Tigers option Brayan Villarreal


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2013) The Tigers optioned reliever Brayan Villarreal to Triple-A Toledo Wednesday as they officially brought on board Jose Valverde, the Detroit Free Press reports. 

Villarreal was given a laundry list of things to work on by manager Jim Leyland that would help him eventually return to the Tigers' bullpen. 

"You got to command your fastball better and you have to get more consistency with your slider. That was a no-brainer," Leyland said. "That’s a big arm. I don’t want anybody to think that all of a sudden we’re off Villarreal. Villarreal was at times lights-out during spring training and at times lights-out last year."

Villarreal was 0-2 with a 20.77 ERA over 4 1/3 innings in seven games.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Who is Brayan Villarreal?


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/28/2013) With Tigers reliever Bruce Rondon being demoted to Triple-A, the Tigers have a large void at closer. While there are four popular names bandied about to share saves -- Al Alburqurque, Joaquin Benoit, Phil Coke, and Octavio Dotel -- there is one hard-throwing member of the bullpen not being mentioned: Brayan Villarreal, who averaged 97.1 mph on his fastball in 2012, according to Fangraphs. 

This spring, Villarreal has a 2.25 ERA and 1.00 WHIP, with 14 strikeouts in 12 innings. The converted starter was shut down this winter when he encountered some elbow soreness, but he looks as good as any other reliever this spring. My personal stance is avoid all these relievers and go look elsewhere, but if they're all being gobbled up in your AL-only league -- and you really want a Detroit reliever to call your own -- Villarreal has just as much skill as the others in the mix.


Villarreal 100 percent


(2/14/2013) Tigers reliever Brayan Villarreal, who was shut down in the Venezuelan Winter League after complaining of elbow soreness, told the Free Press that he felt great after throwing off a mound on Wednesday. "I didn't feel anything at all, sore or anything," Villarreal said. "I felt great. 100 percent. I'm ready to do my job."

Tigers shut down Villarreal


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer

MLB.com reports that Villarreal was examined by Tigers doctors and found to have inflammation but no structural damage. Detroit officials decided to pull Villarreal from the winter leagues and have him focus instead on spring training.
