Braves Collection: Anthony Lerew

2004 Topps #298

Yet another pitching prospect that just didn’t pan out. Three cups of coffee with the Braves, and he didn’t exactly set the world on fire. He would go on to have Tommy John surgery in 2007 and would return in 2008, but wouldn’t get a call up. He was released this spring to make room for Tom Glavine on the 40 man roster. Lerew was eventually signed by that favorite dumping ground for ex-Brave prospects, the Royals.

Will he make it as a big leaguer? Who knows. There were questions about his attitude and now coming off the injury …
Blah. 2004 Topps. Blah. Not bad mind you. Just, blah.
