Description: Carlos Villanueva beat out Chris Rusin for the Cubs' fifth rotation spot even though he had a 5.60 ERA in 17 2/3 innings this spring. SOURCE: Gordon Wittenmyer, Chicago Sun-Times
Insight: Rusin (7.45 ERA in 19 1/3 innings) was worse than Villanueva. Once Jake Arrieta (shoulder) is ready to go near the end of April, Villanueva will move back to long-relief and spot-start duty.
 
3/16/2014 11:17:00 AM
Description: Right-hander Carlos Villanueva is likely to begin the season in Chicago's starting rotation. SOURCE: Chicago Sun-Times
Insight: That's only because Jake Arrieta is out with a shoulder injury. Villanueva hasn't posted an ERA lower than four since 2007. He won't attract much fantasy interest outside of NL-only leagues.
 
Cold7/21/2013 10:32:00 AM
Description: Chicago manager Dale Sveum hinted that Carlos Villanueva's recent struggles might cost him his spot in the starting rotation. SOURCE: Chicago Tribune
Insight: Of course, if Matt Garza is traded before the deadline (which seems like a very realistic possibility), the Cubs may not have a choice. Villanueva is just 1-5 with a 4.46 ERA in 11 starts this season.
 
7/4/2013 2:28:00 PM
Description: Cubs pitcher Carlos Villanueva will rejoin the rotation following the trade of Scott Feldman to the Orioles, according to Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times.
Insight: The Cubs moved Villanueva to the bullpen when Matt Garza came off the DL. He went 1-3 with a 3.93 ERA in 52 2/3 innings over eight starts and has posted a 2.04 ERA in 17 2/3 as a reliever. Owners in deep leagues should consider the righty.
 
5/18/2013 4:10:00 PM
Description: Cubs starter Carlos Villanueva will shift to the bullpen when Matt Garza returns to the rotation, according to Bruce Miles of the Daily Herald.
Insight: Villanueva had a 1.53 ERA after four starts, but his ERA has risen to 3.93 after throwing three non-quality starts in his last four outings. Meanwhile, Scott Feldman has been excellent, so Villanueva is the odd man out.
 
5/14/2013 11:07:00 PM
Description: Cubs starter Carlos Villanueva was battered for 12 hits and seven earned runs in five innings Tuesday against the Rockies.
Insight: That won't help Villanueva (1-3, 3.93 ERA, 1.14 WHIP) keep his spot in the rotation when Matt Garza returns next week. Cubs manager Dale Sveum said that he might go to a six-man rotation in the weeks following Garza's return, but we can't see him sticking with that for long. Either Villanueva or Scott Feldman will move to the bullpen eventually.
 
Hot4/23/2013 10:39:00 PM
Description: Cubs starter Carlos Villanueva has thrown four straight quality starts to begin the season.
Insight: Villanueva took a 2-1 lead into the ninth inning Tuesday against the Reds but he walked Shin-Soo Choo leading off the inning and was removed after a sacrifice bunt. Carlos Marmol came on and promptly allowed a game-tying single to Joey Votto. Villanueva is still just 1-0 despite allowing just 16 hits and five earned runs in 29 1/3 innings this season.
 
Hot4/18/2013 9:11:00 PM
Description: Cubs starter Carlos Villanueva allowed two runs on four hits over seven innings Thursday against Texas to pick up his first win of the season.
Insight: Villanueva only allowed nine hits and one run over his first two starts but he had two no decisions. The right-hander had some success after joining Toronto's rotation last season and should be owned in most leagues.
 
12/20/2012 3:29:00 PM
Description: In addition to Edwin Jackson, the Chicago Cubs have signed former Blue Jays righty Carlos Villanueva to a two-year contract worth $10 million. SOURCE: Jon Heyman, CBSSports.com
Insight: Villanueva pitched out of the bullpen at the start of last season but joined the rotation in late June. He went 5-4 with a 3.03 ERA in his first 11 starts but tired down the stretch and went 0-3 with an 8.10 ERA in September. He should have an easier time in the National League and will have some mixed league value if he starts.
 
