Answer: Chris Johnson

Chris Johnson began his MLB career in 2009 with the Houston Astros. He found his way to the Atlanta Braves in 2013 and stayed until the middle of 2015.

Over this stretch, Johnson hit .283 with 24 home runs and 137 runs batted in. Johnson fit in perfectly with the Braves roster that was loaded with power. With the protection he had in front and behind him in players like Freddie Freeman, Justin Upton and Evan Gattis, Johnson was given a lot of good pitches to hit and took advantage.

Chris Johnson ended his MLB career after just eight seasons following the 2016 season. He is a former Brave that people tend to forget about because of the incredible players he was around that stole the spotlight and the fact that he was part of the beginning of an Atlanta rebuild.
