Answer: Derek Lowe

Derek Lowe was drafted by the Seattle Mariners in the 8th round of the 1991 MLB draft. It was not until 1997 at the age of 24 that Lowe made his MLB debut. He hung up the cleats at the age of 39 after the 2013 season.

Lowe was in the Braves starting rotation from 2009-2011. During that time, he was 40-39 with a 4.57 ERA. When the Braves signed Lowe to a four-year contract, this was not exactly what they had in mind.

During all three seasons, Derek Lowe was in an Atlanta Braves uniform, and the team finished 2nd or 3rd in the division. We all know that the expectation is for this team to win the NL East every season and anything less than that is underachieving. Unfortunately, Lowe was a contributor to those unwanted results.
