Answer: Ryan Langerhans

Ryan Langerhans was drafted by the Atlanta Braves in 1998. He stayed with the organization and made his MLB debut with Atlanta in 2002 at the age of 22. 

Langerhans was with the Braves until a few weeks into the 2007 season. Over his stretch with Atlanta, he appeared in 296 games. Langerhans hit .243 with 15 home runs and 71 runs batted in during that time. 

The left-handed outfielder may not have been a superstar but he did what Atlanta needed him to do on the teams he was a part of. He was a solid defender who could track down a fly ball and come through at the plate on occasion.
