WTM’S PIRATE PLAYER PROFILES

Villamar throws a mid-90s fastball and a good curve, but has trouble finding the strike zone.

2014
DSL:  4-2-0, 8.31 ERA, 2.35 WHIP, 26.0 IP, 10.0 BB/9, 9.3 K/9

Villamar had a rough first season, pitching strictly in relief.

2015
DSL:  1-0-0, 3.95 ERA, 1.61 WHIP, 41.0 IP, 8.3 BB/9, 12.3 K/9

The Pirates sent Villamar back to the DSL where he continued pitching in relief.  He had a much better season.  Opponents batted only .189 against him and slugged just .223, and he fanned well over a batter an inning, but he walked nearly a batter an inning.

2016
R:  1-0-0, 5.51 ERA, 1.96 WHIP, 16.1 IP, 10.5 BB/9, 7.7 K/9

Villamar pitched out of the bullpen in the GCL, walking more than a batter an inning.

The Pirates could try Villamar at Bristol, but he’d probably need to improve his control first.
