Answer: Robinson Canó

His outstanding 17 year career is going to draw Hall of Fame discussion in a few years time, but Robinson Canó didn't do much of that in Atlanta. In fact, Canó got just 27 plate appearances for the Braves, but that stint was the last baseball saw of him at the Major League level.

His career numbers will spark HOF discourse to be certain, despite the suspensions served due to PED use. Canó had a career slash line of .301/.351/.488, hit 335 career homers, drove in over 1,300 runs, had a 68.1 career bWAR, and finished top six in MVP voting five straight seasons from 2010-2014.
