Description: Astros shortstop Jonathan Villar is sitting out for the first time this season Wednesday against Kansas City.
Insight: Villar is just one for his last 19 and has now struck out in 32.6 percent of his at bats this year. Marwin Gonzalez is playing shortstop on Wednesday and could see more time there in the future if Villar's struggles continue.

Insight: Villar doesn't hit for average (.245) or power (.646 OPS), but he is overflowing with speed. He's stolen 10 bases in just 15 games. He was expected to miss a couple of days and could return at any time.
