Brian Hunter began his MLB career in 1991 with the Atlanta Braves at age 23. He finished 4th in Rookie of the Year voting that season and showed a lot of promise.

However, Hunter ended up bouncing around a lot in his nine years in the league and ended up compiling a pretty underwhelming career hitting .234 and spending a lot of time as a backup.
