News: Villanueva will make his regularly-scheduled start next weekend against the Reds,'s Carrie Muskat reports. Impact: Villanueva was roughed up to the tune of nine runs over three innings Saturday against the Cardinals, leading some to speculate that his job as the Cubs' No. 5 starter could be in jeopardy. He'll hang on to this role for the next time through the rotation at least, but if he puts up another shaky performance, look for the Cubs to consider other options.(RotoWire, )

News: Villanueva was victimized by the Cardinals on Saturday, allowing nine runs on 10 hits over three innings. Impact: Villanueva didn't allow any walks but also struck out just two of the 21 batters he faced in a wholly disastrous outing. While he allowed just one run in his only other start this season, he may not have much margin for error as the No. 5 starter. His next outing lines up for Saturday against the Reds, but the Cubs may opt to skip his turn in the rotation.(RotoWire, )

Impact: After Villanueva pitched out of the bullpen in the first two games of the season, the team was forced to reconsider him as Sunday's starter.
