Reclamation project probably isn't the right term, as that implies that he was once an established player that fell into tough times. He's always been kind of an enigma.

I think the term "reclamation project" has evolved into something people use when they talk about a player that is brought in for cheap who hasn't fulfilled his perceived potential. It's not appropriate within the literal definition of reclamation, but I think the intention is understood.
