Answer: Javier Vázquez

Long time starting pitcher Javier Vazquez made his way around the big leagues across his 14 year career. His lone season with the Braves in 2009 was perhaps the best of his career. Across his 32 starts in 2009, Vazquez posted a career best mark in both ERA (2.87) and FIP (2.77).

Oddly enough, his arrival to Atlanta came via trade with the White Sox in which the Braves sent a package of prospects, headlined by Tyler Flowers, to acquire Vazquez and relief pitcher Boone Logan. After the stellar 2009 campaign, Atlanta traded Javier to the Yankees in exchange for Melky Cabrera, Mike Dunn, and Arodys Vizcaíno.
