't come as a big surprise, his .466 slugging percentage is nearly 50 points above his career average.

Orioles' Jonathan Villar: Steals base No. 35
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Villar went 1-for-4 with two RBI, a run scored, a walk and a stolen base in the Orioles' 8-2 win over the Tigers on Sunday.

Villar provided the Orioles with some insurance in the sixth inning after plating two with a single to center field. The speedster then stole second base for his 35th theft of the season, which cements him in fourth place in the MLB. Sunday marked just the second game since Aug. 31 in which the 28-year-old brought at least one of his teammates home. Villar hasn't been too hot at the plate lately but still has a .276/.343/.452 triple slash along with 21 home runs and 67 RBI through 647 plate appearances on the season. He's expected to be in the starting lineup again Monday in the series finale against the Tigers.

Orioles' Jonathan Villar: Slugs three-run homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Villar went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run Wednesday against the Dodgers.

Villar took Caleb Ferguson deep in the seventh inning to record his 21st homer of the season. It was his first long ball since Aug. 25, though he's recorded at least one hit in 11 of his 14 starts in that span. He's quietly put together a very strong campaign, chipping in 33 stolen bases and 97 runs across 145 games.

Orioles' Jonathan Villar: Steals another base
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Villar went 1-for-4 with one run scored and one steal in the Orioles 6-4 loss against the Royals on Sunday.

Villar just won't stop running as 28-year-old swiped his fourth bag in two days for the Orioles. He now is tied with Ronald Acuna for third in the MLB at 33 apiece and is definitely on track for several more before the season comes to a close.

Orioles' Jonathan Villar: Runs wild in rout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Villar went 2-for-4 with a walk, a double, three runs scored, an RBI and three stolen bases in Friday's 14-2 rout of the Royals.

The 28-year-old actually ran for the cycle, if there is such a thing -- he swiped second base in the second inning, third base in the third, and then stole home on a botched pickoff attempt in the seventh. Villar has topped 30 steals for the second straight year and the third time in his career, and on the season he's slashing .278/.347/.464 with 20 home runs, 62 RBI, 91 runs and 32 stolen bases.

Orioles' Jonathan Villar: Connects on 19th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Villar went 2-for-4 with a solo home run Saturday in the Orioles' 7-1 win over the Rays.

The middle infielder has enjoyed a nice late-August surge in the power department, as he's gone deep four times in the past six games to match his previous career high of 19 home runs, which he established back in 2016 with Milwaukee. He'll look to keep rolling in the series finale Sunday, when he'll start at second base and man the leadoff spot, per Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports.

Orioles' Jonathan Villar: Goes yard again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Villar went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run and a walk Wednesday against the Royals.

Villar took Mike Montgomery deep to jump start the Orioles' offense and record his 17th homer of the season. He's hit well at the plate this month, reaching base safely in all but two of 20 games while also racking up four homers, 10 RBI, 14 runs scored and five stolen bases. Villar has largely delivered as expected this season, as he's swiped 28 bases, scored 84 runs and hit a respectable .278 in 127 games.

Orioles' Jonathan Villar: Launches 16th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Villar went 2-for-4 with a walk and a solo home run in Monday's 5-4 loss to the Royals.

While Baltimore as a whole is struggling, Villar is enjoying a great August. The infielder is slashing .343/.457/.612 through 18 games with three homers, five steals, eight RBI and 13 runs, and he's now three long balls shy of tying his career high of 19, set in 2016.

Orioles' Jonathan Villar: Swipes two bags
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Villar went 2-for-3 with two stolen bases and two runs in a 13-7 loss against the Red Sox on Sunday.

The 28-year-old isn't quite the threat on the bases that he was when he posted 62 steals in 2016, but he is on track to swipe 30 bags for the second straight season. Villar is also on pace to set a new career high in the homer department (15) to accompany his .274 average, 54 RBI, 82 runs and 28 steals in 482 at-bats this season.

Orioles' Jonathan Villar: Completes quest for cycle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Villar went 4-for-5 with a double, a triple, a home run, two RBI and two runs scored Monday against the Yankees.

Villar tied the game at six in the sixth inning with a two-run blast, but the Yankees would pull ahead in the eighth and come away with a 9-6 victory. The 28-year-old infielder has been hot at the dish of late, raising his average 16 points over his last 11 contests. He's 19-for-48 with four homers and nine RBI during that stretch.

Orioles' Jonathan Villar: Collects three hits versus Angels
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Villar finished 3-for-4 with a double, two RBI, a stolen base and a run scored during Sunday's 5-4 loss to the Angels.

