First example that pops into mind is Wondolowski. While he did play a couple games in his first year, he had a total of 5 minutes of playing time that season. His second year, he spread 198 total minutes across 6 games. So by the definition of "played games," he does fit the bill COMtnGuy and The Daily Wiz defined. But given how little he played and how little he did his first 6 years in the league, I think most people would've lumped him in the "wash out" category for all intents and purposes. Otherwise...the best example I have is Jordan Harvey, who didn't play a minute for the Rapids till '08, despite being drafted by us in '06. I wouldn't say there's many like him (I don't have the energy or resources to check all other players, either), but I would say it makes a case for a measure of patience.
