Baptiste has had 4 permanent clubs in 15yrs, not sure how you get journeyman out of that.
Simply because he's also been loaned out three times in the last three seasons, including to 1st division Sheffield Utd.

He made around 170 apps for Mansfield & 170 apps for Blackpool, he didn't get a look in at Middlesbrough which is no surprise as they finished runners up in the championship with a settled back four and last season were a premier league club.

Jordan Rhodes was at Middlesbrough last season & coudnt a kick he was loaned out to Sheff Wed, he's now at his 5th permanent club & has had 4 loans in his career, he's only 27 is he a journeyman?

Wasn't that just to get his fitness back after breaking his leg playing for Boro?

Yes, I think you're right as the Sheffield Utd loan was after his leg brake. Boro then loaned him to Preston last season and have now released him. Previously he was at Bolton and in his second year there he was loaned out to Blackburn.
