Astros optioned RHP Henry Villar to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Villar failed to win a spot in the Astros' bullpen this spring decent a decent stat line. He'll operate as organizational relief depth throughout the year for Houston.

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.

Astros recalled RHP Henry Villar from Double-A Corpus Christi.

Villar, 23, posted a 4.15 ERA over 11 starts and 25 relief appearances with the Hooks, averaging 6.0 K/9 and 3.7 BB/9. Though he was used exclusively as a starting pitcher over the past two months at Double-A, he'll be a reliever with the Astros down the stretch.
