BALLER MOVE: Add Immediately.

ANALYSIS: Need stolen bases? Need Everth Cabrera insurance in case he gets suspended? Run and add 22-year-old Houston shortstop Jonathan Villar to your team immediately! Villar stole 4 bags last week in his first taste of the majors after swiping 31 bases in 91 minor league games for the Astros Triple-A affiliate. Villar won't offer much in terms of batting average, but he's got modest pop to go along with his elite speed and will score plenty of runs hitting atop the Houston lineup.
