Henry Villar got the start on a bullpen day for the Astros on Saturday and allowed two runs in two innings against the Nationals.

The Astros are still sorting through a bullpen in which only Brandon Lyon, Wilton Lopez, Mark Melancon and Jeff Fulchino seem to have secure jobs. Villar and Rule 5 pick Aneury Rodriguez (3 ER in 1 IP) hurt their cases today, while lefties Gustavo Chacin and Fernando Abad probably helped themselves with scoreless innings.
