Answer: Jordan Schafer

Jordan Schafer was selected by the Atlanta Braves in the third round of the 2005 draft. His pitching career did not pan out so he made the transition to outfielder. Thanks to his great speed and arm strength, this was an easy transition defensively for Schafer but hitting was a bit of a struggle.

In 2009 with the Braves, Schafer only hit .204 in 50 games. In four seasons with Atlanta, Schafer's collective batting average only reached .224. However, he was a player that played to his strengths. When the opportunity came, he was not afraid to lay down a bunt for a hit. If he got on base, he was not afraid to take off. Schafer stole 54 bases in a Braves jersey.

He hung around in the MLB until May of 2015 after playing only 27 games with the Minnesota Twins that season.
