Answer: Brooks Conrad

The Houston Astros selected Brooks Conrad in the 8th round of the 2001 MLB draft out of Arizona State University. He did not make his MLB debut until 7 years later with the Oakland A’s. 

Conrad was with the Braves from 2009-2011. During this time, he served as a role player that could hit from either side of the plate in a pinch. 

In his three seasons with Atlanta, Conrad hit .233 with 14 home runs and 54 runs batted in. These statistics may be a culmination of three seasons but it only was across 225 games.
