Answer: Wes Helms

Wes Helms began his MLB career with the Atlanta Braves in 1998, four years after the franchise selected him in the 10th round of the MLB draft. Helms played first base and third base when he was in the field. He was also utilized as a pinch hitter when the situation called for it.

Between 1998-2002, Helms appeared in a total of 198 games. Over this stretch, he had a batting average of .234 with 17 home runs and 60 runs batted in. Wes Helms is one of those players who gets forgotten in Braves history because of his short stint in Atlanta and underwhelming performance.
