Answer: Martin Prado

Martin Prado began his MLB career with the Atlanta Braves in 2006 at the young age of 22. He was with the organization until the start of the 2013 season.

Prado was and will always be a fan favorite in Atlanta. He played the game hard all the time and produced no matter where he was needed. He made appearances all across the diamond. He played the infield, outfield and was even listed as the team's emergency catcher.

Martin Prado could also be plugged into the batting order anywhere 1-9 and do exactly what was needed to put the Braves in a position to win. Although he may not have many individual accolades, Prado will be a Braves legend according to many fans.