Villar accounted for three of his club's five hits on the day, plating runs with a double in the third inning and a single in the fifth. He also singled and stole second in the seventh, giving him 22 swipes on the season. Villar now has 10 hits, nine runs scored, five steals and five RBI over his last four contests.

Orioles' Jonathan Villar: Continues impressive series
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Villar went 3-for-3 with a solo home run, an additional run scored and a walk in Saturday's 8-7 win over the Angels.

Villar was the designated hitter for the game, as he is battling minor leg soreness. The ailment didn't seem to hinder the 28-year-old, who provided a go-ahead home run in the sixth inning and scored another run on a Hanser Alberto single in the eighth inning. Villar has gone 7-for-14 with two homers, three RBI and eight runs scored in the first three games of the series versus the Angels, lifting his season batting line to .257/.322/.415 with 13 homers, 21 steals, 67 runs scored and 45 RBI.

Orioles' Jonathan Villar: Playing through leg soreness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Villar is serving as the designated hitter Saturday since he is managing some minor leg soreness, Nathan Ruiz of The Baltimore Sun reports.

Villar was originally scheduled to play the keystone Saturday, but he was instead pulled from fielding duty. The fact the 28-year-old remains in the lineup indicates there's no real cause for concern. Villar is 4-for-11 with six runs scored, four stolen bases and a home run through the first two games of the series.

Orioles' Jonathan Villar: Homers, swipes three bases
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Villar went 2-for-8 with a two-run homer and three stolen bases while scoring thrice in a 16-inning victory over the Angels on Thursday.

Villar slugged a two-out, two-run homer in the top of the 16th inning to plate the winning runs in a game that lasted over six hours. The opportunity would not have come if not for his arm -- he threw out the potential winning run at the plate in the bottom half of the previous inning to extend the game. For good measure, Villar was a terror on the basepaths, swiping three bases for the first time this season. The heroic performance followed a nine-game slump in which Villar had hit a meek .100 (4-for-40). Overall, he is slashing .248/.311/.401 with 12 homers, 62 runs scored and 20 steals in 440 plate appearances this season.

Orioles' Jonathan Villar: Ends homer drought
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Villar went 2-for-3 with a solo home run, two runs and a walk during a 5-0 victory against the Red Sox on Sunday.

While this was his fifth multi-hit game in his last 11 contests, Villar has shown virtually no power, with only one double during that stretch. This was Villar's first homer since June 26, but despite the long homer drought, Villar still has an outside shot to set a new career high in the category or at least pass his total from last season. He will need 15 to best his 2018 total and 20 homers for a new high-water mark. Villar is hitting .258 with 11 home runs, 42 RBI, 59 runs and 17 steals in 376 at-bats this season.

Orioles' Jonathan Villar: Five-game hitting streak
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Villar went 2-for-5 with a double in Monday's 6-3 loss to the Rays.

Villar, who is starting again Tuesday as the Orioles' leadoff man, will carry a five-game hitting streak into the contest. The middle infielder delivered his 10th long ball of the season in the first game of that streak, making him one of only 12 players in the majors who have reached double figures in both home runs and steals.

Orioles' Jonathan Villar: Productive afternoon in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Villar went 3-for-4 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's 10-5 loss to the Padres.

His fourth-inning shot off Matt Strahm briefly brought the O's to within a run at 4-3, before the wheels came off entirely for Dylan Bundy and the Baltimore bullpen. Villar is slashing just .252/.315/.415 on the year, but his counting stats -- 10 homers, 15 steals, 33 RBI and 47 runs in 80 games -- have given him solid fantasy value.

Orioles' Jonathan Villar: Posts homer, stolen base
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Villar went 2-for-4 with a three-run homer, two runs, a stolen base and a walk in an 8-4 victory over the Mariners on Saturday.

This was the first time all season Villar went deep and stole a base in the same game, though he has a pair of homers in the last five games and three steals in his past seven contests. Overall, Villar is batting .249 with nine home runs, 31 RBI, 45 runs and 15 steals in 297 at-bats this season.

Orioles' Jonathan Villar: Launches eighth homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Villar went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 16-2 loss to the A's.

The second baseman has gone fairly cold in June, slashing .167/.220/.278 through 16 games with a homer, three steals, three RBI and four runs. Villar is still on pace for solid power-speed numbers with eight HR and 14 SB in 73 contests, but he's unlikely to be an asset in batting average or OBP in the second half.

Orioles' Jonathan Villar: Back in Saturday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Villar (thumb) is starting at second base and hitting fifth Saturday against the Astros, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

He missed two games with a minor thumb injury. Villar is hitting .260 with four steals and three home runs over his last 22 games.
