Villar wasn't able to get involved on run-producing plays, but he singled and stole second in the fourth inning. The infielder has posted multiple hits in four of his last six games, going 8-for-21 (.381) in that span. He's slashing .253/.333/.413 with seven stolen bases, five home runs, 14 RBI and 23 runs scored across 168 plate appearances this season.

Mets' Jonathan Villar: Returns to lineup Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Villar (hamstring) is back in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Orioles, batting leadoff and playing third base.

Villar left last Wednesday's contest with hamstring tightness, but he was able to come off the bench Friday and Saturday before sitting again Sunday. He's now ready to rejoin the starting nine.

Mets' Jonathan Villar: Not in lineup Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Villar (hamstring) is not in the starting lineup Sunday against the Padres, but the veteran told reporters that he is available off the bench, Anthony DiComo of reports.

Villar did not start Saturday's game but wound tallying a pair of hits and one RBI during three at-bats off the bench. The utility man will remain out of the starting lineup Sunday as the Mets continue to bring him along slowly, but he'll remain an option off the bench during the series finale.

Mets' Jonathan Villar: Remains sidelined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Villar (hamstring) remains out of the lineup Saturday against San Diego, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

A sore right hamstring has now cost Villar three straight starts, though he did make an appearance off the bench Friday, suggesting that he won't miss too much more time. Jose Peraza shifts to third base in his absence, with Travis Blankenhorn starting at second.

Mets' Jonathan Villar: Likely available off bench Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Luis Rojas said Friday that Villar (hamstring) is feeling better and is expected to be available off the bench Friday against the Padres, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports.

Villar is not in New York's starting lineup for the second straight game, but based on Rojas's comments, the speedy utility man could return to the starting nine as soon as Saturday.

Mets' Jonathan Villar: Remains out of lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Villar (hamstring) is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Padres, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

Villar will be out of the lineup for a second straight game after he exited Wednesday's contest with right hamstring tightness, but he'll be available off the bench if needed, Anthony DiComo of reports. Brandon Drury will start at the hot corner and bat fifth.

Mets' Jonathan Villar: Not starting Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Villar (hamstring) isn't starting Thursday's game against the Padres.

Villar was removed from Wednesday's game due to right hamstring tightness. It's not yet clear whether he could be available off the bench Thursday, but Brandon Drury will start at third base and bat sixth.

Mets' Jonathan Villar: Exits with hamstring tightness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Villar was removed from Wednesday's game at Arizona with right hamstring tightness, Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News reports.

The 30-year-old went 2-for-4 with a double and two runs before leaving with the injury. Villar has filled in well for the injury-plagued Mets, and it would be another brutal break should he require a stint on the injured list.

Mets' Jonathan Villar: Sets table Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Villar went 2-for-3 with a walk, a double, a run scored and a stolen base in Tuesday's win over the Rockies.

The veteran infielder was in the leadoff spot for the injury-ravaged Mets and despite being caught stealing twice, he mostly made good on the opportunity by reaching base more than once in a game for the first time since May 11. Villar is slashing a shaky .213/.245/.426 in 12 games since that date, but he's added value with his legs by recording four of his five steals on the season.

Mets' Jonathan Villar: Belts fourth homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Villar went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 5-4 loss to Atlanta.

Villar opened the scoring with a solo shot off Atlanta starter Charlie Morton in the fourth inning. The 30-year-old Villar has hit safely in seven of his last eight games, with three home runs, five RBI, six runs scored and two stolen bases in that span. The infielder has a .226/.308/.409 slash line with four homers, 12 RBI, 12 runs scored and three stolen bases through 104 plate appearances.

Mets' Jonathan Villar: Goes yard Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Villar went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Friday's 3-2 loss to Tampa Bay.

Villar accounted for all of the Mets' run production when he took Tampa Bay ace Tyler Glasnow deep in the fifth inning. The 30-year-old Villar has hit safely in three straight games for the first time this season. The versatile infielder is slashing .233/.333/.384 with two home runs, nine RBI, nine runs scored and two stolen bases across 84 plate appearances. He's only attempted three steals this year -- Villar is usually given more of a green light on the basepaths.

