Lee Hyde is an Atlanta kind of guy. After growing up just south of the city, in Fayetteville, Ga., Hyde spent three years at Georgia Tech before getting drafted by the Braves in the fourth round in 2006. Despite encountering a road block in the form of Tommy John surgery midway through his first four seasons in the organization, the lefthanded reliever could be a candidate for the big league bullpen in 2010.
