10 One-Year Braves who can help you ace Immaculate Grid

10. Raul Mondesí

Teams played for: Dodgers (1993-1999), Blue Jays (2001-2002), Yankees (2002-2003), Diamondbacks (2003), Pirates (2004), Angels (2004), Braves (2005).

Potential 1% combos: Raul Mondesí is known for winning the Rookie of the Year with the Dodgers in 1994, but most fans likely forgot he even played for the Braves. A combo with any team will get you a sub-5%, but a combo without the Dodgers will likely be the most effective (Braves/Diamondbacks, Angels/Braves Pirates/Angels, Braves/Yankees).

9. Ray King

Teams played for: Cubs (1999), Brewers (2000-2002; 2007), Braves (2003), Cardinals (2004-2005), Rockies (2006), Nationals (2007; 2008)

Potential 1% combos: Essentially any combination of the teams he played for. King was a middle reliever who didn't stay on teams for very long and retired almost 15 years ago.

8. Gaylord Perry

Teams played for: Giants (1962-1971), Indians [Guardians] (1972-1975), Rangers (1975-1977; 1980), Padres (1978-1979), Yankees (1980), Braves (1981), Mariners (1982-1983), Royals (1983)

Potential 1% combos: Gaylord Perry spent a bunch of time with the Giants, but a combo with the Braves and a non-Giants team should do the trick (Braves/Rangers, Braves/Mariners, Braves/Royals, Braves/Padres). He's also an option for Braves/Hall-of-Famer.

7. Kenny Lofton

Teams played for: Astros (1991), Indians [Guardians] (1992-1996; 1998-2001; 2007), Braves (1997), White Sox (2002), Giants (2002), Pirates (2003), Cubs (2003), Yankees (2004), Phillies (2005), Dodgers (2006), Rangers (2007)

Potential 1% combos: Any combo that doesn't include the Guardians will do the trick. Lofton spent a lot of his caeer bouncing from team to team, and not many fans remember which teams he played for unless he played for yours. A Pirates/Braves combo or a Astros/Braves combo could get you even lower than 0.5%.

6. Jose Bautista

Teams played for: Orioles (2004), Devil Rays [Rays] (2004), Royals (2004), Pirates (2004-2008), Blue Jays (2008-2017), Braves (2018), Mets (2018), Phillies (2018).

Potential 1% combos: Jose Bautista is a well-known Blue Jays, so the best combos will probably be combining one of the four teams from his first year in the bigs with one of the three teams from his last year in the bigs.

Orioles/Braves, Rays/Braves, Royals/Braves are combos that Bautista is certainly not front of mind for.
