Answer: Justin Upton

Justin had a much more successful couple of seasons in Atlanta when compared to his older brother B.J. Unfortunately, his tenure was short-lived thanks to the decision to go full rebuild following the 2014 season. Upton was traded to San Diego in December of 2014 in a trade that brought the Braves back Max Fried.

Stretching his big league career across 16 seasons is impressive stuff from J-Up. He was a highly touted prospect in 2007, and lived up to the high expectations for the most part. With a career .261/.342/.469 slash line, 325 homers, 151 stolen bases, and 32.3 bWAR, Upton was one of the more feared hitters in baseball for quite awhile.
