Brewers manager Craig Counsell said that if a true backup shortstop fails to make the Opening Day roster, Jonathan Villar or Hernan Perez could see time there.
While Villar is expected to mostly play second base for the Brew Crew this coming season, he has plenty of experience playing shortstop, too. He actually saw the bulk of his at-bats from that position this past season. To be specific, the versatile infielder appeared in 107 games as a shortstop, 42 as a third baseman and nine as a second baseman. His position flexibility is incredibly appealing from a fantasy perspective. Mar 15 - 5:39 PM
