Answer: Rafael Furcal 

Rafael Furcal began his MLB career with the Atlanta Braves. The then 22 year-old finished the season as the Rookie of the Year.

Furcal was a reliable player who brought a lot to the game. Despite his small stature, he had a powerful bat for a lead off hitter in the 2000s era of baseball. The switcher hitter also had a cannon for an arm. Although he spent as much time with the Dodgers as he did for the Braves, Furcal will be remembered for his time in Atlanta.
