Bryan LaHair went from being a can’t miss Major League Baseball prospect with the Seattle Mariners to the next big thing for the Chicago Cubs. After appearing in just 20 games for Chicago in 2011, LaHair got off to a blazing start with the Cubs in 2012. So hot, in fact, that he was a Cubs’ representative in the 2012 MLB All-Star game in Kansas City, going into the game with a .286 batting average and 14 home runs and 30 RBI in his first full season.

Yet, as the year progressed, LaHair regressed and was eventually replaced by the new future first baseman of the Cubs in Anthony Rizzo. After the All-Star break, LaHair hut just .202 with only two more home runs and 10 RBI throughout the unofficial second half of the season. He finished the year with an overall average of .259 with 26 home runs and 40 RBI in what could turn out to be his first – and final – full season playing MLB for any big league team.
