2B Jonathan Villar remained out of Milwaukee's starting lineup for a sixth straight game. Villar, whose season-long slump cost him his starting job at second base, has been limited to one pinch-hit appearance since a rough defensive showing in center field in a 9-3 loss at Cincinnati last week. Brewers manager Craig Counsell said the lack of playing time was because of Neil Walker's presence at second base and a desire to focus more on defense at the center field position where he'd used Villar sparingly in order to keep his switch-hitting bat in the lineup.

OF Jonathan Villar had been given a shot in center but committed a key error when he dropped a fly ball on Tuesday. Villar batted .333 in the three-game series at Cincinnati, and manager Craig Counsell is trying to find a spot defensively in order to keep his bat in the lineup. "It's a risk," Counsell said of playing Villar in center. "We've had to take risks to get to the spot we are, and we will continue to take risks. It's how we're here, in my opinion." Keon Broxton started in center on Wednesday.

2B Jonathan Villar resumed on-field workouts Monday for the first time since landing on the disabled list with a lower back strain on June 10.

If he shows up Tuesday in St. Louis and is itching to go then it will be at the short end (of the 10-day minimum). "He's young, he's durable. Hopefully, he'll recover quickly." X-rays were negative, Counsell said.

Wed Jun 706:452B Jonathan Villar not in Brewers' starting lineup Tuesday again...
2B Jonathan Villar was not in the Brewers' starting lineup Tuesday against the Giants as manager Craig Counsell went with hot-hitting Eric Sogard, instead. Villar has struggled from the onset of the season, batting just .207 while striking out 73 times in 56 games. It's a far cry from a year ago when Villar appeared to lock himself into the Brewers' leadoff spot by hitting .285 with 19 home runs, 63 RBI and 62 stolen bases. Counsell dropped Villar from first to sixth in the batting order last week in an effort to get him going, but it hasn't worked out, so Villar will share time with Sogard for the time being.
