Posted: Updated:

ESPN Deportes reports that three armed robbers attacked the family home of Tigers reliever Brayan Villareal Friday in Venezuela.  Villareal's agent told ESPN Deportes "The guys put a gun in the mouth of Brayan's father and his little 14-year-old brother, threatening that they would return and kidnap everybody if they said anything to the police."

GM Dave Dombrowski said that nobody in the family was harmed and that Brayan Villareal is still at their camp in Florida and plans to stay there.

Brayan Villareal is expected to make a relief appearance against the Houston Astros Monday.
