Failed Prospect #17: B.J. Wallace

Recently featured on Bad Wax, it’s our turn to look at the travesty of B.J. Wallace’s career.


1993 Bowman #676

Position: P
Bio/Summary: B.J. makes a great case for one of the biggest draft flops of all time. I really thought he was going to end up being a top-of-the-rotation ace when the Expos picked him up, but he got absolutely brutalized by injuries and never even made the majors. Heck, he never made it past age 25. I would give anything to be able to go back and look at what his workload was back then. I have no doubt that he was throwing way too many pitches and the injuries were avoidable. Now all we’re left with is a handful of memories.

In Better Times.

In Better Times.

How Did I Get It?: Pack of 1993 Bowman pulled from a jumbo box.
Did You Know?: The Phillies picked him in the 1995 Rule V Draft. He did not pitch at all in 1995.
Rating:  5/10 – I don’t know. 1993 Bowman is so milquetoast, and the shot is pretty bland on its own, too. I’d like something cool to blow me away soon.
