Answer: Mallex Smith

Once a promising Braves prospect, Mallex Smith debuted with the Braves in 2016 during their rebuilding years. The following season he was traded to Seattle for Luis Gohara. His best season as a pro came in 2018 with the Rays, where he slashed .296/.367/.406 and had a 115 OPS+ thanks to his AL leading 10 triples.

Smith was a blazer on basepaths leading all of baseball in 2019 with 46 stolen bases. Still just 30 years old, Smith could work his way back to the majors, however his last appearance in a big league game came with the Mariners back in 2020.