10/1/2012 6:58:00 PM
Description: Blue Jays right-hander Carlos Villanueva (fatigue) will not make his final start of the season Tuesday against Minnesota.
Insight: Villanueva was dealing with fatigue and discomfort in late September and has allowed 13 earned runs in his last seven innings, raising his ERA from 3.42 to 4.16.
 
9/25/2012 9:15:00 PM
Description: Blue Jays right-hander Carlos Villanueva (fatigue) is "back to normal" and is expected to start Wednesday, according to the team's official website.
Insight: It was reported earlier this week that Villanueva was dealing with fatigue and discomfort. He allowed seven runs in 2 1/3 innings in his last start but it looks like he's feeling better so go ahead and start him Wednesday against the Orioles.
 
Hot8/30/2012 10:26:00 PM
Description: Blue Jays right-hander Carlos Villanueva snapped a four-decision losing streak with six shutout innings Thursday against the Rays.
Insight: Villanueva (7-4, 3.10 ERA) has been excellent since joining the rotation. He has been quality in seven of 11 starts.
 
Hot8/13/2012 10:52:00 PM
Description: Blue Jays right-hander Carlos Villanueva has been excellent since joining the rotation in late June. In eight starts, Villanueva is 4-2 with a 3.04 ERA and a 50/14 K/BB in 47 1/3 innings.
Insight: Villanueva was in line for his seventh win of the season after throwing seven innings of one-run ball Monday against the White Sox but Blue Jays closer Casey Janssen allowed a game-tying solo homer to Adam Dunn in the ninth inning. The Toronto right-hander is worth a look in deeper mixed leagues.
 
7/21/2012 11:08:00 PM
Description: Blue Jays right-hander Carlos Villanueva improved to 5-0 with another quality start Saturday against Boston.
Insight: Villanueva started 13 games for Toronto last season and went an uninspiring 5-3 with a 5.15 ERA, but he's 3-0 with a 2.31 ERA and a 26/8 K/BB in 23 1/3 innings over four starts this season. He's worth a look in deeper leagues even though that ERA will most certainly rise.
 
7/15/2012 5:15:00 PM
Description: Blue Jays right-hander Carlos Villanueva tossed his second straight scoreless start Sunday against Cleveland.
Insight: Villanueva started 13 games for Toronto last season and went an uninspiring 5-3 with a 5.15 ERA, but he's 2-0 with a 1.59 ERA and a 21/6 K/BB in 17 innings over three starts this season so he has some upside.
 
7/4/2012 10:17:00 PM
Description: Blue Jays right-hander Carlos Villanueva shut out Kansas City over six four-hit innings Wednesday to earn his third win of the season. Villanueva struck out seven with no walks in his second start of the year.
Insight: Villanueva started 13 games for Toronto last season and went 5-3 with a 5.15 ERA. He's worth a look in AL-only leagues but mixed leaguers can stay away from him.
 
6/17/2012 10:57:00 AM
Description: Blue Jays reliever Carlos Villanueva is likely to move into the starting rotation while Brandon Morrow, Kyle Drabek and Drew Hutchison are out with injuries.
Insight: Villanueva started 13 games for Toronto last season and seems like a decent enough replacement for the injured trio of Morrow, Drabek and Hutchison. He has pitched well in 21 appearances out of the bullpen this season (2-0, 3.48 ERA) and could be a nice low-risk, high-reward starting pitching option in deeper fantasy formats.
 
12/3/2010 3:43:00 PM
Description: The Jays have acquired RP Carlos Villanueva for a player to be named later. SOURCE: Tom Haudricourt via Twitter
Insight: He has value in holds leagues and could get a save or two for the Jays.
 
5/20/2010 11:36:00 PM
Description: Villnueva picked up his first save of the season on Thursday against Pittsburgh.
Insight: With Trevor Hoffman out of the closer role for Milwaukee right now, Villanueva is a logical candidate to take over the role. He has a 2.91 ERA and a 27/8 K/BB ration over 21.2 innings this season, and should be added in virtually all fantasy leagues. (SportsBuff.com)
 
1/27/2010 8:37:00 AM
Description: Villanueva avoided arbitration, agreeing to a one-year, $950,000 contract with the Brewers on Tuesday.
Insight: Villanueva had a 5.34 ERA in 96 innings last season with the Brewers. (SportsBuff.com)
