Though manager Tony Muser had high hopes for Dye, he spent much of '97 and '98 on the disabled list with various injuries, including torn cartilage in his knee, sustained when he was getting into a car in August 1998.
His anonymity since discarded by 2000, the multi-tooled Dye was seen as a player who could revive the lagging club, and with Sweeney, leadoff sparkplug Johnny Damon, and steady Joe Randa, the Royals were looking for a playoff berth.
Dye is the first Brave to debut with a homer since Chuck Tanner did it on April 12, 1955.