Mets' Jonathan Villar: Pops first homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Villar went 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Cardinals.

After going 0-for-3 as the third baseman in the matinee, Villar slid to shortstop for the nightcap to give Francisco Lindor a breather and launched his first homer of the year, a solo shot off Johan Oviedo in the fourth inning. Villar has moved into the starting lineup with both J.D. Davis (hand) and Luis Guillorme (oblique) sidelined, but the veteran infielder is still looking for his first stolen base of 2021 and is slashing only .235/.278/.392 with a 2:16 BB:K through 22 games.

Mets' Jonathan Villar: Gets third straight start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Villar will start at third base and bat seventh in the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader with the Cardinals, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

Villar will stick in the starting nine at the hot corner for the third game in a row. The Mets plan to have the 30-year-old fill a utility role when the squad is at full strength, but he looks like he'll be the primary option at third base while J.D. Davis (hand) and Luis Guillorme (oblique) are on the 10-day injured list. Villar has yet to get going at the plate while receiving spotty playing time up to this point in the season, compiling a .227/.277/.341 slash line with no home runs or stolen bases across his first 47 plate appearances with the Mets.

Mets' Jonathan Villar: Playing time to increase
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Villar will split time with Luis Guillrome at third base while J.D. Davis (hand) is on the injured list.

The two won't be deployed in a strict platoon as Villar is a switch hitter, but Guillorme could see more playing time due to his superior defensive reputation. Villar also hasn't done much at the plate so far to push for a bigger role, going 3-for-14 (.214) with an 0:7 BB:K, although two of his hits have gone for extra bases (one double and one triple).

Mets' Jonathan Villar: Three hits in Wednesday's start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Villar went 3-for-5 with a double, a triple and a run scored in Wednesday's 8-2 loss to the Phillies.

Getting his first start of the season and hitting sixth while subbing in at second base for a resting Jeff McNeil, Villar had two of the Mets' three extra-base hits on the afternoon. The veteran infielder hasn't had much of a chance to make an impact for the Mets yet, but with J.D. Davis (wrist) currently sidelined, Villar's big performance might earn him more action in the short term.

Mets' Jonathan Villar: Gets first start of 2021
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Villar (groin) will start at second base and bat sixth Wednesday in Philadelphia.

Villar concluded spring training with a minor groin injury in tow, but the Mets didn't deem it serious enough to keep him off the 26-man Opening Day roster. After appearing as a substitute in the Mets' first two games, Villar will now get the chance to make his first start of 2021, filling in at the keystone for a resting Jeff McNeil.

Mets' Jonathan Villar: Takes part in infield drills
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mets manager Luis Rojas said Villar (groin) was able to field grounders at third base and shortstop during his workout Sunday, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.

Villar won't be ready to play in Monday's Grapefruit League finale against the Cardinals while he manages the groin injury, but Rojas said he expects the speedy veteran to avoid the injured list and break camp as a member of the 26-man roster. The groin injury could limit Villar's involvement in the run game early on during the season, but he'll likely see an overall decline in his opportunities in any case now that he's expected to settle into a utility role with the Mets rather than being a lineup regular.

Mets' Jonathan Villar: Dealing with minor groin injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mets manager Luis Rojas said Saturday that Villar is dealing with a minor groin injury, Anthony DiComo of reports.

Rojas didn't sound too concerned about Villar's injury, and there's a chance that the 29-year-old could return before spring training wraps up. Villar is expected to serve as utility depth for the Mets to begin the season, but it's not yet clear whether he'll be available in time for Opening Day.

Mets' Jonathan Villar: Struggling at plate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Villar has gone 4-for-29 (.138) this spring with one home run and a 2:13 BB:K.

The veteran infielder is expected to fill a utility role this season for the Mets, but Villar posted a career-low .593 OPS in 2020 and hasn't done much to tease a turnaround in Grapefruit League play. It's also not clear where he might be able to get consistent playing time barring an injury to a starter, as even if J.D. Davis' glove becomes too much of an issue at third base, Luis Guillorme seems to be the preferred defensive replacement for manager Luis Rojas.
