Failed Prospect: Josh Labandeira

Man, this guy was EVERYWHERE in sets in 2004. It seems to have been based on the strength of a .324/.386/.412 first part of 2003 with High-A Brevard County. But was it meant to be? The guy was a sixth-round pick, after all.

Advanced to AA in 2004, at the age of 25, he went .270/.357/.381 and earned a promotion to the majors.

In 14 PAs with Montreal, he had no hits and four strikeouts. He returned to AA in 1995 and hit 273/376/355 between AA and AAA. But no callup.

He never came back to the majors, and seems to be out of baseball now, but there is an interesting twist to this: he seems to have pitched in a few games in 2007 and 2008. He was decent in 2007, but blew it in 2008. Now, it was probably just blowout games, but a tantalizing thought: what if he’d pulled a reverse Ankiel?
