Answer: Erick Aybar

For much of his career, Aybar was the table setter and reliable glove at shortstop for the Los Angeles Angels. By the time he made his way to Atlanta in 2016 his skill set was becoming less saught after in baseball.

That said Aybar provided a lot of good years on the infield and is pretty popular out in Anaheim. He may not get the same affection from Braves fans, but that has a lot more to do with the stage of his career he was at during his stint with the Braves.
