Junior closer has found his form

“It’s just small adjustments and trying to work ahead of the count. That’s the main thing,” Villarreal said. “I’m just happy that now I’m 100 percent healthy. I get a chance to pitch now, and I feel great.”

His time as a closer has seen him earn a 2-1 win-loss record. He is tied for second in the conference with six saves, which means he has been thrown into sticky situations and closed the games out for a win.

The most saves of all Houston pitchers last season was six and Villarreal has tied that.
