Hoover is a reliever. Its where his value lies and probably would be better out of Cincy. He'd be a guy I'd be offering around to try to get a bat.
I think Villarreal is a back end guy and I would say he is more than Elizardo was. Better stuff. Control isn't quite as good, but it is still pretty good. Villarreal has two above average pitches to his name.
