Searching for the next can't miss hall of famers, I thought it would be fun to list those can't miss prospect 5-Tool OF prospects that swung and missed for whatever reason. I suppose there are a few guys that are currently playing that still might have a chance to rebound. But what about those 5-Tool OF prospects that crashed and burned???
Laynce Nix - still active but his great tools have not translated
Wily Mo Pena - his hole in his swing is the only thing bigger than his talent but potental still there
Reuben Mateo -was supposed to be the next big thing but accident derailed a promising can't miss prospect
Joe Borchard - how many times was this guy the top prospect in the White Sox organization? could still be a reserve
Ruben Rivera - maybe he shouldn't of stolen Jeter's bat?
Brian Anderson - Just has not been able to deal with MLB pitching
Jeremy Reed - Another failed White Sox OF prospect but has looked good this spring
Jeffrey Hammonds - Coming out of Stanford, he was a top talent though he did have a few productive seasons
Nigel Wilson - He was supposed to be a sure thing...guess not
Chad Mottola - As a Reds fan, its hard knowing that they could of had Derek Jeter in the 1992 draft instead
Adam Hyzdu - Coming out of HS, he was the next great hitter...nope
