Dotel, 38, pitched for the Blue Jays and Cardinals last season and the Pirates, Dodgers and Rockies in 2010. He'll break the record of 12 teams he held along with first baseman/DH Matt Stairs and left-hander Ron Villone. Both Villone and Stairs finished their career with the Nationals, one team Dotel hasn't played for, so there's always a chance for 14. If Dotel pitched for two more teams, he'd have played for half the teams in baseball.
"After being all over the place, that's good," Dotel told MLB.com's Jason Beck when asked about the record. "Matt Stairs was the guy. He played [close to] 20 years. I've played a lot fewer years . I'm very happy I've got the record, and I hope to keep going."
Here's a visual of Dotel's 12 previous teams in chronological order:
