The switch-hitting Dominican had a brief call-up with the Dodgers in 1977 before he was shipped to Houston in a deal that sent Jeffrey Leonard to the Astros for catcher Joe Ferguson midway in the 1978 season. In four seasons with Houston, Landestoy hit .250 with 47 steals while splitting time in the infield.

During the 1981 campaign, he was sent to the Reds for Harry Spilman and later returned to the Dodgers to close out his career. In eight overall seasons, Landestoy batted hit .237 with 54 steals.
