Biographical Information[edit]

Catcher Jett Bandy made his major league debut with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim at the end of the 2015 season after having been a 41st round pick by the Angels in the 2008 amateur draft. He went 1 for 2 in only 2 appearances his first season, bu the one hit was a homer off Glen Perkins of the Minnesota Twins on September 20th. He then hit .234 in 70 games as the team's main back-up catcher in 2016.

Bandy was traded to the Milwaukee Brewers in return for another back-up catcher, Martin Maldonado, as well as Drew Gagnon, before the 2017 season and started the year red hot. In 15 games in April, he hit .327 with 4 homers and 8 RBIs, then cooled down in May, when he was at .218, although with another 2 homers and 10 RBIs. He then fell into a deep slump, however and was only 2 for 43 when on June 25th, he was sent down to the AAA Colorado Springs SkySox. The Brewers were concerned with his lack of hitting and had the opportunity to upgrade the position when former two-time All-Star Stephen Vogt was placed on waivers by the Oakland A's. He finished the season at .207 in 60 games, with 6 homers and 18 RBIs, almost all of his production having come in the first month.
