At 38-years-old Utley can still provide a consistent bat with power and the veteran leadership to help a young team. Tampa Bay, Kansas City, and San Diego could each use a second baseman. Toronto could, in turn, use a veteran to help 25-year-old Devon Travis in his development.
Being with the Rays, Royals, or Blue Jays could intrigue Utley as a designated hitter. With the once chronic knee pain seemingly gone, Utley managed to hit 14 home runs in 138 games last year for the Dodgers. Toronto and Kansas City also present Utley with an opportunity to win another World Series.
