Answer: Matt Adams

Matt Adams, or "Big City", started his MLB career with the St. Louis Cardinals back in 2012 at the age of 23. He came over to the Atlanta Braves in 2017 in the midst of a rebulding team to counter a Freddie Freeman IL stint.

Adams played well for the Braves in 2017. He appeared in exactly 100 games. He hit .271 with 19 home runs and 58 runs batted in over this stretch.

Atlanta brought Adams back during the Covid season of 2020. He played only 16 games during that year but the whole regular season was only 60 games long due to the pandemic. Adams did hit two home runs and drove in nine during this stretch.

Matt Adams played the game calm, cool and collective. He quickly became a fan favorite among Braves country in 2017 thanks to his positive attitude and production at the plate.
