Mar 23-It appears that Villanueva will be the odd man out and start the season at Triple-A Nashville, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Recommendation: Nothing is official at this point, but Claudio Vargas is out of options and it's not likely that the Brewers would send Dave Bush to the minors. That leaves Manny Parra and Villanueva for one rotation spot and Parra is simply a better pitcher. The rotation will get even tighter when Yovanni Gallardo returns from the DL in mid-April so it may take some injuries before Villanueva gets another shot.
News from rotowire. Now the list seems to keep on getting shorter! I am really thinking hard about picking up Parra.
