Rotowire: Apr 20 / 3:30p ET
News: Villanueva has given up one earned run over his last four innings and now holds a 3.00 ERA and 1.00 WHIP.
Impact: While Villanueva is commonly used as a sixth or seventh inning guy, he also has two holds for the Padres in their first 14 games. The 32-year-old has experience as both a starter and reliever in the big leagues and will likely maintain a flexible-relief role for the Padres in 2016.
Rotowire: Mar 17 / 12:39p ET
News: Villanueva is likely to be used in a jack-of-all-trades role in the bullpen, the San Deigo Union-Tribune reports.
Impact: Villanueva has given up six runs in 4.2 innings this spring, which would appear to put him out of any consideration for a spot in the rotation. However, he could get some spot starts in a swingman role.
