Answer: Reed Johnson

Reed Johnson was drafted by the Blue Jays out of Cal State Fulerton in 1999. He made his MLB debut in 2003. It was not until 2012 until Johnson put on a Braves uniform.

In his two seasons with the Braves, Reed Johnson was used as a role player. During this time, the Braves had a power heavy offense that had no room for him but he was great to give regulars days off or pinch hit/run in late innings depending on matchups.

He only appeared in a total of 117 games in two seasons with Atlanta where he hit .256 with only 1 home run and 15 runs batted in.
