Villarreal stays with Tigers after kidnapping scare

Associated Press The Detroit Tigers say reliever Brayan Villarreal is not expected to leave spring training after his family escaped unharmed from a kidnapping attempt in Venezuela Friday night. Villarreal has remained with the team in Lakeland, Fla. Manager Jim Leyland did not want to comment further about the matter, saying Sunday: “The less said, the better.” Villarreal went 3-5 with a 2.63 ERA last year in 50 appearances. The 25-year-old right-hander struck out 66 hitters in 54⅔ innings.
