Following Monday’s loss Jonathan Villar was sent down to the Oklahoma City RedHawks (AAA). Bo Porter following the loss to the Mariners made the announcement “This guy was are opening day starting short stop cause we believe he is an everyday player”. Porter is hoping Villar will learn a few things back in AAA “We stressed to him the importance of getting down to AAA and getting his concentration back”

Villar has been in the middle of a big slump, in June was batting right at .200, Villar entered last season as one of the Astros top prospects in there talent rich system.

No announcement was made on who will replace Villar in the lineup, but Porter did say it is likely a middle infielder that will replace Villar on the roster. Marwin Gonzalez should see his playing time increased with Villar leaving.
